New Year (almost) - New Posts

Well, one of my resolutions for the new year is to craft more. I just got a new cricut expression and some new cartridges and I have stamps that I've never even used. While I have made some things (just neglected to post them here), most nights I come home and either, do housework or veg on the sofa. So - no more - I hereby resolve to create!

My littlest - Kai - has a birthday coming up. He's going to be six. We talked about themes and decided that we would buy the build-a-bear kits and make them at our house and have a build-a-bear slumber party. He's at my mom's right now and I told him I was working on his invitations. He asked what they looked like and I told him "remember, they're build-a-bear". He said that his friends liked "cool stuff" - NOT teddy bears. Never fails - just like Halloween costumes - they change their minds. However - I have my plans laid. So, I made the card and posted it on facebook with instructions for my mom to show him. He said "Thanks for letting me have my party - I like the card". So...build-a-bear it is!
I'm sure, should you come back - you'll be seeing more build-a-bear - party favors, maybe cupcake toppers or wrappers or perhaps a banner. In the meantime - here is the invitation, using Beary Best Friends from SU and Eat Cake from SU (for the "You're invited"). Cardstock is:Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade and Buckaroo Blue. The dp is My Minds Eye and Basic Grey. The image is colored with copics and the card is accented with buttons. Hope you like!
