Arrrgh, Matey!

My youngest child is turning 3 in just a few weeks. It's so hard to think that she's growing up so very fast. Anyway, as everyone knows, when a child turns such an important age, a party must ensue! So, in a couple of weeks - just before we leave for the cruise - we will have a fun pirate party for the little pirate princess here at our house. Now, coming up with a QUICK, girly invitation to a pirate party was interesting. I knew that my Cricut was a must. I can cut things so fast with the bug. Below is what I came up with. Yes, it could be more fancy, but I needed 22 of them, so fancy was not in my time allotment.

The cards were designed in the Cricut Design Studio. I used George for the square silhouette around the skull and crossbones, Plantin' Schoolbook for the back of the card, the inside liner of the front, and the hearts in the skull, and Paper Dolls for the skull and crossbones (I LOVE that cart!!). The paper is all SU. I had to use several colors because I didn't have enough of any of them to make all of the invitations. Oh well, variety is the spice of life, right? :) The bow on the front is the small organdy that SU retired some time ago.

Inside the invitations, I adhered the actual invitations. I printed them on computer paper and cut them out. After cutting them, I scrunched them up and inked the edges with basic brown ink.

As usual - let me know what you think!

I have several more projects in line before the cruise. The cruise is coming in only 3 1/2 weeks, too!!!!! :)

Have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow! (and today, too!)
