Party season has started!

I know, I know, I have been a VERY BAD blogger, but I promise I will try to do better. It seems that with the warmer weather starting, everybody in South Africa has a child that is having a birthday party. I have been very busy making invitations. Trust my friends to wake up the day before the invitations have to go out and then phone me in a panic for help.
It has been so hectic that I literally made the invitations with mom waiting and grabbing them as I finish, so unfortunately there are no photo's of the Dinosaur or Lady Bug invites.
These ones are for a friend's 11 year old daughter. She wanted an Ice Skater and it had to be blue. Problem was I had no stamps with an ice skater. After a long search I found an image on a children's coloring page. She was resized and coloured with my Copics. The snowflakes, her shoes and swirls were glitterified with stickles. All paper is Bazzil. No dp this time. I had to make 10 invitations and here they all are.
I have been very busy as I said. It was Tertia-Lee's 4th birthday last week and we had two parties. One on her actual birthday, just for family and one on the 9th for her little friends.
Here she is, my beautiful girl blowing out her candles. She insisted that since she is 4 now, she needs to cut her own cake. Just look at the concentration and joy on that little face!
Have a great Friday everybody, hope to see you soon!
