Tinkerbell Party

My little kindergartener was invited to a Tinkerbell birthday party last week. She was so excited. She got off the bus carrying the invitation so carefully. It was wrapped in purple ribbon and she couldn't wait to open it. There were sparkly jewels on the invitation. It was really pretty. So while she was at school the next day, I made this card for her, trying to keep with the theme of the invitation and make it purple and sparkly. It was so cute when I showed it to my duaghter. She said, "Thanks, mom. It's pretty. But I want to make her my own card." So she did. And she loved every minute of it. So now I have a sparkly "tinkerbell" birthday card to throw in my stash. I'm hoping to not go so MIA this week. It seems that adding just one extra kid to the school activities mix has made life a lot more busy than last year. The kids are having a blast, but I'm already looking forward to fall break ;)

This is lovely! My daughter likes to make her own cards too but she "lets" me give the one I made too.

Fall Break sounds wonderful!

I love the colors on this! That purple ribbon is soooo pretty! I know how that goes, my daughter had to make her own birthday party invitations to go along with the Tea Party ones that I made :) I sent both of them in the envelope!

Oh they're so grown up wanting to do their own thing! This is perfect for a Tink birthday - - the right colors...and the sparklies..and with a base of Ripe Avocado!!! you can't go wrong. I was going to be a smart-aleck and post on your last post (Wednesday) where you said "is it really Wednesday?" - - I was going to post and say "no, it's Saturday, now where's your post?!" *giggles*
