5 more sleeps...

...till my girls night out! Wheeee!

For the past 4 years I have been holding a birthday scrapbooking crop. The only rule I have is that my guests are not allowed to bring a gift or card but instead a $10 donation to the charity of my choice. Charities in the past have included: Children's Health Founation, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and once again this year - Foundation for Ichthyosis and Related Skin Types. As my dear husband never has any ideas for birthday gifts for me he always provides the pizza and beverages for the party. My mom makes the cake and I whip up a few salads. It's a wonderful evening with scrapbooking friends.

I had every intention of making invitations this year. I did. Really. I designed a really pretty one too....but it takes about 15 minutes to make each one and my guest list is currently sitting at 30. My math skills tells me that it would take 450 minutes to make all those cards. Yeah. No.

So, here's the invitation. Check out the cool effect provided by the sanded Core'dinations Black Magic (The Alchemist) cardstock for the night sky. Ooooo....

Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock (Black Magic - The Alchemist and All in the Family - Snowflake), Prism cardstock (flat black), Melissa Frances rubon, Amercian Crafts ribbon, Cricut diecut (Plantin Schoolbook - cityscape), other: bling.
