2 cards and a project

This card is for a neices b-day next month

DD's b-day invites. Simple but I think they are cute. We call her our monkey so I thought they were perfect:)

Back:

They are just 2 sided and fit in a 4x6 envelope.

I finally did Parker's name for his room. I used scrapbooking paper and Mod Podge. I thought they turned out pretty good.

A close up. The edges are sanded so they look distressed. It's hard to see here though.

Just love the card. It is simple and pretty. Love how you did the flower.

The invites are adorable and sounds like they are perfect for her Smile

Parker's name looks great. I like the papers you chose.

Cute card.

Love the monkey!

I always wanted to do letters but with TJ it seemed kinda useless because there were only 2 letters.

You use a layer of mod podge to stick the paper to the letters and then I did 2 coats over the top. THe apaper go a little wrinkly with the glue, but it wasn't bad enough to try to redo:)

It is actually a cardstock that looks like cardboard.

Great job on all of your projects!

The monkey invite definitely will get people's attention b/c it's sooo cute!

The letters came out great! I love the bold primary colors and the sanded edges are a great touch.
