Even More Party Hearty!

Okay, are you getting sick of this Party Hearty set yet?! I was so tired Tuesday night (mostly from staying up until 1 a.m. Monday night because a nap messed me up!), but I forced myself to stay awake...no naps...and make a card! A lady in the office mentioned her birthday was today, so I thought it would be nice if we had a big card for everyone to sign.

I've had these bright, fun envelopes from Tuesday Morning forever (see detail below), so I designed the card to go with. I forget what size you call this long envelope, but I measured the envelope and then made the card 9 1/4" x 4". Since we don't have Kiwi Kiss & Baja Breeze markers, I just stamped extra party hats and glued them down over red hats randomly. Pretty simple card, I hope she likes it. Since I'm based out of the admin. offices now, this will be the first time these co-workers have seen my *crafty* side! hee! hee!



We have two different schools, and we finished testing the first one Tuesday, ahead of schedule. I knew a few of those kids from teaching summer school a year ago, so it was good to see them again. Today I'm super excited because we'll be testing at my old school where I can see *my* kids, who are in the 4th and 5th grades now. Can't wait! I also have another stamp club tonight, so it's going to be a really fun day!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

This is adorable. I can't believe people weren't falling over themselves with praise of it. The nerve of some people to not recognize the talent you have.

Honestly, it is stinkin' cute!
