DYSU#88 Birthdays - Party Invitation

Friday is always a busy day for me.  My daughter usually has my car for school and work, and Fridays are usually free for her so I drag her along with me on errands.  We usually go grocery shopping together, or hit the craft stores.  Today I finally found the September issue of CARDS - so excited to see my name in print there for the very first time!!   Pinch me I'm still dreaming!!   After that I had to get to work baking - I made chocolate chip cookies for a picnic my daughter is going to tomorrow with her friends, some for my husband's card game tonight, and of course some to keep at home in my own cookie jar.  So it feels good to finally sit down and relax for a while.

Today I'm playing along at the DYSU Challenge Blog.  The challenge this week is Birthdays!  I know I could always use a birthday card, but how about some invitations?  I made these with Emma from Paper Sweeties special for my bloggie friend Marybeth who has her very own Emma at home - I hope she likes these and uses these invites as a good excuse to have some girl friends over for fun.
I finished off the inside with  stamps for all the party details. 
I'll use any excuse for a party!  Thanks for having a look - have a great weekend!
