My baby is 5 (yikes)

I'm back from two weeks of company, a birthday party with 12 four, five and six year olds and a vacation with the fandambily. I'm actually looking forward to spending some quality time with myself ... crafting.

I thought that I'd share the invitations that I made for my youngest's birthday party. As you can see, he is HUGE into super heroes (if he had his way, he would sleep in his Spiderman mask every night). So we went with a hero theme. It's a gate fold card and the inside of the card says, "Holy Cake and Ice Cream Batman, it's time for a party"

Since I am a TERRIBLE baker, I asked my buddy Mary Williams to make the cake. The masterpiece she brought to the party was ... well, amazing, see for yourselves.

There are three layers. My favorite part of the cake was the rice crispy treat Spiderman hand with the chocolate webbing. I love how she put TJ's name and how old he is inside the chocolate. Amazing, isn't she?!!

"Where you been?"

OK, it's been awhile since I've posted ... almost 6 weeks in fact. It is just so darn hard to find time to craft in the summer. The boys and I have been having a great time swimming, skating, playing and reading. Today was pajama day. We had waffles and spent the entire day in 'jammies (well, I had to change out of them at 4 to mow the lawn ... couldn't see mowing in fluffy slippers!)

I'm excited to start showing you some of the cards I'm creating for DRS Designs. I've admired DRS stamps for some time now and was really excited when I got the call to design.
