more invites



I may or may not have mentioned this, but we have been quite ill in the Rice Home. It all started about a week ago with Andrew and then the illness made its way through each member of the family. We had enough cold and flu symptoms to have us wondering if we were among the many New Yorkers fighting swine flu, but not enough symptoms to get checked out. What ever we had, it was fairly mild and would have been easily manageable if only one of us were sick. Since it was a family affair though, it was a really hard weekend.

One of my goals last week was to make invitations for Andrew's party and get them in the mail and I kept putting it off. I just didn't have it in me. On Friday afternoon, after realizing that I'm really not making many invitations, and I could either get silly and messy or fancy and tricky, I decided to relax a little and go with silly and messy. I got out my paints, mixed up some colors, did some messy stamping, made a grassy fringe and called it a done deal. It turned out to be a fun and relaxing project. Hooray!

So, as of now, we almost all better. Now for some post-illness cleaning....

A construction party! So PERFECT for Andrew! Groundbreaking and contracts... so witty! I love the grass fringe.

I was hoping by the looks of things in your Memorial Day picture that you would all be back to normal but I guess not... I hope you see the last of the runny noses VERY soon!

I love this invitation. Love it! Ghulam is going to have a vehicle theme party of some sort, and I have this stamp set. Thank you for the idea!
