Let kids be kids ~ and how can you not celebrate that?!

Today is all about celebrating kids!  What better way to get my crafty bum in gear than to make my son's birthday invites!!

Okay:  So what can we make with these?
 How about this?!

These were so much fun!!  And using our White Stampin' Chalk Marker made this SUPER easy! 

 I honestly can say they were all super easy to make
and I cannot tell which one I love more.  We are huge TMNT fans around here and I was so happy to be able to make these for my son.  He's going to flip his soon-to-be 3 year old lid tomorrow when he see's them! (hopefully!!)

  1. My son would love this! But what is the most fabulous is the use of the honeycomb embossing folder for the turtles!!

    1. Thanks Erica! I made one using a brick background...but my son veto'd it saying he liked this version better because it was more like the turtle shells. :)

  2. I absolutely love this card! I like how you did the different expressions for each of them :)

    1. Thanks Shellie! I have had lots of boys are TMNT freaks :) (it also helped that i JUST bought TMNT fabric for their bedroom and just copied their expressions!)
