My daughter and her birthday buddy (only 1 week apart) wanted to have an ABC birthday party and I just couldn't hold back. Here is the invitations we made. Luckily, I had my stamping buddy, Bri, come over to hep me get the colors just right and then make 8 of them! We had so much fun. Thanks for your help. (we used rollers for the cupcakes and the letter background, and then the B is for birthday SU stamp set, added the cupcake from another set)I did a lot of stamping for her birthday party decorations and games.
Like ABC Bingo
and ABC cupcake flags using lots of scallop and circle punches. (the other mom made the cupcakes--they tasted as good as they look!)
I had so much fun making the ABC bouquet. I wasn't sure if it would work, but Bri loaned me a few supplies. So with punches, 2 ABC stamp sets, chipboard letters, embossing, ribbons, skewers & letters from foam ABC puzzles all came together to make the bouquet.
We had tons of letters all over the walls, windows and doors and the kids had a great time hunting for letters everywhere. The girls just turned 4 years old and are SO excited to have learned all their letters! So with stamping stuff (and a few things from the dollar store), we had an awesome alphabet birthday.

I ran out of Thank You cards and have as a result been less grateful than usual. Or at least appeared that way... ;) So I whipped up a few as fast as I could with a fun Spring card making kit from DCWV. I think I'll use the rest to make a few little girl bday cards... Try not to flinch too much--I did these fast.
