You're Invited!

Happy Friday! Good grief, I haven't made a post since Sunday, what is this world coming to??? Actually, we had a lovely, fun but busy weekend and I was on a high of sorts, but then it all caught up to me and I was just plain tired. I'm also trying my darndest to fight off some cold bug that had me retiring for the night just after Chester and Pickle Pants all week long! I really was in a bit of a funk, but I think I've managed to snap out of it, hooray for that!
Anywhoo - last post I mentioned that Sunday was the day of the Charity Stamping Pyjama Party! It was a great deal of fun and we managed to raise over $900 for the Chemotherapy division of the Northern Cancer Fun! Woo hoo! Way to go team! For photos and more details, visit Donna's blog here.
The bingo cards above are one of the samples created for the party. We like to try to have lots of cards/projects to share for inspiration at the party. Donna had created a similar version for our friend Stephanie's Bridal shower (using a new SU set), we then created a Christmas version for the Charity event. Whilst we were making these, I decided it would be fun to do a Halloween version, so Donna and I set to it late one night and came up with these. Pickle Pants' birthday is in November and I'm always trying to come up with something different as we can't usually go outside, I run out of ideas quickly. A couple years back, we had a Halloween party that was a great deal of fun, but made for a lot of work considering I had to have another party 3 weeks later to celebrate Pickle Pants' birthday (hubby's happens to be the same day!) So, this year, I decided Pickle Pants gets to celebrate early with a Halloween theme! He thought it a great idea, and so these are the invites. When the new Bo Bunny paper came it over at DAT'S, I was trying to resist the Halloween paper as I don't tend to do too many Halloween projects, but Donna showed me this paper called "Whoo-ligans Monsters" and said "Hey wouldn't these make the easiest invites ever?" I was like, "Oooh, perfect, quick, easy and still handmade!" I'll take it!

I simply cut them apart - 16 to a sheet, all a little different - and added some dimension with google eyes - easy peasy! (and finished EARLY! woo hoooo!)

I apologize for the crumby photos - my editing program keeps cutting them in half rather than cropping proper like, I've never figured out why it does that sometimes..... oh well, I'm sure you'll forgive me! lol
Don't these cuties just make you want to have a Halloween party?!?!?

Here is the back, I simply stamped the "tag" and wrote in the info!
If you're still with me, thanks for visiting! I hope you are having a great day! I'll be around for a visit in the morning!
Cheers,
Shanna :)
