First Birthday


I just love this set from Crafty Secrets called "Birthday Kids". It has a lot to the set and I love the adorable, chubby-cheeked children in the set. My grandson turns 1 in a few weeks so my daughter and I made up 10 of these invitations to send out to friends. The set has single candles so you can use the number corresponding with what birthday it is. It also has all the numbers from zero to 9 so you can get a lot of use out of it. We used DP from SU's Summer Picnic. I colored the image with Copic markers and drew my own string for the balloon. My ovals were cut with my Nesties. That's it - pretty simple but rather cute, don't you think? Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're having a good week.
