Winnter Fun Birthday

Hello!  I hope that you are having a good week!  Things over here are going okay.  Ariel stayed home sick from school today as she had a fever and sore tummy!  She sick but not terribly, seems to be fine for a bit than spent the afternoon on the couch!  I hope she gets better fast as Friday is her Valentine's day party at school and Ariel loves Valentines Day!  There is one good thing about when your kids get sick, all the extra cuddles! 

On Friday I realized that I did not have birthday cards for the two birthdays we had on Saturday!  ACK!  How did I let this happen to myself again?  Than I had to go work Friday night so I had to make them Saturday morning by noon!  Both parties were for kids, one a classmate of Ariel's and the other our nephew.  Both parties were outside, fun in the snow parties (it was a nice winter day thankfully!)  I decided to make similar cards and I wanted to make them wintery but not Christmassy.  And I had to make them fast!  I also had to wrap the gifts, why do I always wait until the last minute with that too, oh I know because Carter would open them!




I thought that the Lawn Fawn sledding bunny was perfect for a winter fun party!  I embossed the snowflake background to go with the winter theme, and used some kiddie patterned paper!  The girl is cosmo cricket and the boys is kauser kraft from ages ago! I paper pieced the scarf and the bunny is adhesive felt that I stamped and cut out!  I stamped the bunny and sentiment and colored it before embossing!  I added some fun yellow twine by The Twinery to the girls card as it need it but I thought the paper alone was good for the boy card!  I am happy with how these turned out, especially under pressure!  By the way Ariel had a lot of fun at the girl party with her daddy, I enjoyed some time with Carter at home and we both had a great nap, lol!  The second party was right after and was fun too, Carter loves being outside too!
