4th of July Invites

Good morning!! All is FANTASTIC here in New England our Bruins won the Stanley Cup (sorry Marlene :(. We are on cloud nine and very sleepy!! Having a house full of males, you can only imagine how my house was last night!

I have 4th of July at my house each year and I like to make invites. This year I kicked it up old school and didn't use the Cricut (gasp, I know). I used stamps, ink, paper and perfect pearls. I have to say I love how they came out. I am entering these in our good friend Rhonda's Decorate to Celebrate blog, http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/ They have a 4th of July theme going on over there, you need to go and check them out!! Their design team came up with some really cute ideas!
