 Hello and Happy Thursday to you all.  I have been working really hard on my sons invites, goody bags and Thank you cards for his birthday in early October. We are really excited this year, because we are going to fulfill his dream of becoming a Cowboy. We are going to go horseback riding as a family for the first time. This is going to be an exciting experience that I just can't wait for.

 I was sitting around with some of my crafty friends and told them about Anthony's party. So the next thing I know, I received a picture text of a sample invite. It was so cute, I asked Cecy if I could duplicate it, and she said of course. Thank You Cecy , you can find her blog her She is a very talented crafter.

  I did add a few things to it though. My son just simply loves Mator from the movie Cars, so of course I had to add him on his invite. I also added 5 horses to represent him turning 5 years old. I also added some sewn in rope to give it a little more of a western feel to it. I just love how they came out.

Because this is a Horseback riding party/park party I added some Tim Holtz tickets with the same horse punch and I also used my Pink By Design western stamp set(not sure what its called duh!!)
So I added tickets to some of my invites, unfortunately I was not able to put them in all the invites, due to limited horse availability (and funds too).

  I did have left over card stock, so I decided to make matching goody bags for all the kids. I also used my new Pink by Design stamp set. I love them, they are way too cute. I did use the same rope to make sure they matched my invites.

 I also had enough of the matching card stock left over to make thank you cards. I also added some of the same horses on because they are just way too cute.

  I have been working on these for the last 3 weeks, and I can now say I am done and ready to celebrate his birthday. My son is growing up so fast, but I am very proud of him and I love him so much. I will do anything to make him happy.

 I hope you've enjoyed my post today. Have a great day.

 Hope to see you soon
