My own little corner to create pretties among a house full of little men

My Goodness!!! Does anyone else really believe that today is Friday? It has been a very short week here for me. I have no idea what happened. I am happy and sad all at the same time. Time...seems to be slipping away from me. My baby is 9 months old, as of the 2nd, my oldest will be 7 in two weeks, and my middle precious boy will be 5 next month and starting kindergarten next fall, well, summer. I am not sure what I am going to do home all day with just me and the little guy. I am thinking my house is going to be quite spotless, either that or a messy house because little man and I have been playing all day long. Only time will tell and time can drag on.
Anyway, speaking of my oldest little man turing 7 in two weeks. We are doing his birthday party a week early because we are heading out to Wisconsin to visit my sister the week of Thanksgiving.
I had to rush and get the invitations done last night because the plan was to have them to the kids today so they had time to make plans or change plans if they so chose. I say that was the plan but that isn't what happened. Again, this morning we had a little extra time so I wasn't going a million miles an hour. That is until I saw the clock and realized we should have left the house a couple minutes prior. In my haste to get all 3 boys out the door I forgot the invitations. I was going to bring them up to the school during recess (we couldn't invite all the kids so I wanted to hand them out secretly so we didn't hurt feelings) but my little man wasn't cooperating so the invitations will have to wait until Monday.
I started by asking my big boy what he wanted on his card. He chose super hero Billy from Pink Cat Studios. He also wanted to color them. I asked him his favorite color (because it changes often) and he chose green, specifically New Leaf green from PTI.
The background was stamped with Wplus9 Design Bacics: Background 1 stamp set in vintage cream. The ribbon is fine linen colored with copics. The sentiment is from PTI's very first set (Paper Tray). The buttons were just in my stash.
I didnt' have any stamps to use on the inside so I just wrote out all the details. I wanted to make it simple since I had to mass produce. The cards are 4 1/4 X 3, a perfect size for invitations, just wish I had a smaller envelope to put them in.
I hope you have a great weekend. This Sunday is my husbands birthday. We aren't doing anything special, maybe take the kids to watch "Megamind" but that is about it. If he ever tells me what kind of cake he wants I will make that. He already bought his own birthday presents so I don't have to worry about that.
