Rainforest Party Pinata and Invitation

Don't forget to link up to my Marvelous Mess party.... I'll be choosing one project to feature on my sidebar for a week!!
My Munchkin chose a rain forest theme for a birthday party this year. It was funny that it was the happened this past Sunday when Irene came to visit us. We had a tropical rain forest party during a tropical storm.  :-) 
For the invitations I made something very simple using a leafy stamp and a butterfly stamp on some blank cards (one of my hobbies for a while has been to make my own invitations, fancy or not-so-fancy):
To match the card I made a Pinata with tissue paper and glue/water:
I was in love with this pinata. It was so simple to, green, and yellow tissue paper pasted onto the balloon with watered down glue. I'll tell you....this pinata was a tough took 18 kids to bring it down. :-)

I shared this post at the following funky linky parties:

Seal Ya Later!!!!

For the Munchkins birthday I made an interactive card with a harbor seal motto. Everything is seals in our house right now.....Munchkin decided a Seal Party would be perfect. :-) More of my ideas on that to come soon!! Instead of doing a traditional photo tutorial I thought I'd explain it briefly in's a really simple card that doesn't take hardly any time at all to make. 

Bleh, glad I got that over with. :-) I find myself fascinated and horrified at the sound of my own voice on video....hmmm.
This card was inspired by MsChiddy on you tube:
