ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

It's a Round Up!

A Celebration Cowgirl Style!

I LOVE celebrating my children's birthdays!!! Doing my very best to provide everything they want, I always try to make everything by hand on a budget I can live with. So when my youngest daughter wanted a Pink Cowgirl party for her 6th birthday I couldn't help but get creative right away! For her invitation I decided to make a barn postcard - this allows me to still get creative on the front but not have a lot of bulk in the envelope. I grabbed my gypsy and started designing... Using Create a Critter and Old West Cricut Cartridges I was able to come up with the following Card.

A2 size card - front

The little horse is popped up to add dimension

One thing I love to add is wording that matches the theme of the party we are hosting. This year the invitation reads:

You're WANTED, 
So get your boots on and get into gear, 
We're having a round up to celebrate Carly's 6th year!

Saturday Sept 3rd at High Noon
We'll be havin' Rodeo games and a Western BBQ

Location is our Ponderosa
 Yeah or Neighs to the Sheriff
** Bring your suits for a dip in the watering hole**

I think it's a fun way to personalize the invitation and get all the guests in the mood for the party. Well I have a lot more party planning to do before Sept 3rd but be on the look out for more party ideas for this Cowgirl Round up. :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
