Be Jolly - Party Invitation

I sent out the last of the party invitations so I thought I would get them posted on here for you guys to see.

Supplies Used:
Cricut 3 Birds On Parade
Cricut Art Philosophy
Various patterned papers
Various cardstock
Decoart Snow Writer
Signo UM 153 gel pen
Stampin Up marker
Diamond Stickles

I used the Hallmark Software to do the inside of the card and came up with sentiment on my own. I know, I know, not too original but it works! Noticed I blotted out my address and time, didn't want a bunch of unexpected guests showing up at my party!! *okie falls out chair laughing*.

I wasn't sure what color to make the bird and actually wanted a red bird but thought it would be too much with the hats and boots he is wearing so I opted for the blue bird. I used DecoArt Snow Writer for the "fur" on the hat and the ball. I used the white gel pen to add a few highlight marks.

The "Be Jolly" is from the 3 Birds cartridge as well. I went over the green with Diamond Stickles and it looks a lot better in person than in the picture. 

A few of my guests have contacted me to let me know they got their invitation and how they just thought it was "the cutest thing".

And as much as I would love to stay and chat a bit I just don't have the time right now. I am beginning to feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland...I'M LATE! I'M LATE! I'M LATE FOR VERY IMPORTANT DATE! NO TIME TO SAY HELLO GOODBYE! I'M LATE! I'M LATE! I'M LATE! Okay maybe not late, but always in a hurry these days!
