The Race Is On!!!

Wow! I'm so sorry that it has been five days since my last post. There's been so much going on here at the Holston household. It usually gets crazy around here mid-April. There's lots of deadlines to meet. One of the biggest (and highly important) is Adam's birthday party! My baby is turning six! Of course, we always throw him a party and I always make his invitations. This year was no different...other than I had only two days to make them. That's right....the race is on! Of course, he wants a 'race car' party. My one and only set containing a race car is Stampin' Up!'s retired "To The Finish". The thought of coloring a dozen of those cars in less than two days didn't thrill me at all. So, this is what I came up with.
Adam's favorite driver is Jimmie Johnson. And, although this isn't quite Lowe's blue, it certainly made one little boy very happy! Believe it or not, this was a pretty easy card to mass produce. It is a postcard type invite. The punches made it easy! I did the production line deal and "boogity-boogity-boogity" (sorry D.W.) the race was won! Started the cards on Friday and in the mail on Saturday! Now, to come up with a thank you...hmmm...

I hope you've been inspired. Don't let the race to the finish overwhelm you. It's usually the journey between the start/finish that's the most fun!

Thanks for stopping by today!
