SIYJ Challenge: Party Related item

German Phrase of the Day: Auf wiedersehen Deutschland! = Goodbye Germany! I can't believe we fly to California tomorrow...our time here has passed so quickly, and so many things have happened. Our daughter is now fluent in German, and while my husband and I can't claim the same, we can certainly get by. And we've seen SOOO much here in Europe. I will really miss our travels, but we knew it couldn't last forever. Who knows...maybe we'll be back in Europe in a few more years. :-) My husband is pushing for Barcelona next.

ETA: Ok, it's Friday morning, we leave for Frankfurt airport in 22 hours, and my house is STILL not all packed!! And what am I doing?? Checking on my blog! I'm sick. Ok...back to work!! :-) PS to my family, all is good, and I'm feeling fine - just don't ask how poor Phil is!

This card was for the last of the SIYJ challenges Charmaine issued Friday night - to make something party related. Since I had already make a treat bag, I figured I should make the pool party invite to go with it! I used a very simple layout, and again used the wonderful Bali Breeze dp (since it goes with my prismacolors so well!) I hand wrote the invite portion on the top, trying to match the type style of the sentiment from the bottom. It was a very quick and simple card, but that's good right now! If you haven't checked it out yet, be sure to check out the Paper Pretties gallery for more cards created for the party, and to just see more great samples made by my fellow Prettie Girls, and customers alike!

Have a wonderful day everyone, and wish my luck tomorrow as we head to Frankfurt to get on our plane! Especially hope that our Business Class upgrades came through!! :-) I could use some comfort right now. I'll try to post when we're in California to let you all know we made it, pets included.
