The week of Thanksgiving is always exciting for me! In my mind it is the beginning of the Holiday season and my favorite time of the year! With all the fun and fellowship, comes a lot of hustle and bustle. Each year I vow not to get too stressed. So far, I have not been overly successful but I am slowly learning to take the "little" things in stride and focus on the true meaning of the season. Keeping that in mind, I was faced with 2 "tasks" (although fun) yesterday evening. Since today is the last school day before Thanksgiving, I had to get Rachel's birthday party invitations ready to take to preschool. Also, it is Tuesday and time for a Jacksonbelle Embellishments Design Team challenge. This week we are to use our favorite Jacksonbelle supplies when making a card (narrowing my favs down is a daunting task)! To kill two birds, so to speak, I decided to make a card that would do double duty. Two of my favorite products from JBE are Inkadinkado stamps and Shimmerz. I, also, love the adorable Imaginisce line "Fairest of Them All" and find it perfect for all the little girl projects that I make! Keeping in mind that the card had to be mass produced and that it might be "examined" by curious preschoolers, I decided to be selective with my embellishments. The class has children from 3-5 years of age and I am always careful about including any hard embellishments on projects for the children. When Rachel saw the completed invitation, the look happy look on her face made my night. Of course, she wanted to know if today is her birthday party- it is going to be a long 2 weeks!! Be sure to check out what the other DT Gals have selected as some of their favorite Jacksonbelle Goodies:
