GoT Birthday Card using Mama Elephant’s Brand New Dragon Sets

One of my best friends is just now watching (read: bingeing) Game of Thrones, and she’s expressed how the Mother of Dragons is her favorite character. My husband and I are also big fans of the show, and both our kids love dragons, so me owning these dragon stamps was bound to happen. I literally had an alarm set on my phone and placed my order within 10 minutes of Mama Elephant’s release going live.

Birthday Shaker Card

I made this card for one of my closest friends who is celebrating her birthday today. Happy birthday, Kristen!! I’ve seen videos where Nichol Spohr makes shakers and uses the same panel as both the shaker border and the background, so I decided to give it a try with this one.

Mermaid Party Favors

These favor boxes are for my daughter’s preschool classmates, who will be celebrating her 5th birthday in class tomorrow with some yummy donuts! Each box is filled with two tropical fish sticker sheets, three fish erasers, a mini pencil, and some Sixlets candies.

These pads are priced very reasonably, so I was comfortable buying three pads in order to get the 16 boxes in those two colors.

After a month in the NICU, we were finally able to bring her home – well, to a hotel we were living in since our house sold during my 12-day hospital stay before she was born. (Yeah…that’s a whole other post on it’s own.) Anyway, she is healthy, happy, sweet, full of energy, and such a wonderfully kind little person!

When I saw this Scallop Box Card Pop-up die from Lawn Fawn’s recent release, I knew I had to make her invitations with it! Kelly Marie from Lawn Fawn posted a great video on how to assemble the box card, as well as a couple of examples including one with mermaids. Our daughter had requested a mermaid theme for her party this year, so it was meant to be!
