a little applique

our little friend had a birthday a few weeks ago so i thought i’d make a little something special for her. i’ve been playing around with appliqués : lots of monogram shirts have been made lately : but this time i went a step further with a true design and some layers. i’d love to figure out how to stitch around the details, but i’m not quite that skilled on a sewing machine.

30th birthday

my best friend celebrated her 30th birthday last weekend. her husband wanted to throw her a surprise party {oh how they just LOVE surprises}, but since they are currently living with us, and i am horrible at keeping surprises {oh how i just DESPISE surprises!}, we opted for a party that she knew about. it was great to have some friends over for delicious appetizers, the always amazing costco carrot cake {i’m a firm believer in homemade desserts, but seriously, this cake is the best}, no kids and gorgeous summer weather.

the invitation was fun to create. her favorite color is green, so i went with a few shades of that. i do love glitter and it was a nice {if not laborious} detail.
