Since Connor is a fan of all-things-Mario, we decided to go with that as his birthday theme this year. I got the notion of hand-making his invitations and had an idea in mind that involved buying yellow cards with envelopes that I found at a local craft store. In my mind (which we've already established is filled with delusions), a pack of 10 cards and envelopes means that the cards would actually be folding cards with which to write on the inside. Not so much with the pack that I bought. These were 10 separate pieces of card stock, cut into a size that would fit the accompanying envelopes. So much for my original plan.
I did some searching on the Internet (I cheated on Google and went straight for geekcrafts.com and Pintrest) and got some inspiration. I took those falsely-labeled pieces of card stock and got to work. Pretty happy with the results. Now I just need to work on the party details.
