Football Punch Art Birthday


It's been rough going in my household the last week, hence the lack of postings.  Last week when my boys began complaining of sore throats and runny noses I repeatedly chanted to myself, "I will not get sick" - right up to the moment I got sick.  Ugh...

But we pushed through because we had a birthday to celebrate!  Our little boy Sawyer turned the BIG 2 last Thursday; leaving baby hood behind and becoming an official toddler.  We celebrated his birthday on Saturday with a football theme based around the Saskatchewan Roughriders.  Here is what the invitation looked like (all the party details were on the back of the invite):

Supplies for the Football Cupcake:

Stamp sets: Delightful Dozen
Cardstock: Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, Gumball Green, Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse
Accessories: Chevron Embossing Folder, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Oval Framelits Collection, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Sponges, White Gel Pen, Tombow Liquid Adhesive, Stylus Tool, Paper Snips

Supplies for Football Invitation:

Stamps sets: N/A
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Garden Green, Smoky Slate
Ink: N/A
Punches: 1 1/4" circle, 1/2" circle, Crop-a-Dile (retired)
Accessories: Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Tombow liquid adhesive, paper snips, paper trimmer

Here are a few of the pictures of the party:
Rider Jersey Cake!

 Rider fan's have a weird obsession with wearing Watermelon's as helmets so this was a perfect table centerpiece!
 Lime Koolaid turned out to be the perfect shade of Rider green!  I printed quick labels on computer paper and taped them to each water bottle.

 Recognize these?  I painted plastic Easter eggs that hinge open to look like little footballs.  Small caramel treats were hidden inside.
 Mmmmm.....sugar cookie footballs were a hit!
 The party crowd ready for some cake :)
The Birthday Boy!

WOW! You are so creative and talented Melissa, the football punch art card and invitation is so adorable. What a great cake, and cookies, and watermelon, you thought of everything! That looks like a lot of time and energy but definitely comes across as a labor of love. What a precious little boy you have! Love your Minion punch art, too, so cute!! Can't wait to watch your video you posted today! Thanks for sharing!
