This week The Bubb turns one, yes ONE. Amazing how fast the time has gone, so much has happened in the past 365 days. They change so quickly at this age and it seems that every hour he is learning and doing something new and different.
We decided to have a little party for him next weekend and theme it after the card game UNO. In order to accomplish this the first thing we needed was to have invitations. Using a classic UNO card as my model (not those new fancy ones, but the vintage kind) I scanned it and then changed it up in Photoshop so that the back of the card would be like the back of the playing cards and then the front is the same as the 1 card for the game.
I shifted the 1 away from the center and added all the party information. I had them printed on cardstocky paper at Kinkos (or are they called FedEx now?) as our 15 year old home inkjet printer wouldn't have been able to produce the quality that I wanted. They were printed so that when cut the front and back image would line up resembling the playing cards. I cut them myself and then round the corners so that they looked like the cards from the game.
Then I sealed them up in some brightly colored envelopes that I found in the clearance section at Michaels, cause they get tossed anyway!
