First Birthday INVITES & other CARDS

I just completed the illustrations & design for these birthday invites. If you didn't notice, it's her FIRST BIRTHDAY!

Here are some sketches that I created prior to the actual note card layout.

The name and most of the lettering is hand-drawn. The frames for the pictures and the cupcakes are also hand-drawn. Eventually, I digitally altered it all in Photoshop. And all of these sketches of cupcakes made me hungry for one. So now I may need to bake some cookies, because I have all of the ingredients for that.
1st BIRTHDAY - proof

If you want me to create a custom illustrated invitation for your upcoming events, I'd be happy to help you out. Just send me a quick e-mail.

And on the topic of note cards and whatnot, I intend to post some Christmas and other "special occasion" cards for sale in my etsy shop soon. And I also have a few new illustrations for the occasion this year. So stay tuned.

OK. OK. It may seem a bit soon for this, but I know that many of you do not procrastinate the way that I do. Due to this, you actually get your holiday cards sent out before Christmas. I usually wait too long to even send them out at all. Plus, a lot of stores that I've recently visited are already getting their holiday cards all set up.


  1. This is awesome!!! I may have to have you do some for Kennedy's first next year! She is only 5 weeks .. is it too early to start thinking??? :)

  2. THANKS Heather! From what I understand about motherhood, it's never too early to begin thinking about their 1st birthday. I know it's a very special day...
