Invitations Galore...

Well, I've been busy cutting, punching and printing invitations for a co-worker of mine. A friend of hers is getting married and she asked me to create invites for the bridal shower. This got me thinking of how I could include my Big Shot with this project and here is what I came up with. I showed her a few samples and then she took them to the bridal party and this is what they agreed on. I had twenty cut when I decided I should find out just how many she would need. The magic number turned out to be 80!

For these invites I decided to make it like a card. The outside holds the poem and the inside has all of the information. I love the colors and how they turned out. I have a little more work to do on them before giving them to her this coming Friday. The kicker for me is that my husband just went out of town for work. He returns Friday night. This leaves me with a house full of young kids, busy schedules, and very limited free time. I guess I'll be burning the candle at both ends.

I would sneak away this Saturday for a breather once he returns...but it will be our youngest childs' birthday. Joshua will be three years old! I'll share more about him later.

For the invites I used:

Cardstock: Rose Red designer series prints paper, Regal Rose, and whisper white
Accessories and Extras: Bigz Dies top notes die, ribbon, flower punch and 3/4" circle punch.

These really were lots of fun to make. Okay...so I am technically still making them but having fun doing it:-)

Well, thanks for stopping by...now go stamp something!
