Shower invitations


Not sure how it got to be Monday morning so quickly. Someone must have stolen part of my weekend! Alert the police! Many of them wear blue uniforms so they could be photographed for another Blue Monday entry!

I showed these sample invitations to Kim and she picked the one on the right with the hang tag. I hope I can still get the "it's a boy!" paper if I don't have enough. The baby bottle was cut with a die from Sizzix.

Inside information still needs to be finalized and printed. I will check with the post office this week to make sure that the bow won't necessitate hand canceling which would up the postage considerably. This wouldn't be bad for a few invitations, but it looks like I need to make fifty of them.

Hopefully I will get the basic cards cut this week. I don't want the invitations to be lost in holiday mail, so my goal is to have them go out the first week of January, requesting RSVPs by the end of the month for a February 7th shower.

I hope everyone is having a glorious Blue Monday. Check in at Smiling Sally's blog to join in. I will be out most of the morning, so it may take me a while to get around to visiting all the participants, but I will get there. I enjoy seeing what everyone finds to share.

That is such a cute invitation, but I can see it as an announcement too. Happy Blue Monday.

I had to turn on the word verification feature because spammers were having too much fun. It took too much of my time to delete their stupid commercial comments. Do they really think that works? I don't. Maybe one day, I can eliminate the word verification feature again. sigh.

What cute invitations. It will be a lot of work to create 50 of them, but totally worth it. I hope you have a great Blue Monday.

Knitty, those invitations are as cute as can be! I like both of them, so I would be hard pressed to pick.

I'm sorry I missed you on Blue Monday. I didn't post because I had workmen slated to be here. Hope yours was happy!
