WEDDING SHOWER INVITATION

you should have arrived here from pats place: http://www.micraftygal.blogspot.com


i have the pleasure of hosting a shower for my daughter in law to be this september.  i'm so excited, i get to make the decorations, and just get involved.  i love it.  more things i'll share later, but mostly i'd like to share with her first before ya'll.  i'm sure you understand.  but this invitation, i had plenty of help from my grandkids.   i just can't seem to keep them little fingers out of my craft room.  especially when i have 'important projects' i'm working on.  anyway.......................................i'm sure nicki won't mind me sharing this 'one little project'.



i have several carts with umbrellas, but i chose this one from 'SWEETHEARTS' because of the delicate little 'thingys', heck i don't know what you call them...but they're very feminine and just plain pretty.  i cut the umbrellas on my gypsy w@3.61 and h@2.76
bridal shower was cut w@3.73 and h@2.05 
i cheated a little, and don't recommend doing, but my emergency was, i only had one sheet of this pretty pink background paper.  it was perfect for this project.  it's all about 'love- script' sweet sentiments.  so...this is the naughty, but shhhhh don't tell anyone.  i cut this from a 12"x12" sheet a piece @ 8 1/2" X 11".  i scanned it and printed off on white cardstock what i needed.  i'm sorry if you made this paper, but i bought it years ago, don't know where i got it from.  and do you really think i'd find it if i went shopping???  not!  so a crafter had to do what a crafter had to do.
thanks for taking the time to visit.  i hope you enjoyed my invitation. 

oh...before i forget, i used a teardrop hand punch for the raindrops.  after all, 'IT IS A SHOWER'.
(((hugs)))
