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 email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
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'.
