I made 20 invitations for my SIL baby shower!
All hand drawn.  Our printer broke :(
I let the glitter dry over night.
I LOVE the bakers twine as an embellishment.
My SIL has a jungle dinosaur theme. I thought the palm trees were a nice touch.
I love baby showers.  Maybe I should have been a party planner?
The baby shower is Saturday, FUN FUN!
Looking forward to visiting some Paint Party Friday & In The Studio blogs today!  I've had a super busy last few weeks.  Hard to navigate....the big thing that happened.....our bank account was compromised. CRAZY how that kind of thing can effect everyday life and it drags on forever it seems.  Someone stole our account info using a check. We write checks all the time.  Scary!

Oh my - these are just super cute Tam! Gulp --- hand drawn?! WOWZERS. You go girl! You'd be a wonderful party planner! Love visiting with you; glad to have you on my blog, too... and blessed to read yours!!

These are truly lovely! I can't imagine doing them all individually all by hand! I feel your frustration at having your finances compromised...scary. Especially you would think checks would be safer than credit cards that keep getting hacked into!

Marji said...

Those are soooo incredibly cute. I can't believe you made each one by hand. Beautiful. Happy PPF

Oh I just LOVE these! You did a great job. They're so cute and whimsical! Hope the problems with your bank get straightened out quickly and easily. Thanks for stopping by my blog. My reply to you (since you're a no reply blogger) was...Thanks Tam! I sometimes wonder if I could make art without all those delicious colors. I'm off to visit your blog and to see what PPF is up to this week. Thanks for stopping!

Very cute! And a lot of work too...but the fact that they are all handmade makes them so much more special. Hope the shower was fun!

First off... so sorry to hear about that with your bank account!! I can imagine what a mess that is to straighten out.

These invites are just adorable!! Amazing you did them all my hand... love it! The dino is so sweet. Love the touch of glitter! :)

Oh my word - these are adorable - I can't believe you had to hand draw all 20 of them! they look identical and the finish on the invites is so professional - you've definitely got a career as a unique card designer if not a party planner!!

Kristin said...

Um. Ok! This is BRILLIANT! And because of your printer problems, your sisters guests have an original piece of art each! Lucky ;)
I have a big draw to dinos too as our little girl is going to be a future Paleontologist ;) xoxo
