This is where I come to be creative with paper, fabric and design.

My Daughter is having......

Twins....yes you read right.....Twins.....a boy and a girl.....;o)
So here are the invitations....all 40 of them.....:o)

The base was a post card that I purchased on Etsy...which I absolutely LOVED.....but it only had one baby...a "pink" baby....I waited a long time to find out that she would be having a boy and a I copied the post card, cut the pink baby out....and painted the blanket white with acrylic paint. Then I painted the blanket light blue, added a bit of shading.....a few dots....and now we have the stork carrying two....a pink and a blue! Her theme is "shabby chic" so I thought this was the perfect thing for her invites......The surrounding boarder paper is from Kay and Co. Julianne paper pack. I loved the blues and the greens. The faintly striped paper is Reel Me In by TCP Studio. The little corners on the "Twins" matches the green in the floral boarder paper but for some reason it looks grey. All in all I like how they came out.....distressed and shabby........a lot of work but I love the colors and how after much finagling....those babies look right at home...being carried by a vintage stork......:o)
