This Week's Project - Invitations

My neighbor is turning 70 next month, and her husband is throwing a surprise party for her. Since he never asks us for anything, I said "of course" when he asked me to make the invitations. In all, I had one week, full of work and regular tasks, to make 40 invites. At first, I had about 12 completed, and he said he needed them for hand-deliveries. So I still had to make another 28. I finished them last night, addressed them and got them in the mail today.

Here they are:

I had to change up the ribbons because I didn't have enough of any one kind and had no time to get to the craft store to find a new one in a greater quanitity. I like the variety, though, and it's not like people will compare ribbons, right? DP is from DCWV Spring Stack; brown scalloped rectangle is Bazzil in Carob, cut with Nestabilities. The blue layer under the information is from my stash, and the information panel is computer generated. Truthfully, there is no stamping on these invitations. Is that cheating?

This week at work truly was the pits. I can't believe everything that happened! It must have taken its toll on me, because this morning I slept until 9am. I haven't done that since before DS was born!! Today was spent running to the Farmer's Market, and stocking up on some stuff. Tonight and tomorrow are for relaxing and stamping! I played with my new Cuttlebug edging folders today and I love them. There are also new stamps and papers to play with. Oh and the new Tim Holtz ruler :)

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. The weather here is just gorgeous. Thanks for looking!
