Special Delivery!!

02/27/2011 Baby Shower #1
 Today I delivered 35 baby shower invitations to my good friend Melissa who is hosting a baby shower for a mutual friend of ours, Heather.  The baby's room is painted in colors that are very close to Certainly Celery and Soft Suede with a puppy theme. 

Heather made a real cute baby blanket with the same colors  and
adorable little puppies.  When I saw the blanket, I just knew I had to use the puppy from the Every Little Bit stamp set.  Don't you just love the Very Vanilla on Very Vanilla combination?  It is so clean looking.  Of course I had to use my Sizzix Top Note die on this one. 

02/27/2011 Baby Shower #2
When I first became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator over 4 years ago, I was asked by my friend Connie to make baby shower invitations for a friend of hers that was hosting a shower.  It was only after I agreed to it that I learned that the expecting mom was the wife of a high school friend of my husband and mine.  Actually, to be more accurate, the high school friend was my husband's best friend's older brother.  We hadn't seen them in years so it was a nice little surprise to find out they were having another baby. 


02/27/2011 Baby Shower #3

Unfortunately, back then I didn't make an invitation for myself to keep.  I didn't even take a photo of it.  I so wish I would have because it was very adorable.  I used a light purple for the card base, stamped a cute little flower, colored it in, did the actual printing on vellum and secured it with a little ribbon and brad.  I think I'll try to recreate the invitation within the next month.  So come back soon to take a look at it.
