Just wanted to drop a line to all of you that posted such sweet comments about my post on dad....I appreciate all your kind words! It does seem that the consensus is...that "daddy's" are such special people...especially to there little girls!! It's like I told my daughter when her paw-paw died...for little girls her daddy is her first love...one that never goes away...that love establishes her trust and desired character in other men for the remainder of her life...I was so very blessed...as I know many of you were, too! Thanks again...for your sweet words.
For now I am really busy...I am giving a wedding shower for my closest friends son and future daughter in law...so I have many things to do to prepare....here is a sampling of the invitations we made to send out...it's a girls only luncheon...so it should be tons of fun...We had fun making these invites...we used the flower stamp with embosser...then sprinkled some really pretty bronze glitter over the embossed flower...then we used the heat thingy for embossing...heated it up and it rose up just like a champ...we then colored in each flower with pastel chalks...using Q-tips...the ultimate painting utensil...I'm sure you can't see it in these "sorry" pictures...but we dotted each flower with a pink stone...and the "i" over her name... This is the outside flap...the picture above is the piece we glued to the inside of the green card stock...her colors are this olive green with beige...we threw the pinks in for drama...and I think her flowers are going to be in the pink family...so this really turned out pretty good if I do say so myself...now I did the "labor" along with my friend (we had to stamp each invitation with 2 of these flowers...plus glue/double side tape them to the green card stock and put the bling on each flower...but my friend designed these on her computer...b/c well...she's more computer savy than me...plus she has a MAC...I'm so envious...I need one for MY creative outlet...doncha think?? !!I will try and remember to take pictures at the shower...I'm not promising anything...but I'll try...if I do...I'll post about it next week!
