A Bridal Shower

Hi Friends!
I'm sorry for the lag in posts this week. It's been uber hot here in Seattle and the will to stamp has not been with me when my house is 90 degrees inside! But stay tuned because tomorrow is the Big Birthday Blog Hop for The Greeting Farm!! Woohoo!! Be sure and check back at 9 am CST tomorrow!

Although it's been sweltering, I did finish the invitations I had been working on for my sister's bridal shower. Yay! Thanks to a dear friend who let me borrow this lovely Bridal Party Bellas stamp from Stamping Bella and a very simplistic idea I had in my head, I was able to pull it off all in a few hours! Shhhh, don't tell. I mean--I've been toiling over these invites for months...wink. If you're looking closely you might think I'm not giving people much notice, but the guest list is small and I cleared the date with them months ago, so we're cool :) Also, I erased a few things off the invite in photoshop for privacy, so IRL her last name is included and the text is balanced.

Thanks so much for taking a look at my latest creation! Have a super weekend and hope to see you all back here tomorrow!

I love these clean and simple invites. The dab of color in the bouquet(sp) and the pearl accent are the perfect touches.

Uh! Mary beat me to it. I was just going to say how much I love the clean, simple and elegant design of these. Your sis is a lucky duck and all the ladies will be impressed when they see these in their mail box. To quote Jack (Will & Grace), "Loverly." :D

Those are breathtaking Kadie! I really, really like them!! Just the right amount of subtlety, class and bling! ;)

And about the heat you've been having....have you heard of these things called 'air conditioners'? They're really marvelous contraptions. ;) (((big hugs)))

Very, very pretty Kadie! I do love the CAS cards, and I wish I was better at them. I too adore your splash of color in the boquet, and the pearl. Just beautiful!!
