A little baby sweetness ~


I did it!! I made them all ~ each and every little invitation to Emily's baby shower! OMGoodness, never, never balk at the price of handmade cards.....these little things took me all day long to complete! And now I still have to address the envelopes but that shouldn't take too long.

Thank you so much Sandi at Wayside Treasures for my precious vintage image that I used on them! They're quite simple but ended up looking just how I'd imagined......



See the teeny tiny buttons on each corner? I found those on clearance at Hobby Lobby on my b'day...



This is going to be so much fun!! I have several vintage baby planters, most are the sweetest baby lambs ~ well, I plan on making tiny arrangements in them for the tables with fresh pink and white flowers and a little baby's breath! I'm going to have this shower looking like the wedding chapel on Steel Magnolias!!! With plenty of "blush" and "bashful"!

I needed to get these little invitations finished though as they will be going out in the mail tomorrow. Can you believe it's already almost the middle of January??

I hope you have a wonderful Monday dear friends ~ each and every day try to make time to do something you love, something that makes you smile!

xxoo, Dawn

Dawn,
The invitations turned out so adorable. Doing the hsoer will be so much fun for you. =0)

I've spent a good part of last night, and today (barring church, eating, and a nap) going through
your list of 'labels'.
I had so much fun, but full of questions.
First will check all the nice notes bloggers have sent me to make sure i haven't already received 'how to do it's'.

This week i rearrange the store, then next week some much needed creating!!

Blessings on your week.

These are such charming cards. Your work is amazing. Thank you so much for the inspiration. I have boxes of vintage cards & many jars of old buttons (collected over the years for a song :)...you've now given me more ideas to make good use of them. Thanks again.
Warmly,
