40th Birthday Invites

Ooooh...halfway through the week already and only two more days at work before I have some time booked off...we seem to be hurtling towards the start of the new school year...I suppose I should get my bum in gear and start labelling up Sophie's new uniform...that's the bit I don't enjoy...YUK!

I thought I'd share some invites with you that my neighbour asked me to make. I have to say I'm loving the black and white design and as I had to make 90 of these the design has been kept pretty clean and simple! Once again my gorgeous daughter Sophie helped me with the die-cutting and sticking of tape etc...thank you are a star!

I'm entering these invites into the following challenges...
Paper Playtime Challenge 53...Anything Goes

Card Stock : White Hammered Card from The Papermill & Black Card from Ebay
Embellishments : Gems from Craft Stash

Wow, that's a lot of invites you had to make Donna! I love the clean and simple design and the black and white look really good together! I can't believe how many you and Sophie had to put together, but they look stunning! My little bro is going up to high school too - I've just finished labelling his uniform - perhaps I shouldn't have told my mum that I took textiles as a GCSE, hee hee!
:) Love, Georgia xx

Donna, you are indeed the crafty Queen of cards! I'm loving the black and white as it has that elegant feel to it - so simple and yet so unique. How sweet of Sophie to assist - a darling daughter of course she is! These are gorgeous as are the ones I've missed commenting on. Yeah, school is coming which means the weather will be letting up - I'm not loving the heat at all. LOL! Have a lovely weekend my friend.
