my weekend

Yesterday I went to see my friend Louisa, took her her copy of the baby shower invite, which she loved. She immediately got out her baby record book that her sister bought her and said it will be kept forever in here! (she still has my first card on her fridge!)

on the inside;

Louisa your baby boy is on the way
So let’s get you prepared for the big day,
With a big girlie party on the 30th of May
Especially for you, what do you say?

A little get together will be such a treat,
In honour of you and someone
we just can’t wait to meet!

Bottles and booties and bibs and more,
There will be food and games
and gifts galore!

The place to be is at your mum‘s,
7pm sharp for lots of fun
So please accept this invitation to
Celebrate you becoming a fantastic mum!

Went for a walk with her dog, then on to lunch and after went shopping for baby things - was a lovely day with my friend, was only meant to pop and see her in the morning whilst her partner was at work but didn't get home til gone 4.30pm. Where my little cat Tia was waiting for me on the wall outside our house as I got out the car.

Last night she was knocked over by a car, poor little girl. A neighbour came and and got us, there son saw it. Jon brought her in, her brother came down the stairs and just walked passed her wanting to go out. Will be getting out some photo's and making a scrapbook. Perfect little cat so friendly and I will miss her everyday. She was my alarm clock she would wake me up every morning by coming a sitting on me for a cuddle. Buried her in the garden today - so so sad. Got to watch her brother now, make sure he's ok. The dogs know something's up and are coming to us for lots of cuddles.

baby shower invites

I'm organising a baby shower for my friend Louisa who is expecting a boy and due 17th June. I haven't actually been to one but hope it will be fine! I emailed her mum and boyfriend a while ago to see their thoughts. Got a list of people she wanted to invite and went to see her Mum and made arrangements. We're having the party at her Mum's new house (mine's too small unless we had a bbq!) which she's doing up so think she will like having everyone over :)

Used the same idea as the baby card I made recently (as had some lovely comments on Flickr) and printed the inside of the invite. Ran out of bits couple of times and had to pop to Hobby Craft for more supplies! Posted them all by hand and asked everyone to get a picture of them under the age of 5 for one of the games we are hoping to play - Guess who! I put a note in the Grandmother-to-be's card asking for a few pictures of her son so that we can make copies and have a game of make the baby, cutting out parts of the Mum & Dad-to-be when they were little.

Supplies: Cardstock; Core'dinations;
Patterned Paper; Doodlebug Designs:
Stamps; Hero Arts; Ink; Brilliance Dew Drop;
Ribbon: Papermaina & Hobby Craft; Other: Sewing machine

I have made the following one for the Mum-to-be;

Just need to decide on how to change the wording on the inside of the card for her. Would have liked to use the lettering on all the cards but would have worked out expensive.

I want to make announcement cards and thank you cards with a similar theme and give them to her as one of her presents.
