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.
