Woo Hoo - Invites are done!

Just poppin in to say "Hi", welcome my new followers, and thank all of you for your wonderful comments during the Bells'n Whistles Customer Blog Hop.  I hope you got around to every one's blog because there are some gorgeous and inspirational cards out there.  If you completed the hop, don't forget to check
the Bells'n Whistles Inspirational Blog on Friday to see if you are one of the lucky winners of the prizes along the way or maybe even the JackPot.

Finally finished the baby shower invitations for one of my daughter's friends.  Not really what I would have chosen but it's what she wanted so I sure hope she likes them.  Actually, I think ALL 65 turned out pretty cute, but boy, I don't care if I never see another pail with geometrics on it for awhile.....lol  The pail shape is an svg file I got from, OMG...... I can't find the link or the name of the person from where I got it.  I am so sorry!!!  It was resized in MTC and cut on my cutter.  All of the shapes were also cut out and glued together for dimension including the handle.  Really wasn't much to it except all the gluing and putting everything together.  I created the information on the pail shaped tag in Publisher and inserted into the pail.  I can't even imagine sending out that many baby shower invitations for one party so I sure hope they have a good turn out and lots of fun. 

Most of time for the past couple of days have been spent visiting and commenting on every one's blogs that have left comments and on all the BnW blog participants.  If I haven't been around to visit you during all this activity, please leave me a comment and I'll be over before ya know it.  I don't want to miss any of your amazing creations or see what's new with you.

That's it from me for tonight but I'll be back soon.  Tomorrow is hump-day, as we retirees use to say when in the working world, so enjoy the rest of the week, stay safe, and keep creating.
"Love & Hugs" Carol

Wow Carol, that looks like a right tour de force! I can imagine you are a bit 'sick' of the shape right now, I can't imagine doing 65 of the same card! Some big baby shower, huh? Nevertheless, lovely project and I am sure they will be very happy with the end result!

I'm with Rufus...Who knows that many people to invite to a baby shower? I hope that you get one to keep and will be going to the shower yourself to join in the celebrations. Huge task and you've done a beautiful job of creating each one. I was going to send you a digi of a bucket...(just joking) *Hugs*
