You're Invited to Celebrate The Season 26

Hi Girlfriends! First, I would like to share with all of you my Cyber Girlfriend Julie's excitement. Julie, at Julie's Open Window is celebrating going over the 100th Follower mark! :) CONGRATS Julie! She has something special to share with one lucky winner! Be sure to stop by her blog to see ALL of her amazing creations! :)

My sister's dear friend Sue, is hosting this year's Christmas party for 12 of her childhood friends. She is in her late 50's early 60's & has a dozen friends dating back to the FIRST grade! I am honored that Sue asked ME to make the invitations for such a special event! :) Sue just asked that the invitations be "rich" looking, not the traditional Christmas greens & reds. I was soooo excited to find K&Company's NEW Christmas Cheer Specialty Paper Pad that is FULL of all "rich" colors: Forest Green, Burgandy, Navy, Gold & Dark Red! :) For this SPECIAL invitation layout, I was inspired by all the amazing samples at 2Sketches4You to incorporate Kazan's Sketch 33. This week's Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #44, You're Invited, the girls are making invitations & they invited papercrafters to join along with them in the challenge! I would love to know if you would like to receive an invitation like the one I created? Be Sweet!

Great idea! This invite is very elegant! Your friend is so lucky to have you custom design a card for her! In "the big city" this service would cost hundreds of dollars!
