A couple of weeks ago my Mom asked me to make birthday invitations for my Grandma's upcoming 90th birthday. I said sure. What a mistake. I hated every second of making these cards. I hated the colour choices that my Grandma gave me to work with. It was Pink, Blue and Lavender. I opted to skip the blue because it just didn't go.
Then I showed my Grandma a mock up of the card from one I had done earlier that was similar on my Blog. She then snooped around a bit and found a card she liked better. One that was far more complicated to make. I opted to ignore her because I just didn't have the time to make them. So I went for the simpler design. What I got was a big old "I thought you were making the other ones".
I was also supposed to get some help making them from my little sister. Never happened. She went to the East Coast for a wedding and an In Law visit, so I had no help. Well unless you count my husband. He tried. He helped a little, but trying to show him how to use the SU scallop punch was a lot more difficult then you think it would be for an engineer.
None the less, the invites are done.
