My son Dan asked me to do his wedding invites , so his fiance and I sat down and talked about what she wanted them to look like and this is the end result . She is very pleased with how they turned out . I had 3 stamping friends and a TOPS pal help me put them together . Many hours were spent on them , we had to do 100 of them . The info inside was done on the computer , then printed on vellum. The top one has the image stamped a little off from where I wanted it , but that happens when you have help , which was much appreciated .

Of all the invitations to weddings that I've received in the last several years that were obviously hand made, this has to be the very best. Of course I may be predjudiced because my daughter made them and my future Granddaughter-in-law helped design them and the grandson I helped raise has finally found someone to love and to love him. (Also purple is my favorite color and purple & yellow were my late Mother's favorite colors.) I really love the details on these and how the inside looks, also. Very creative and thanks to those who helped! .....and now for the wedding!
