Little cowboy

Yay! I finished these baby shower invitations for my brother and my sister-in-law a week ago, but I waited to write this post until after my mom mailed them out.

The shower theme is little cowboys, and this cute horse from Mama Elephant was the only stamp I had that would work! I had thought the theme might be camping/outdoorsy/woodsy. I have tons of stamps for that. :) But I still love how the invitations came out. The horse ended up being perfect.

This awesome die from My Favorite Things opens up to reveal a secret. In the case of this project, it reveals the baby's name. My nephew will be called Declan Chase.

The actual inside of the invitations had a little poem at the top:

One small request that won’t be too hard
Please bring a book instead of a card
Whether Cat in the Hat or Winnie the Pooh
You can sign the book with a note from you

And the bottom part had the typical details of where and when and also this initial sentiment:

Janelle and Danny are having a little cowboy!
Help us celebrate

I made 30 invitations. Whew! That is a record for me. :)


Thanks for looking, and have an awesome day! :)
