Dad's 50th Birthday Invitations

I've done it again, I've volunteered to make invitations for another birthday party this year in our family.  It is yet another milestone that will be a great celebration.  On August 19th, my dad will turn 50 years young.  He's such a special person to me and one of my best friends.  He is wanting to have a kick back, BBQ to celebrate with his closest friends.  I started last night working on invitations because these have more detail involved then most invitations do.  This idea caught my attention while I was perusing google images, as soon as I left work, I went right home and started creating.  Yes, it did take me 3 attempts and many visits with my husband for his opinion.  Finally success - This one's going in my book for sure!

The card in the pocket pulls out and has all the party info on it.  I'll be getting different ribbon, maybe a blue or green checkard... the stamp on the top is a tractor that is encircled with the words Hey Y'all.  I've added stitching all the way around the apron (with a pen, I know cheating).  There is a spatula and a grilling fork attached to the pull out so it looks like there are BBQ tools in the pocket of the apron.  I will be working on the writing on the front, maybe I'll throw a gel pen in my cricut and let it take care of that part of the creativity for the rest of the invites!
