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!
