Ruby wedding invitations

Good morning everyone, hope you are all enjoying your Saturday morning, the weather is lovely here in Devon bit chilly but pleasant. I can't believe I am actually able to take 5 minutes to post this as I am looking after my sisters 3 girls this morning. The two older ones have taken themselves off to play Mario Kart on the Wii and the little one has been sat very quietly watching cbeebies for ages. I wonder how much longer this quiet will go on?

My Mum and Dad have been married 40 years on 14th November and have decided they would like to celebrate so asked if I could make them some invitations. They both love birds and Mum is into simple looking cards so I came up with this for them.

The birds are papermania Christmas embossing folder, matted and layered on red card, added the hearts and ribbon then Mum said she would like them to have 40 on them so I cut 1/2" ones on the cricut expression and stuck to the bottom corner. Made 25 of these in total, they are not having a big party just a lunch on the actual day which happens to fall on a Sunday this year so is perfect. Having everyone back to mine after for drinks and cake which will nice gonna have to get organised for that arghh!!!

Thanks for looking enjoy the rest of your Saturday. I have some more to share with you as soon as I can get some decent pictures in the daylight, hope the girls all stay quiet so I can do it today!!
