worth the wait

One of the happiest baby shower announcement's I have EVER done!!

My dear friends Chris & Christy have been trying to adopt and were chosen by a sweet birth mother.
Their little boy is due July 1st!

We are throwing Christy a shower soon and we are just so excited for her to meet her little boy.

Christy has a classic style, so I wanted the announcement to match her personality.

Prior to being chosen to adopt she had mentioned in a blog post that all of her pain would
someday be "worth the wait", so I wanted to incorporate that sweet saying into the card.
Chris & Christy have been through so much to get to this point!

Size: 5 x 5
Paper: recycled



We can't wait to meet you baby Mason!

Paper Samples

I'm working on a card for another person from out-of-state.
I was e-mailing her today and trying to describe the paper options.
I decided it would be good to put up some paper samples!
I apologize, but I don't know of a better way to do this.
I've taken pictures (really bad ones) of cards printed on the three types of paper I prefer.

You should be able to click on the pictures below to enlarge them and get a better idea of what the three different papers look like.

FYI - all of these paper types are the same price.

• fabric like texture •

Hope this helps people choose the card that is perfect for them!
