Circus Invitations

I just wanted to share with you these adorable shower invitations I found on Etsy for my daughter's baby shower.  Her best friend and my youngest daughter are hosting the shower, but my contribution was to send out the invitations.  I found these on Etsy.  They were designed by Jilly Bear Designs.  The theme of the nursery is circus so I wanted to stay with the same idea.

 The monkey and the banner are all die cuts layered beautifully.  I gave Sammie, the creator of these beauties, the wording and she printed them for me so I didn't have to mess with that.  The order included the coordinating thank you cards as well.
 I saved the image to my computer and had the postal service make coordinating postage stamps.
 Also included in the package from Jilly Bear Designs were these darling hang tags the girls can use for party favors or gifts.  The whole package of 18 custom invitations and thank you notes plus tags only came to $81.50.  I think for everything I purchased which was all custom and including printing, this was a great deal and my oldest daughter loves them.  So if you are looking for invitations, you might keep Jilly Bear Designs in mind.  You will find her on Etsy.  Thanks for visiting.

Totally cute and love the choice of your invitations! I am sure the Baby Shower will be a success.

P.S: For your Canadian readers the Canadian Postal Service will also create personalized stamps for you as well and have been doing so for some time now. (Had them done up for my daughter's wedding a number of years ago.)
