Invites out

We sent our wedding invites out this week. It was quite an operation, and I am glad that the job is done. We have been dithering about how to keep them cheap and personal, and with a handcrafted feel, but without making too much work for ourselves. In the end we decided to draw each other and print this on the front of the card with the date. There is also a green paper insert that is tied into the invite with some jazzy wool.

I'm pretty pleased with them. The picture of me actually looks like me, I think, but the the one of B is a very poor representation, but we thought people would get the idea. If you want a laugh, have a look at some of our other efforts below. As you can see, I am a very poor drawer, where as B is much more accomplished. I do have to say that one of those that I drew was a joke, but perhaps it is hard to work out which one!

Anyway, they're all in the post now, bar one which I am still waiting on an address for, and so I guess we're gonna do this!
