The Invitations (Part Three)

This girl's internal dilemmas continued. Having solved the tag issue thanks to Marie (for the suggestion) and her darling boy (for purchasing it), her thoughts turned once again to the invitations. She was so pleased with the support that she had received and realised that invitations were not a competition. She knew that, but she also loved beautiful things, in fact, she only wanted things for her wedding that were beautiful.

Still, it was more important that their best people came to the wedding, not whether the invitations were perfect. Besides Alex had done a fantastic job and as long as they had the correct information on and reached the correct people, their purpose would be fulfilled.

And accompanying the invitations and the RSVP cards (don't ask, yet) would be this map:

Well, a finished version of this map. It will have place names and our names and the date and another reference to the wedsite/website. She just hoped people would see it for the handmade charm with which she intended it, not just wished she had photocopied part of a road map...

Oh, and for those of you that asked, this is the peacock image:-

And it's stamp brother which matches it will be used to 'seal' the backs of the envelopes and to create the thank you cards.

Oh, and this may be my last post for a week or so. Having a minor operation tomorrow (diagnostic) but have been told to take two weeks off work. Hoping to be at least up and organising and maybe even blogging by next week, but we shall see...

I love the map, very cool! And the peacock design is lovely.
Best of luck with the op, hope it goes smoothly and you don't feel too grotty after.

Hope the operation goes well.

I always find hand-drawn maps utterly charming.

Your map is definitely charming; I love the little champagne glasses.

I hope the operation goes well! Make sure M takes you lots of tea and snacks - I'm sure it'll make recovery faster - and tries not to get too worked up during the Liverpool match on Saturday, as you need your rest and too much yelling will not help (though they really need to win this one; and if Man U manage to lose again, I will be happy dancing for sure). ;)

Good luck from me as well.
