    After contemplating what I should do (DIY or Buy) with my invitations, I finally went with DIY. It was SOOOO time consuming, and I had little hiccups here and there, but after looking at my invites last night, I like them. I kept them pretty simple.

    Cards: Michaels 9.99/pack of 25
    Paper Cardstock: Hobby Lobby 4 for $1
    Stamp: Hobby Lobby 8.99
    Stamp Ink: Tangerine & Rouge 4.99 ea
    Response cards: Michaels 9.99/pack of 50. I had a hard time finding a large quantity of blank envelopes, so i just bought box of blank thank you cards w/ envelopes, and will use the thank you cards for something else.

    I alternated colors on the flowers depending on what color the inside of the card was. My FMIL has a little machine that cuts letters out, so she did that and then glued them to the outside of each little square for the cover.

      Oh great job! They turned out fabulous and isn't it a great feeling to have done them DIY, even with the hiccups? :-)
