This past weekend was Antioch Adoption's Silent & Live Auction, their annual fall fundraiser. I contributed to a party planning package, donated up to 30 invitations with coordinating thank-you cards. This was combined with a donation from Trophy Cupcakes and a catering service. These are the sample invitations/thank-you sets I made to display. I tried to keep these pretty simple for mass production.

This first set was a sample bridal party. I made up all of the names and used Antioch's contact information for both invitations. I printed the wording from my computer and used an old Stampin' Up set, Heartfelt Thanks. The invitations has an "R" charm dangling from the bow that was difficult to photograph on this rainy Monday. The gorgeous paper is Wisteria Dahlia & Stone Wall by Basic Grey.

I wanted to give guests other ideas for dinner parties (other than the usual birthday, bridal, baby shower), and what was more appropriate at this time of year than a Thanksgiving dinner part? I printed the invitation and thank-you on off-white vellum. I have no names for the paper; I will try to get those. I picked them up at my local Ben Franklin I believe they had no name on either one. The bulk ribbon was also from BF. Both include some small gold metal stickers by Mark Richards. I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge for my thank-you card.

If you haven't signed up yet, this is the last day to sign up for the free Jessica Sprague "Holidays in Hand" class. It's her last freebie of the year!

Happy creating!
