Sweet B-day invitations

I have not posted any new LO's lately, because I had been working on a special project. A co-worker friend of mine approached me last week and asked me if I could make some invitations for her sisters surprise 30th Birthday party. She said she would pay me for my supplies and my time. Of course I said "YES!" A very exciting opportunity indeed. Her only request was that the colors used on the invitations be teal & brown. She loves this color combo at the moment. Other than that I had total creative freedom. I have been working on them here and there over the last week, in between all my other normal Mom/Me/Girlfriend stuff. Hahaha! I finally finished them last night. I was so happy that they were completed and that I could finally share them. I left them on her desk this morning. All wrapped up in a bow (presentation is everything!) I couldn't wait for her to see them:

She was thrilled and so was I. Here they all are, the same, but different:

My first satisfied customer. Now I am off to my next project or to finish off one that I had put aside for the time being. I did have a 'paying' customer you know. How cool, right?? :-)
