Save the Date for the Ducklings

I have finally sent out our Save the Dates and now that I’m sure everyone has received them, I can finally share them with the hive. We’ve seriously taken our sweet time getting these guys out due to delays from school, life, and just general procrastination. But, oh well, they are out and I’ve finally uploaded the pictures to share!

Without further ado, here are the Duckling save the dates!


The first peek


Pull the save the date out




One more envelope!


And ta-da!



Here is a picture of how my FMIL displayed her save the date. Isn’t that sweet?

Please let me know if you have any questions. I will try to put together a post with pictures of how we put them together, as well as what supplies were used, if you are interested. Can you already tell where my Cricut and Cuttlebug came in handy?

    @markyk: It’s not a magnet but I seriously considered putting magnets on the main back and on the end of the string. Mr. D thought that would be a little overboard and add too many steps. :)

    The issue of delivering an excellent review upon specific application product is certainly interesting these days. Given the expanding quantity of pc computer software in the marketplace and more and much more complex features carried out with this certain applications the matter goes past personal expertise from a person and good literature experience. IT is now a job for experts who are only able to conduct the task appropriately.
