A 'Round the Clock Bridal Shower Invite

One of 4 poems available on the link posted below.
I hand-lettered it for the invitation.

All lined up for envelopes

Machine zig zag sewn, back of invite detail shown.
The sewing machine saves so much time for me, here I got 5 layers attached with one zip on the machine.

My darling friend, Megan, is getting married in a couple weeks.  When my little Junebug saw her invitation to her wedding, she turned to me and matter-of-factly stated, "That's the right guy for her Mom."  I don't know how June knows that, but she said it with an undoubtable confidence in her voice.  I actually think she's right.

Some mutual friends in the neighborhood are throwing her a shower and asked if I could help out.  The theme is "A 'Round the Clock" in which guests bring a gift that coordinates with the hour of the day that the hostess has assigned them on the invitation.  So in the invite pictured above, the clock is set for 6 p.m..  Whoever receives this invite could possibly bring something that is to be used in the kitchen at dinnertime.  My friend sent me a link HERE for ideas to help me create these invitations.  I thought there were darling poems and ideas available and wanted to share them with you.
