That was such a long process! I had ordered a few samples from different places and none were good enough. I spend hours online searching for different companies who make them. I am so pleased with how they turned out and the company I ordered them from was great and shipped them super-fast. I got them from www.tinyprints.com and I would highly recommend them.
Before I started the search for the announcement I was waiting on Addi's foot to get turned into a butterfly. There is a BLM who does them and it said it was a 2-3 week wait. A month and a half later I was tired of waiting. Thank you Alex and Photoshop for getting that done!
I also wanted a way to sign these and all our future cards with something to include Addison. After thinking about it a lot I stumbled upon a BLM who made her daughter's butterfly prints into a stamp. She was kind enough to share the info with me and I love the stamp! Now Addison can be on all our cards with us and the people who know what it is will always know too :)The stamp website was www.rubberstamps.net I am going to have a larger one made because I think the one I ordered is too small, but I still love it.
I also wanted her to be on our return address stickers so I ordered those from 123print.com. All the places I ordered from were fast and reasonable pricing. When I find a website I like I always feel the need to share it.
I spent last Saturday on and off all day working on them. Usually I am quick with cards, but these took a lot out of me and I could only do a few at a time. I think all in all it was very therapeutic and I am so glad to have been able to do these for Addison.
Thanks to everyone who sent me messages about the announcements and to everyone who has Addi on their fridge!
