welcome to in a card's blog...

i know that "cute" is not a word typically used to describe good design, but in my world, it is. if it's your first reaction to say, "aww... how cute!" then it must be just that! "C-U-T-E." and i'm talking about so incredibly, ridiculously cute that the most masculine of men will even say those three words without thinking twice about it.

and so that is what i hope to share with you on my blog...

a combination of really unique ideas, simple thoughts that come randomly into my mind, along with "cute" designs that i've designed or come across.

ladybug, ladybug, come out and play

the internet and online world is extremely big, yet sometimes can feel so small all at the same time.

dana found me on google while searching for ladybug invitations for her daughter's 1st birthday & baby naming party. she emailed me, we spoke on the phone and we soon discover that we live only several blocks away from one another. how fortuitous is that, considering i had just moved into my new place?

we immediately started exchanging emails and phone conversations. dana told me she wanted to do a classy, yet playful, ladybug invitation for her daughter, sasha's 1st birthday, in december and so, i translated her words into this invitation design...

each invitation is embellished with a playful red and black polka dot ribbon, along with 3 cute tiny little wooden painted ladybugs.  i find it almost impossible to look at this invitation without squealing in delight.

normally, ladybugs are related to garden parties for the spring or summer months, so we decided to keep any trace of green grass or gingham print tablecloth as far away as possible.  Instead use the colors of a ladybug, red, black and white, to help set the theme and tone of the party.

dana ask that i also do signs and goodie bag labels for the party, so be sure to come back later in december to see how the whole set turns out.
