...Thanksgiving Invitations...

These pretty Thanksgiving invitations by FINA Art & Paper are available for download through their shop and feature the prettiest combination of clean sans serif type, soft muted fall colors and simple Thanksgiving-inspired illustrations. I love the idea of kicking off the holiday season by sending a pretty invitation to ask your loved ones to join you in giving thanks and these are just perfect.

Here's to hoping that you and yours are able to spend some quality time together over the holidays, always giving thanks for the blessings that you have. Happy Thanksgiving!

...Envelope Calligraphy....

Just stopping in to share a few shots of a recent order that I did for a client that wanted chocolate brown ink to liven up her white invitation envelopes.

It's never too early to contact me about your upcoming wedding & the calligraphy for your invitation envelopes!

...Soft Pink & Gray Invitations...

Planning a late winter/early spring wedding? You cannot go wrong using soft colors paired with a subtle gray. I love the dual purpose this "belly band" serves. It holds the invitation suite together while delivering a special message to invited guests.

The use of gray envelopes for both the invitation envelope and the response card complete the look of this adorable invitation suite.

...Christmas/Holiday Card Addressing with Calligraphy...

It's pretty clear that Winter is right around the corner. You know what that means, it's time to start thinking about your holiday greeting cards! With as much chaos as the holidays bring, allow me to address all of your holiday card envelopes {with calligraphy!} for you! Send your envelopes to me, as well as your address list, 2-3 weeks prior to when you would like to mail them out and I'll get them back to you to stamp with postage and mail out!
It takes enough energy to send out holiday cards every year, so allow me to complete the most time-consuming task. Not only will your holiday cards be beautiful, but your envelopes will be too! I'll even offer a special 10% off discount on my pricing to the first three customers to reserve their spot on my calendar for completion! E-mail me at pennedandpretty {at} gmail {dot} com to reserve a spot for your envelopes to be addressed {All orders must be received by December 20th}.

The holidays will be here before you know it, so reserve your spot on my calendar today and your holiday card envelopes will be addressed for you and ready to send, allowing you more time to enjoy the holidays!

p.s. I thought that I would share some of my favorite holiday cards, spotted at minted to get you in the holiday spirit! Links to minted designers can be found below.
