Well, I have been lurking in this thread since we got engaged, and now I finally have something to post!

We decided to do postcards for out save the date cards.  My fiance drew this picture of the two of us, (by looking at a photo) then we scanned it, added the names and date, and order photo prints from Wal-mart.  Then, used spray glue to attache the prints to posterboard, cut 'um and hand wrote our little message on the back.  The 65 postcards cost us less than $10 (not including the postcard stamps though!  We better send out actual invites before the price of stamps goes up again!)



Thanks to everyone for all the wedding inspirations!

Congratulations!  What a great idea...it's thrifty, which is always a bonus...and it's something that people won't just toss out after they write in on the calendar!  Great job. Smiley

My friends I am addicted to "crackster".  I think they might be right.
I am interested in personal swaps, just send me a pm!

I love my life, my hubby, my sons, and my 2 crazy dogs!  Isn't life grand?
