Cats in lurve.

One of my lovely friends is getting married in August and she asked me to design her invitations. Me! This was very exciting, and also scary, because of the Pressure. I knew that if I gave her something half-arsed, she'd be totally lovely about it but I'd feel like poo everytime I looked at it because I'd know it wasn't my best. So, pressure!

Anyway, we decided to incorporate her cats in some way, but attempting to fall on the side of cute and quirky instead of cheesy and slightly creepy. So after much playing around with Photoshop and various images, and then a few slightly more productive hours with a sketchpad, I came up with this:

And I actually kind of like it. :) They even look vaguely like her cats, although I'm not sure how Ferdie and Mikko would feel about being represented in this way, considering they're both boys and almost definitely heterosexual. 

Next up, planning the hen do. Huzzah.
