etegami invitation cards
For the invitation card challenge, I made the etegami posted here, and then tested it on the members of my Etegami Fun Club group on Facebook. The image itself passed muster, but many of the responders told me they understood "hen party" to mean a bachelorette party, which made the phrase "baby chicks are welcome" seem out of place. I checked the dictionary definition of hen party and it says "a social gathering restricted to women," but bachelorette party seems to be the most commonly listed interpretation. I guess common usage has changed over the generations. What do you think?
UPDATE: Guess what? This card won the Invitation Card Challenge I submitted it to. Yaaaaay!

Adorable! Very clever.ReplyDelete
This is very sweet! Here in the UK, Hen Party is a social event that a bride has with her female friends before she gets married - seemingly generally involving copious amounts of alcohol & lewd behaviour. So yes, baby chicks would be out of place, I guess.ReplyDelete
I like your version of a Hen Party much better for sure!
I don't believe I'll ever be invited to a Hen Party. So, thanks for letting me see an invitation. Great coloring!ReplyDelete
LOL. Maybe not, but I bet you could design a great Hen Party invitation!Delete

Love the card... Congratulations!ReplyDelete
I'm in Canada, of French origins, and for me a hen party is a group of women getting together to chat and socialize. So for me it's perfect!!
Hooray! Finally someone who understand the term the same way that I do! Thank you Marie, for your encouraging comment. :)Delete
