Is this message clear? Trying to be funny and sassy without being rude or too weird. :) Any wording suggestions welcome. Thanks!

I love it but I hope you do too! No matter the critique always make sure to go with your gut and stay true to yourself :) One other edit from me - the type on the bottom feels like it's filling in a bit, I would probably bring it up to medium weight - or at least book.

I like the humor, but the layout at the bottom seems like it could use a little canoodling. What if there are no red boxes and the text in the boxes is more streamlined, and in italics, more of an editorial look to go with the quote?

Hi Annie, I actually like the idea of just using type. But I'm not sure about the line of squeezing it out of there LOL - I just picture this invitation coming my my 86 year old mom and her eyes rolling when she reads it. Some might laugh but keep in mind who it could go to. IMO. Maybe something more like Wait - How did this happen? Maybe not that but something more innocent?? Also since the mom-to-be is not mailing them out or hosting I wouldn't use "First Person" grammar like you used "I". Hope this helps. Just my take on it.

I think this is a super cute idea and I do like the concept of only using type. I do think the message is a little awkward in this case but I love the use of humor. One idea I had for you is for more of a sprinkle or second baby card - the "you squeesze a baby out of there" could be followed by a kids name and age like " - michah, age 4" so it could be more of a funny quote from the soon-to-be big sibling and could easily be customized for the customer.
