2008 Halloween Invitations!

Well I just got done designing the invitations for our 2008 halloween party. These were so much fun and I am so happy with how they turned out. I bought some manila envelopes and printed the "X-Ray Film Do Not Fold" and addresses onto them. Then I created a fake x-ray which I printed on transparency film. The x-ray points to a crack on the skull and states "death caused by blow to the head with a tire iron for not attending our halloween party". Ha ha! I think that I have watched one too many 'Bones' episodes :) Then behind the x-ray is a medical record form which I played on words between it being a medical form and the information for attending the party. The 'medical form' reads:

Date Of Admittance: (Date of party)
Cause Of Death: Death caused by blow to head with a tire iron

Please answer the following questions to the best of your ability:
Please arrive by: 5pm | 8pm | 11pm (8pm circled)
Please come in your: lingerie | costume | birthday suit (costume circled)
Don’t forget to bring: libations | pumpkins | teddy bear (libations circled)

Name of hosts: (our names)
Party Address: (our address)
In case of emergency (or to RSVP), please notify: (my email and cell number)

I realize that by attending this party I am responsible for any
and all fun I will incur and/or drunkenness that may ensue.
I understand that I am to come in costume or I will be liable for
any consequences or ridicule that may occur.
