Busy Few Days.......

I've had a lovely few days.  On Thursday I went to a craft fair at Shepton Mallet with a friend.  (A photo of my new goodies at the end of my post.)  On Friday I was invited to an 80th Birthday Tea Party, which was a lovely event. Yesterday I was invited to 70th Birthday 10 hour craft day.  A crafty friend decided she didn't want a party, so organised an all day craft day in a village hall for all her crafty friends.  Ten hours of crafting, eating, chatting and laughing..... what a great way to spend a Saturday!   The biggest laugh was when an elderly gentleman, wearing a raincoat, appeared in the hall.  He asked if the building we were in was the church, as he was looking for someone.  A few of the girls thought a stripper had arrived and started humming the stripper tune!  Needless to say, it was just an elderly gentleman looking for the church!

This is the card I made to send to the couple who organised the afternoon Tea Party.
The embossing folder is one of the Cuttlebug 'Once Upon A Princess' folders.  It's one of a set of four folders and fortunately the craft shop I bought it in used to split all the packs and sell the embossing folders separately.  The cupcake is a Stampin' Up punch, with the icing embossed with a Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder and raised up with foam pads.  I used MB Stitched Circles and Rectangles for matting and layering. 

I am joining in the following challenges:


Here is a photo of my new crafty goodies.

  3. Really lovely card, love the EF and the cute little cupcake.
    What a great idea for a 70th Birthday party, in a couple of years time I may do the same, only trouble is not many crafters round here.

    1. I'm fortunate enough to live about half an hour from where we have a monthly craft day in a school hall. Everyone does their own thing, cardmaking, scrapbooking, journaling etc. There's usually a scrapbooking workshop for anyone who wants to join in too. You could always start up a local craft group, Kath. 😊 xx
