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:
