Morning all. We are up to P for Party over at The Alphabet Challenge. Here in the UK we are in Lockdown once again so this is the nearest you are going to get to a party in the next month. If you needed an excuse to join in then that's got you covered. They can't fine you for joining a virtual party. During the first lockdown we had a virtual cheese and wine party on a crafty Facebook group I'm on. I baked a camembert and drank quite a bit of white wine. Well, you have to show willing don't you.
My party card started with a fun image from Bugaboo. I chose the spotty backing paper and coloured my image to match. Then I sat and fussy cut the whole thing out 'cause my little piggy bled out the lines and there was no way I was starting again. I die cut lots of white balloons to add to my card blank for a tone on tone effect before sticking the rest of it together. I'd had to cut off the 'happy' part of the stamp so I added 'wishes' instead. You can't see it but I covered the balloons and presents with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen. I also added it to the chocolate chip ice cream. Mmm, ice cream. Do you think that is an acceptable choice for a breakfast this morning? I'm tempted.
Ok, time for you all to get your party on. Pop over to the blog and see the awesome inspiration and please join in the fun.
Thanks for reading.

Adorable card, we are close to another lockdown here in Ontario Canada, but doesn't make any difference for me as I still have to go to work, as I work in the essential service industry. Have a great dayReplyDelete
