There did used to be one downside... children's parties.
Those of you who have children will know what I mean. Those who don't - NEVER volunteer to run one in my opinion!
But we are jsut about beyond that now and instead Carys and I took the train
and goofed around. Shopped a little in Oxford Street and then went to see
(note Carys is already in a different top). Sister Act was so, so fab with the campest of endings.
It finished jsut after 10 and it was sooooo hot on the way home as well as a slightly late night for a school night. But Carys had a trip to the Globe the next day so all fine.
Thanks for all the birthday greetings and cards. I'm hoping to have some time to photograph them tomorrow to show what creative friends I have! In the meantime it is July already (eek) which means it is Get Funky Challenge Day. The theme is
Something Newwhich is apposite as I have been playing with something new - a new Funky Hand CD called Colour Me Happy which will be launched ever so soon and trust me - you will love it! I went for a New Home card
The sofa is based on a design from a Nikki Sivils paper which I paper pieced together and added the cushion. Everything has a black sharpie border to give extra definition to all that pattern and I also added a little white card to break the patterns a little.
Other things used - Paperartsy frame die for the card base; Nestabilities square frames; Papertrey scallop die and Adornit letter stickers.
