One, four and six

yes I can count!  but those are the ages of the children whose birthday party we are off to on Sunday afternoon.

Hello blogworld

My regular followers may remember a year ago a friend of mine having her 3rd child - two girls already and baby was a boy - well this Sunday we are off to their combined birthday party.  So it's a 1st birthday, 4th birthday and 6th birthday.

And that's the second birthday party we are going to on Sunday!  I've also a card for a 5 year old girl to make!

Aren't we the social butterflies - two parties in one day!!

I won't be showing the 4th or 6th birthday cards as I've run out of time to make so many cards.  So those will be from my old makes and I may have shown them (or may not I can't remember).  The only ones you are getting to see are the 1st - today - the 5th next week, probably.

Here we are with the 1st:

Front and arty shot combined - what do you think of the accessory? I is trying to be posh!

Close up of image:

I used:

Lili of the Valley - Patchwork Bunch of Balloons
coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers

Memory Box - Simple Banner
Go-Kreate - tag

First Edition - Up, Up and Away

Anything else?
Craftwork Cards - Kraft card

So I'm happier with this one and I'm very pleased with the colouring!  

A challenge, or two:

I love Promarkers - Challenge #133: Bunting

Totally Gorjuss: Challenge 147- A Sketch

My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges: Challenge #73 - Anything Goes
