Have spent the day in the kitchen, preparing for Skye’s 21st party that is on tomorrow night. (Fri 5th) I am knackered! Skye was a big help … and we managed to do all that I had on my list! 4 meals, 1 dessert, 2 slices, 2 dips, corn pancakes, 72 cupcakes!!!!! Tomorrow I still have to do a couple of dips, and ice & decorate the 72 cupcakes. I am making a tower of cupcakes for her Birthday cake. I have already pre-cooked mini burgers, hot dogs & fries, too! It is to be a Country Western Square Dance party … should be lotsa fun! I thought I would pop by quickly and share Skye’s birthday card.
I had lotsa fun with this one. It was CASED from a Pinterest Card … but I did add some little extras to the original design. All the letters and numbers were created on my computer using Publisher. I printed them on the DSP and fussy cut them all out … added some faux stitching with a black marker & sponged around the edges with ink. The flowers are from the Vanilla Flower Trim (SU!) and I sponged some Calypso Coral ink onto the edges to colour them. Lots of Iridescent Ice embossing on the letters & numbers to add some pretty sparkle. Yes … it did take some time … but well worth it for a special birthday for a special girl!
And … here is a photo of our baby girl … with her new fiance, Mitch at her birthday dinner last night! (Wed 3rd) We are so proud of her and feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family. Well … I am a tad tired … so might have an early night. It is going to be a busy day & a late night tomorrow!
