It's Party Time

Good morning and happy Friday, it's Sue here with my second Tea Party piece, and this time it's a card that I made for my Dad's recent 80th birthday. My Dad is like all of us, his body may be getting a bit older, but in his head he's still 21 -  maybe 25 now, so I know he'll appreciate a wacky card.

We were all meant to be in Tenerife to celebrate his birthday, but there's always next year. There are more pictures on my blog so I'd love to see you over there. Thanks very much for looking, and take care xx

A birthday party with Alice

Hello it's Jane back again with my 2nd "Tea/birthday party" inspiration card for our May challenge. Inspired by all the front garden tea parties we enjoyed for the 75th VE day celebrations on Friday  I have Alice in Wonderland all dressed up in her finery ready to invite your to her party.
She has presents galore too, lucky girl. If you would like to pop over to my blog here you can join the fun, sing her happy birthday and see how this all came together. 
Bye for now,
Jane x

Hello crafters, this is Craftyfield hosting today's post.

Special celebrations to mark the 75th Anniversary of the end of the World War 2 were curtailed due to the lockdown.
Instead of (non-existant) photos, I will give you an Artist's impression... you know like drawings
 produced for future buildings, more poetic than accurate!

Come by my blog to read up on the details.

Have a great week!

Let's Meet For Tea

Miriam with you again today.

I hope you enjoyed the launch of my Challenge a few days ago.  I think that it's so important to have something to look forward to at the moment.  As yet, I am not sure when it will be, but, when it is safe to do so I cannot wait to see my friends, hug them and have a proper catch up over a cup of tea (or more likely gin to be honest!).

That's what inspired me to choose this theme.

Here is my second project for the Challenge.

Pop over to my blog to see more about this project.

And if you want to see more with these wonderful Alice papers you can see a mini album that I made for Country View Crafts here and the finished project here.

I hope you join in with this challenge - don't forget, you will be in the hat to win a voucher to spend in the shop if you link a project for the challenge.

Stay Safe

May 2020 - Tea Party

Welcome to our May Challenge
Our theme this month is Tea Party , chosen by the lovely Miriam. We love you taking part in our challenges so this month, don't forget Tea Party and this can be any Celebration tea party as in Birthday, Anniversary etc and must be included in your projects to be in with a chance to win a £20 Gift Voucher.

Happy May to you all.
Welcome to the May challenge.
Today is my turn to choose the theme for the Country View Crafts Challenge.

I have chosen 'Tea Party'.  

With the global pandemic on-going many of us are self-isolating or social distancing.  It's a hard time for most of us and we all miss family and friends.  I wanted the Challenge theme to be something to look forward to, something to celebrate and I thought the idea of a tea party of celebration party would be perfect.

Here is my first project for the challenge:

I've used the fabulous papers from the Stamperia Alice collection.  I simply adore these papers and can't get enough of them!

So much so, I made a mini album for Country View Crafts that you can see here and the finished album here.  You can see more details on my blog.

Thanks for joining me today.  I look forward to your tea party themes projects this month.

Stay safe
