Time to Celebrate with our 3rd Annual Block Party

Hi everyone, yeah!!! we are celebrating our 3rd year at 613 Avenue Create with our Annual Block Party. The Optional Theme for challenge #158 is Happy Birthday or Anniversary. I've made a birthday card, but I've added the birthday sentiment to the inside as I really liked this "Hello Friend" sentiment from my new Tim Holtz set of stamps my friend Jane gave me for my birthday. Thanks so much, Jane. Love them.
Our sponsors for the challenge are - Sami Stamps  and Bugaboo Stamps
I've been really short on time lately due to wedding preparations and we are also going to have a short holiday just driving interstate and staying with an old friend for a week. Then back home with just 3 weeks left before the wedding. So crafting has been unfortunately the last thing on my mind. I only got my image late afternoon yesterday and then we were out from 6 p.m. till midnight catching up with another old friend for dinner and then a walk through town to find somewhere for coffee. She came in on the bus, so we drove her home and had a tour around her now well established garden. Really beautiful.

  1. Beautiful card and a very elegant image. Funny I just finished a card that was similar in the fact I had paper pieced a lovely image of a lady and the background is made up of different papers. Exciting times with the wedding.
