Lets Party

 Hi.. How are you all?

The rain has stopped for awhile though I can see it isn't done with us yet. I've had my second vaccination and thankfully I didn't have the same bad reaction to it as I did the first one. All I need now is a relaxing beach holiday ... If only!

I've made quite a few cards lately using up bits and pieces which I'll share with you over the next week or so but today's card is for my great nephew Ross, who will be 19 this week. Where the heck did all those years go?? Once he got into his late teens he didn't want to come up to Liverpool and hang out with his grandparents so much and then came the pandemic so I haven't seen him in a long while.

Anyway, here's what I came up with


I used some digital files here... The background paper is a digital that I then stenciled on and the drinks are all digitals fussy cut


I did add some dimensional gloss to the glasses and the fruit but I'm not sure it shows up here. After stamping and embossing the birthday sentiment I added a die cut and used the little popped out dots from it to decorate the rest of the card


I hope he likes it and at knows that we love him and miss him.

Have yourselves a wonderful Sunday... Be safe

~ Ros ~

I'd love any one of those 'froo-froo' drinks, Ros! But I'm afraid if I drank more than one, the party would be over for me!
Well done, Auntie Ros! I'm certain he loves and misses you, too - and will love that you've remembered him on his birthday with this darling card.

Those are some beautiful digis and perfectly fussy cut. Really a beautiful card which I know your great nephew will appreciate. He'll come around eventually. He's at that unsettled age.

That card is fantastic, I'm sure he absolutely loved it! And as for vacations... I hear Portugal is opening up, so maybe worth considering?
