Down the Rabbit Hole!

Hello lovelies, how are you? I am a little tired today after a super duper busy but fun weekend! i held two Mad Hatter's Cards and Tea Party Classes over Saturday and Sunday. What a crazy but magical weekend.

I love to do parties...any occasion, any theme...and once I decided I wanted to hold an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party, well things just raced ahead with the planning and a lot of enthusiasm. This went on for a few months mind you. Good parties take time. Lol!

Then of course the nasty COVID hit town and everything was postponed....for a few months at least anyway. We are fortunate here in South Australia at the moment as we have very few cases and have only limited restrictions. So, we were able to finally have our long awaited little tea party at The Maples!

The craft room was set up nice and organised, ready for my crafty peeps to arrive. It looks cold and dark outside, that's because its very early in the morning - it was actually a lovely spring day in the end!

Once I found that crazy White Rabbit, things went along quite smoothly.

The dining table was set and ready for deliciousness to be served at 12pm, after the cards were made.

My beautiful ladies were very busy cutting and creating their cards...

...there were some fabulous outfits and hats too!

I had some cheeky friends...Kelly and Michelle...

...and some special guests... Sapphire our daughter and her boyfriend, Morgan. Aren't they just adorable?

We made three special cards...(non Stampin'Up! today!) oops! But this is the exception, not the norm.

You can see the beautiful butterflies from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set and punch. We stamped with Pool Party and Rococo Rose. Once the butterflies were stuck on with Dimensionals, they were coloured in with Wink of Stella. All the card bases, ribbons and embelishments were stampin'Up!, the image was outsourced.

Don't you just love that Pool Party Sheer Ribbon in the top left corner?

The final card was a funny one...we coloured it in with Stampin' Blends. The circles were cut out with the circle dies.

Like all parties, one needs a game or two... we played pass the parcel with a twist! If you came across a playing card, you had to perform a challenge before you could keep the prize.

Yup, there's always one...lunch is NOT ready to be served yet Madam Rabbit!

Bad bunny!
