The Squirrel and the Fox 34 - Party Time!

Hi, guys! I'm sorry I'm so late with this, I should have scheduled it but time has been running away with me this week! Hopefully things will settle back to normal next year!!

Our final Challenge for 2012 at The Squirrel and the Fox is Party Time! Very appropriate for this time of year, I think! The sponsor is 'Make It Crafty' (the store is closed until Jan 7th for the holiday at the moment) and the prize is an AU$15 voucher to spend in the shop!

I used 'Party Zoe' for my card, which is for a Scottish friend to celebrate New Year, 'Hogmanay' in Scotland!

I used my new Hero Arts Cupcake die for the base - I love it so much! Party Zoe is coloured with Speccies (list below) and I put Stickles on her blower and Liquid Pearls on the stars on her hat.

Isn't she a happy little soul? I love colouring Zoe's MiC digi images, though this one took ages because I just could not  choose the right colour combo! Originally I went with pink but she didn't look right, then I changed the papers I'd intended to use and went with red, and it's a great improvement!!

The papers are Basic Grey 'Life of the Party.' The stars all have a dot of stickles added. The sparkly organza ribbon is from Hobbycraft and the bow was made with a bow-easy!

Do conga across to The Squirrel and the Fox and have a look at my teamies' gorgeous makes, they are so inspiring! It would be lovely to have you joining in and making your own party creation!

My own pre-New Year 'celebration' always includes defrosting the freezer and discovering all kinds of everything tucked away at the back, and then I madly have to cook everything that can't be refrozen. I have 1 small pork chop, half a bag of peas, a quarter of a bag of spinach, and a handful of green beans. Time for a curry, I think!!

Thank you all so much for your amazing encouragement this year, it has been very special.

I hope you all have a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2013

With tons of love, Mags B xxx
