Let's Party!!

Good afternoon folks. I hope you're all having a nice weekend? Yesterday was a total washout, but today is looking more promising, so fingers crossed.

DD is going to be 13 in a couple of weeks and has decided she wants a BBQ party and some girlfriends to sleepover (deep joy)!! So I thought I'd better get the invites sorted. Now don't ask me why, but I made this job a lot more complicated than it ever needed to be and it wasn't 'til I was halfway through colouring the images it dawned on me! Doh!! Why did I bother to colour every image? Pass. Why did I just not use my graphics programme to colour the image and create a one layer card? Pass. Do I enjoy complicating things? Clearly!!! Anyway eight invites down the line and here's what I came up with!!!

Now all I have to do is pray for good weather and stock up on ear plugs!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
