Happy 1st Birthday to Nehal

Good afternoon folks .... Hope this Saturday finds you well.  We've just come back from our neighbours daughter's 1st birthday party and thought I would upload the card that I made for her.  It's the first card that I've actually given out coloured with my new copics ... I've been practising, practising, practising and I hope you like my efforts ...

I realised at about 9.30pm last night that I hadn't made the card for the party which started at 11am today (aarghhh...) and nothing that I had already created screamed one year old so I whipped out the copics and coloured in this gorgeous "oldie but goodie" CC Designs / Cupcake Brigitta .... I finally fell into bed on the dot of midnight with the unfinished card sitting on my table waiting to be finished this morning! As you can see I managed to get it done on time and I will admit that it turned out reasonably OK although it does look much better in real life (the colours are much more vibrant).

I have to say that the party we went to was one of the nicest parties I've been to for a long time .... Our neighbours' oldest daughter has become a good friend of Isabella's and they are such a nice family.  They're Indian and the party was full of traditional Indian singing, speeches (most of which we couldn't understand lol) and food  ... OMG the food!  It was vegetarian and I've realised that until you've tried a traditional home cooked Indian meal you've not eaten good Indian food ....

So all in all a great day was had.
Hope you like the card and the little story to go with it and 'see' you next time.
