A Blooming Great Tea Party!

Hello Folks....well I have to say a BIG thank you to everyone....you clearly all did a sunshine dance for me! Our Blooming Tea party for Marie Curie was a huge success yesterday...complete with yummy cakes, lots of tea, pretty dresses and lots of sunshine! So many people joined us on the day and lots of people supported us via other things....the lovely Lucy Hayward vintage hair stylist worked her magic on us, giving us all fab hair styles (Lucy also added to our donation pot). The lovely Kerry at Wrapped 4 You designed really yummy chocolates for us for our goodie bags....and donated some vouchers for the raffle! A brilliant florist in New Malden called Imagine gave us a beautiful plant for the raffle and Lake-Thomas Cakes made us fab 8 inch cake also for the raffle.

Everyone seemed to have a fab time and more importantly we raised nearly £160 for Marie Curie!


Yummy Cakes!


My siser having her hair done by Lucy (who also looks fab!)


The girlies enjoying some tea


Our brilliant raffle prizes


Wrapped 4 You goodies (not only cute looking, but also very tasty)!

A BIG thank you to everyone involved this year....and I'm looking forward to next year's party!!

Now....I've actually got a card for you today too.....


Sorry for the awful photo!!

This little cutie is a Pollycraft digi image and I have coloured him with my Promarkers. I've used plain and patterned organge papers...along with some paper lace and faux orange stitching. I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Sporty (or Olympics)
Crazy 4 Challenges - stitching
Pink Elephant - orange
Alphabet Challenge - L for Lace

Pop by all the challenge blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created for inspiration!

Thanks for popping by today,
