Party Games and Cup Cakes

Party month continues to be very hectic – several real life celebrations, including a big celebration for the team I have been working with for the last 10 months. We all had a great time and I was impressed by the number of people who knew all the dance steps for YMCA!

Make sure you read to the bottom of this post for your chance to win a prize

Last night I was at a joint birthday party so I had the excuse to make two birthday cards using the great sketch from Taylor Vanbruggen’s Cupcake Challenge

The first card uses the Garden Silhouettes and Circle of Friendship sets from Stampin Up!

For the second I could not resist getting my Bella Stamps out again – Winobella could have been designed for the friend that this card is for! I love the flower with the pearl in the middle. All the other supplies are Stampin Up! I love the way you can colour the white ribbon to get the colour you need!

Your chance to win ...
Now we are in the second week of the Lighthouse Party and I think its about time we started the party games … One of my favourite party games is pass the parcel. I love watching peoples faces as they unwrap presents and so this game works well for me – everyone wondering if the music will stop when they have the parcel and if it does what they will find when they unwrap a layer. Who will win the prize in the middle? What will it be?

So who would like to play a virtual game of pass the parcel?

There are three ways you can enter
1. Leave a comment on my blog this month
2. send me an
email this month
3. place an order with me this month

At the end of the month I will sit and listen to the radio, while reading a list of names of the people who have entered. You can enter as many times and as many ways as you like – each comment/email/order will be added to the list I will read. The name I am reading when the music stops will be the winner.

Now like the real game you wont know exactly how many prizes there will be or what they are but I can tell you that there will be at least 3 …

I would love to know what your favourite party game is.

I look forward to your comments and adding you to the pass the parcel list!

Thanks for stopping by
