High Tea Celebrations

Hi Everyone,

Recently in April both my daughter, 4th of my children and
 I celebrated our birthdays this year by  having our own
 birthday preparations as a Afternoon High Tea.
 It was the first of High Teas I've ever been too and
 I found the lead up very exciting. Its the sort of party
 I'm sure many of us would love and our guests
 thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in good company, 
set out on our verandah. I came across some discounted
 curtain panels which help to add sum charm and privacy for our occasion

The Birthday girls- my daughter Courtney and I 
cutting our Red Velvet Birthday cake

In addition to that I received some gorgeous cards from friends
 and thought I'd share them with you.

Love the delicate 3D of the flowers and butterflies by 

Gorgeous card by my team mate - Debbie Ward

This card was given to me by one of my friends and team mate 
- Maureen Crawford, love the 4  stamped rectangles in 3D form
Here are my two mates Debbie and Maureen.

Love the elegance of this card given to me by Debbie Moss
Another two friends Debbie Moss and Amanda Kennedy
This card above was made by my niece who has a special love 
for all things vintage, a girl after my own heart, I can see her
developing talents.
Here she is below wearing a vintage outfit that belonged to my 
Aunty, her great grandmother and it looks like it was made
for her!

It was an enjoyable afternoon and I look forward to be able to do
 something like this again in our home. I'll leave with a few more 
dear friends - Karen Mauch and Rhonda Pepper
Two of my beautiful girls- Gabriella and Courtney

Have a great week
