A photo in a canvas, and a Birthday Card

On the previous post, I didnt realise at the time I was writting it that the title could be misleading :o) I am not moving, but my friend is :o(

I organised a farewell party here at my house for Saturday, we were nearly 50 people, counting children. It all went well, except for the horrible and unpredictable weather!! We were in the middle of barbecuing the burgers when it lashed rain !!! thunderstorm and all !! Poor Hubs finished cooking the burgers under an umbrella !! All our friends contributed with food and drink, so I didnt have to worry too much on that aspect.But it was kinda funny that I told them all that I had loads of wine, so dont bring any...and each family arrived with 1 or 2 bottles of wine !! hehehe...we were trying to get rid of what we have !!!!!

I made them a cake, which was devoured !! mainly by the kids !!! it was a 4 layer chocolate and vanilla cake !!

As difficult as it was to organise a group photo, tripod and all, we did it !!! and I printed the photo and put it in a canvas for them to bring to their new home. I used Celine's Navarro mixed media techniques:

Believe it or not, there are 7 nationalities among that group of people !! I have an international network of friends !!! LOL !! can you guess them all?

This is the last of the card orders I have for the moment, similar to my latest styles:

I will be making x-mas cards soon, cos I hate making my own in a rush at x-mas, I want to get them out of the way, so I can concentrate in a few projects I have for a craft fair.

Moving Home (country!) Card & 25th Wedding Anniversary

Hi...I haven't done much lately, mojo gone on holidays ! :o)

But I had an order for a 25th Wedding Anniversary Card, so I came up with this:

I had to make a card for a family, good friends, moving to another country...another culture, another weather !!! going to Abu Dhabi. We're having a farwell party this Saturday, at my house, 50+ people !! My friend leaving is the one who always organises get togethers, night's out, birthday celebrations, etc...so I thought this time it was our duty to organise their party.

I also took the opportunity to make this card with "dimension" so I can use it for this week's Paperplay Challenge:
