I'm having a Party

I've decided now the summer's here it's time for a little party, so I thought what better than have one where I get to do my favorite thing, no not that, play with my stamps, it's gong to be on the 19th July, please email me for more details and to let me know numbers, so I can prepare enough card kits for people to have a go at making their own card, I'll also need to know if you're bringing any children I have a little crafting planned for them so you can have peace and quite to make your card.
Edited to say
Sorry I have to change the date to Saturday 25th July due to my hectic schedule.

Funky Friday #24

These are the colours for this weeks challenge click the picture to go to Abi's challenge blog.
I really like it when the challenge only has a few colours, I have had the pocket silhouettes stamp set for a few weeks now and had been waiting for a chance to use it, Ialso used a saying from hostess set best yet.
I used Whisper white and Rose red card, I used the emboss resist tecnique, a tutorial on it can be found here, Versamark, stazon white and rose Red ink Clear embossing powder, dimensionals and Whisper white Taffeta ribbon.
Hopefully I'll get time to make a whisper white bit to go inside the card using the same red ink and stamp set, I really like decorating the inside as well as the outside of cards it means I get to do more stamping.

This is the card I made for a recent card swap, wellthe ones I swaped didn't have the night of navy card they were just card fronts so when I got home and had 4 left I decided to make them into full cards and as the card was a dark colour thought I'd decorate the inside with a whisper white piece of card.
