Farewell to Artful Times

Neet and Wendy from the fabulous Artful Times have decided to finish this wonderful challenge blog.  I will miss it so much but will keep up with Neet and Wendy through their own brilliant blogs. The last challenge is anything goes but with a party theme.  I have done a fairly clean and simple party card that I will be able to use for a birthday or congratulations card.

The white card has been cut near the bottom with one of the dies from My Favourite Things Stitched Basic E Borders. The little stars are from Winnie & Walter clear stamp set Sparkle and I used gold Encore ink.  The balloons were made using  Clearly Besotted clear stamp set Make a Wish and matching dies and were stamped with Hero Arts Shadow inks as was the sentiment which is Inkadinkado.  I added Glossy Accents and gold embroidery thread to the balloons to finish off.

I will really miss joining in with the Artful Times challenges - please pop over and say goodbye!  I was guest designer in February which was great fun!  Thank you so much Neet and Wendy for having me!  In fact, I was the only guest designer!  I hope I didn't contribute to the downfall!  That wouldn't be good!

Thank you so much for visiting me - I appreciate your visits and comments so much!  Have a lovely week.  Take care - Christine xxx

You certainly did not contribute to our closing the site, we had hummed and aahed about it for ages. Thanks for being such a lovely GD for us, I just wish we could have carried on but sometimes these things have to come to an end.
This card is certainly embracing all that I had in mind when I chose the theme for our final challenge so thank you for the stars, balloons and everything.
Thanks for contributing as much as you have Chris - and certainly will see you in Blogland!
Hugs Neet xx

This card looks like my idea of a celebration--sort of a subdued party. I really like it.
