Summer Party Invitation

It feels like Summer already is here - at least after this wonderful and extremly warm weekend we had in Sweden. It was over 25C - so guess if Isac was one happy boy :-)

We got to celebrate Mother's Day with a BBQ on my sister's terrasse. It was just perfect. For those of you that never have been to Sweden - well - I can tell you - this time of the year - it does not get dark until very, very late and only for a few hours. So we are taking every chance we can to sit outdoors and enjoy the light and the warm temperature.

This was a perfect warm-up for this weeks Try it out Tuesday. Suzanne wanted us to create a Summer party invitation. Well - we are def. going to have plenty of parties - but the most important one that we have in our family is the birthday party for Isac. He turns 3 July 15th an are already telling us what he wants for his b'day ;-)
Therefore I decided to colour Isac with skateboard for my invitation. I coloured him with my copics (of course ;-). Then I made a big 3 to go in the background. Used a Swedish stamp with the text: Välkommen på kalas till = Welcome/Invitation to a party for.
Cut it out with my SU punch and added the scallop circle on top of the blue circle that was cut out with my nestie.

Added flowerwire and linked that to a flower where I have written Isac's letters on each of the leaves. I wanted it to look like a big balloon flying in the sky with his name on the flower attached to the string. DPs from Basic Grey.

Hope you would like to play along and upload your projects on SCS or PCP with keyword "TIOT21".

Warm hugs - Anki
