It was my sister Debbie’s 40th Birthday a couple of weeks ago & we had an Eighties Theme with compulsory fancy dress. We had an absolute ball with 80’s music, food & no “adult” supervision!
Debbie was really into pink & grey in the 80’s, so I chose those colours to make her card. She also loves cats & wine, so I think this was rather appropriate! I did get the original idea for the cat from a US Demonstrator, unfortunately I can’t find the link again to give her credit.
Debbie also likes bling, so Stampin’ Up!s new self adhesive Jewels ($11.95 for 150) were perfect for kitties collar. The pink card is our new Blushing Bride & I have also used Basic Grey & Concord Crush. The Designer Series Paper is one of my favourites Lap of Luxury.
Taking my creative streak a bit further, I decided to make the cake as well. Now I am not a baker & certainly have had no experience icing cakes! Sticking with the 80’s theme, I decided to try making a Pac-Man cake, after all it is only a round cake with a wedge cut out for a mouth, what could possibly go wrong?! The cake itself was perfect, but nobody told me that adding food colouring to white chocolate will make it go hard & lumpy! With much perseverance & food colouring all over my kitchen, here is the result.
I guess you want to know what “we” looked like! The picture below shows me (excuse my wonky face, I’m not drunk it is just from the remainder of my Bells Palsy) In the middle is my other sister Rose & Debbie is on the end.
It was lots of fun back combing our hair & using heaps of hairspray like when we were 20, shame the mini skirts didn’t quite look as good!
Until next time
