High Hopes Challenge ~ It’s A Party

Happy Sunday. I hope your weekend has been a nice one so far! We have had really hot weather but today there was quite a strong breeze which was really refreshing. My hubby and two older boys went fishing all morning so that left myself and the little guy t home. We played in the garden and went for a bike ride! It was so relaxing. In the afternoon I was able to spend some time in my craft room and made a few cards for some upcoming DTs.

The High Hopes Challenge this week is to create a card with the theme “It’s a Party”. When I started searching for which image I would use, I came across this cute Koala and matching sentiment and thought of my SU Asian Flair set that I haven’t used in ages. I decided they would pair together nicely although it is a pretty loose interpretation of the theme!
