Greg's Valentine

Well we had a lovely time at Alexandra's party yesterday, lots of yummy stuff to eat (all calorie free of course LOL)
Though I've been gobsmacked to hear that my American friends don't know what 'pass the parcel' is!!  So Brenda this is for you .... wrap the main gift which is usually for the birthday girl/boy, and keep adding layers of different wrapping paper.  In each layer put a wee gift (pack of sweeties or small toy), make sure you've enough layers so that everyone at the party gets to unwrap at least one layer.  Then all the party goers sit in a circle, put the music on and start passing the parcel.  As soon as the person in charge of the music stops it, whoever is holding the parcel unwraps a layer and finds their wee gift, the music starts again and so it goes on!  Good fun.  (though you need to know what the paper is on the last layer so you know you're stopping the music at the right person!)

Anyway, this card is Greg's Valentine card.  I usually have a tough time making lovely dovey cards for blokes, but I like how this turned out.  Not sure of the make of the rabbit image, its an oldie (possibly Whipper Snapper?) Popped him up on dimensionals and added some red gems for a bit of bling.

  1. Oh my gosh, Lynne - your Pass the Parcel game sounds like so much fun! Will have to try that at the next party or shower! Greg will enjoy his sweet Valentine! This is just darling!!! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Ha Thanks for those instructions..truly I had never heard of it. Maybe others in the USA have, but not me. It does sound like a lot of fun, though. I'll have to pass it along and get my family and friends enjoying it.

    Your card is so sweet for your love. I think the bunny (that must be you giving Greg your heart) is just perfect. He better like it!!!

    Sure, no calorie cake and goodies at the party. Like someone believes you. Bwhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaa
