Amazing Race

Last Saturday we were invited to a mystery 50th birthday celebration starting at 1.45 p.m.  It transpired that we were to be involved in an Amazing Race event.  About 50 people were put into teams with a driver, a bag of 'accessories' and given instructions/challenges and off we went.  Just as we left the rain started falling so after a jaunt around Caroline Bay to find the answers to the clues we were like a bunch of drowned rats with accessories (in my case a tinsel wig) however the competitiveness took over and we just got on with the task which saw us carrying out all sorts of challenges - singing the rubber ducky song to a plastic duck and our clown mascot in a local hardware store was just one of the bonus point challenges.  The day was a huge amount of fun for all involved and thanks to J & S for their wonderful organisation of the event after which we had a meal and celebration party.  Psst - I was in the team who won the most points. 

I will leave you with the birthday card made for the occasion.
 For the 'Happy Birthday' sign I used rub-ons onto canvas, folded it over and sewed along the top before threading on a double ended pin.  Also used were Martha Stewart punches, Tattered Angels clock surround with the top cut off, alpha, bling, trim and a stamped, embossed image kindly given to me by Rachel.  Pop over to Rachel's blog and check out her Mothers' Day 'cake pops' - they look great and they are delicious.
 I frayed the edges of the canvas a little and added a hammer trinket. 
That's all for today.  Was supposed to be having an early night to catch up on some long over due sleep but it is 10.37p.m. already.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Until next time .....
