Another Tea Party

Tea Party1

If you haven't noticed I am having a tea of a time here.  I don't feel like I've been here a whole four months… maybe because I have always looked at time as an enemy.  Enemy?  Time?  My card-making days have always been numbered.

I have to ship my stamping supplies home at least two weeks before heading out, so I can have them waiting for me upon my return.  I have seven weeks left and I'm having withdraw because I am left with about four weeks to stamp!  Oh dear.

Yikes!  I better get to stampin…….

Mojo309SketchMojo Monday #309 is the sketch of the day for me.  I always welcome a challenge and you should too. =)

Tea Party2

I originally purchased the Tea Party stamp set only because it reminded me of an antique store.  I love going to antique stores and own several pieces, but I love the museum feeling I get when I see old furniture, clothes, and jewelry.

At the local bazaar there is a vendor who sells the prettiest tea sets I've ever seen.  I finally broke down last week and bought one.  I'm not one to use a tea set, but it sure does look pretty.

I would love to give one away as blog candy, but not sure if I'd generate any takers.  If this is something you'd be interested in leave a comment below.  If there is enough interest… I just might give one away.

Who can actually say they own a six cup tea set from Kyrgyzstan?

Tea 1-3 Tea 1-4 Tea 2-2

The tea sets are available in a variety of colors, but I picked this one because it reminded me of our Flower Shop stamp set and the Pansy Paper Punch.

I’m Thinking of You

I work full-time to feed my habit.  What is my habbit?  You’re looking at it.  It relieves so much of the stress in daily living that I love sharing it with you, but I’m often not sure if anyone really enjoys it.  However, I do know one thing, the person who receives my handmade cards loves that I thought of them.

The written letter brings joy to a person’s heart and sometimes moves them to tears.  I love to feel the love.  Have you ever felt this happiness I’m talking about?  You too can send a little love to others.  How?  By joining my Circle of Pals.

Items used were the Polka Dot Parade designer series paper, Early Espresso card stock, Bordering on Romance stamp set, and Real Red card stock for the tiny blossoms with the tiny Basic Pearls.
