Tea Time . . .

Happy Monday All!
I'll be leaving tomorrow afternoon for a fun crafting get together with my Midwest friends but before I start packing up my crafting goodies I wanted to create a couple of cards for challenges I enjoy participating in. 

My first card today is for the "Tea Party" challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.

Using this beautiful photo for inspiration, we are to create INCLUDING A TEA CUP/TEA POT OR PETIT FOUR/SWEET TREAT, LACE/RIBBON and PEARLS!
 This is right up my alley since it has a 'vintage' flair to it.  Isn't this inspiration photo fabulous?!

Recipe for this card is:
Papers:  White cs, SU design paper
Accessories:  Offray pink satin ribbon, Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker tool, Pop Dots, Kaiser pearls
Dies:  Spellbinder 'Tea Set' #S5-076, Cheery Lynn Designs 'Add a Flourish' #B456 (used for steam), Cheery Lynn Designs 'Swedish Spring Oval Frame' #FRM135

A few other challenges to share in:
Dream Valley - Anything Goes
Crafting At The Weekend - Anything Goes
Krafty Hands ChallengeAnything Goes
Open Minded Crafting - Use Some Ribbon
Just For Fun Challenge - Ribbon or Lace
Craft-Dee Bowz - Anything Goes with handmade bow

Well I'd better get busy TRYING to figure out what all to take ... I think I need a bigger car!  LOL!
Please stop back later today when I'll have a PURPLE creation for the Cards 'n Such Challenge to share.
Hope to see you then!
