Just Playing Around . . .

Hello my friends ... Happy Thursday!
Whew! ... well Craft Show #1 is over (went GREAT!) and I'm moving on to Craft Show #2 this weekend at the Barberton, Ohio Mum Festival.  I'll be there from 10am - 6pm both Saturday & Sunday.  If you live in the Akron, Ohio area please come check it out!  And the flowers (mums) all around Lake Anna are gorgeous!!!

Anyways ... I decided to take a break from DT work, as well as Craft Show designing, and just make a card that has been stuck in my head for awhile now.

This is another one of the 'tea' based images I found over on Pinterest and I just LOVE this old time coffee/tea pot!  Reminds me of being at my grandma's house in the winter.  She made tea in her pot since we were kids and not allowed to drink coffee!  That was for adults only!  LOL!

I have had these tea cut stamp/die sets for a few years now and rarely use them ... today was the day!  And how about my 'cinnamon sticks' and 'nutmeg' ...  what fun!!
Have you ever had Cinnamon Tea?  My neighbor is Arabic and on the coldest days of winter she'll call over and have me come share cinnamon tea with her ... it is SO SOOTHING and good!!!

Here are a few challenges I'd like to share in today:
A Random Fan Challenge - Anything Goes (hand colored the tea cups)
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge #54 - Anything Goes/Twist - Tea Time
My Craft Creations - Anything Goes 

Okay ... fun time is over ... I really need to 'get back to work'!  I have a couple more shows the end of October/first week of November so I'd better plan ahead on what I'll be needing.
Thanks for stopping by ... please stop back tomorrow when I'll have a fun Crafty Secrets project to share with you.  Till then and as always . . .
