Let's Have Tea . . .

Happy Day All!
I've been busy creating some cards, etc. for a local
Tea Shoppe called Marge's Place At Portage Lakes LLC.
I shared photos with you awhile back
and I just love this adorable, quaint little shop. 

Here's a peek at a few cards I made for them today.

This first card is blank on the inside so it could be 
used for a variety of occasions.

I actually had the pink / green die cut pieces laying on my
table from when I received the die and cut
a quick sample to see what it looked like.
The design paper on this 2nd card was actually a scrap I 
had cut for a different card then changed my mind ... you know how that is!!  LOL!

The die set I'm referring to is the Spellbinder Nestablities Romantic Rose set
which was purchased for Dies R Us.  This set is currently
Out Of Stock but if you're interested, just add your 
name to the 'Waiting List' and you will be notified
as soon as it's back on the shelf.

Well, I have a lot more to get done today so I'd better get busy.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek.
Hope you're having a great day!

As always ...
