Tea for Two & Two for Tea


Today's card is featuring one of the newest Stampavie stamp lines that ABC Toys & Crafts has started carrying "Designs by LEERE" I used "COFFEE GIRLS" but my girlies are drinking "TEA"
Check out the ABC Design Blog where we are featuring Erin Thiem as our
very first
(she even gets a super cool blinkie to display letting everyone know she has been featured)

"Friends of ABC Toys & Crafts"

The ladies on my project represent my daughter and I (yep look closely, the one that is ME even has purple hair!!) When my daughter was home from college recently, I took her to a wonderful Victorian Tea House (The girl LOVES her TEA). We had so much fun and even sat at a little soda table just like this. I will also have fun creating cards for my little sister. Growing up the only dinner table we had was an antique Soda Fountain Table. On the rare occassions that our mother cooked, she would set up our table like a fine restaraunt, put our kool-aid in wine glasses and welcome us to "PAMMIE POO's Restaurant"!! Cannot wait to get started on that project...................


Here is a close up of the antique Sicilian Teapot and Lace that I purchased in Sicily before leaving. To die for ehhhh?


The inside sentiment was created with two stamps from the Crafty Secrets Stamp Set " Sweet Stuff ". I used one of the Spellbinders " Fancy Tag " Shapability dies.


CHALLENGES I USED:
Fresh Brewed Designs: Girly
Stamp Something: Something Punchy (I used 3 different dies)
Stampsmith Challenge: All Dressed Up (this is there VERY 1st Challenge)
Wild Orchid: All Stitched Up
Paper Sundaes: A Change of Seasons (not necessarily meaning weather I chose the changing from a girl to a woman with my daughter having tea all grown up!!!!!!)
