Hope your day is Tea-riffic!!

Another card made with the High Hopes Trish Tea Angel. I bought a slab of Wild Aspargus papers in the late fall at Holly Hobby in Minot, ND. They are such beautiful papers...and what a great deal if you go when the slabs are half price. My Dear daugher Trina lives only an hour and a half from Minot and is always so kind as to let me know what will be on sale and pick it up for me. Yes...I know ..lol...I am Lucky!!

Again a quick reminder to check out the Great Deal at High Hopes for the January Project of the Month Special ..which includs this stamp! Click on this link to get there - Jan POTM

Well Ila, you and Trina sold me on the SOTM the last time you posted, so I am waiting patiently for her to arrive. More patiently than I am waiting for the darn valentine's stamps I ordered -- I fear my postman's back will be going out on the day that all of this stuff arrives! Your card is beautiful as always and I hope to give the addition of the H2O's a try on the next card I do. I did an Ila inspired card (darn I should add that to my scs post) with the garden angel stamp. I can't recall her name at the time. But when I got done with the prismacolors I decided I should leave well enough alone. I was afeared what would happen with any other addition. LOL!

Hello Ila,

I really love your cards!!! I saw that you left some comments on my blog and I was so happy about that because I always say that my cards are pretty boring and cards from somebody else are always beautiful!!!

But this High Hope Rubber Stamp is to cute! And do you you know what? I've also got her in my collection!!!
