Come for Tea

I have been very busy. Our little Buddy was neutered on Friday..... and to see my Hubby and I around him ....he may have as well have had a major operation!...lol.... You would never believe we raised 5 kids. But he is doing very well. The vet says the worst thing for him is if he licks his wound. So we have a plastic cone to put on his head so he can't reach it....Well.... Buddy of course hates it... So if he looks like he is going to do some wound cleaning..all we have to do is show it to him and he immediately straightens up and backs away. Very Cute!!...He is doing well!

Come For Tea!!

You are all welcome!! I'll even get some cookies. Since I have had to curb my coffee ....lol...I have may types of tea...something for everyone!!

I love these little "Tea Angels".....from High Hopes. The cute little sentiment is from High Hopes and they have many Great sentiments suitable for tea drinkers...such as Tea Party....Tea for Two ... Hope your day is Tea-riffic! .. Friendship is our special-tea! ..and Come for Tea and there may be more....click on the saying to take you there.

(click smaller photo on top for expanded view)

Here is the recipe for this card...

The SC162 sketch was perfect for this. I combined this challenge with the WT152 - polka dots...WT151 - staples and WT141- stitches. I've never used staples before although I've had the staples for over a year....just needed that little push I guess... I know I will be using them again.

The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils (OMS) and H20's. I used diamond glaze on the teapot and cups.

Stamps: All High Hopes Stamps

Paper: whisper white, K&company, wild asparagus, chocolate chip, blue bayou

Ink: versafine black, close to cocoa

Accessories: flowers, ribbon, bling, pearls, stickles, diamond glaze, staples, stitching, CB corner, flower punches

Thanks for looking!!....I've a few tags....I will get to a little later in the week.

Have a Great Day Everyone!! and thank you for all your Fabuluos comments!!

Ila, I just love these tea angels. They are just gorgeous. I love how you colored them with their big rosy cheeks. If this showed up in my mailbox I certainly would have "big rosy cheeks" too!

another fabulous card, your colouring is amazing! a tip that might work for your buddy, when our Aero went for the snip we put a little baby vest on her to stop her getting at the stitches, especially at night when we couldn't see what she was up to! She did look a bit strange, front legs in the armholes and we had to leave some poppers open for her tail to poke through!
