Teapot Tuesday and a Chain of Love

This week's Teapot Tuesday Destination (MMTPT120) is Lynn, Massachusetts, the home of the 88 yr. young Evelyn Fredrickson.  Evelyn is the mother of SCS stamper, Anne Harmon aka jdmommy.  Evelyn likes to crochet so I thought she might enjoy this crocheted flower.

Supplies:
Paper - PTI, Neenah
Stamps - Hero Arts leaves, SU Absolutely Fabulous
Ink - SU Craft White, Sakura white gel pen, Versafine, PTI Chai
Accessories - button, embroidery floss

This card is for a new Musical Challenge on SCS (DDMCC02).  The song this week is "Chain of Love".

I just happened to pick up some of this chain on clearance at JoAnn's a long time ago thinking it would make a cute handle on a bag or purse.  There's a secret destination for the cards submitted for this challenge...can't tell you yet....shhhh.

Supplies:
Paper - Neenah, SU
Stamps - Inkadinkadoo
Accessories - May Arts Ribbon, chain, clear EP, wire


Pin It!

Hi Charlene

Two wonderful cards! Did you crochet the flower? It's very pretty. I love the simplicity of the layout of this card.

The chain of love card is very pretty. The way you have attached the chain is really clever.
