A CAS and a Teapot

Two cards today.  I've had this one done for a few days but didn't have time to get it posted.  It's for Sharon Johnson's ssnotime150 Color Challenge , the Play Date Cafe's Color Challenge - pdcc40  and  Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge #5 color challenge.


We are to use green/yellow plus black and white or ivory as the neutral.  For the Play Date challenge the colors are black and white with a touch of green but I think my ivory is light enough to pass.  wink, wink
This next card is TOTALLY different.  It's for the Teapot Tuesday and  Teapot Destination Station challenges on SCS.  You've got to go to Teapot Tuesday and read all about the party!  Penelope, Blossom and Bea are having a tea party to celebrate the opening of their new shop.  Charlotte, aka Charlie did not want to go....no way, but her mom made her. You can read the whole sad tale here.  :-)

I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch 84 and flipped it 'cause Charlie's so tall.

Thanks so much for your sweet comments and your visits.  They make my day!

The Cutting Cafe - It's a Cupcake Kind of Day

One of my all time favorite sets stamp sets from The Cutting Cafe has got to be All About Cupcakes.

I LOVE, love this set!  Maybe because it's got 49 images (yep, I said 49!), or maybe it's the cool cake stands, or the awesome sentiments or maybe, just maybe, it's all those yummy cupcakes!  Whatever it is, I find myself pulling these images out of my computer all the time.

I found this sweet little pincushion pattern (Just Desserts) online.  Be kind, this is my first one and I must have been tense when I was doing the stitching because some of them are a bit tight...as in uptight!

At any rate, I just had to make a sweet card to go with it.  I think this would be a sweet little gift for any  big or little girl occasion...birthday, get well or just "thinking of you".  How about when your little sweetheart begins her first stitching project?

Would love to know what you think!  Thanks for stopping by the playground!!

This is for the Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Anything Goes ddcc #83
