Teapot Tuesday Challenge

Okay, I know it's Sunday, but I only recently came across this wonderful blog called This is My Story authored by Mothermark (screen name). I have always admired her work when I have seen it on Splitcoast. Anyhoo, she has a feature that she began in July called Teapot Tuesday where she publishes a photo of a teapot and viewers are challenged to use that as a jumping off point for a card. Isn't that right up my alley! As a novice teapot collector I sure have my share of jumping 0ff points of my own, but it's so much more fun when you're "playing" with others in a challenge. These are challenges that don't have winners, they just have fun!

So this past Tuesday Cindy (Mothermark) posted this teapot:

And here is what I came up with:

Yes, I know I don't have a spout or handle!!! But remember the teapot is for inspiration. So I have a jar, okay! It's a pocket card and the top (lid) pulls up and you can add your message there.

If you're interested in the recipe, read on:

Stamps: Carte Postale

Paper: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Night of Navy

Ink: Pacific Point, Night of Navy

Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, 1", 1 1/4", and 1 3/8" circle punches, sponges, dimensionals
