I'm late this week because on Tuesday night I was attending a dinner honoring a teacher friend of mine as one of this year's Teacher's Who Make Magic. She and I, and the teacher that nominated her for the award, worked together in the classroom the last year that I worked in the classroom before taking my office job. We had such a blast together that year! We all got to dress up a little and had a lovely meal, some entertainment, and did lot's of clapping for the award recipients. Way to go AB!!!
So you might think that I had a little extra time to think about my project. Well, not really. I really was stumped until last night when I remembered that I just got this new set from SU - Quilt Quips that had a house on it. And I vaguely remembered having a teacup stamp somewhere, and was thankful that my 6'4" mouse stopped by last night and was able to reach the boxes where I have all my non-SU stamps. (Thank goodness for tall sons who come to raid their mother's cabinets now and again!)
The sentiment in the set says "may your bobbin always be full" and I changed it to say what you see "may your teacup always be full". It's a..... let me think...... it's a rebus now. (Funny word isn't it!) I took a picture close-up so you could see how I colored everything.
The patterned paper backgrounds came from some Bella Rose DSP and a prints pack that I had, which unfortunately I do not remember which catalog it came from. (It's pretty though, don't you think? I should use more of it. Come to think of it, I'll put that on my list of things..... oh wait a minute, that was on my list - to use my stash. Okay, I'm doing better than I thought!)
There are four quilt blocks in the set, but I chose to use only two of them. They were stamped using the Stamp-a-ma-jig and colored with ink and a blender pen. And I just had to get those polka dots in there for Cindy!
I'm pretty pleased with this card - what do you think?
