Looks like we're going to a Birthday Tea Party this week. What a sweet single serve teapot and teacup all in one. That gingham cup is really cute. Can you image opening this box and finding that set inside? You know there is a story to go along with this and you can find it if you click here.
I'm very behind on everything this week. I actually had my card done on Monday night, just never got to posting it. The changes at work have really zapped my energy and I've had projects that I promised to both of my children to work on which have kept me away from everything else. I don't mind that because they still come first, just wish I didn't have to expend so much energy at work multi-tasking. There are so many interruptions during the day that I have to shut down when I get home. No tv, no phone, no noise. These projects help to get me back to single-tasking. When I finally do sit down at the computer the weariness really sets in and I can barely keep my eyes open.
But anyway...... here's my card for this week. I attempted to make my own "gingham" with the squares in two shades of pink and white. The stripes in between are from a third shade of pink. I embossed the white square as well as the icing on the punched cupcake (I think this is the very first time that I used that punch!) I used the red glitter paper for the cherry and some striped dsp for the cupcake base. The sentiment comes from the set of Occasional Quotes.
A little close up.
Pay no attention to the crooked square in the lower left-hand corner - it's your imagination!
Okay - over to the gallery for some oohing and ahhing. Click here to join me.
