Teapot Tuesday 168

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. 


  1. Aw, Lorraine, I'm sorry life is so tiring just now. And I'm sure the shorter evenings don't help. That's a great gingham effect you created, and a sweet looking cupcake. Family first, definitely, but that includes you and looking after yourself.

  2. Oh my goodness! Is this ever a sweet card! Ha...sweet like in to look at and sweet like in calories! I love that you made your own gingham, Lorraine! And all the different textures and pinks, absolutely precious! Elsie is gonna love this one for sure!
