Tea Party

I made this card based on Kim Wilson's inspiration photo over at Off the Wall Craftiness and Jen Del Muro's most recent sketch at i{heart}2stamp! I have been wanting to play along with Kim's challenges for weeks now and FINALLY had a chance to do so. There are SOOOOOO many fabulous and inspiring challenges posted each week, and I have such a difficult time trying to fit them all in. (Anyone else having this problem?) So, this time around, I combined a couple of challenges.

Here's the inspiration photo (click HERE for the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge details):

And here's the sketch (click HERE for the SFYTT challenge details):

And finally, some photos of my creation:

I absolutely LOVE tea (both hot and iced)! A dear friend of mine recently introduced me to Teavana!!! Oooooo...have you heard of it? It's a total "tea experience." The walls are covered with shelves full of gorgeous cast iron tea pots and tea cups. And when you walk in a staff person takes you around this beautiful space to sample different tea blends. Then, you can order a cup of tea to drink right away...or, you can buy the loose leaf tea blends to take home! If you're a tea drinker, it's heavenly!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're having a good week!
