A Tea Party!

Hello and TGIF!!!! I am posting today after a snowy day at home yesterday. We finally got snow here and a day off from school. It gave me a chance to curl up inside and work on some cards that needed to be tweaked before I called them finished.

I am also posting today because I was chosen as the featured artist over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog. This is the card I created for their challenge that starts today. Theme for their challenge is a card with a long saying or verse (so Happy Birthday or Love You etc. won't work). At first I thought it was going to made my usual square card and remembered this tea pot template in an old issue of Magnolia Ink. Of course it gave me a perfect excuse to get this adorable Saturated Canary digi. If you notice the invite is on a tag that is attached to the tea pot cover. The card doesn't open you pull it out by pulling up on the cover. It was really fun to make the tea pot!

Fussy and Fancy is a fabulous challenge blog and they are super wonderful so be sure to pop over leave some love and hopefully play along with them.
