Tea Time...

I've had a busy weekend in the studio. The weather is cooling down nicely and we had a mix of heavy clouds and rain, which makes for perfect crafting time! it's a hard toss between doing lawn work and playing with my stamps, but after a hard Summer in the yard (lots of new plants and trees!) I'm more than ready for the grass to die off! In the meantime, I'm going to get my craft show paperwork filled out and sent off today ;-) . It's a really exciting time!

I dusted off my "Tea for Two" yesterday and came up with this little notebook. I was inspired with the neutral colors after I saw THIS card by Kelly Lunceford. Her card is simply gorgeous!I really didn't know what look I was going for here with the printed tea pots. I couldn't vision leaving them blank, so the "tea company" emblem fit nicely. If I were personalizing the tea pots, a nice monogram or even a small "friend" stamp would fit nicely too! A bit a stitching and nice embossing (courtesy of my Cuttlebug folder) finish off the look.Looks to me like something is missing here! I thought about adding some more vintage brads to the sentiment but thought it might be overkill. After sleeping on it last night, I think leaving it just the way it is, was the right thing to do! I love it! There will be more of these for sell at the show...tea pots are stamped and waiting to be cut...any volunteers?!!
