It's Time for a Tea Party!

Hey... just me again.  As I was contemplating what I wanted to say for this post, my nose, which is now numb from being too cold,  was just too distracting.  All I could think of was 'I'm cold!'  Ok... so what else is new?  What I'm about to tell you is a little embarrassing, but it's just so me, I decided to risk the gasps from you, my friends - hee hee!  Do you remember the cup of hot cocoa I was going to have with my blankie and doggie?  Well, I have just reheated that same cup I had earlier today.  I never even had a sip...  One day, my hubby asked me what I was making (referring to food).  I told him I was heating up my hot cocoa... His response? 'How many times?' LOL!  I had reheated it so many times I lost count!!!

I just had my last swallow, so it's time we go from hot chocolate to tea.  I now have the pleasure of introducing you to 'Tea Party' by Roberta at Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps.

I used the fab sketch from Fairy Fun Fridays - Challenge 2.  My image is a little bigger than I thought, so I don't have all of the elements on the sketch, but I followed as closely as possible for this card.

Love that glitter and shine : )

Here are the deets:
Copics, pink and brown Spica pens
Diamond Glaze on wings, snail's shell and mushroom
Ultra Fine Glitter on wings
Rose arrangement, rhinestones and pearls from Michaels's
Ribbon from stash
Digital paper pack - Gina Jane Cottage Roses

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenge #73 - going girly
ABC Challenge - layers
Belli Challenge - glitter

Wow... two posts from me today!  Next up is Copic Buzz.  I'll be working on a project that will be a first for me.  I guess that goes to show ya that if I can try something new and out of my 'comfort zone' anyone can!  Come back and see - you just may get a good laugh!!!

Four hours left to enter my 'Surprise' Candy... tick tock...  Winner will be announced Saturday, Jan. 16!

Sending big hugs and lots of love your way!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
