Tea with Grandma

It's another week... Happy Monday!  I'm not sure about the rest of the week, but the weather here in California today is HOT.  I know I've said it before, but I much prefer a nice comfortable Spring.  If I could have that kind of weather all year, I would love it!  Isn't that so 'us'?  We don't like to be uncomfortable or inconvenienced.  Oh well, it is during times of trial that we grow the most! (sigh)...

Today I get to have 'breakfast' at IHOP with my sister - yay!!!  I love IHOP.  I wanted pancakes the other night for dinner, but my DH never wants 'em.  He is a meat and potatoes kind of guy - actually more like meat and rice.  His favorite meal would be fried chicken with rice and gravy.  Just what I need to lose weight lol!  Well, except for the ice cream I had before dinner, I only had salad tonight.  Does it count if you have ice cream before you eat a meal?  hee hee! I was so HOT though - grrrrr!  It makes me so cranky.

I have a fun project to show you today.  I really like it!  I took my fave color at the mo, and paired it with an adorable image to create a bookmark.  Then, I decided that I needed a teacup card.  I just love teapots and teacups!  I could have drawn my own, but why?  Karen's Doodles already had one in the image Tea with Grandma.  I cropped it to frame the teacup, then enlarged it to create a card.  I love the pink polka dot paper.  It says, "FUN!"

The rose is a two-step die from QuicKutz.

...and the bookmark

I don't know why Grandma's face looks this way!  
It couldn't be the photographer could it? lol!

Image is colored of course with copics...  Bears:  E35 E34 E31 E30; Cookies and wood:  E18 E17 E15 E13; Pinks:  RV 32 RV11 RV10 RV000; Greens:  G28 G24 G21 G20.  The rose and leaves on the teacup are enhanced with copics also.  Copic bundles are available Here.  Other than my paper trimmer, a pair of scissors and the QuicKutz dies, I didn't use any other tools!
Have you joined in the Karen's Doodles US Challenge yet?  This week's theme is Summer.  Here are the fab prizes up for grabs:
