Catching up.


I have a few things to say first:
I want to thank all my followers, readers and commenter's here, I love hearing what you have to say and it makes my day when I read your comments.
Second, sorry for not reading and commenting on the blogs that I usually do but I have been working for the past week and just don't have the time that I did, to follow up on all the blogs.
It is great to be working again even if it is only for a few weeks.

I actually have some cards, to share with you tonight and I will keep some until tomorrow or Sunday, just to keep you following! hehe.

Over on PCP there is a Tea Party Group and they have swaps once a month and I have taken part in 2 of the 3 swaps so far.  This is a strange group to have on a crafting site but it is surprising how many enjoy the cuppa while crafting.

This is the card I made for my first swap. The criteria was to include, 2 different samples of tea along with something nice to eat! And as it was in summer, flowers had to be included somewhere on the project.

I used DoCrafts "Hot Diggity Dog" by Andrea Jayne designer paper as the main focus for this swap. I folded it into a "Tea Bag Baggie" I used a template from Watlzingmouse Stamps.
On the front is an image of a teacup, which I cut out using my nestabilities circles, I inked this with Tattered Rose distressed ink. I mounted this onto a scalloped circle die cut also from my nestabilities set. The "Baggie" is closed with a white brad. The tea bags themselves are wrapped in other designer paper, K&Company Designer paper which I have for so long I have no idea where I purchased. These are tied with bakers twine.

On the back is just a flower Rosette which I make from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Designer Paper.

I, in turn, received these from "RATS" (not real name!). This is the front, isn't the little teapot charm the cutest?
and it opens to this,

Designer Paper: DoCrafts - Hot Diggity Dog by Andrea Jayne, Cosmo Cricket - Early Bird, K&Company.
Baggie template: Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Colouring Medium: Distress Inks - Tattered Rose, ProMarkers.
Miscellaneous: Brad - No idea, Bakers Twine - PCP Secret Pall 1st.

Hope you like,
