Hello my friends. It's Tuesday again and I was able to put together a card for Teapot Tuesday. It was a tough one for me - masculine - no flowers, no bows! Is that possible? Well, apparently it is. I did come up with an idea that wasn't exactly what it was supposed to be, but I came pretty close except no tools.
c/s - Stampin Up Summer Sun; XPress It Blending paper
d/p - My Mind's Eye - C'est La Vie (I think)
Ribbon - Stampin Up - Crushed Curry polka dot;
Sentiment - Q is a sticker and the rest is computer generated
Stamp - Stampin Up - Loads of Love and Accessories
Teabag - can't remember offhand where I got that
Metal embellishment and buttons - from my stash
Don't ask me why I used Quip on this card. I spent so much time trying to figure out a "Q" word to use and this one finally came to me and I found a cute poem about the word, so I printed that off and will include it with the card. Too long to add here.
That's about it. If you want to play along, check out this thread for Charles's mailing information. To read his story about why we are sending him cards this week, read it HERE
