Tea Party in Dublin

After another harrowing day, I needed an escape so tonight, between electrical storms, I went to the 'stamp cave' (appropriate name for my stamp room created by my dear friend Dawn (DawnL) when she visited recently. I played around a bit with the Violet Garden set of stamps from Creative Design Boutique. I was inspired by Cindy's (Mothermark's) Teapot Challenge.

The tea party was being hosted by Sabrina in Dublin today, so I kept with the flower influence of the teapot and threw some green in, cuz that is what Ireland is supposed to be...lots and lots of rolling green hills!!!

Well...I just check out Rox's fabulous Sketch Challenge and her magnificent masculine masterpiece of a card, but I just don't think I have the umph to make one tonight. See ya all in the morning!!! Sleep well!!!!
