A Blank Canvas -- Well, .....Almost!!!


As part of Muddamark's challenge for the Teapot Tuesday, we were supposed to be the 'artist' and draw or paint on our own.........WELL.....that was not going to happen from this gal!!!  There is a reason why I only refer to myself as an arts and crafts person, not an artist.......I CAN'T DRAW TO SAVE MY LIFE!!!  So at first I was going to skip this challenge and just send a different card to the destination station.  Then I decided to get creative.........I kept my canvas white and clean, and only added embossing, piercing, and some bling.  I actually love this card, but the photo is really lousy, despite several tries.  Just picture white, crisp, and clean when looking.

Anyhoooooooooooo....that is MY story behind this white on white card......and I am sticking to it!!!!  So, for my fellow tea party gals, when you get tired of partying inside, come outside the back door and you'll find me stamping away.....and I WILL have some deeeelish cookies and tea.  So stop on by!!!!

AND......
I celebrated the holiday on Saturday night with my godchild, Michael, his wife, Kate, and their energetic and handsome (and very excited) young boys, Evan and Sam.  I brought the pizza and they provided the fun!!!!  We also exchanged gifts that night and I was gifted some new toys, including this set of Diamond Nestabilities (as well as another Labels set......aren't I a lucky stamper??!!!).  So, since they weren't quite sure how I would use these I thought I'd make a thank you and show them up close and personal.  I used this cute little hedgie from Penny Black to get my message across.  The sentiment is by Hero Arts.  The corner punch is, I think, a Marvy punch.

Your white canvas is very elegant and pristine in beauty...and how nice that your family does the research and knows what you really "need!!"
Both of these are wonderful, Joanne!!
