No Corners Allowed


This week, the Tea Party challenge is to make a round card --you'll have to come in the back door if you have corners on your card. (And...they say it smells back there....lol!!!)  The suggested destination for our cards this week is Suart, Florida.  I will be sending it to Sandy, a friend of a friend of fellow teapotter Charlene (Cookiebaker) who is currently undergoing chemo for her second bout with breast cancer, and has faced many other challenges in recent years.  I hope it makes her smile!!!

I used a bargain Just Rite set I bought at the recent stamp convention.  And.....with the help of a very special friend who stamps '4' fun in CA (hint, hint), it was easy with the gift of a stamp handle for the set.  I added some Primas, a Zia pearl flourish (cut into two pieces), some MS punched branches, and a paper doily.

If you have time, it would be wonderful if you could join us on Tuesdays for this challenge AND send the cards to brighten the days of people facing all sorts of challenges.  It brings a smile to them and an even bigger smile to yourself.
