SIT FOR A SPELL,,,,HAVE SOME SWEET TEA.......

The SUO challenge this week is something "sweet" - like a cupcake or a cookie or candy....or in this case, it's a teapot full of chai.  Over the years we have had the priviledge of 4 trips to Africa.  I can still close my eyes and taste and smell the chai.  It's a sweet creamy tea that is as common there as coffee is here.  So I decided to use my new stampin'blends and make my card sweet tea.  These papers are buy three get one free this month, so even my classes will enjoy making a teapot card this month!  I also love these background papers that I paired with the Color Me paper.  TOO many ideas swirling around in my head and not enough hours to stamp!!  Hope you will join in this month and make a card that depicts something sweet.  Lord knows, we could use more SWEET in this world!!  Happy Tuesday everyone!!~~

COUNTING MY BLESSINGS....

The SUO challenge this week is favorite new Holiday Mini products.  This is one of my favorite new stamp sets in it - called Count my Blessings - which is also a good thing to do!  I also LOVE this black and white ribbon....so decided to combine the two.  I dug out my old Blendabilities to color since my new Stampin'Blends are still on their slow way to me.  :(  Fun stamp set and fun ribbon - two of my favorite things!  I cashed my Stampin' Rewards in this week or THE CRUISE TO ALASKA....I am still pinching myself to believe it!!  NOW THAT'S A BLESSING TO COUNT!!! Happy Tuesday everyone!~ Until next time, Karen
