Stars and Stripes

Hello there ladies,

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  This weekend I spent most of my time in the garden which needed some serious weeding!  It’s a thankless job don’t ya think, but one that needs to be done nonetheless.  We have been experiencing some fantastic weather here but this afternoon Mother Nature decided to play a trick on us… black clouds rolled in and we had a wicked thunder and lighting storm.  It was short-lived but it actually helped to cut some of the humidity we have been experiencing which I am quite thankful for.

In between the rain drops I decided to try my hand at this week’s JustRite Challenge which is: “Stars & Stripes

I really look forward to the JustRite Friday Challenges and all of the wonderful inspiration that is posted each and every week!   Well, enough of my rambling…

Here is my card, when I thought of the 4th of July, I immediately thought of fireworks, so I decided to incorporate one into my card!  I also have been anxious to use my new “Summer Words” Stamp set.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

JustRite Friday Challenge #076 – “Stars & Stripes”

Joan’s Gardens Weekly Challenge #24

MY SHERI CRAFTS CHALLENGE #88 – “Oh I Love America”

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope you come back again soon,

The Shabby Tea Room – Week #121 ‘You’re Invited’

Hi everyone,

I cannot tell you how excited and “over the moon” I am to be the guest designer this week at The Shabby Tea Room.  I am sooo in love with this lovely blog and all of the uber talent that I see here each and every week!  The wonderful DT team never ceases to amaze me and I find myself looking forward to seeing their wonderful inspirations each week.  The challenge this week is:  ‘You’re Invited’ and we are asked to create an INVITATION based on the inspirational photo below:

So with this this great photo in mind, I decided that “You’re Invited to a Garden Tea Party”!

I started with making a tea party invitation and it quickly progressed into a full tea service.  I was having so much fun that before I knew it I had an invitation, a tea-pot shaped card, a cup and saucer and even a cake plate.  I planned on adding sweets to the cake plate but my husband got into them before I could finish the plate.  🙂

I do hope you will join in on the fun.  I can’t wait to see what you create.

If you have the time, please stop by the design team blogs.  They do such a wonderful job every week to provide us with such fantastic inspiration.
