I'd better mark this one down because I doubt I'll be able to ever do it again. LOL I made a card that I can enter into not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 challenges at the same time! WOOHOO! Two of the challenges are new to me. I've been checking them out (especially their stores--hope I get some money for my birthday!) and since the card worked out for them too I'm going to give it a shot.Here are the four challenges I'm entering this card in.
City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #6 Recipe Card--1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 flowers
The Shabby Tea Room Week #11 Polka Dot Tea Party
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 68--make your own flowers
Simon Says Stamp! Challenge Blog--pink (or blue) with green and brown
All my flowers are made from hand cut petals that I shaped and stacked or squashed in the case of the buds.
Here in the south we drink more iced tea that hot tea, but I have always been drawn to tea pots (at least the minature kind). I'm crazy about little glass miniatures! My grandmother had a collection of the little critters that used to come as premiums in flour bags. Squirrels, rabbits, birds, dogs, cats--all kinds of little bitty glass creations. I have those plus several that I have collected over the years. They're not easy to come by. I did find a few in Nogales, Mexico many years ago but you don't just walk into a store and find them. Anyway, along with these I have collected several mini tea sets and I inherited some from my mother-in-law who also collected them. My collection is put to shame by a friend at church though. She has a shadow box type shelf unit in one of her bedrooms that is almost the entire size of one wall and it is filled with miniature tea sets! That's a lot of tea!
