Circular Magical Tea

One more post for today.

Sketch challenges and my follow through. These were for weekly challenges the month of February at i{heart}2stamp for the chance to win a fabulous prize. Aside from the fact that my cards pale in comparison to MANY other card makers I uploaded the most recent card...Darn I hate it when WORK interferes with my Bubble time. So...I didn't make these ALL this weekend - I could only dream for that much Bubble time.

The third card, Comfort Tea, is also a submission for the friend theme over at Saturday Spotlight. When I think friend - I think comfort. It doesn't have an actual image of 'friends' but the card is designed for any friend - because a cup of tea with a friend - what could be more comforting?

Circular Print
~Base card - Paper Trey Ink Vanilla Cream

~Center scallops: PTI Ocean Tides, two layers BasicGrey Recess, ivory colored button with stripe ribbon

Reading is Magical
~Base Card - Paper Trey Ink - White~All four layers of design papers are from DCWV Once Upon a Time (I love that imprinted fairy in the lower right corner on the base layer!)
~Image is from Elizabeth Dulemba - it is a digital stamp - I know someone sells it as a rubber stamp - can't remember where I saw it
~Image is colored in using Copics and is glazed using Ranger Glossy Accents
~Sentiments from Just Rite
~Angle brad from my "i bought this why??? stack

Comfort Tea (Challenge card for SFYTT and Saturday Spotlight)
~Base card - Paper Trey Ink Berry Sorbet
~Layer of TPC Studio Love Stripe - used vertically and horizontally ~Teapot is a free digital image colored in with Copics
~String is from a tea bag - an unused one - so now I'll have to fish the tea bag out with a spoon! (A TEA-spoon.... get it???) Wow that is REALLY lame - I need to go to bed!
~Sentiment by Stampendous Such a Blessing from Archiver's Hot Spot $1.99 bin

Now I really AM finished for the evening.
