Teacup Card


Hello Paper Crafters.  I hope you are having a beautiful Saturday.  Is everyone ready to prepare their Thanksgiving feast??  I usually wait til the last minute to run to the grocery store and get everything I need.  I still have to dig out my recipes and see what ingredients I need to purchase.  I'm sad that I will not be spending it with my daughter this year .... but happy my son will be here.  Unfortunately, I can never get him or my husband to join me in the sing-a-long.  I love to start playing my Christmas music on Thanksgiving day while cooking.  Get's me in the mood for putting up the Christmas decorations. 

Since it's just the 3 of us, I know we will have lots of left over turkey.  Any idea's / recipes for how to repurpose it??  I do have one recipe a co-worker passed out from Women's Day.  It's "turkey and potato hand pies".  I may just give it a try.
 Today's card was created using the cutest teacup set!  "Floral Tea" .  I think pearls and lace are the perfect embellishements for a card like this.  I have to say, I'm out of the pearl strand and you would think it would be easy to find at one of the local craft stores.  All I can find are the larger pearls.  Hopefully someone will get some in eventually.  The lace is from Hobby Lobby.  I love getting my lace from Hobby Lobby.  I don't have to pay shipping and it's easy to get when I run out.  And of course it's even better when I get it on sale!

Just want to give you a quick reminder about the Challenges over at SpeedyTV!  Every Monday a new challenge is posted.  To find them ...  hop over to the home page HERE.  Then toggle over the Friends of Speedy button at the top.  The drop down menu list all the challenges.

I got some new MFP stamps and will be sharing some projects with you for some of the upcoming challenges.  I have to say it truely will be challenge for me, because they are all "scenery" sets.  I don't know if you have ever noticed, but I have never done "scenes".  Who knows what I will come up with!  All of MFP's new releases are next Mon-Wed.  The Design Team will be sharing lots of inspiration with you during their 3-Day blog hop!  Check out the MFP blog HERE.

I look forward to receiving the flood of emails with address for those Christmas cards!
hugs,
Melisa
