Shabby Tea Room Challenge~Party Time

The Shabby Tea Room Challenge blog is having a Party Time challenge for their one year birthday of their blog........so fun to particpate in these challenges.......using their inspiration photo,  made this "darling" card that I have to tell you it is so much better IRL.....I just can't get good pics anymore......new camera time??  Anywho, because I have a sleep problem, I was up at about 2:30...or was it 1:30...not sure with the time change...but it was quiet...no TV....no dog wanting out...cats were all sleeping...very peaceful.....so I jumped on the computer and saw the post for this weeks challenge....got off and started working...I just finished...whew this one took me awhile...well I did the little gift bag 3 times before I was satisfied (there are 2 of them in my waste basket)......the background embossing folder is a Cricut one...love those little cupcakes and perfect with just "one" candle in them.....
.I first made the little banner...it actually pops out more then the pic shows...I cut it, then stamped my polka dots on it...sewed on those tiny little buttons and real glass beads....picky little work.....gathered up some lace for my flower and added some vintage white leaves I was hoarding behind it....and look at that little teapot tag....I LOVE IT.......cut it with the Cricut cartridge "A Child's Play".....sewed the same little glass beads on it as on my banner and stamped it with "Tiny Tags" from SU...I love this set...if you like "tiny", you would, too..
.for my little gift goodie bag, I stamped all over it...gathered another flower, added some pearls to this tag...both these little teapot tags "open"...
 now I have to apologize for making you do word verification.....I have tried not using it, but was slammed with spam, and 2 nasty virus's that caused me to loose everything I had in my document folder and all my photo's.....twice...so I am leaving it on as I was instructed for an extra safety feature...sorry, I hope you understand.....I just cannot have that happen again...my poor old heart can't take it...LOL.......
