Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday to you all!!

I have a million things I should be doing
but I just couldn't resist in joining in a new challenge
I spotted through my email 'subscriptions'!


The challenge is from The Scrapping Cottage blog using
Cottage Cutz dies only.

Well, on my 'Sleepless in Michigan' night, last night,
I 'dreamed' up this card!!

As a child I remember going to my Great Aunt Helen's home
in Indiana to visit and she always had a cupboard full of beautiful
dishes and 'teapots' and such.
Even had the shelves with the pretty doily papers on it,
so I just had to get my Cottage Cutz Tea Time Border Die out
and create a card in a 'memory' of her.

I cut the die from a glossy card stock, and then just one little red
teapot for a 'pop' of color!
In real life, the teapots all have a glassy/glow to them, like real pottery!

The sentiment is SU and I used two  OLD 
SU punches to mount it on.

Last week, I received my RRR ribbon club assortment for April 
and this sheer and gorgeous cherry print ribbon was included.
I think the ribbon was just what I needed to finish out my card.

I will be back next week using this same die again, but in a slightly different way.
(I hope you will pop in next week to see it) :>)

Oh, my gosh, this is SO CUTE! Love the die, love the ribbon! Gosh, that ribbon is so cute I'd have to be thinking up stamps to use it with. I think I have one stamp with cherries. This is just so fun and adorable, Diane!!
