Good Evening...hope your days are going smoothly. Last week, my friend El suggested I take the teapot challenge at This Is My Story's blog here http://mothermark.blogspot.com/2009/07/tea-party-on-lily-pad.html. I had come across her blog previously and admired her collection of teapots. I too am a collector, but not as avid as she. A while back, El gifted me with a lovely frog teapot. I also collect teapots. I thought it too pretty to take out and allow to get dusty...don't do much dusting around my house, so it stayed in its box. So, the challenge provided me a chance to take it out and maybe...maybe, I'll put it out for visitors to see for a while and even brew a cupa tea when it cools a bit...right now, I'm drinking iced.
So, here is my teapot and card. I'm sorry it's a bit lit. The blog has moved on to another teapot challenge. My ds paper is digi from a British company here http://www.making-handmade-cards.com/1-card-making-club.html. The cs is general stuff from my stash. I used the CB on the pink mat and the Nesties for the squares. I've had the frog for a long long time. He's a bit goofy looking to me, but as with all things frog...I like him. I used my Cropodile to evenly space the holes and pebbles to accent the frame. One of the darned things came off while I was handling the card as I was taking photos. The ribbon is non-descript and I used my "Bow Easy" to tie the bow. Love that thing.
Hope you have a blessed rest of the week.
