ISSC01 - Tea Time!

Well I survived Super bowl!  I don't watch the game.  I usually get stuck with kitchen duty preparing food and snacks for the festivities. My husband doesn't have friends over often so it is a chance for me to thank him for all the nice things he does for me.  This year my son had a group of friends over so there was lots of hoots and hollering!

Have you heard the buzz?  There's a new blog challenge in town!  It's I Spy Sketches from Kim Teasdale!!!  And talk about new - this is really really new!  This is their very first sketch challenge.  I'm new to blogging (I've been at it less than a year) so it's not often I run into something that is newer than me ;)!!  I wanted to catch this one from the ground up so of course you can count me in!  The guest designer for the kick off is Loretta Lock.  If you want to play along you can get all the details here:  http://ispysketches.blogspot.com/2012/02/issc01-with-loretta-lock-and-one-that.html

I started with this great Tea Service stamp from Serendipity - I think it's a real beauty and what better way to showcase it  than with this sketch design.  I embossed the grey background and distressed it a bit with some Pixie Dust Versa Magic Chalk ink to bring out the details.

This one was a lot of fun to make.  I'm looking forward to seeing the great sketches and designs from the guest designer and design team every week.   Have a great day!

Jeanne
