PSSC#6 - Tea Party!

Did you have a great weekend?  I had a house full of family and good food - what more can you ask for?  The week did really seem to fly though - I thought I'd enjoy more time with my son since he was on Spring break, but he was sick for most of it.  At least we got in a few lunches together!  The weather is finally starting to warm up a little - and it is starting to feel like Spring.  On the radio they had people calling in with the first thing they will do when the weather hits 50 degrees.  So many funny answers from putting away all my socks, to shutting off the furnace.  I thought of how I would answer that and decided I would have a fire in the yard!  I got my wish and sat out for a few hours over the weekend.  It was nice to get some sun and fresh air - and as a bonus there are no more stray sticks laying around!

Today I'm playing along with the Paper Sweeties Sketch Challenge.  If you are a fan you will have to check this out. The challenge runs for the entire month and you can win your choice of two sets of stamps.  We also have a new design team member joining us - Maria Patrick from Maria's Merry Makings - stop over and say hi!  Here's the sketch and an easy way to show off your favorite Paper Sweeties sentiment!  I can't help but think of the tea sets when I think of Paper Sweeties and Debbie the creator from The Shabby Tea Room.  I wanted a chintz pattern tea pot without the sentiment so I put regular tape over the sentiment, inked it up, removed the tape and then stamped the tea pot.  I used Versafine Onyx Black for a deep dark impression and then fussy cut it.   
I hope you will join us with this challenge this month -and see all the beautiful things you can make with these stamps.  You can get all the details here.  New releases will be featured later in the month April 13-16.

I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter weekend. I always like making the "day after" a big holiday a big lazy holiday for ME.
