Tea at the Botanical Gardens...in Ireland!!!

Grab your finest hat and white gloves for we're off to meet Sabrina (Cook22) in Dublin, Ireland today for da Muddermark's tea party! I am so excited; I've never been to Ireland! Sabrina is so classy and refined that we all need to be on our best behavior today (you got that, Bertie?)

Here's our inspiration teapot for today. Please make note that you'll definitely want to bring your hat since I understand we're at risk for bird doo-doo in our hair.....blucky, blucky poo-poo!! And, if you forget your hat, you have to come in the back door so we don't embarass Sabrina with any unwanted additions in our elegantly coiffed hairs!

I chose to use this scalloped Spellbinder die to simulate the shape of a hat, and I used Roses in Winter because that is the stamp set that immediately came to mind when I saw the inspiration teapot. My little birdies are from the Love You Much stamp set; I cut them out and popped them up with dimensionals. The speckles are from Petal Pushers. I stamped this pattern on a full sheet of white cardstock so I can use some of it again in future designs.


I hope to see you there

with no bird doo-doo in your hair!

Stamps: Roses in Winter, Love You Much, Petal Pushers
Cardstock: Rose Red, Whisper White
Ink: Black, Pink Pirouette, Positively Pink, Rose Red, Mellow Moss, Barely Banana, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Spellbinder circle dies, dimensionals, dauber

Your little round card is adorable, Charlene...what pretty little birds and flowers!!! I'm really glad you don't have any bird poop on your card....your birds must be constipated....bwahaahaahaa!!!

Mothermark said...

Constipated birdies? Yep, that's the key. Way to go Joan, way to solve our problem! What constipates birdies? Google it Bertie! We need to constipate them quick. Everyone is forgetting their hats, some hats are too little (Ahem!) and some are just flat saturated! Bluckkee, Bluckkee Poo Poo!!

Okay, I will get serious and tell you what I think about your card! I love it...you did so good in creating your beautiful background piece! And I love the little black speckles. Its beautiful Bertie!

Dawn (flowergal36) said...
