Paper Cupcakes Tea Party Sketch Blog Hop...



Welcome to the Paper Cupcakes Tea Party Sketch Blog Hop!! If you got to me from Patti P's blog you're on the right track. If not, go to the TMITA/PCC blog to get started. I got to use the super cute "Lily's Morning Tea" image which you can find in the Paper Cupcakes store. Your next stop on the hop is Carol and I know you want to see what she came up with...but before you go remember to leave me a comment (if you need any deets on my cards, just ask) and I do have a bit of candy in honor of Nina's store "Paper Cupcakes"...
If you would like a chance to win this yummy cupcake candy...please leave a link with the inlinkz (aka "blue froggy") below. I'll pick a winner on 8/19/10.

Also if you'd like a chance to win even more stuff, be sure to check out my blogiversary scavenger hunt here!

Lastly I was also inspired by some other challenges for this card so here they are:
1. A Crafty Little Place - at least one tag
2. By The Cute And Girly - Animal antics
3. Clearly Delightful - Tag, you're it.
4. Crafty Creations Challenges - winged things: got a couple dragonflies on this one
5. Cupcake Inspiration Challenge - inspiration photo: well, I was inspired by the photo initially, but ended up with a bit more blue than probably is acceptable...
6. Curtain Call Color Challenge -  pear pizazz, peach parfait, early espresso: well, ditto above, and since I didn't have the new in-colors I used other close colors
7. Incy Wincy Designs - a bugs life: some sort of bug/insect anywhere on the creation
8. Other Lovlies - acetate: hard to see but I used an embossed acetate on the bottom half of the front...was trying to mimic water
9. Our Creative Corner - embossing: got the top of the card front and the acetate embossed
10. The Creative Cottage Challenge Blog - acetate

Now get your hoppin' on!!
Aloha,

Isn't she just the sweatest frog I've ever seen! Life looks good for her - except, how about coffee for 2 instead of tea? Just kidding! Awesome coloring and so much of it. It must have taken you hours - oh wait - that's would be me that would take hours to make a card! LOL!

Have a great day!

Love, SAM aka MOM
