Art Impressions Time!


     Good Morning!  I planned on going into work today, but after I called them, there was nothing for me to do.  Sounds good to me!

     This week at Art Impressions, the Challenge is #62 Beverages.  After a quick search of my AI stamps, I found their stamp of the 3 ladies having tea.  It is an oldie, and is # T-1522.  I colored the two ladies on the left and right, fussy cut them, and set them aside.

Here is what I used for the rest of my card.

Stamps:  SU! Tea Shoppe set
Card stock:  SU! Pool Party, Pure Luxury Pumpkin Spice, generic white.
Designer Paper:  scraps of Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket
Dies:  Spellbinders Lg Scalloped Oval
Punches:  Martha Stewart
Ink:  Copic Markers, Pool Party, and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink
Embellishments:  Copper brads, Sparkle from a Sakura Stardust pen (eyeglasses, earrings, tea cups, scrollwork)

We are expecting 3" of rain over the next couple of days.  Perfect crafting weather, huh?

Oh this is a fun card! Love it! I know I was supposed to have a big yard sale this weekend at my parents but with all this rain and more still to come I think we are going to hold off for a dryer week! Not worth ruining my parents yard over it!
