Celebrating Tuesday & Wednesday!

Good morning! It is Tuesday and did I ever get up early!  I couldn't sleep!  So, I will do a post and link to Bleubeard & Elizabeth's T Stands for Tuesday over at  Altered Book Lover.  And I apologize to Bleubeard as I have been misspelling his name!  So, let's get to it! :)  First, I did remember to take a photo of our drinks when we went out to eat and this is usually our beverage choice when we dine out.  Water with lemon.

And yes, another teapot!  This one was a gift and originally sat on a matching cup.  I don't know what happened to the cup.   I have used this more as a decoration in my bookcase, than for tea.

And a tea card I made several years ago.  I love this Lili of the Valley image!  And if that isn't what I look like in the mornings!  On my laptop in my nightgown with my tea! LOL  Well, my hair isn't that neat and I don't have earrings on yet.  Oh, and I am in my robe!  But do have my tea in one hand and typing with the other on my laptop!  The cardstock & Blueberry Crisp DSP is SU!  I used A-2 Spellbinder dies for the shapes. I colored with Copics and sponged around the image.


Happy WOYWW to all the deskers  over at Julia's!  I don't have a photo of my desk, but here is my latest project for my Stash Buster Challenge at SplitcoastStampers.

The challenge was to
1. Use a different paper other than just cs or pp on your LO- I used glitter paper for the snowflake.
2. use eyelets or brads-I used both.
3. Use a tool of choice- I used an eyelet setter and a Big Shot
4. Use a technique- I used a grid technique as well as layering and Mixed Medium

I followed a Grid lesson by Debbie Hodge from Get It Scrapped.  I had never done a lesson from anyone before, so it was fun.  So for my first try, I think I did pretty well.                            

I think this post is long enough!  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Tea Day to the T Gang!
Thank you for stopping by.

WOYWW and T Stands for Tuesday Again!

Not doing much crafting lately!  So, this is what my desk looks like!  I am showing you my desk because I am linking up with WOYWW over at Stamping Ground.  And that is what we do is show our workspace.  We get to see desks from all over the world.

I almost missed the T Party!   We are supposed to feature a drink and hook up to our hosts, Bluebeard & Elizabeth over Altered Book Lover.  The T Gang should be proud of me as  for once I just happened to have my iPad when we went out tonight, so have a photo of our drinks!

We had the  Classic American Deal Meal
 which included a hamburger, fries, root beer & a mudslide.  Sorry we ate it all before I remembered to take a photo!  I should have photographed the d├ęcor, all 50s, like record covers from albums of Ricky Nelson, Elvis Presley, Bobby Rydale, etc.
Another Teapot:

I really like this one, and had to show you both sides of it!  I think this one was a gift!  I think this one will be difficult to part with!

Pillow Top Technique for the background and a teapot die was used to create this teapot card.
Pillow Top Technique was from Gina K.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a wonderful What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday and hope you had a great T Stands for Tuesday!

T Stands for Tuesday, Tea, Teapots, and Tea Cards!

Rejoice in the
Lord alway:

Time again for T Stands for Tuesday over at Elizabeth and Bluebeard's Altered Book Lover where we are supposed to feature a beverage.  I never remember to take my iPad or camera when I go out to eat.  We went out to eat today at Texas Roadhouse.  Fabulous!  I had the single pork chop with the sweet potato and house salad, and hubby had a steak, mashed potatoes and house salad.  The fresh  rolls and honey butter were wonderful.  We had never been there and were happy with the meal, the service,  and cost.  Early bird was only $8.99, much cheaper than later; we were there shortly after they opened at three.   I brought half mine home.  I think because I filled up on the rolls and the peanuts! Oh, yes, did I mention the bucket of peanuts? So, since I didn't take a photo then, I came home a took a photo of my after dinner hot tea.

I took the photo in front of four cups I kept.  What is funny, is again I am drinking tea out of a mug!
It is even a new mug!  I went to a church Chicks, Chocolate and Chai event last week, and someone else was giving away cups.  There were a whole table of them, and we were to pick one for the night and then to take it home with us!

Next on the agenda is a teapot:

This is another teapot our former neighbor had found at an estate auction for me.  They had just bid on a box of teapots for me.  I tried to show more of the scene on the pot.

And some tea art:

I made this card coloring with Copics  an image from Lili of the Valley of UK.  Love their stamps!

Thanks for stopping by to celebrate T Stands for Tuesday.  Have a great rest of the week!
