Shabby Chic Tea Time

Happy Wednesday!

Well, we're down to the wire with our homeschooling paperwork!  I've been the proverbial chicken with it's head cut off, running around screaming things like, "Where's the report you wrote on Beethoven???"  and  "Find all your lab sheets, NOW!"  lol  not a pretty sight in our home!  oy!

Right then, let's move on to task.  I have a shabby chic card to show you today.

Stamps: Robyn's Fetish digital, MFT tag die/stamp set. Papers: MemoryBox dp, a scrap of silver embossed cs. Ink: Copic markers Other: doily, vintage seam binding, Zva Creative gems, glitter glue, fine glitter

With my limited crafting time (don't ya hate when life gets in the way of crafting?!)  I combined my DT themes; at Creative Belli we are using "G" embellishments, gems, glitter glue, glitter.  And at Aud Sentiments, we are using Food/Drink related images.  Robyn's Fetish is sponsoring & has given the DT some lovely images to play with.
