Eyelet Outlet Thursday! “It’s Always Tea Time!”

Hello Everyone!

I’m back today with a card inspired by one of my favorite stories – Alice in Wonderland! I love the crazy bold colors and writing of the story – not to mention all the weirdness! This card is actually more of a fun invitation style card for those get together’s with our girlfriends for munchies, tea/coffee and lot’s of laughter. I’ve always loved having my girlfriends over for a bunch of laughs and good food & drink. I had my neighbor tell his wife, my husband & I once that the hardest time he’s ever laughed was an evening he could hear one of my many get togethers when getting home from work, so much so, that he lit a fire in his fire pit, grabbed a couple of beers and sat outside laughing until he cried. He said he learned 2 things that night 1) He hadn’t realized how women really talked and 2) I had great taste in music lol!!! My husband confessed at that moment that he hadn’t actually left with his buddy as I had thought, they remained in our driveway for nearly an hour looking at his friends new car and dying to know what was so funny that entire time lol!! What can I say – ladies know how to have fun ;O)

 I used Eyelet Outlets awesome Tea Pot & Cup Brads for this card and matched my Gelatos to the colors of the brads. I knew my Tim Holtz Pocket Watches Embossing Folder was a perfect match with these brads.  And of course Wonderland is a crazy place so it actually make sense that tea pots & cups hang upside down as well ;O)





These brads are just too cute not to use inside as well and I wanted the tea & brads matching to keep the bright colors flowing throughout the card. So I used my Distress Inks for the tea :O)
