Green Tea

Ok, so I guess being on summer vacation (and I use the word vacation loosely) has me all confused. I keep forgetting what day it is and keep losing track of when I'm supposed to blog. But check out that title. Huh, huh? Yeah, I've still got some wits about me. Green tea, get it? Man, when the girl's on fire, she's on fi-yah! Or not. Anyway, how much do you love this card? Yeah, the best ones always have some kinda story behind them. I made this one weeks ago, so the details are a little fuzzy, but I do remember having 3 of these images just sitting on my desk by the time I actually got the card finished. The first one, I cut too wide so it wouldn't fit on my base. And it had to have all those layers. The second one, I forgot to leave enough green cardstock at the bottom for the ribbon. Darien was laughing at my frustration at this point. That memory is clear as day. But sure enough, third time was the charm and I got this thing done. Yay me! And this card is one in a set that I sent to Rachel, the self-proclaimed tea snob. She loved that first tea card I made so much, I made her her own version of it, and a variety of other cards, including this one. I hope she loves worships likes it as much as I do.

Stamps: Tea for Two (PTI), Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Paper: PTI white, Wild Wasabi & Basic Black (SU!), Accessories: black satin ribbon (PTI), Copics:

Are you kidding me? I can't mail it to anyone, I want to keep it!!!
I thought it was a little box of your chocolates, and I was all excited, already planning on how to unwrap and eat them without ruining them, maybe put the empty wrappers back in the tin so it still looked full... then I saw the cards!
Serisouly, how do you part with these???

Love the teapot. I'd like a real one like that. Great color, too.

what am i gonna do with 'em? i have, maybe, 50 cards that i've made that sit in a box in my cabinet. i either don't like them enough to send them, or i forget i have them. it's probably more than that, now that i think about it, cuz i've got 2 boxes full. anyway, you could do like my mom & frame them. glad you like them!

Oddly, I thought of Krista when I first saw this one, green being her favorite color. And the black just brings it all together. Gosh, you are just so Green!

Well, now I've found YOU because you found ME and I'm so glad! Your cards and your writing are so fun. I especially love how you're combining a little bit of coloring with otherwise clean cards. Great work - I'm adding you to my Google Reader now!
