Feeling a Little Like the Mad Hatter

I was feeling a little like the mad hatter at the tea party today stamping with this adorable polka dot teacup and setting up my daughter's cute little polka dot tea set (which I had to use in the photos with the teacup stamp because they were simply made for each other.)

My almost 5 year old daughter loves "Hatter Matter"...the Mad Hatter from the most recent Alice in Wonderland. I have been thinking of what theme to use for her 5th birthday party and we've decided on a Wonderland theme. Including a tea party, of course. I think I'll be using the teacup stamp on invites and other items for the party. Can't wait!

Enough rambling, onto the craftiness I created in the little blue room today.


I am seriously becoming addicted to the tiny little clothes pins. They add such a charming 3D touch.

After finishing up the card I thought, since it is a "feel better" card, that it would be nice to give something that may actually help the recipient feel better. Being a tea cup, I wanted to give a few packages of herbal tea.

I used 2 Stampin' Up! Sizzix Scallop Envelopes to create the box and embellished it to match the card. It is just the right size to hold two Celestial Seasonings tea bags. A little something to soothe the body and soul.

The color combination I used today came from the color challenge over on colourQ...Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso, and Whisper White.

Thanks for visiting. I hope everyone was able to enjoy the weekend.
