I'm late for the tea party again! It was such a busy week, but I finally made my way to London's Finest Tea House, Dolly's Tea Parlor, for our high end, week-long tea party. See all the details here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...n-t512932.html
In reality this card is for Brenda, a friend of Tina (GardenDiva), one of the teapotters. Brenda is battling cancer and recently had a mini-stroke. In real life, Brenda and Tina host wonderful tea parties in Brenda's Victorian house. However, with all of Brenda's health issues, they haven't been able to have many parties lately. You can read all about The London Teaparty Ladies and Brenda's story here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...0-post156.html
Our cards are to send encouragement and cheer to Brenda as well as to help celebrate her upcoming birthday.
I hope that there is still some tea left, even though I am late. Maybe I can still get some Thanksgiving leftovers!
