Here I am, late for the tea party again! Hopefully I am "fashionably" late this week! Our teaparty is in Cedar City, Utah and we came here to show Matt and Jed what we actually meant when we said we needed red hats for 42,000 teapotters! They are a little slow from all the bangs on the head and instead of fashionable red hats came up with red hardhats! To make sense of all this, check it out here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...t-t515642.html
In real life, this card is for fellow Splitcoaster, Joyce (jjai) who is also fellow teapotter, Jennifer's (mother's daughter) Mom. Joyce has been battling cancer for many years and recently had a necessary surgery that left her with some other difficult health issues. You can read about Joyce's story here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...3-post166.html
Joyce is a Red Hat lady, so the teapotters are donning our finest red hats to send some cheer Joyce's way.
I'm coming in the front door this week, so hopefully there is still some tea left even though I'm a tad late!

Oh yeah, there is plenty of tea...its the cookies that are thinning out....you would think us teapotters would be full of Christmas treats......but if you really want some, I will give you some from the newbie stash! Tee hee!
I love the sparkley you added to this feisty little red hatter! She is so precious.....I have this set! I forgot I do until I saw it in the gallery this week....its awesome...I am loving her big baubble on her finger!

Oh dahling, this is absolutely wonderful!! A wonderful image and great use of the purple and red, the swirled bg just bumps this up another notch!
Just for fun, maybe all us SCSer's need to get ourselves a sparkly boa!
I too, will fix another pot of tea!!

I bet one of those big trucks going by Cedar City distracted you and you missed the exit. No worries we party for several days as you well know. Your card is sure to add cheer to Joyce's day with it's bright color and shiny stickles.

I love the ring and the bling! She is styling for sure! She's definitely ready for the teaparty and appears to already have started to have a good time. Wait, don't start with out me! Beautiful job of designing and I'm sure Joyce will love it as well. TFS
