Here is my card for today's tea party. We needed to bring lots of ooey gooey cupcakes to the party so Cakerella, Gingerella and Tearella can keep their step-mother and snarky step-sisters at bay. We also needed some extra teapots and pink gingham, just in case. To find out what on earth I am talking about, check out the Teapot Tuesday thread here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...s-t540255.html
In real life our cards are for Elsie, a good friend of fellow teapotter, Sharon (smadson). Elsie's birthday is October 31 and we want to help make it a happy one. It's been a sad year for Elsie as she lost her son in Afghanistan. To hear more about Elsie, go here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...5-post252.html
Off to get some tea and a cupcake before they are all gone!

Oh, so delightful. It is as though this stamp was made specifically for Elsie!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

No worries Carla! I hid extra cupcakes! There will be some for you.....hey, what's that all over your backside! Carla, you sat on, I mean found the cupcakes I hid! Or your backside did! Note to self: Hide cupcakes higher up next time! Ha!
Ooh, this is the epitome of a wonderful teaparty cupcake card! I love the feminine feel to this.....flowers, teapots, cupcakes with special swirleys! I love it...and so will Elsie. This will make her want to sit down and have tea with her friends! She loves tea, ya know! You did good!
There's a restroom just down the hall so you can change your clothes. So sorry about your backside!
