This week the Tea Party is going to Palm City, FL to bring some cheer to Barbara, the mother of a friend of SCSer "cookiebaker"(Charlene). Barbara has been going through a rough patch with surgeries lately. She likes hummingbirds and Cindy found a hummingbird teapot to inspire us.. I chose to depict a ruby-throated one since it is the one we see around where I live.

I bought and hung up a humming bird feeder on my back porch this weekend...hhm....hummers on my mind..nuttin' yet, but maybe they aren't in Colorado yet! Ha!
Ooh, Ooh, this is a lovely little card! I love the springy border/frame around your sweet little hummer....be careful, the teapotters are gonna try to nab this one for sure! Love this Sallie, I know Barbara will be tickled to receive it!
Love that hint of sparkle!

I love the orange frame; it works so well to highlight your beautiful hummer and pretty flowers! We had similar thoughts this week; I used the same EF and put my dp's inside the tulip border frame but I really like the way your dp frames the image!! TFS

Not only did you bring a hummer, you brought one of their favorite flowers, the trumpet vine! Such a beautiful hummer here with the flowers, Sallie!! I love the shiny bg that makes the hummer and flowers really stand out!
