Took me an entire week of rest after STAMPIN UP's Convention(not CHA)to step back up to a challenge.....I felt really rusty tonite and it took me a long time to make this card.... in a day or so I may be back in the swing of things!! Convention was AWESOME. You know it's awesome when first you fall asleep while waiting for Michelle Zin to pick you up because you were doing challenges too late, then leave your cc home by accident and have to run back for it and fret about missing your plane, then you drop and SMASH your brand new BLACKBERRY, then lose your credit card when you go to pay your hotel bill, then lose your license when you go to board your plane, and people ask, "How was Convention?" and you STILL say AWESOME!!!!! Bear with me as I recover. :):):) This color combo is awesome.....my dessert is SU's brand new vintage brads......and here is my teapot contribution....
Heard that flowers are needed for tea party at the old water tank!! ( I can ALWAYS help supply flowers!!) I am bringing only one today- but hey, there are two more buds on there....just waiting to show up at the tea party!! This one is named WILD ROSE, after the girls nanny......she accidentally fell on her fanny at the tea party at the old water tank, so her feelings were ruffled and I thought she could use a flower, named in her honor....... so Miss Fanny Nanny, I hope you like your wild rose, named just for you!

Oh Karen, what a great way to get back into things, although it sounds like you've really been have a go of it!!! So sorry to hear of your multiple dilemma's but you've weathered them well and shown up with a gorgeous addition to the teapot gallery! Great to see you at the party.

Your card is delightful and so is the story...I was at convention. Everything was smooth until time to head home! Plane was broke. So had to be put on alternate plane (18 hours later) which got me back home a full day later and 40 hours up. I am getting too old for that!!! Bouncing back does not happen as quickly as it use too.
