It was a Tuesday night at the Roxbury... everybody was there, bustin' their moves on the dance floor. Well... almost everyone. Poor Tony Teapot, the loneliest guy in town was sitting on the sidelines, bemoaning the fact that he could never find a girl to dance with. You see, every time he leaned to the right, he leaked hot water, so Tony could only sit and watch. Anyway, the part of the evening he'd been waiting for had finally arrived... Madeleine Peyroux was taking the stage and as he heard those first discordant notes on the piano, he looked up and saw the woman of his dreams! OMG... she was perfect! She had big, boxy shoulders, arms all askew and (best of all) she had some mighty big saucers! It was a match made in heaven, and now you know the story about Tony Teapot and Tina Teacup, who are dancing to the end of love.
If you're wondering what my tea is spiked with, check it out here and help us celebrate Roxie's 323rd sketch!
Edited to add: Congrats Roxie... belle of the Sketch Challenge Ball! A tip of Tony's top hat to you! In honor of this momentous occasion, I added my hand-drawn sketch to your SC150. Thanks for all the hard work you put into the challenges each week.

That is so cute! Did you really draw the central images? They're wonderful! The background paper supports them really well (echoing the dots on their sleeves) without overwhelming them. And your story brought a smile to my face. An absolutely charming card.

I was trying to figure out which stamp I need now - then decided this one is not available LOL!! Great job - I especially like the tea pot dress - but I must say, that print might be just a bit too much of an attention getter, if you know what I mean...
The polka dots are also just right!
