It's Tea Pot Tuesday Challenge Time and this week we were to bring a house, cabin, cottage, or anything to do with a home and furniture for the newly married couple Will and Kate.
Since I love log homes and actually built one (the ultimate craft project) and left it in Connecticut, I thought I would bring one like it to the party.
As you can see I used the Martha Stewart Deco Flowers Punch Around the Page, the fence border punch, and the frond punch for the leaves. The Corners are from the Parisian Spellbinders collection. The sentiment is in the large scalloped Spellbinders nestie. The flowers, ribbon, and rhinestones are all from Micheal's. I traced all the edges with stickles and distressed with Stormy Skies Distress Ink.
This is going to our destination station to Charlotte in Everett Washington who was a Realtor. I am sure she will get the humor on my sentiment. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you can play along.

I love each and every card you make - they are all so wonderful and detailed perfectly. Charlotte will definitely love this beautiful card with the awesome log cabin! I love that sentiment - made me laugh! Gorgeous card.

This is amazing Carol. All your cards are absolute works of art. This could very well be my favourite though. I love the fence and the sentiment. I used to dream of owning a log cabin and in my neighbourhood there is an old original one completely renovated and modernized. The logs just glow and look so inviting. I should add it's also large, 3500 square feet, not really a cabin!!!

I can see Will and Kate here for sure! What a pretty cabin/house - it doesn't surprise me a bit that you built one before. Love all the punching and die cuts, but I especially love the sentiment and the flowers. This card is awesome as usual, Bearzi! Charlotte will absolutely adore this card - what a treasure.

That is fabulous, Bearzi!!!! I am so enamoured of Will and Kate -and you know they plan to live in their farmhouse for the next couple of years, while William serves as a Search and Rescue Helicopter Pilot. So -this is just perfect for the Royal couple!! Fabulous image and card as always, Bearzi!!What gorgeous card. Now - the Royal Couple does not plan to have ANY staff, beyond security people. Hmmm - do you think that Kate or Will will cut the grass.....hmmm:)

Lovely! Amazing punch work and embellishing. There's so much to look at, I don't know where to start. But I love the image and the greeting is wonderful. Maybe I should show this to our new next door neighbors. Seems they planted some stuff in one of our flower beds, lol. Oh well.
