Tessa Tickle-a-Teapotter is hosting her friends for her annual garden tea party. I see Hi-Ho-Henry is already in attendance. Donny Downspout, Hillary Gardenhose, and Winnifred Watering Can will soon be arriving. Tessa has prepared her famous Bunnykins brew and spent the morning baking raspberry scones which will be served with clotted cream of course. This year she hopes all Teapotters will be able to join her.
The bunny I used from Holly Pond Hill is usually holding a cake. Today I subbed a tea cup from Character Constructions (CC) and added a fancy hat (like Beatrix Potter likes to use) also from CC. The bg paper is from a Spellbinders pad which features some gorgeous vintage style prints. The sentiment (CC) usually says you are invited to attend a spring tea party..I just cut out the spring part and applied the words separately. Thanks for looking!

Your bunny looks so adorable and perfect in that elaborate hat and holding her tea-cup all ready for the garden party. I love your background paper, it reminds me of the illustrations from Alice in Wonderland (or Through the Looking Glass?? I always get them mixed up!). You really did re-invent your stamps wonderfully for this, Polly.

Wow Polly, talk about re-inventing your stamps, you have created a super duper fantastic scene. I have sat and looked at this for the longest time and I am still finding new things. You do amazing collage cards and still make then look like a wonderful scene. I love the names of your little characters and your photo is great too my friend.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

OMGosh, Polly! What a wonderful reinvention of your Holly Pond Hill stamp! LOVE your sweet Tessa. She is adorable in her B.P. style, Victorian hat, and switching out the cake for a teacup was brilliant. Like your vintage paper bkgrd, butterfly and your scrolly leaves, too. I will be there for some raspberry scones and tea. xx
