Tea Time / Mojo Monday

Hello!  I have missed you all so much.  I have spent the last couple days catching up on every ones blog that I haven't had time to make anything myself.  I am still trying to work out my work and craft time.  It might take me a bit.  Please don't think I have abandoned you.  I cherish all my blog friends and visit as much as I possibly can at the moment.
I made this card for this weeks sketch at Mojo Monday.  It is a fabulous sketch and I have wanted to play along all week.  I decided to go fallish.  What else says fall than tea and tea pots?  That is one of my favorite things to do when cooler weather comes along.  I have so many vintage tea cups but only one tea pot.  They are a lot harder to come by in good condition.  I used this old K and Company paper called Ancestry.com.  It reminded me of vintage wall paper. 
I have also decided that I am ordering a light tent.  Now that I am back to work I won't feel guilty about ordering it.  I hate that my photos are not consistent.  It was after supper and the sun hasn't come out in 2 days so I went and took this out on the deck.
I just love the old shabby feel this card has.  The lace, gold button, and leaves just tie it all together.  I also did some stitching around the edges.  Which I need to practice on my sewing too.  Time..never enough!  I will be stopping by again tonight to my friends blog to see what you have been up to.

I also wanted to thank June who made this wonderful badge for her blog Friends and gave it to me.  I am so honored.  Then Ros also passed it on to me.  I love you both and cherish your wonderful friendship.


Love and big hugs to you all,

Heather
