TEAPOT TUESDAY CHALLENGE

Hi All!! Whew!! I am busier than a one-armed paper hanger, LOL! But, I had to play along with Cindy's Teapot Tuesday challenge, they are soooo fun!! This week's teapot was all white - yep, not a lick of color, so we were challenged to only use ONE color other than white for the card. So, I made a congratulations card using one of my favorite colors, RED!!! And, I did use one of my new Sizzix Texturz Plates which I love - they are really fun and the designs are fabulous!! If you want to play along with the challenge, check out Cindy's post here and you will get all the details as well as the upload code for Splitcoast. Come on, the gals that play are really a lot of fun, and it's a great challenge!! I know I would LOVE to see what you come up with! No need for a recipe on this one, lol! The stamp set is Eight Great Greetings...and that is all folks! I am heading out the door for an all-day errand list to get ready for a HUGE day tomorrow that I cannot share with you now, but will in the near future if it all works out....which I am really hoping it does!! And, Chris, I am NOT preggo - LOL! And, this has nothing to do with stamping but something important to me...I promise I will share soon! Till then - have a fabulous day and I will catch up blurfing tonight when I get home (my workshop has been resked for two weeks from now which worked out nicely!)
