TEAPOT TUESDAY - JUST US CHICKENS!!

Happy Hump day all!! I suppose this will mean a lot more to me starting next week when I am actually back at work - LOL! Today I am going to share my Teapot Tuesday challenge card, I just loved the teapot Cindy had for us this week!! Check this out, isn't it cute?? I love the colors, and it's fun shape. And, it gave me a good excuse to use this hostess set that I have had for awhile and never inked up - horrible, I know!! And, I really really like it too!! I wanted to make a fun card for no particular reason, just one to have on hand to send out to a friend and "chicken" to see how she is doing *wink* I hand wrote that sentiment, it does not come with this set, but I couldn't resist, it was just too perfect, heehee!! If you want to play along, all you have to do is check out Cindy's post here for all the details - all challenge cards are uploaded to SCS and then we can all check them out!! I sure would love to see some of you play along and join the tea party, it's a fun challenge!! Here is the recipe for this one, I am off to go grocery shopping and then some more shoe shopping as I did not find what I was looking for yet!! Getting ready to go back to work is work in itself - LOL! Have a fabulous day, my friends and thanks so much for stopping by to visit, it means a lot!
