TEAPOT TUESDAY MIXED WITH MOJO MONDAY...

and shown on Wednesday - LOL!! Hi all!! This card is actually for the Teapot Tuesday challenge Cindy posted yesterday on SCS, but I decided to combine it with the sketch Julee provided for this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge because I love it and really wanted to have time to play with it! This week's teapot was a little more difficult for me - lots of unique colors on this one! And, of course Cindy put the thought of belly dancers in my head so all I could think of was snake charmers, lol!! I decided to focus on the colors and combine those with my little snake stamp from the Zoofari set. I apologize for the quality of this pic, it was late last night when I took the photo and the lighting was just NOT cooperating!! The sentiment is actually one I made up myself and just typed it on the computer as I wanted it to be something I could use for an everyday card. Here is the teapot that Cindy provided for this weeks challenge! See what I mean? I thought about a zebra too, but then the handle kept making me think snake and I had visions of belly dancers in my head (thanks Cindy, lol!) so I went with that!! After everything is said and done, I am happy with my TT card, and I hope some of you will play along and upload your take so we can all take a look!! And, don't forget, we are only three days away from the VERY FIRST ScrapandStampSaturday challenge - WHOOHOOO!! This week we have been spotlighting our fabulous design team members so be sure to head on over to the site and leave them some love!!

So, I will leave you with the recipe and I am off to the grocery store and hopefully to get some stamping time in this afternoon!!
