Party of Tea!

Good morning ladies! I trust everyone is having a wonderful morning! I however, am not so much. I started getting a sore throat last night and now this morning my whole body hurts. I just want to crawl into bed and go back to sleep. However, apparently when you have small children it's frowned upon to tell them to make their own lunch and answer the phone if it rings while you pull the covers over your head and stay there all day. {grin} Nah, they have been taking it easy on me so far this morning. Hopefully, Clinton takes an early nap so I can make the girls snuggle on the couch with me for a movie so I can catch a few Zzzzs. Once you have a kid, you don't actually 'sleep', you just kinda rest your eyes occasionally. Honestly though, all the kids have to do is whimper and I'm awake and listening. Anyhoo, hope the cold weather isn't making any of you sick!

Oh, and before I continue, Joe and I went to the cheapo movies last night ($3.50 for both tickets) and saw I am Legend. I had a headache from clenching my teeth so hard! Very tense moments! And for those of you who might not know, this is a horror movie. But, if you love Will Smith and not scary movies, it was still worth it to see him doing sweaty, shirtless pull ups! He is one fine man!

Okay, so enough about Will Smith {pauses for one last mental picture} it's Tea Party time!! This week our head honcho Susan Trask gave us a color challenge. It was so funny because I had just had these colors sitting in a pile with the hopes of using them soon! The colors are chocolate, lime, and aqua! Although, I didn't really have any lime, I replaced with with celery. Here is my creation!

  • STAMPS- flower FL-19, WD-142 Lilac Blessing
  • PAPER- DCWV aqua, Chocolate Chip
  • INK- none
  • OTHER- ZIG markers, Nestabilities, Word Window punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, pop dots

Now you guys have to jump in on this Tea Party challenge! Who can resist those fab colors?! So jump in and join the fun! And while your imagining what you can create, take a look at the other smART Cookies creations!!!
