Good Morning!! Did you guys have a fabulous weekend? It was a little cooler (95) here this weekend and it was nice. Hopefully, the 100 plus days are over for the rest of the year. Don't you just love this new set from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Animapeeps? I think this is one of my favorite sets - at least for now. (lol)

This image is "Spot of Tea". It reminds me of having tea parties with my granddaughter. She is 5 and loves to dress up and have a tea party. It is colored with Copics. I tried to give her a bushy tail. I did her blouse with the the Smooch Illuminate to give it a little shimmer. The teapot and cups have Viva Pearl Pen - Ice White on them to make them look like China, then I put Diamond Glaze over them.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Stampin' for the Weekend
- Anything Goes
Friday Sketchers
For Fun Challenge - Ribbon or Lace
Pixie Dust Studio Challenge - Stitch It Up
CES Challenge - Anything Goes
Stamps R Us - Stitches
Practical Scrappers - White Pen

The flowers are the Innoscence Collection - Carnation. They were white and I used my Copic to color them and then sprayed with the Maya Mist - Iridescent Pearl. These Mists are wonderful and spray so even. You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge them and get a better idea of the beautiful shimmer.

Please check out the other DT projects here. I am always amazed at the creativity and different styles used with the same stamp.

NEW STAMPS - Susana has in a new stamp line - Clear Acrylic Stamps by Pergamano from Europe. These stamps are way beyond being CUTE. Gotta check them out.

Thank you for stopping bye. I appreciate all my followers and I do read all the comments and enjoy visiting your blogs.
