Wow! Where is this week GOING???

Can you believe it's Thursday already? Tomorrow's school again. Time is FLYING by - next week marks the end of September! And I just got out my personal fall decorations; the downstairs has been done for over a month, because of Mom and Dad's trip. Soon, it will start turning into our Christmas wonderland. I can't WAIT! :D

OK. Back to reality. :D This is the gift I made for my new hostess last weekend, using Lisa Somerville's template on Splitcoast Stampers. (Lisa is INCREDIBLY talented; she used to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and you will be amazed if you go look at her blog or gallery!)

I LOVE this teacup stamp! I didn't ink the "hello" at the bottom - and it doesn't look that crooked IRL. :D It's TINY TEACUP, a single stamp. Very versatile, a great size, and I love polka dots. :D

Let's see. I used Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade, and Daffodil Delight ink, Whisper White and Real Red card stock, and the ticket corner punch. Add a little Real Red grosgrain ribbon with a glue dot, and voila!

OK. I'm outta here. The studio is a MESS, and I have a class on Saturday - it's 3D Mania!!!!!!! :D Have a wonderful day, and be SURE to take the time to STAMP something!

I keep getting mixed up as to what day it is. Stress? What a great hostess gift. I went looking for some fabric with a tea theme tonight, but came home empty handed, so I am enjoying your whimsical teacup. (Whimsical because of the polka dots and the color, I think!)
