Tag Tuesday, The Enchanting Rose Tea Cup Exchange and Letters to Gracie

Hi!  Just a few things to share.

This week's Tag Tuesday theme is "in the style of."  My "in the style of" inspiration was Tim Holtz.  Below is a Tim Holtz style tag I created.

I participated in my first ever tea cup exchange.  Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose  hosted this super fun event!  Thanks Stephanie, I had a lot of fun!  Below is what I sent to Pam at Virginia Retro.  Keeping my fingers crossed she likes everything!

Tea Cup

Card I sent with the tea cup

Fabric flower to add to the box of tea goodies

Below is the pretty, vintage tea cup and tea time goodies I received from Christy Stapf (no blog).  Thanks Christy!  Tomorrow night I'm going to enjoy a cup of green tea and some Lorna Doone cookies!

I also made a card for Gracie, who is a sick, little girl and cousin to sweet Stephanie who hosted the tea cup exchange above.  You can read about Gracie here.

I'm linking this post up at Roses of Inspiration Linkup # 8.

I really appreciate your visits now I found you:)
I'll be back,
Hugs Marilou
