Tea time

Hi everyone!   We're off the trail after hiking through the woods with the Young Birders of the local Audubon Society.  It was hot but the company was fantastic.  The warblers are beginning to migrate through our area as they are returning to their winter homes in the south.  My son got a "Life Bird" today - Northern Waterthrush.  He's has over 200 birds on his life list and at 12 years old I look forward to seeing how large a list he'll have as an adult!  I love that he has such passion.

Although we spend hours in the woods and fields, thankfully I still find a bit of time to create.  I am not a lover of tea but I do so love everything about it.  The cups, tins, decorative tea bags ... it feels victorian, vintage and wonderful.  I put together some stamped images that I "fussy cut", added some glitter to a chipboard frame, and layered it on pattern papers with a kitchen theme.  A shabby bow, decorative pins,  a couple sweet flowers, and some pom-pom trim was the finishing touch.  I hope you like it too.

I'll be back soon with more to share ... for now Good Night!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day Joanne. My hubby would love to be there with his camera! I'm not a tea drinker either, but your card is darling, love the layers and pompom trim!

  2. How wonderful that your son has such an interest at his age ... Good luck to him spotting more!
    Your card is as always beautiful ... It really has a homespun feel ... enjoy your trip!

  3. What a beautiful card. I always love all the extras you add to your cards. So glad to hear you have been out enjoying your summer.


  4. You have such beautiful papers and your pom pom trim is the perfect touch! Sounds like you had such a wonderful day!
