My card today was created for three challenges!
Taylored Expressions Sketch TESC127
Teapot Tuesday this week is all about the dogs - inspired by a teapot decorated with a frolicking pup - we are to bring whatever kind of dog we have to the tea party. We also need to help provide enough sanitary facilities for all these canines - hence my row of leafy trees! My sentiment is a fun sticker by EK Success. The cute little pooch is Rag Dog by American Art Stamp/Emerson Quillin and the trees are Teeny Trees by Waltzingmouse (I told you I can't stop using this set!!).
I used Taylor's fun sketch for my card and the colors of cream and greens inspired by the Shabby Tea Room photo - to be inspired by Nature and Green!
Thanks for stopping by today! I'm back to work this week - but surprisingly it's ok!!??
Oh - and I keep forgetting to tell you all! My new little Grand Nephew arrived 10 days early - Landon Holmes Caggiano was born on 9/7/10 (due 9/17!) and since I was home on vacation - I was able to go to the hospital and wait with my sister for the arrival!
Landon's middle name (Holmes) was my father's first name (his mother's maiden name). My dad died suddenly at the age of 66 when I was just 28. Only my son (who was 3) knew grandpa but we always talked about him to our kids. So my sister and I were in tears when Katie told us Landon's full name (they had kept the name a secret until he was born). Landon is my sister's first grandchild and my first grand-nephew!
Here he is about 7 hours old!
And here's the new little family! Katie, Landon and Greg
Thanks for indulging me!!!
