A nice cuppa tea

I think I have mentioned before that I love Kelly Lunceford's cards.  Well I really love what she does with the Papertrey "Time for Tea" stamp set (see this one).  I would love this set but it is not available in Australia.  It is $24 on line but the shipping is $27 !!! how ridiculous is that ? So the best I could come up with was this:

I found a couple of chipboard teapots (wonder what on earth I bought those for??), and although it was really too big I think it turned out OK and I was sooo pleased that I hadn't thrown out the Royal Albert ribbon that came on a gift pack.

One of my Daughter's friends required something a bit more exciting than a teapot so I opted for an evening handbag.  I saw one on a blog ages ago but couldn't find it when I went back to have another look.

and while I was in the fashion mode I made this:

It is a fun set from Hero Arts - there are three other shoes in the set but I always seem to ink this one up. 

I love the Top Note shape from Stampin' Up, and have been hand cutting it for a while now.  I have been told that I can use the SU die with my Cuttlebug but wanted to find out for sure before I buy it. 

I have a couple more things to show but will keep them for next time.

Bye for now

You've been busy Mary! Love the cards. That handbag looks very elegant, love the clasp. Very funky shoe and what a great greeting.
