Simply A Tea Pot

First, I want to extend a huge WELCOME to the newest gals that have become followers....thank you for joining in to see what I am doing. I love it when you leave me some comments so I know you have visited.

OK on to the card.......I made this card for a shaped card challenge over at Mark's Finest Paper.

I struggled with what to do for a shaped card....then I went to the net and found a piece of clip art in the shape of a tea pot and I thought piece of cake.

Great....I thought, until I realized that I don't have a printer here that will work with my new computer....sooo I got the image up on my screen then I placed a piece of paper over my screen and traced it out and laid it on my folded piece of card stock and cut the two layers out together. I even added a little drip thing on the end of the tea pot to prevent any little drips when you pour the tea as I hate when it drips. LOL

I had to make a tea pot so I could use that cute little verse....I just love it. Hope you like what I ended up with.

  9. That is a beautiful card Carolyn and I love the story on how it came to be. It gave me a smile on your clever idea to get the image. However, I must say I bet if anyone else was in the house they may have thought of a few blonde jokes as you were sitting tracing the image on the screen. :-) If they didn't know your printer wasn't working that is.
