tea pot is on

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

It's such a beautiful, sunny day here in Pittsburgh. One of those that you want to be outside enjoying the sun's rays. Well, maybe later.

Right now I want to share with you a card I made for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps day #6 "sweet peeks".

I used the new set "tea time" that will be released tomorrow. I really like this set and I can see many possibilities for it.

The technique I used today is paper piecing. It works so beautifully with this image. Don't you think??

Korin has 6 new sets that will be revealed tomorrow in full. So make sure you drop by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to view them all.

My card layout is from the mojomonday #188 sketch. You could make a round or square card with this one. I made this one a square.
I used the  round sketch 2 days ago with this sweet peek.

My paper is Stampin-Up's springtime vintage collection. I cut 3 flowers from the paper and added 3 pearls to complete my card.

Some other challenges for my card:
1.  The paper cutz challenge #89 is anything goes.
2.  The just add ink blog wants us to use a flower.
3,  The crafts for eternity blog has an anything goes challenge.

That's it for today so until next time.......
