So my nurse friend ordered this card for her boss that has a birthday this week. Her boss loves tea so she asked me to do a tea themed card. I sent her several images and sayings and this is what she picked. The original pre-colored image has blond hair. She wanted the lady to have dark hair because she looks like her boss. So I once again batted my eyelashes and asked hubby to color in the lady and give her dark brown hair. Well he colored the whole image without even seeing the original and got so darn close to original colors. I then took the image and saying she picked and put them together to make this card. She loved it! The image, Tea Time, is a free one at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps
I apparently like this sketch found on Stickersnfun.com as I used it on two cards this month (see below for 2nd card)!

Here is the 2nd card I made this month with the sketch from stickersnfun.com.
I actually made this one first. Trying to use up these stickers that I got at hobby lobby over a year ago. I thought the sketch would go perfectly and it did. I plan on making several other months with the same sketch….just have to find the time.
