Cool Afternoon Tea

My older son is back to school today but he has a doctor's appointment nonetheless. Just some mom paranoia! Luckily, they have early release today so Maxwell & I can finish up his classroom Valentine's. Talk about waiting till the LAST possible minute!

I am finally getting back into the challenge swing! This is today's SCS sketch challenge. I am still playing with my new SU stamps. I challenged myself to use the One Smart Cookie set. It was hard to figure out how to use that small stamp on such a large card! I will have to try to make some 3x3 cards with that set later....
Recipe:
Stamps: One Smart Cookie
Paper: Afternoon tea dp, groovy guava dp, chocolate chip textured, whisper white, certainly celery
Ink: chocolate chip, certainly celery
Accessories: chocolate ribbon, celery ribbon, corner rounder

Beautiful card! You would have to use the one paper I didn't order yet...

I'm so glad to hear that someone else waited until the last minute to help their kids make valentines! We bought the bags and candy after school today, and finished up the stamping after homework, dinner and girl scouts. Fortunately, my girls are getting to be pretty quick stampers!
