A Cordial Invitation

Hello, friends!

I feel as if I've been neglecting you... I'm very sorry! I have been going crazy, so I hope that explains it!

The flooding we had in our basement last week really threw us for a loop. (As if anyone is really prepared for something like that...) We have spent almost every waking moment moving furniture, setting up shelving, throwing stuff out and it has been exhausting. One good thing, though, is that it has motivated us to do some much-needed purging. But on top of that, we leave on Saturday for our annual scuba diving trip to Cozumel!

We'll be doing a little bit of this,

and a lot of this.

I know that I should be excited but I feel like the house issues and boarding our two dogs for a week is weighing heavily on me. I know - crazy.

I hoped to have a few things to share with you next week while I'm gone, but I really didn't have a chance. I was able to make cards for the upcoming Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges and Blog Waltz, and with the way things were going, I was pretty satisfied with that!

Ok - sorry for all that chit chat - I do actually have a card to share with you today!

A little fun with Afternoon Tea. I really love this set. The fun flourishes are from the Very Vintage Labels No. 10 set. That is another favorite of mine, too.

Since I've talked way too much already, I'll leave you with that. The card details are all below.

Have a great day, thank you for stopping by!
