The Kettle Is On

Good morning, my dears!

How are you? I am doing well - we enjoyed a lovely weekend with gorgeous weather. I hope you had a great one, too.

I did a little face-lifting here at my little blog over the weekend. I bet you can tell where my thoughts are turning. It is decidedly fallish! I wanted to increase the width to allow for larger photos, and I thought it would be fun to change some other details, too. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Today's card is a little cutie featuring some of my current favorites. A perfect card for a friend.

I used elements from the Afternoon Tea and Afternoon Tea Sentiments sets from Waltzingmouse. The patterned paper is from The Thrift Shop collection from October Afternoon - it was my starting point and I built the colors around it. Don't you love the combo of the blue and yellow?

I added some other little details - a row of pearls and little popped up teabags - to finish it off.

I will be back tomorrow with this week's Serendipity Design Team challenge. Have a great day, and thank you for stopping by!
