Celebration with a cup of tea

Hi everyone,

The moment is there, the last day of 2012 has arrived. What a great year it has been! When I look back on this year, so much has happened in the creative sense, but also in working and privacy atmosphere . I'm very pleased with how the year has gone by. It's now time for 2013. And to end this year and to start a brand new one, Simon Says Stamp and Show has a fun challenge for us, a Mad Tea Party! There are no rules for this challenge, it's an anything goes one! But if you're inspired to make it a tea party like us, please do so!

I always like to interpret the challenges literally, so when I think of a tea party, I think of a teapot with cups. For this challenge I wanted to use products and tools which I discovered/bought in 2012. Like my Silhouette Cameo. It's been a while since I've used it and this 3D project was perfect to put it to work. Other things I bought in 2012 is my favorite ink, Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I absolutely love that color! The Distress Dry Glitter Rock Candy is such beautiful stuff, really amazing that you can give it any color with alcohol inks. My favorite adhesive for metal, fabric, buttons and foam board is Tacky Glue! It's really awesome and a really good alternative for the glue gun, which I always fight with. And not to forget the Idea-ology Mini Gears, I find them so cute and I can really use it on anything.

Yes my Silhouette Cameo has worked its little bottom of and my Glossy Accents is half empty after making this project. I always find it so much fun to pick out the design paper for this kind of projects and with the Little Black Dress collection, I had plenty of choice. I'm very happy with the result and it looks perfect on the table in my living room!

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a Happy New Year!!! Love to see you next year!
