Sunny Tea Set

Good morning! I know lots of people are being slammed with tons of snow. We have no snow here, it is just cold and rainy. I thought this bright and cheerful tea set would be the perfect card to show you today. We were in Target the other day and they have a really cool new line of kitchen ware that I would love to have. It is a little retro looking but comes in the colors I used above. I really. really want to do my kitchen in red and yellow with a retro feel. Kip isn't totally on board with it yet. I think he is picturing the inside of a fast food restaurant. My love of color scares him just a little bit. I went shopping with his sister a while back and we were looking at paint and I was looking for reds and yellows for my accents and she kept bring me samples of golden paints and wine colors. I kept telling her RED AND YELLOW and she kept bringing lighter shades of the same colors. Finally I told her red and yellow like the crayons in the primary box. Scared her a little too!

Anyway onto the deets of this card! It is a digital image from Shirley's 2 Girls that I printed and colored with Copic markers.  The ribbon was left over from another project and was the very last of my red gingham ribbon. I think the buttons are from Making Memories. After I got everything colored, I cut the image and used foam dots to adhere it to the card. Would you like a copy of this image? It is free on the S2G page on Paper Craft Planet. Thanks for visiting with me, stay warm and dry!
