Tea Party blog hop- chance to win some stamps!

This release has had to be my favourite yet. I am a huge Alice fan and sweet Gabrielle reminds me of Alice and tea- not sure if I have mentioned it before but I am a massive tea addict. I drink a couple cups a day. I can't function until my second tea in the morning and then I have another around 2pm to make it through the rest of my day. I collect tea stamps of any kind. I didn't want to say this before but I am 99% sure Kimmie cooked up this release just for me. Don't say anything to her because I don't want her to be put on the spot and deny it otherwise she may feel like she has to do a 'special release' for each of the DT. Okay...maybe not just for me but also for her mom Diana who is also a fan of tea. So the Spring Release is really the 'Diana and Andrea my two favourite people who are fans of tea' special release. Realizing how much of a mouthful that is I can't blame her for just going with Spring release ;).
This card uses one of the many accessory stamps that come with the kit- 5 in total actually. I wanted to show how just an accessory stamps and an saying can make a sweet quick card. This card is from myself and Diana to Kimmie (who is an avid coffee drinker) to thank her for the special release she won't admit is for us. Thank you Kimmie- from the bottom of our hearts tee hee.
I have pasted the other DT names below for today's blog hop to help you hop on your way. If you are already hopping along next stop is the incredible Melanie (who I asked Kimmie to never put me after- you will see what I mean....). Don't forget to leave a comment at each blog as we don't know whose blog the lucky comment's winner will be on. There will be 2 lucky winners for this hop and they will receive some of the Tea Party images and accessories. Nice!!! Now the Tea Party set is only available for a limited time and at the discounted price. It can only be purchased at the Kraftin' Kimmie store. Well...I am off to drink a cup of tea. Have a wonderful day!

Andrea...you silly girl!! Never put you after me?? Your cards are GORGEOUS, and I always love them!! Yup...I confess. I too am a tea addict!! Gotta have at least 2 in the morning...and in the evening, my kettle boils many times! I'm loving your card here...the accessory stamps are fantastic for making cards like this(I'm thinking I will have to make a few gift sets!)

I was thrilled to run into you yesterday!! Hopefully, there's more time to sit and chat next time (and perhaps do a little colouring??!!).
