Tea dance?

Excuse the poor pun, but today is the 17th which means it's waltz day on the Waltzingmouse Forum and this months theme is tea or coffee so tea and a waltz is a tea dance right?  If you want to know more about the waltz then this is the place to go http://waltzingmouse.blogspot.com/p/friends-blog-waltz.html



I stamped a frame with the frame-it set from Waltzingmouse (which is straight honest - its the photo that's wonky!) and added the appropriate sentiment from the same set into the frame all in a pearl crimson ink.  The stack of cups is made using lots of little snippets of dp traced through a papermania henbury lane stencil, cut out and stuck onto a piece of card I cut to the full stencil.  I added some lines with my fine liner and a little shading inside the cups with copics.  As I used lots of iddy-biddy bits of papers from my stash, I am also going to post this on Jule's Sunday Snippets challenge -http://jules-alwayswithaheart.blogspot.com/2011/08/jules-crafty-snippet-challenge-week-32.html - do I get extra points for the number of different snippets on one card Jules????

I'll be waltzing around the rest of the entries later today.
