Last Day to Enter August CDAC Progressive Challenge

Today is the last day to enter CDAC's Progressive Challenge for August. If you enter, you will automatically receive the digistamps to be used for the first two weeks of September. Click on this link to get all the details.

This lovely teapot, cup and saucer are a couple of the freebies for August. I will probably use this card as one of the birthday cards I need this month. The background paper is one of the patterns from the Imagine Blossom Cartridge. The pink strip is a scrap from a card I made earlier this week. I used Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Edge Punch on one edge and added tiny seed pearls. After coloring the digistamp with Promarkers, I added Glossy Accents to the teapot and cup and saucer to make them look more like glass. The accent embellishment is a piece of tulle tied with ribbon. Promarkers used:
Flowers - Purple, Fuschia, Violet
Leaves - Leaf Green, Forest
Tea Pot & Cup - Ivory, Vanilla, Gold Gel Pen

This is a side view. I adhered the teapot, cup and saucer with foam adhesives for dimension.

The inside of the card is simple. I added a label and used Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Corner Punch.

Donna, Jacob and Craig are in Pigeon Forge for a few days before school starts. Jacob starts to school Sept. 6. Their school opening was delayed because of the tornadoes in April.

They are staying at The Wilderness in the Smokies which has a huge water park. Does Jacob look like he's having a ball or what?

They have a ride called the "Storm Chaser". Donna calls it "The Toilet!!" Apparently, it's pretty tall. It drops you and you fall into this tube of water that swirls round and round (like a toilet), then dumps you in about 3 feet of water. They talked Donna into going down it yesterday. She screamed all the way down. You've not heard anyone scream until you hear Donna scream. LOL

She told the guys last night, "I'M NOT GOING TO RIDE THE TOILET tomorrow. Jacob thought she might change her mind but she didn't. I was invited to go with them but that doesn't sound like my kind of fun.

Thanks for stopping by today. We love your visits and comments. God Bless You!!!! Peggy

Hi Everyone - Donna here - we have had a blast the past few days but it's back to reality tomorrow. Open House for school is on Thursday! Jacob said that the only thing that would have made our trip better is if Mamaw had come with us!! I don't think we would have talked mom into going down "the toilet" though - I had a moment of pure insanity. The first time Jacob rode it, he started crying, but then he wanted to do it again and again!! Thanks for your visits and your comments!! Mom, you did a great job on the card (as usual)!! Until another day, God Bless You!! Donna


  1. Peggy, your card is beautiful! I forget about Glossy Accents. Your teapot and cup are just perfect! I will be using this technique! Loved the story about the "Toilet"!!

  2. Beautiful card Peggy. Just loved that teapot. So very pretty. No, that toilet ride is not for this "MeMa" either. You would hear my screaming in England. LOL would love to visit where you were some day when hubby retires...if he ever does!!!! That part of why I make cards. Gotta keep myself busy, while he works! TY for the terrific look at your vacation and your fabulous card. Love your blog.

  3. Beautiful card! I love the glossy accents you added.

  6. Beautiful card. I wouldn't ride "the toilet" either.

  7. Just incredible! The tea pot is amazing! I love how you did the glossy on the tea pot! Fantastic... as always!!!

  8. Well, at least Donna didn't cry after riding The Toilet (that we know of anyway!) !!


I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
