When we got married, they used to give the bride a teacup shower before she was married. Now we don't use these cups too often, because the dishwasher takes the silver or gold off the edges. Now most of my friends prefer to use a mug whether it is for tea or coffee. Now I have china mugs for tea.

This sweetheart of a digi is from Whoopsiedaisy Digi Stamps, and I am entering this card in the CDAC Progressive Challenge for August. I have paper pieced the image, and colored her with copics. The background paper is from my stash, and I used a Martha Stewart punch. The flower is from Studio 18.
It is my grandson Justin's 16th birthday to-day, and we had a nice dinner for him at our house last night.
There were seven of us, he and his brother are now over six feet tall so I would say all adults at the table.
I made him a Kenny K digital card with a hockey player as that is his sport, but with a very busy time over the last week I forgot to take a picture of the card before I put it in the envelope.

CDAC has a brand new challenge, a Progressive Challenge of 6 sessions, first time period 4weeks, after that two weeks for each challenge, with new images for each session, the images are free if you have entered each time. The first image I have chosen is by Anne's Digital Art which had the Top Vote for June "Everyone" Drawing Challenge. It is a sweet image which I colored with copics and Ranger Distress Inks. The BG paper is from my stash. The chipboard kitten and the sentiment are from K&Company, and the lace is from Dollarama Crafts.
I have company for the week end, so will probably not have much time to be on my computer. My youngest son and his three children are here, while my DIL is away with her friends for the weekend. We should have a fun time even though it is suppose to rain this weekend.

which is going on now. I have colored her with copics and have added some glitter glue to the flowers in her hair and on the ground. The fence is also an image from Whoopsidaisy and has been colored with Ranger Distress inks. The flowers on the top of the fence are chipboard and are from a scrapbook kit. The background was done with a cuttlebug folder.
We were hurrying out of the house this morning, so I added this image very hastily to My Page for the gallery, and I left the challenge tag off. Hope I can rectify that little detail (haste makes waste.) Spent the day in Niagara Falls stateside to-day. ( Don't know why when we are crossing the border, I always get behind the car that gets held up for some reason or another.) To-day it happened both coming and going. But we had a fun day anyway.
