Tea time challenge at IAE

Yay, My blog tools are back up in the tool bar. It seems somehow my blog was switched to the New Editor version. Maybe when one of my teammates changed another blog in which I co author that affected this one too, since it says this will affect all of your blogs, do you wish to switch.
Above is my entry for this weeks IAE challenge which was Tea Time. I tweaked a free image from The Graphics Fairy, making it look like needlework and added a textured background and type to the saucer. I imagined a group of ladies sitting around in comfy chairs near a fireplace, their needlework in hand and a cup of tea at their sides, sharing personal stories of a bygone era.
Go check out the other entries, when you get a chance.


  1. So pretty Tammy, the little birds on the teacup are gorgeous! I love needlepoint, all those tiny perfect stitches!

  2. What awesome needlework. This is so reminiscent of something my grandmother might have made. It is perfect for the IA challenge.

  3. I am always in awe of any kind of needle work. It is the work of the Gods! I have no patience for that kind of work, and I bow to anyone who can crank one out. I still have a christmas stocking when I was in high school many years ago that is still not finished!!
    Very nice entry for TEA!

  4. love that this is done to needlepoint - sweet

  5. Sorry I'm late for tea LOL, this is so cool, can't do anything with needle & thread without hurting myself, I adore the birds on the cup, are they budgies, it's very sweet & gorgeously refined just like those ladies that drink it :)


Thank you for stopping in and saying hello. You have made my day! Enjoy yours!
