Waltzingmouse Blog Party and ColourQ Challenge #176

Blog-Party-Logo 70%25
It's the 17 of the month again and that means it is time for the Waltzingmouse Blog Party. This month's theme is "Doilies", as soon as I saw the theme I knew exactly what I wanted to make but then a sweet friend of mine, Sherrie sent me an envelope of fun new goodies from Stampin Up and I had to put them to good use. She included a package of the most adorable Tea Time Trinkets and some beautiful white Tea Lace Doilies. I pulled out my Afternoon Tea and it was a match made in heaven! This is my all time favorite WM stamp set, so many wonderful images you can use. Another sweet friend of mine, Renee from It's a Patchwork Life sent me an envelope stuffed with all kind so patterned paper so I pulled out two of my favorites of the bunch and then my card pretty much made itself. 

One card down and one to second card is for this week's ColourQ Challenge #176. This was another very quick card because I CAS'd Renee's card that she posted yesterday for Cathy's birthday blog hop, you can see it here.  I always love it when I see an amazing card and I have all the goodies to make one too and this was the case with Renee's card. Thank you Renee for your amazing inspiration! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my cards....have a wonderful day!
