Dawn hosted our Inky Fingers Tea Party this past Sunday.  She had a lovely silver tea set and a variety of teas.  The guests brought scones, home made jams, cookies, little tea sandwiches and other treats.

There we all were with our tea, little pinkies up in the air, pretending this was Downton Abbey but much noisier and without the servants. 
When time came to begin our projects, Angela first showed us how to make the calendar we had seen on her blog.  Dawn had done all the work of scoring and printing the calendar pages.  Thank You!

Dawn had an adorable birthday car for us to make as well as 3 other beautiful Asian inspired  cards.

Being at Dawn's was like being at Michael's, she had so many supplies to choose from, and all you had to do was ask for something and you can bet she had it somewhere.  Thank you Dawn for hosting and sharing your creative ideas with us.


Continuing with my punch art fascination, I made these Valentine treat bags for the grandkids.

They were so much fun to make!  It was hard deciding which ones I wanted to do, so with the laptop by my side and Pinterest open, I pulled out my punches and Voila!.  I didn't have any heart punches and had to cut templates first and cut a little here and there to achieve the look I wanted.  Lots of blogs out there with punch art ideas so give it a try.

Meet my little friends

Three days at home avoiding passing this miserable cough on to others and, other than a new book read and one old one finished, this is what I have to show for my time.  My cute little friends the OWLS.

Lots of great owl punch ideas on Pinterest.  Having no inspiration for making cards this was the perfect little project.
