Tea Party Cards and Pics

This is going to be a lengthy post, or at least a lot of pics, so please bear with me. I volunteered to make "Name Tags" for the tea party given for my sister's birthday by her granddaughters. I made 22 cards and there were 20 of us there for the party. It was so much fun - we got to take our granddaughter Shelby along and her eyes grew so wide when she walked in and saw all the American Girl Doll tables and settings. She also got to run around in a Disney princess dress for most of the day, so what little girl wouldn't have a ball doing that. I got my idea from Debbie Olsen's post here, except I modified it and did several different versions of it. I also purchased two Sara Kay stamps with dolls from 7 Kids College Fund and colored each one to match the DP's. All of this happened in two weeks, and believe me, it took up much of the two weeks. Everyone loved them and I was so glad I did it. I made computer-generated name tags, cut them with my Nesties Labels and Tags and sponged them all. The two names bear the person's name and their doll. At the time of the pictures I had not adhered all the names, pending the advice of my nieces. The first picture shows the 8 different designs with DP. I did one of the papers for 8 cards and then two of each of the rest. I loved using my Cosmo Cricket papers and Basic Grey from two different sets. The teapot was from PTI, the bows were all made with my Bow Easy, and I used my Nesties for mounting my images on. I colored each of the images of the girl and doll to match the DP's. Hope you like them. Thanks so much for stopping by.
