Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop 4/28 & 4/29

Hi and welcome to the “Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop!”  Read this with your very best British accent (since I can’t do it)….

If you were just visiting, be sure to start back at the start of the hop 
Ellen the Card Monkey
If you’re following the hop, you should have come from Alex at
So follow along to 25 other tea hoppers as they show papercrafting projects made in celebration of the Royal marriage of Prince William and his lovely Kate Middleton.  

I personally, am not planning on staying up, but may tivo to see some images….  I hadn’t been following along, so in trying to come up with an idea, hubby suggested I do it in the colors of the wedding… So I googled & evidently you can bet on the colors of the wedding… So, I decided to use my own colors!!!!
So, here’s my card:
I got the instructions from:
If you don’t have a scor-pal, you should check it out.. I love mine, and their website has some great projects!  So this is a 3-D card…
Front view
Back View
I did have to put a piece of clear plastic in to keep it stiff, since the paper i used got bent at the crease….
I used: 
Cricut Cartridge – Everyday paper dolls for tea pot & tea kettle (found using since I would have NEVER guessed to look on that cartridge – it’s a wealth of random cuts!)
Paper – All Dressed Up DCWV Glitter Stack
Embellishments – (all were ones I had on hand) – cookie tray (cuz what’s tea without cookies!!!), jolees, Congratulations & presents I don’t know the brand….  Gems from Micheals (from the dollar bin!) and the pearls and tiny gems on cup were from Micheals as well (just not $1)…  

Of course I have blog candy, because what’s a wedding without presents???
If you’re new to my blog, be sure to become a follower. 
What’s the prize?  I’ll give away a copy of the Crafty Card Gallery – an iPhone app (works on iPad and iPod Touch) that is now available for Android Phones. It is a card gallery for handmade cards. You can follow great designers, and look for ideas. It’s updated monthly so there’s always new great content for you… New update will be released soon – I’m just now putting the finishing touches on it!  

You can get it in the iTunes app store and the android marketplace

And another prize (for all comments this weekend, since I’m in two hops) is a copy of the Bite Size Body Guide – a diet & fitness journal for women… Since we all know weddings lead to diets!!! 🙂

How to enter to win? Become a follower and leave a comment. I will select the winners Monday night (5/2) using my random number generator app from all comments for this hop (app) and all comments for the weekend (bite size body guide)….

The next stop on the hop is Nicolette
Thanks so much for visiting & have a great rest of your week!  If you stay up to watch the wedding, be sure to have some caffeine!!!

    OH MY, Jennifer … you've outdone yourself! Who but you would even think to have the magical Prince William himself (in spirit form) lifting that teapot to pour me a spot of tea!?

    You're right about using the DVR to record the events to watch at our convenience. And to replay during tea!!

    Thank you for being a part of this Hop with me!
