Its.....'Time for Tea'

Time for Tea

Hello everyone and welcome to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

This weeks challenge theme at Try it on Tuesdays is.......
Time for Tea
Once again there are some fantastic ideas from the team so please pop over and take a look.

My project started out in a traditional
way. with layers, stamps, die cuts, paint  and inks. Then ended up with a few digital additions when I added the words.
One of the layers is kraft card and I sprayed this paint which soaked into the card, but it does have a shine to it in places.

We hope you will come and join us and have some tea time fun.

Hello Tea friends,
 I hope you don't mind  that I have included you in my TioT's post today.

 Tea Day over at
Bleubeard and Elizabeths
 is always a post relating to a beverage of some sort
and as you can see from the this  photo, the cuppa was also on my desk,
A  warm welcome awaits you at my Mad Hatters Tea Party.
As I was assembling my bits and pieces,
 I ended up cutting out more cups ,  with less pattern on them.
Now instead of using up things, I have added more to the box to be used at some time in the future.

Thank you all for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.


  1. So much fun on this project Yvonne. I bet you had fun making it.

    Happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. What a fun post. I hope you don't think we're all mad hatters at the party! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  3. What a super fun project and all that great details -
    Happy Try It On Tuesday start - the last challenge was a blast - so many gorgeous entries for the
    Lets get messy theme! It will be hard for us to just chose 5 favourites this time I guess!
    We are for sure some kind of mad hatters on the blogs - aren't we?!LOL!
    Happy T-Day!

  6. Amazing page Yvonne !! Really great ! I love this rabbit with the clock into the cup, fantastique !! I wish you a very happy day ! Big hugs. Caty.

  7. Love both versions of your card Yvonne, the Mad Hatter coming out of the tea pot is brilliant. Nice to know the 'bits box' is getting replenished too.

  8. Very cute Yvonne. The mad hatter is a classic. Sometimes it's nice to have those extra bits of things, you don't have to take the time making them on another project, or you find a nice surprise when you forget what's in there! I really need to start using my stash up!!

  9. Oh, I love this! The perfect use for those TH tea cups, and the tinting on the image works so well to bring it to life. Great digi additions too!

  11. Your box of extra bits must be really fun to dip into Yvonne.

  28. I feel horrible that it has taken me so long to visit. I’m not a very good host this week, and for that I apologize. I simply adore this new challenge at TioT, and look forward to playing, too. I think your Alice stamp set is out of this world. I bet you get a lot of use out of it, too.

    Thanks for sharing your tea with us, as well as your tea inspired art for T this week. Again, I apologize for visiting so late.

  29. Your Mad Hatter journal page is fab! I love Alice in Wonderland stuff.
    Happy (belated) T-Day,
