F is for Friends & the Shabby Tea Room Challenge!

"F is for Friends," and for FUN! Take a look at this adorable flashcard from October Afternoon's "Alphabet Cards" available over at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

This design is for today's "Polka Dot Tea Party" challenge at the Shabby Tea Room Challenge blog. This week's challenge sponsor is the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!

My brightly colored design is a departure from the colors that they show in the challenge picture, but does contain polka dots and friends--what more could you ask for in a tea party???

I've been working in an end of year mode as we will be finishing our school year June 3rd. This design is suitable for a colleague who is also a good friend!

As mentioned above, the flashcard is from October Afternoon and made to coordinate with October Afternoon's "Report Card" 8 X 8" decorator pad.

May Art's cheery Red and Ivory Gingham Ribbon, along with an old button threaded through with May Art's Natural Jute twine, add an extra special touch.
All of the products used in today's design are from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
