Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us. I had so many ideas for this sketch, but in the end decided to focus on a set from Altenew called Vintage Teacup. I am an avid tea drinker.

One of them was my new Vintage Teacup set from Altenew. As an avid tea drinker, I knew this set was a must have item for me as soon as I saw the pre-release. I saw this great color challenge across at Just Us Girls and decided it was perfect for me to ink up this new set. The "gold" in the color challenge gave me the... Read more →
