T Stands for the Buggy Tea Party

Happy Tuesday ladies. Its already once again
and also this month we get a double celebration as it the May 2.
Time for Second on the Second also.
You can check out both of these events over at Bleubeard's and Elizabeth's blog. And it would be great if you joined in also. All you need is a drink inspired post or link up to a previous blog post.
So today I decided to forego the food and drink photos and focus on some cards I made back in 2009 with a T theme.
I don't show you cards very often, but I used to make a lot more of them. I call this set  the Buggy Tea Party.
But these work for T Day with their tea theme and Second and the Second due to their being posted on my blog 8 years ago :).
 The original post from May 4, 2009.
 The original post is from May 4..
The original post from May eight 2009.
And I thought I'd share this photo with you.  Many of you know  Corrine. We live fairly close to each other and met up for a fun day out this past weekend.  We went out for pizza for lunch, and you would think I would remember to snap a photo for T day. But silly me, I didn't.
But I think this is a fun selfie.
And also today I have a journal page for Try It On Tuesday. The challenge is Transport.
The car was in an ad I received in the mail, and I figured it was perfect for this challenge.
And here's a close up of the quote sticker I added.

So this Tuesday I am headed back  to Boston from some pre-op tests and meetings. I won't be around next T day as  I am donating a kidney to my husband. (Or at least I hope the date doesn't get changed due to bad pre-op results.) But I hope to be back on the 16th. I'll miss checking in for sure. :)
Have a great T Day and second of he month everyone. We have some rain here, but hopefully you are basking in some spring like sunshine.

The cards are beautiful. The teacup with the flower and butterflies reminds me of some my mother's teacups. I'm so glad there isn't a picture of food. The goodies everyone posts are so tempting, I almost lick the screen (-; A really nice photo you took of you and Corrine. I never take good pictures like that. A thumb or out of frame or a head cut off usually happens. You certainly nailed the transport theme. That old-fashioned car is perfect.

Will be thinking of you and hubs. All will be well.

These cards are super I love the blue one first, then the pink one, and of course like the other one too. That is a very pretty teacup, I'd love one like that.
Great to see you and Corrine together, I'm sure you both had a lovely day.
The car piece is great too, I like how you have collaged round it, and the words, very appropriate.
Best of luck with all the hospital things, I'll be thinking of you both.

I'm glad the medical process is going forward. I know y'all will be happy to have all this behind you, and I trust that will happen without complications.

Best of luck to you both with the surgeries.

Your buggy tea cards are delightful, Erika. Plus, I finally understand how 2nd on the 2nd works thanks to you! I thought you had to repost an old post, not just describe and link to it. Thank you.

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
