On the last day in town I was determined to do something without the herd of Y chromosomes, so I snuck off to the Russian Tea room for lunch. It was great, because aside from two extremely rich and somewhat drunk older ladies, the place was completely empty.
I couldn't pass up tea in the tea room, so I ordered something I've never had before - white peony tea. When it came, it was in a glass teacup, like those crazy Russians do :) and it had dark cherries at the bottom of the cup.
It was incredible. I wish I had thought to ask them what brand it was.
I guess they're not the only ones with white peony tea though, because imagine my surprise when it showed up in our Tea Shoppe set in the mini catalog!
I made this card with that set for the Leadership art contest. I didn't win. :( But I had so much fun making it!
I actually sprayed the stamp itself with Blushing Bride Smooch and then stamped it before it dried. So in the second picture you can see how shimmery it is.
Blushing Bride pleated ribbon, the striped embossing folder.
What a fun set. I saw an UBER cute tea gift set with this set that we are going to make at my February stamp class if you want to come!
Now speaking of pink - one of the most hilarious things in this AWESOME book I'm reading (Recommended in Carrie Cudney's Why Women Buy class) is the statement that "pink is not a strategy" in marketing.
She says that male ad executives view pink as "female catnip" and think that if they turn a product pink, that that is a new gender based marketing strategy. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Oh I love this book.
There are actually two books, so here they are again - one didn't show up in the reader version of my feed, so here is the one I'm reading now:
And here is the other one Carrie referenced - Marketing to Women.
Hope you're having a great week! :)
