High Tea pictures and Sail Away card

I haven't been spending as much time making cards the past couple of days.  I've been preparing for a "High Tea" I was holding for three of my good friends.  Today Liz, Tammy and Patt came over and the four of us had a great afternoon ... lots of fun, laughs, and of course, lots of delicious food!  The four of us all worked together years ago and we've kept in touch.  Such great friends!
Here's a couple of pictures of the food I made for our High Tea:

Here are the savory:

Sesame Chicken Croissants with Red Pepper Jelly

Sun-dried Tomato Pesto Crostini with Herb Cream Cheese

Egg & Chive sandwiches

Here are the sweets:

Lower:  Orange Scones (served with Devon Cream and Blackberry Jelly), Lemon Loaf

Upper:  Brownie with Hazelnut Ganache, Toasted Coconut Cake, Strawberry Mousse Shortbread Tartlettes


Today's CAS (clean & simple) Challenge (CAS135) at SCS is a sketch by Miss Boo.  This was a quick and easy card - so much fun! 
"Sail Away"

Stamps:  Sail Away, Just Believe (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White, Early Espresso (SU!); Soft Garden Plaid (Chatterbox)
Ink:  Early Espresso
Accessories & Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig

I stamped the sail boat in Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  I mounted pieces of the Soft Garden Plaid DP on the bottom and top of the sailboat image.  I mounted the main image onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.  The whole main image was then mounted onto Whisper White cardstock and the sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink.
