Christmas Tea Party Invitations

I will be hosting the Christmas Tea Party again this year. It will be my second year. I had such a great time last year that I decided to do it again this year besides I have all the "stuff" now. Had to order some tiered serving dishes to match my china last year, actually, I asked for them for my birthday last year and my family graciously complied. Had to get a few other little odds and ends like little tiny tea spoons with tea pots on the ends of the handles. God forbid if we had a tea party without those, lol. Anyway, here is my invitation to the tea party. I have room for 12, no let me re-phrase that, I have place settings for 12, so I made 12 invitations. We will all be squeased around a table made for eight, oh well. No one seemed to mind last year so we will run with it. The invitations turned out so adorable. I used the Ms. Holiday Cheer (D1374) stamp set from CTMH and just plain ol' white cardstock. The fur around her dress and the snow on "the mantle" were done with liquid applique and a heat tool. The colors were Holiday red and New England Ivy with a little yellow thrown in for hair color and some peach for facial/hand color. The holly berries are red sticles and I threw some red glitter on the "snow" before I heated it. Hope you enjoy it, it was fun putting it together and I was really pleased with the outcome. Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
