Tea Time

Yikes.... finally had time to make a card AND post!! Busy little bee with family, friends, work, life!!! Thought I was going into a little withdrawal there for a minute...  wondering if I was going to start with fine tremors in my hands, LOL!! Speaking of fine tremors in your hands.... I am a major coffee drinker but, I make it so strong that several years ago my DH stopped coffee and started on green tea... he was having fine tremors in his hands, oops!! I do love all things tea/coffee related though {cups, pots, fine linens... you know what I mean!!} and fell in love with Waltzingmouse Stamps tea stamps {along with a few others!!}

I digress.... card is for WMS's sketch challenge and the CR84FN challenge to use light pink, medium green, and a neutral {hope kraft is good} and uses WMS Afternoon Tea Sentiments-- see there really WAS a reason my mind was on the tea thing!!


Used some gorgeous Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden dp with SU crumbcake. Added some stitching on the outer sides of the square panels. An image from WMS Very Vintage Labels 10 was stamped on a Labels 10 nestie. Teacup from WMS Afternoon Tea Sentiments stamped on some of the PP dp and sentiment stamped in crumbcake and heat embossed with clear. Sponged crumbcake ink onto a PP Artisan Element and layered. Added pink ribbon, lace, buttons tied with kraft twine. Fun card!!

The colors....



The sketch....















Thanks for stopping by.. leave a comment if you do.. love to hear from you!!

Between busy and blogger has "not recognized" me lately {I mean how frustrating is it when you log in 10 times and still can't post a comment!!}, I'm a little behind in visiting/commenting but, my plan is to have some time this weekend to get a little sun, do some stampin, and some visiting!! Sounds wonderful, huh!!??

Love you take on the sketch, Vicki. Wonderful soft feel to the card and a great bow. I kicked coffee 16 years ago and only have a bit of "leaded" when I reeeeeally need it. Decaf all the way for me 99% of the time. Love green tea too.

Ohh love how you layered that tea cup with the label! So pretty and delicate, with your beautiful papers and lovely embellishing. Makes me want to have a tea party tomorrow morning! Great job with the sketch, as always, Vickie!
