Always Time for Tea

Ya know, I love getting new stamps :)  And I love tea.  So getting new tea stamps is even better :D  I couldn't resist doing another card with A Nice Cuppa, and I kinda think it's going to live on my craft table for a while.

Ya gotta love that stack of teacups!  I got my color combo today from ColourQ:

And the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

I kinda did a mirror image for my card because I liked the teacup stack on the right, but it looked out of balance with the short piece up top on the right as well.  And then I needed something Pool Party near the bottom of the card, so I added a few Candy Dots; I don't usually do the "scatter" effect but I kinda like it on here.  The wee heart at the top and the tiny tag hanging off the bottom teacup are both popped up with pieces of Dimensionals.

Anyway, that's it for me today, peeps!  Have a fantastic day...Imma start mine with a nice cuppa tea :)

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  A Nice Cuppa
Ink:  Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Thick Whisper White, Have a Cuppa & Love Blossoms DSP stacks
Accessories:  corner rounder punch, linen thread, Subtles Candy Dots, Dimensionals

LOVE the colors and the whole thing, really. IT'S YOU!!! Did you ever think you would be so enamored of tea? Seems like you knew someone somewhere that did a stint in England and came back with an addiction to tea -- maybe someone you worked with in Okinawa. I remember you telling me that story, how he had a special pot he'd bought over there that he needed to replace and was having issues finding something suitable. But now YOU are the one who is in love with tea. Must be something about being stationed in England. That WAS a neat place to be -- out in the country.

FOG today here. Was amazed at how thick it was. Nothing compares with the Central Valley of California, but for Texas, it was thick. Hope you are having a great day.

Awesome card! I love the way you've used the colors and created the whole tea theme! Thanks so much for playing along with us at colourQ and Freshly Made Sketches!
