Polly, Put the Kettle On

Hey y'all!  Wonder of wonders, I actually made a card today, my very first one since we moved to Germany.  I got up early this morning to do my workout, and by the time I finished that the hubs was already in the shower but Ryan wasn't up yet so I snatched a few minutes in my craft room and made this:

The teacup stamp set (A Nice Cuppa) is retired, but I had to use it (or one of its other tea-related friends) because of the Global Design Project theme challenge:

The inside of the card says "You are tea-riffic", but I chose a birthday sentiment for the front of the card to fit in the Retro Rubber Challenge:

The birthday sentiment is from Blossoms in Bloom, which is only six months old; it was just the first birthday sentiment that I came across that fit my card design.  A Nice Cuppa is nice and retro though, it's four years old.  I even dug up the matching Have a Cuppa DSP!

Aaaaaaand now I need to go make myself some tea.  Have a great day, peeps.

Supplies, all SU! (many retired)
Stamps:  A Nice Cuppa, Blossoms in Bloom
Ink:  Bermuda Bay
Paper:  Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Thick Whisper White, Have a Cuppa DSP Stack
Accessories:  Cups & Kettle dies, Dimensionals, glitter enamel dots

Goodness - moved to Germany! I hadn't seen your work around much lately and I guess that explains why. What a whirl! This is a lovely bright card that would cheer up any birthday. I like the die cut over the banner - very pretty layout. Thanks so much for joining us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.

This is wonderful! It took me a moment to realise that the paper had little teabags on it - so clever. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
