Tea For Two…

A very happy Friday to ALL!  I hope your week has been good and your weekend is going to be even better!  *smiles*

I made this card a while back and was getting ready to mail it out when it happened to dawn on me that I never posted it.  I hope you like it.

I have this thing sometimes about everything going in the same direction.  In the Tea Shoppe stamp set all the cups are going in the same direction…..I wanted a cup with the handle on the opposite side.  Remember the A la Carte ‘Tiny Teacup’ stamp from last years IB&C?  It came in handy here.  *smiles*

I had some scrap pieces of designer paper on hand that ‘Always Artichoke’ ink just happened to go perfect with, then added a couple splashes of ‘Pretty In Pink’.

Take a closer look at the flowers…

I stamped them twice, snipping out one set and popped them up with a glue dot for some added dimension.  I did the same thing adding just a part of this flower to the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, as ALWAYS, I’m so tickled to have you visit!  I’m hoping for time to play with all the new toys over the weekend……we’ll see.  Take care and stay cool!  We have had several record breaking days lately in this neck of the woods.

Love this shabby chic look! ... beautiful! I completely understand about your teacup handles. Hope you get some crafting time to explore your new goodies!

This is so pretty! I love all the little details with the cut out flowers and how you layered the butterfly! Great idea to use the teacup with the handle on the opposite site, definitely gives balance to the arrangement! Just beautiful! Hope you have a great stamping weekend! I'm going to try to get some stamping in this weekend myself! Stay cool!
