A Cup of Tea...

Good morning!

Jessica here with a couple of cards to share with you this morning that I made using one of my favorite SNSS stamp set illustrated by Diane Zechmen: Special Blend.  I was thinking about all those tea-lovers out there with both of my cards since I love that sweet tea image!

I stamped and clear embossed the images and sentiments on both of my cards and then using my waterbrush and Distress markers, did some watercoloring.  I was going for a country charm look so went with red, white, and kraft/linen colors along with my seam binding ribbon, doilies, and some sewing.  My card below is 3 3/4" x 5" since the tag was a bit small on the regular sized card.

I hope this post sees you keeping warm in the arctic wintry blast most of our country is experiencing right now!  Keep warm, have a cup of tea (or coffee) and do some stamping in your hibernation - at least that's my plan for the day!

Have a wonderful day!

I love your country charm cards Jessica~they make me feel warm and fuzzy inside! ;) The doilies, red gingham and tea colored touches blend perfectly.

Lean in close... There's just something special about sharing a cup of tea with a friend. Tea is civilized, it quiets our souls as we savor that first sip. A cup of tea between friends is the connection of hearts. I love a good cup of coffee, but... I remember vividly the times I've shared tea with friends.

Thank you for sharing. Cheers!
