A Get Well Spot of Tea


A fun home goods web site, The Huset Shop, from Sweden was hostess Anne's inspiration challenge for us today over on Split Coast. I chose this lovely tea cup as inspiration because I've been dying to try my new tea cup template from Waltzingmouse Stamps!I just printed out the template on white card stock, stamped the Big Blooms on the teacup and saucer pieces and assembled as instructed! How fun is this!!

I used Taylor's Friday Sketch for my coordinated get well card. The designer paper panels are WMS Digital Celtic Squares papers. The sentiment is cut with Labels Nine Nestabilities and the chrysanthemum is cut with Circles Nesties.
My project also counts for Sharon's No Time to Stamp Friday challenge - to make a female oriented card (or Mother's Day). I think a tea cup fits the bill!!

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mother's out there! My son is taking me out to dinner tomorrow -whoo hoo!!

Paper: white, Enchanted Evening - PTI , digital DP Celtic Squares - Waltzingmouse Stamps
