Just My Cup of Tea

Happy Tuesday dear stamping friends!

My card today combines the Split Coast Teapot Tuesday and Color challenges and I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout.

The teaparty this week is all about friends and we're off to London (Ohio, that is) to bring some cheer as well as Happy Birthday Wishes to Brenda.

Today's colors are chocolate, cherry and crumb cake and I thought this Basic Grey Bittersweet paper pad combined them all rather nicely as a background.

The Little Shoppers are from Art Impressions, the sentiment and teacup are from Waltzingmouse.

I wish all those in the US a very Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels if you are venturing out over the river and through the woods!

What a sweet vintage image! We will be some of those people traveling over the river and through the woods (7 hour drive)...it will be really different after losing mom last month...seems like she should be there just like before. Hope your healing process is going well...have a blessed turkey day!
