Put the Kettle On

Today I have another CAS card for another challenge - this one is for this weeks Cas-ology challenge
And here's the card I created -  my drink of choice was tea!
I just love this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt.  I stamped the quote on Fine Linen card stock with Coffee Archival Ink then cut it with a Wonky Rectangle Nestability.  The sentiment is a  Waltzingmouse stamp from the set called Afternoon Tea Sentiments.  The tea tag stamped with the sentiment and the tea kettle that I stamped on the card base are from the WMS set Afternoon Tea.  I layered the sentiment over the kettle with foam tape.

We've had a frigid day here today in New England but we didn't get the 5" of snow predicted - I woke up to just a dusting - I guess the storm went out to sea.  But another storm is expected Friday - so we'll see how much, if any, that will bring to our weird winter!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Afternoon Tea, Afternoon Tea Sentiments
Paper:  Fair Linen - PTI
Ink:  Archival Ink - Coffee
Accessories:  Wonky Rectangle Nestabilities, foam tape.

I think that's true of everyone, not just women - it's such a great sentiment! Love that you only showed part of your teapot behind it - very clever! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week,
