A Tea-rrific Teaser

Everyone close to me knows I drink my morning teas in a very large cup!  I learned to drink milk in my tea the English way when I was nine years old at a mother-daughter missions banquet at church. If it wouldn't keep me awake, I'd probably be drinking it all through the day! My tea time came in handy when my hubby and I had a friend from England's Lake District who would visit nearly every year. We both drank tea with milk! One of my friends has a son working in Great Britain so when she went to visit she brought me three tins of English tea. She deserves to have the card I made today! She's a tea-rrific friend!

When I saw today's challenge at Try It On Tuesday, Time for Tea, I knew I needed to share this card which introduces a new stamp set that becomes available tomorrow as the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month. I invite you to come back and see my four cards that are part of the blog hop that starts late Wednesday evening.

 I grabbed some retired papers (CTMH Zoe) and Petaloo flowers to make this card. The blue Glacier paper was embossed with CTMH Dots and lined on each side with white glitter paper. The doily has a 2.25" circle of Glacier colored hounds tooth plaid. I stamped the cup and the sentiment with Slate then sponged the edges of the cup with Sorbet after it was cut out. One of my favorite finishing touches is the shiny Blush Shimmer Ribbon. The butterfly and flowers are in memory of the times I've had tea on my patio by the garden!

Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll come back Wednesday night or Thursday morning to enjoy everyone's cards using this Tea-rrific stamp set. May God bless your crafting and the recipients of your lovely work!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
