Inspiration photo from the Shabby Tea Room

Hi...another new card this week, this card is inspired by Shabby Tea Room of using a tea theme with blue and green. I have seen alot of teapot cards among the crafting world. It's one of the hot theme to create on. But suprisingly, I haven't made one by myself!!! So, I looked up all my stamps and digi to find the tea theme elements.  It's always a fun to look for "pearls" over your treasure box.

This week, Stampin' Sister in Christ wants us to use something from your stash that you 'just had to have' cause you would use it everyday....but have forgotten about...

Actually, I am a kind of "tea-holic" person, need a cup of tea every morning. But I haven't made anything out of my favourite! I think the creation of this card just fit the theme of SSIC :=)





Heehee...I like the flower very much, because it was the wrapping paper of a pair of new shoes. I think the pattern is quite nice, so I keep it till now and turn it into a flower. The sentiment and the cup image was stamped on a piece of tracing paper and I tear it to create a more casual look. Hope you like it.

Thank you for stopping by :=)


I enter my card to the following challenges:
