Tea Time!

Being the tea lover that I am, nothing makes me happier than making a card with a "tea" theme! Everything we see out there has coffee, java, latte, etc., but it's rare that you find a  great tea stamp or die!  I finally purchased the Spellbinder "Nested Tea Cups" die, and couldn't wait to use it!

The challenge inspiration photo at The Shabby Tea Room this week made me squeal!
"High Tea"

I only recently discovered this blog, and I have to tell ya,
it's perfect for those of us who prefer our tea!

So, after getting my inspiration from this and sitting down with a nice hot cuppa chai tea,
I made this little card.

The second requirement was to use a doily....
well, don't we always? 

The little swirl of steam holding the sentiment is a coated wire paper clip.

Thanks for looking. Please leave a comment!

Off for my evening cup of hot tea and a long warm bubble bath...

I like your new Spellbinders (haven't seen that one yet!)! And that was so clever to bend the paperclip into a puff of steam!!! :)

Thank you so much for sharing your GREAT card!
