Happy 4th of July to all my American friends, I hope that you had a fabulous holiday weekend.

What a great sketch this week for Mojo Monday :) I had such fun making this card, it is for a friend who I have not seen in awhile. I think I will send her this as a reminder it is time we get together.

I knew I wanted to do something TEA themed and I love how it turned out. I added little bits of sparkle all over, it is a shame it does not really show up in the photo.

I stamped the tea cup three times then cut out the parts to give it dimension, I did the same with the tea bags. I did emboss the tea bags as well to give them gloss. I used my Spica glitter markers for the rim of the cup as well as the small flower in the centre and the heart tag at the end of the tea bag string. I finished with a couple of little purple gems.

Supplies: Cream and Plum cardstock, Designer Paper- Hot off the Press, TPC Studio-Coffee Cafe, Kaiser Craft gems.



  1. Very cool card LilSis.
