Cup of Tea

I seem to have a bit of a backlog of cards needed right now! I'm still getting caught up on Thank You cards for baby Erica and then there are a bunch of family birthdays as well as Mothers' Day around the corner.

I found a great sketch over at Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge. As well, Heart 2 Heart and There She Goes have a challenge this week to use flowers on a project. And lastly, Scrapbookers Paradise's challenge is a card for a friend.

For my cards I clear embossed a card background with a CTMH floral stamp as a resist and sponged on distress ink. I then layered Spellbinders die cuts in the center and embossed a CTMH tea cup stamp (love this cute stamp!). I added a few stickles to the steam and on one card embossed a silver spoon CTMH stamp on black cardstock and on the other added a flower cut at 3" from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

What friend wouldn't want to receive this?!!

Thanks for joining me. Hope the April showers are almost over and looking forward to May flowers!
