You're My Cup of Tea

Hi there!  I hope you are having a great weekend so far, we seem to keep getting more snow.  I am over it and ready for spring.  How about you?  After my morning workout, my friend and I went downtown to a store that sells loose tea.  I normally get mine at Teavana but find their prices to be on the high side for what you get.  This locally owned tea store, Gong Fu has just as many options and you get twice as much for your money.  Score!   That inspired me to pull out my cute new a la modes, You're My Cup of Tea.  Isn't she adorable?  I am entering her into the MFT guest designer contest.



Since I did not have room on the front I added the sweet sentiment to the inside of my card.  I like being able to dress up the inside a little with some dies and patterned paper, it gives it that little something extra special.




You can find the sketch along with more details on the MFT blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

Heather, she's beautiful! I love her! I hope you win! I'm going to CASE her! Teavanna still has good prices for us -- we live in the DC area, DH orders it online though. I wish we had a Gong Fu in the area -- we do have local stores but Teavanna is actually cheaper for us!
