You're My Cup Of Tea

Hi Everyone
Thank goodness it is Friday.  I am suffering with a cold at the moment so looking forward to my weekend off.  I then have another week at work before me and hubby go to Budapest for a few days.  So looking forward to a change of scenery.

Today I thought I would share a card using a stamp set from Little Claire.

I got the stamp set several months ago but had never used it.  With Valentines Day coming up I thought it would make a more manly valentine card.  I stamped the teapots image onto some white card and distressed with some distress ink before adding some stitching around the outside.  This was matted onto some brown card.  The background was done by stamping the sentiment randomly and then adding distress ink.  Some ribbon and a button heart along the bottom of the image finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really do appreciate all your lovely comments and your support.

Que bonita tarjeta, se ve elegante y se antoja una rica taza con café¡ Gran idea usar el sentimiento para hacer el fondo de la tarjeta y la falsa costura le da su toque de elegancia¡

Gracias por participar con nosotras en CORROSIVE CHALLENGE

That beautiful card, looks elegant and it seems that it is a rich cup with coffee¡ Great idea to use the feeling to make the background of the card and the false seam gives it its touch of elegance¡
