It took me a long time to learn to like hot tea.
I like the ceremony of it. But, tea is not for impatient people. There is a process to making a good cup and it shouldn’t be rushed. However, I am not a patient person. I’m especially not patient in the morning when I need a caffeine jolt! Given the everyday choice I will choose a cup of hot coffee over a cup of tea, but I do love hot spiced tea at Christmas, cold almond tea from The Cottage, and a sweet hot toddy when I have a bad cold. But, on a cold day when the house is quiet and I want to be cozy and read a good book, I’ll take the time to make a good cup of tea!
Valentine’s Day is Tuesday and this is the perfect card for a kindred spirit!
This week’s Cupcake Inspirations Challenge is sponsored by STAMPlorations and they are generously providing a $15 gift certificate to our randomly chosen winner. STAMPlorations also hosts numerous monthly challenges on their blog so be sure to hop over and see what’s going on there too!
I flipped the image and added a sentiment that I designed in Photoshop Elements using the Jury Duty font.
I colored the images with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers on Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock and then cut out some of the edges of the leaves with a craft knife to pop them up for a little added dimension.
The black Club Scrap cardstock underneath gives it a nice shadow!
Check out what the rest of the design team created here (the STAMPlorations design team joined us this week as well!), then go make a card and enter the challenge! Can’t wait to see what you create!
Do more of what makes you happy!
