tea cup Stampin Up card by Stampin Up and me

Good morning dear Stampers. It's a new day. I always love to start my day with a cozy and yummy cappuccino. The day just isn't the same without it.
Last night I created this card. I was inspired by the Paper Players ' Cup of Joy' Challenge # 116. LeAnne chose this beautiful theme. I kinda have a little crush on cards with tea and coffee cups. They never fail and they are the best to pass on to friends and family with a little hand written note.
Love it!

Don't you love these layers. My Stampin Up punches are such a big help.
 I created these layers in a snap.



I can't help myself :) but I just have to share this photo with you. It's our youngest daugther with her little cousin. I took it at the wedding last weekend in Lake Louise. I took about 700 photo's. Yip that's me.. I love taking photo's and this is just one of them.

Do you see that little strip of of Wisteria Wonder 3/8'' Ruffled Ribbon Stampin Up? I can't get enough of those flirty riffles. They are so beautiful. Stampin Up gives you 10 yards of this beautiful ribbon for the price of $13.50 (#122973. see page 152 of you SU catalogue)

I inked up my Stampin Up cup of tea image in the Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985 - $7.25) and Elegant Eggplant Classic ink. (#126969 - $7.25, see page 155 of your Stampin Up catalogue for more details.) These colours are so rich.
I loved combining them to the same colours of card stock.

Here is the Layout that I have been trying to use for this card. It's a real gem. I found it on (a new site for me|) Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge blog. This is Challenge #87. Jenn created this Challenge. Thanks Jenn and dear ladies for inspiring me. I love the sketch.


Well, that was it for today. I hope you enjoy my card.
Take time for the things you love!
Smiley Hugs, Pauline
