Merry Monday #188 - Hot Bevvies

Hello friends.  Playing along with the Merry Monday challenge today, and the focus is on your favorite hot beverage.  I am so NOT a coffee drinker (I agree with Laura Bassen...it tastes like hot dirt!!), but I do like a nice cup of hot tea during the winter months!  So I dug out my Fancy Tea Cup die (PTI) and cut out 3 tea cups and then "smooshed" them with PTI's newest ink color...Mint Julep.  Take a look:




No sunlight today, so just imagine this card a bit brighter!  After smooshing the tea cups I embossed the edges with a little bit of gold to give the impression of fancy and delicate cups.  I stamped the leaf and flower from PTI's Cuppa Love.  The little tags are from Tiny Tags (also PTI), and I used DSP from Penny Black.  The background is stamped with Crumb Cake ink and a stamp from Season's Greetings (again PTI).

 
 
Check out all the great cards from the DT and players, and then play along!  You can find all the info you need right HERE.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)

  3. LOVE those teacups, Marcia!! I am with you on the whole coffee thing...and just think of all the money we save to spend on stamps!! Tonight I took my granddaughter to "Critter Cabana", she loves holding all the little puppies! tonight she told me I really needed to buy this one puppy, it was only $1200!! I said, I know this is the cutest thing EVER! But just imagine all the stamps I could buy with $1200!!! She laughed! Thanks for playing along at Merry Monday!
