I am a tea drinker. Which is funny, because I spent the first couple of decades of my life as a coffee-lover. My dad would share his coffee with me from my toddler-hood, and by high school, I was a confirmed java-fiend. (Completely debunks the whole coffee stunts your growth myth, by the way.) But nowadays, apart from the odd Starbucks coffee-based beverage, it's all tea, all the time.
Emily, knowing this, gave me a perfect stamp set for Christmas. To thank her, I sent her a card made with it:
When I was designing this card in my mind (you know, in the middle of the night, half-asleep?), I was picturing paper-piecing the teapot and cup. Well, no, not if they're solid stamps. So instead, I "kissed" them with my Hero Arts envelope background. I was really pleased that the white ink worked over the darker blue; I wasn't sure it would. And, it just so happens that Lily Pad Cards is currently running a Kissing Challenge, so of course I'm going to link up to it. And I can never resist a Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge!
