TEA-RRIFFIC CARDS

aging hippy chic. I like them all, and you would think as a cat lover that I would like the cat the best, but that bunny in the tea cup is adorable. I would be thrilled to own any of those cute cards.

I am inspired to do a great job on some cards in the near future.

I realize you dont need a blow by blow of my card making for this swap, but it also moves the swap up into the top of the OPEN swap forum.

So my blow by blow is that I worked on these and I am pretty close to done. They need to marinate for a few days, and I will add the last few touches.

Since it has been colder I have been drinking many many cups of tea. mainly herbal because I get my caffeine from coffee. But does anyone else sometimes save the tea tags and sometimes the wrappers? I do. sometimes they are really cool. I used some tea tags on my cards, which are not done yet, but might be today.

Mouseit
11-28-2019, 04:25 PM
Id like to play please....

Bluevioletz
11-28-2019, 05:06 PM
Yay, welcome Mouseit, happy to see you joining the party!

CastleQueen5, I am completely fascinated by drinking tea but somehow have not developed the tradition in my day to day to drink it like I do with coffee every morning. It's like I have amnesia in the afternoon which would be the perfect time for a cup. If I did, I would definitely want to save some of the tags. I've seen some lovely atcs appear in the gallery with the tags and feel they always have an extra fun touch with them.

I need to add words to a couple and then I will upload them here and get them in the mail.... Whoohoo a bit excited!!!

Bluevioletz
12-03-2019, 08:47 AM
that sounds like so much fun Mouseit, wish I was there with you! I've been spending a good amount of time looking at tea and coffee stamps, especially during black friday to see what designs are out there. And there were lots of good ones. They've been added to my xmas wishlist. Those would be great stocking stuffers, he he. Can't wait to see your set.
