Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers, August 2018, Coffee/Tea

Hey there my coffee and tea loving friends!  We have a blog hop this month just for you!  I have to be honest once again; I am not really a coffee or tea drinker.  I do love the smell of coffee, but that's about it.  I may have an occasional cup of tea, like once a year, but again, that's about it.  I guess I'm kinda weird, huh?  But I do enjoy a good cup of hot cocoa or hot apple cider.  These are my go to's when it starts to get chilly.  Here is the inspirational cue for us this month:

Check out my card right here:


I really, really love how this card turned out.  I used an Itty Bitty Stamp Set, Our Talks.  Paired it with some Pink Paislee paper, twine, half of a canvas doily I inked up, inked die cut leaves, and a metal spoon I got at the Great Lakes Scrapbook Mega Meet a year ago.

Here is the hop order:

  3. This stamp in on my wish list, Dawn and I love how you used it. I've been a tea drinker as a child. My grandmother used to make me tea with milk and sugar and I still drink it that way. Your card captures my loving feelings for tea. Just beautiful!

  13. Love your card...very soft and tea worthy! Beautiful spoon and I believe the tea cup looks like my grandmothers antique tea set she bought in Japan. I was fortunate enough to inherit the beautiful set. Thank you for the memories! Blessings!
