Tea? YES Please!

The theme this week at Shopping Our Stash is coffee/tea. 
I LOVE my chai tea every morning - I love to get up before everyone 
else and enjoy a big cuppa chai - it's the perfect way to start the day, 
actually it's the perfect way to start every day. I'm enjoying a big
cuppa right now. :)

make a coffee/tea themed card or project!

I love this sentiment from Verve Stamps! 
Some days there's nothing as calming or comforting 
as a big cuppa chai. This was one of those weeks.

I colored the cup with watercolor pencil crayons, cut it out and used some
pieces of foam sheet to add it to the card base. 
I used the sentiment to help ground the image - as if it's the table the cup is
sitting on.

Very clean and very simple.

Happy Stampin'

Hello Susan: Besides your gorgeous CAS card, that sentiment is just amazing, love it, totally true, my ritual every day is to have a nice mug of freshly brewed coffee every morning, no matter what I have to do afterwards, one cup is what I need before I can deal with whatever the day will throw at me.
Do not talk to me, do not turn bright lights early in the morning, I'm talking 4am.....before I have that very important first cup.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful card with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we hope you play again next time.

Thank you Maria :) I had a 4:30 morning today which means not only is there a very important first cup but there's also that 'not quite there yet' second cup!
