A Warm Cup of Tea?

Hello!! Let's hope this day gets better than it started out. I woke up with a slight sore throat. I am hoping it doesn't get any worse than it is. I had the hubby home sick at the beginning of the week and I don't want to get what he had.

Let's get on to a happier note "crafting". I made this card up last night after two attempts at other projects that didn't go so well. After putting them away and rethinking what I was doing realized that I didn't follow directions to well. My husband always tells me to read the instructions, but do you think I would listen. Not usually :). I guess I should start.

I really like how it turned out. I paper pieced the teapot and also did some paper piercing on the bottom. I kept it simple because I just thought they way things were going that is the way I should go.

Stamps- PTI Tea for Two
Ink-Momento Black
Paper- PTI Stamper's Select White, New Leaf, Tea Leaf PP
Accessories- Ornare piercing template, fiskars corner punch, PTI New Leaf Vintage Button, Crocheted Flower, Lemon Tart Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good day.

this is awesome. I love the paper piercing. I hope you are feeling better soon.
You are gonna have to show me how to finish off the flower. I got the first row done but can't figure out the second.
