You're My Cup of Tea

WMS

I have only played along with the weekly Waltzing Mouse sketches once so thought I would give it another try as I liked this week's sketch.

My MFT Always Time for Tea set was still sitting out on my desk (thanks again Vickie!!), so I decided to use it as the tea pot worked wonderfully with this sketch.

The papers are retired Stampin' Up DSPs, and since I was thinking of "High Tea" at the Empress Hotel in Victoria while making this card, out came my Martha Stewart doily punch.

The Empress Hotel is such a beautiful, historical landmark!  If you are ever in Victoria, British Columbia it is well worth shelling out the big bucks just to be able to walk through the ornate lobby and enjoy High Tea in the gorgeous tea room.  Mind you, I'm pretty sure my black and pink tea pot would not make the tea room cut as it is a bit out there for High Tea LOL!

I'm a day behind due to the short week as I keep thinking it's yesterday!  Lots to get done so gotta run.  Wishing you a great day!

 

What's In It?
Stamps: Time for Tea (My Favorite Things) 
Paper: Stampin' Up DSP, Black 
Ink: Black 
Accessories: Doily Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Tea Pot Die (My Favorite Things), 5/8" White Satin Ribbon, Paper Rose (Recollections), Button, Twine, Glue Dot, Dimensionals

Marisa this is super cute. I love tea themed cards and yours is splendid. The paper pieced tea pot is adorable. Hey you did something other than a Christmas card!!! I think we will be seeing lots of Christmas in the next few weeks on each others blogs. Tis the Season!

ah, memories of the Empress. We went there on our Honeymoon...stayed a few days in Victoria then went up to the North part of the island to salmon fish :) Good time! That sweet little tea pot would do just fine at my house...I have a real funky tea pot by a local potter AND a shamrock one too from Tony :)
