Happy Mother's Day

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Liz Williams our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges. 

In honor of “Hot Tea Month,” use a teapot or teacup on your card or use a “tea stain” technique if you like.

As you can see I have created a Mother's Day card for the challenge today. I know Mother's Day is a fair way away still, however while I was at the craft show in November, I picked up a tea themed stamp set from Close to My Heart and one of the cups has the "Happy Mother's Day on the cup. I always need a few Mother's Day cards  in my stash so it was a good excuse to use it.

I have created a "pull card" using the Pop it Ups Circle Spiral Pull Card die set which has now been discontinued. 

I colored the cup to match the teapot and cups in the designer paper. You probably can't see in the photo, but I also added some shimmer to the cup using the Tonic Studios Shimmer Pen.

When you "pull" the card open it reveals a sentiment. I have added another blank circle which can be used to handwrite a personal message.

Your design paper is beautiful, and love how you brought out the dogwoods to accent your card. A wonderful card and "spot on" for our tea theme with this perfect pun.

Sweet Mother's Day card. I love the way it closes, Frances. The bg dp is wonderful with the flowers in the cup.

So very pretty -- a lovely Mother's Day card. Your DP is beautiful! Sorry for the late comment. I had very little computer time yesterday.
