A Cup of Tea . . .

warms the soul,
like a Good Friend!

Hello blogging friends!
When I saw the Monday's Greeting Card Challenge over on the Outlawz, I just couldn't wait to play along!  It's called a Sentimental Journey Recipe . . .

(No Image!)
Use two (2) DPs, Ribbons, Pearls and a Sentiment.

I had some scraps laying on my table from the beautiful Graphic45 'Secret Garden' paper pack and thought they'd work perfectly!  And, have you seen the new Graphic45 'Botanical Tea' paper & stamps?  GORGEOUS!!!!

I am so pleased with the outcome of this card!  And to think ... I've used up a variety of scraps too ... yippee!!
Would you like a peek at the inside?
Here ya go . . .

My girlfriend has a birthday coming up on the 27th.  She likes purple and she's a tea totter so this card will be perfect!!!

If you don't belong to the Outlawz site you should check it out ... and if you do, you should come join in the challenges ... something different for each day of the week!
