Have a spot of tea . . .

Hello my friends!
(yes I know ... another tea pot card ... lol)
I've been commissioned by the local 'Tea Shop'  (Marge's Place At Portage Lakes LLC) to create a few new cards for them and I thought I'd share one with you today.  You're probably thinking "what about that teapot card you made yesterday for the DT Call at The Shabby Tea Room ..."
Well, yes, I will also be offering that card to her as well,
as I'm sure she'll love the floral teapot on the front.
Especially since there's a teapot in her shop that is very similar.

Inside View

I must tell you I drew inspiration for this card from a card I spotted over on Sharon Johnson's Blog (No Time For Stamping) created by Sheri Holt.  You can see Sheri's card HERE.  I have to admit this is not the first time I've drawn inspiration from one of the design team members on Sharon's blog!
