TEA A HUG IN A CUP {Create with TLC Progressive Challenge}

{DT Project for CREATE WITH TLC}

The amazing Paulette from {Create with TLC}has been hosting a fun Progressive Challenge celebrating World Cardmaking Day on 4 October, the past week.  I got to play with this gorgeous vintage image and sentiment from Create with TLC, and I am sure you all agree that TEA is definitely  A HUG IN A CUP.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to CREATE WITH TLC to see the beautiful cards that has been entered thus far in this progressive challenge. 

The folded embellishments have been created with paper squares.  The design paper is from BasicGrey and the buttons, bling and raffia is from my stash.  The image and sentiment has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks.


I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:

  37. This is gorgeous. I love the sweet vintage image and the sentiment is the tops. Tea really is a hug in a cup. I remember once, many years ago, when I was suffering from a broken heart. A friend came over and made me a cup of tea. Her comforting presence, along with the tea, surprisingly made me feel much better.
    Have a great day,
    Teresa
