Happy International Tea Day!

Did you know that today is International Tea Day?  I'm not a huge tea drinker, although I do love iced tea in the summer, but my daughter Ali LOVES hot tea and drinks a cup or two almost every day.  I made a Christmas card today for the Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop in honor of the tea drinkers in my life.  Although it isn't specifically a "tea" card, the cup reminds me of a tea cup :)





This is the first stamp that I've purchased from Stampingbella.  I've had my eye on their stamps for a long time now and was so happy to find this Maisy and Madeline have Some Tea at a Black Friday sale.  I used Copics to color, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Hand Lettered Holiday stamp set.  The paper is from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses 6X6 paper pad.  I finished the card by adding some gold sequins.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!
