You’re My Cup of Tea!


Hello Friends,  What a glorious week we have had weather wise for Spring Break!  It has been simply Amazing…the weather and the time off!  Everyday, hubby and I have done something out of the ordinary and special so it’s made for a great week!  It all started last weekend when we went down to Naples for a couple of days.  My good friend and fellow DT member at STB- Barbara Campbell and her hubby spend their winters here in Florida, and Barb (my Birthday sister) and I make it a yearly tradition to see one another.  This year we ended are fabulous day of breakfast and craft shopping with a fantastic dinner, where we included our Hubbies too!  We all hit it off so well and had a terrific time!  Barb’s hubby Tom is as sweet as he can be, just like her!  Can’t wait till next year when we get to do it again. Here is a pic of all of us together.

Now a bit about my card! Over at Just Us Girls it’s Photo Week and that is where the inspiration for my card came to be.  The stamps are all from Verve except for the script background.  I found a piece of that butterfly paper and thought it worked out well. I fussy cut my tea pot, then tried to cut out a butterfly to put on the tea pot, but it just didn’t look right, so I went with a flower instead.

I am also going to be linking up my card over at the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The have over 60 sponsors! Yes I said 60+!  BTW you are allowed to link up TEA and Hot Cocoa cards too! You have to go and check it out!

Thanks for coming by and checkin on me!  I am off to Pre-season B-Ball game this afternoon.  Better go lather up in sun screen! HUGS! Nanc’
