Tea Day Wreath

Hi friends!  It's International Tea Day and I'm back with another card for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop.   I usually drink coffee in the mornings, but my asthma has been acting up, so a nice cup of hot tea with honey was the perfect cough soother today. This morning's selection was a delicious cup of Murchie's Afternoon Blend  in the mug shown below.  Christy Tomlinson sold these a few years back and it's one of my all -time favorite mugs.  The other side of the mug says, "She has faith in the possibilities." Mmmmmm.... good.


Okay, on with today's card.  I was pretty limited in my supplies this morning as something shifted in the drawer where I store all of the ink pads I typically use and I think one of my distress ink tin lids flipped up and caught and I can't open the drawer!  Doh!  Luckily I already had this image from the Cup of Kindness digital set  printed.  I did still have antique linen (my go-to distress ink) on my desk, so I sponged it around the inner side of the stitched circle die, then colored the image with copics.  I added this to a silver doily behind to give the effect of a wreath.  A few pink and red pearls acccent the wreath and I finished off with a bit of ribbon, jingle bells and silver cording.



Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous International Tea Day!
