Sending Hugs in a Tea Cup!


Just a quick post tonight, as my battery on me laptop is about to run out, and I'm too lazy to leave the bed {complete with snoring husband} and get my charger! I've been browsing through my followers blogs - something that I always mean to do but rarely get the time. For some reason it wouldn't let me click on some of them, it would do the bottom right on each set, but then none until I got on the tip row. Very strange indeed. There were a lot I missed, but I'll have another shot at it soon.

Onto another card I made at the glitter pot, using one of my all time favourite collections from docrafts - Henbury Lane. And yes, the tea cups get another outing, this time in decoupage format, simply because they are so darn cute {in the words of Jonny Depp as Willy Wonka} The papers are from the same decoupage set too, but the greeting stamp is from one of the Hawthorn and Bramble stamp sets.

I've yet again pulled out one of my stalwart crafting techniques - paper pricking around the edge of paper or cardstock - never fails to bring interest to a card...oh, and a little freehand lines too - yum! Put a cake on there to go with the tea, and I'd be all set!

Hope you likee alotee!

Love, Clare x

Hi Clare. First of all thank you for the kind comments you left on my blog :-) Wow! I love this card!! I adore these teacups and have the wooden stamp. They are not easy to colour, but worth it for the finished results. bfn xx Jenny xx

Such a beautiful card, Clare. I'm a big fan of paper piercing too, and I love your doodled borders. Those Henbury Lane papers are wonderful - I love 'em!
