Tea for Two

I love the new stamp set Tea Shopppe in the Occasions Mini catalog.
This is one of the cards we did at my New Year's Day stamp camp. I cased it from SC from Running with Scissors.
Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper from the OMC, Soft Suede, Blushing Bride CS
Where the soft suede DSP is we used sticky strip on the sides and made it into a little pocket to hold the tea bag.
Big Shot: We used the Sizzlit Doily die and trimmed it down to a smaller scallop.
Love the doily it is very versatile! You can make different size s with it.
The Twinings tea bags in yellow (I have no idea what kind of tea it is,) they just matched perfectly to the colors in the DSP.LOL

I was born and raised in the country and our porch was a place where our family gathered in chairs like these. We talked about everything and some of my fondest memories are on that porch. My Mom , Mema and I used to drink tea and talk for hours.
Grant you we are from the south and it was SWEET ICE TEA, but what the Whoo!
So when this stamp set first came out I was really drawn to it.
I like using it for I miss you cards too. The two empty seats and a little I miss you tag! Too cute!!
