Close to My Heart - Sweet + Happy



So the last week or so, I've been doing a bit of organizing/spring cleaning.  It's something that I should do more often but I'm just glad that I'm on track with the areas I wanted to concentrate on.  In the process, not surprisingly, I've come across some crafty stuff that needed some love.  

Today's card features the Close to My Heart • Stamp of the Month • Tea-rrific along with Basic Grey's Paper Cottage:


Patterns ❤︎ Colors ❤︎ Caffeine

It makes my heart happy!  What's old is new...I still have quite a bit of the Paper Cottage collection and went to town with it.  Doesn't it team up nicely with the Tea-rrific set?  I paper pieced that bloom on the tea cup and colored the cup with my Zig - Haze Blue.

I used the 'sweet' tag as a tea bag and added some white twine.


Here's the interior of the card:


Tea-rrific is the March Stamp of the Month.  Get yours today!  Spend $50 and the set is $5!  I'm having a CTMH on-line party!


My card was inspired by Sunday Stamps:
