All of the details are here.

We have a fabulous sponsor, Peachy Keen Stamps!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive a gift certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps!

I used the January Peachy Keen set

Last week I used the fun chef and stacking coffee cups, this week I decided to go a different route:

I used that sweet tea cup and heart from the Peachy Keen Set...more about that in a smidge.

My papers are from the Pink Paislee Color Wash collection (along with the chippie too)...yup, that's another one of those furniture cork dealios.  Doesn't the ink take to it fabulously?

I was inspired by the current Freshly Made Sketches

I can definitely see using this design over and over again!

Be sure to check back at Curtain Call on March 14th for the Lead and Show Stoppers from this 
challenge...then, March 15th for the next challenge!

Speaking of tea, this has been my BFF for the past couple of days:

Yes, I originally gravitated to it based on its gorgeous packaging but I was in the market for a tea.  I've been fighting a virus for a smidge and was told to stop drinking coffee ← gasp and to stay away from acidic foods {great, there goes my breakfast/lunch parfaits with strawberries & pineapple}.  To say that I've been grumpy is partially correct.  I'm thankful that it wasn't something more serious but I am a girl that likes consistency in her everyday life.  A big shout out to Darin and the boy for putting up with me.


  1. I love this sketch. Thank you for introducing me to it. The tone on tone is very nice!

  2. I just love the stamped images on cork! FAB!

  3. Oh man...I hope that you start feeling better. No fun at all. Love the gradient look of the hello.

  4. Sorry you haven't been feeling well :( I loveeeeeeee your card!!!! Loving the colors on the 'hello' and love love love the cork bit!!!!!!

  5. Great sketch and card! Love that stamp set...super cute. Sorry about the no coffee, I know how you feel. That tea box looks pretty though...hope you feel better soon!

  6. Boo! Feel better soon! Love all the ombré on your card and that awesome sketch!

  7. First of all, LOVE that card - SO pretty! And I love it when you use those cork dealios! Why can I never remember to pick some up?!!
    You poor thing - virus = no fun :( Especially when it takes you away from the things you love and the routine (I like consistency too!). Glad your boys are looking after you (as they should ;) !!). Get better soon!

  8. Gorgeous papers and card. Excellent job with the sketch. Hope you are feeling better and not having coffee withdrawal. See you VERY soon.

  9. Love, love, love the card, Amy! That is one of my favourite paper pads and I love that you combined it with cork. Oh, boy, does that tea ever sound delicious!!

  10. Yay! A card that features tea! :D
    You rock all the caffeine-themed stamps, girlie! :)

  11. hope you are feeling better soon!!
    love the way you inked the sentiment :)

  12. Beautiful card; yet more evidence of your flair for transforming simple (like the cork dealios) into stunning! Hope you're feeling better soon! If anyone embraces routine, it's me, so I totally understand how having yours disrupted throws you off! Hope your boys are spoiling and pampering you! Feel better soon!!

  13. LOVE this!! Such a great idea to stamp on the cork!!!!

  14. Your card is so soft and pretty!

    The tea sounds good. The tin is gorgeous! I'm sorry you've not been 100% and pray your coffee sacrifice pays off with full healing.

  15. I was in their shop in Soho last May, just before hitting up the phenomenal Purl Soho for some fabric. I LOVE their Paris tea. Bought a gorgeous tin of Mother's Day tea and a Wedding Tea while I was there, along with their signature SOHO tea, which is coconut and chocolate. Their shop is a delight, just like the eye popping tins. Love your peach card so much. xo
