I haven't had much enthusiasm for anything but yesterday my friend Christine (calex on SCS) and I spent a wonderful day at Loll Thompson's house playing around with some techniques (the results from that will show up on future posts).
It sparked a desire to get into my craft room so this morning I checked recent challenges and realized I just had time to get a card done for Merry Monday. The challenge is perfect for right now as my Mum loved tea as much as I do and we must have shared thousands of cups together over the years. I also brought back many of the corrugated cup sleeves from the Tim Hortons coffee shop in the hospital to recycle in card-making.
So here's a cup of tea in honour of my wonderful Mum.
I trimmed the corrugated cup sleeve down to a rectangle and went over it lightly with gesso. I bordered it with red cs to match the ink I stamped the mug in. For the steam coming out of the tea, I used part of a Memory Box snowflake flourish.
My Mum loved to go out for English "high tea". Here's a photo of her from July with me and two of my three sisters when we went out for high tea:
I just wish my Mum would be here next Christmas so that I could send this card to her. Cheers, Mum - wherever you are now, I'm sure there are endless cups of tea.
