I Guess I'm Just On a Tea Kick This Week! {SSD #88}

Well, it's time for the 88th sketch from Skipping Stones Design! We, once again, have a fabulous sketch this week and some really fun cards to share with you! And, as my title suggests, (or blatantly states...something like that...HA!), I am apparently on a tea kick this week! My card yesterday featured the Queen of Tea and Cake and today's card is Good To the Last Drop!

Good To the Last drop


Yup! I pulled out the ALWAYS super fun Funny Coffee Vol. 1 set. Yes, I'm aware it is supposed to be coffee, but I always see tea because we don't drink coffee in our house. HA!

I paper pieced the cup with some cute Crate Paper patterns and added a GORGEOUS silk May Arts ribbon to the card.

Wanna know something kinda funny? I really HATE coffee rings on counter tops. No. Seriously. They drive me insane. If I see one at work I HAVE to clean it up. It's just one of my many issues, but seriously, they make me crazy. Just say'n. Why is that funny? Well, I kinda love the coffee ring stamp in this set and I used it a lot! HA! Apparently when it is ink it just doesn't bother me that much!
