My Cup of Tea – by Heidi Blankenship

Published by at 8 00 am under Altenew,General Purpose Cards,Graphic 45

Heidi used the beautiful Vintage Teacup set by Altenew today to create her lovely card. Of all the coffee/tea sets available on the market today, this classic/vintage style cup is my all time favorite. I have cabinets full of this type of cup and saucer and they bring me such joy! Each time I see one I visualize all the lovely table settings from holidays of years gone by and all of our older relatives (now passed on) who drank their coffee from nothing but these lovely cups.

Isn’t this pretty! Totally {{{LOVE}}} it!!!

And check out the ribbon closely. Heidi used the variegated 1/4″ silk – it’s a lovely combination of champagne/blush/pink. It’s absolutely gorgeous and goes well with so many papers on the market.

You can find Heidi’s post on her blog here.
