Daring Card Makers.... Scraplings ... Play Date Cafe 004 Challenge - JUGS Challenge.


This week over at Daring Card Makers they are asking everyone to make something with their bits of scrap cards etc... hence the name SCRAPLINGS!


Here is my little creation...  Made from a scrap piece of card, I embossed and then stamped a little tbag image and water coloured that in.. added some glitter and edged the card... but I also did the back.. so if seen from all angles it does really look like a cup!


The colours for Play Date Cafe Challenge this week...



It also fits in for JUGS Challenge.. which is dry embossing...




Hope you like it and if you do leave me a message lol.. why not take a look at the rest of my site..HERE




 
 

I couldn't resist putting in a picture  of the lead crystal frame I got for my hubby for our Anniversary today!!

What a beautiful card, Jacqui! It makes white card stock elegant, doesn't it, the embossing? The tea bag is just perfect! Beautiful!

I love embossing on cards.. your right Terry.. something about it making it look so elegant... well the story now behind this card.. I sat at our dining table and showed my hubby the card.. then went out to give the boys (Rabbits) a biscuit and when I got back he had used the card for my Anniversary one lol.. well he can't buy English ones here and wanted me to make my own.. guess I did in the end lol x

This is really pretty card - I love the cut out coffee cup! IS that a die cut? It's really cute with the tea bag. Happy Anniversary! Thanks SO MUCH for playing along with Just Us Girls. Hope to see you again next week for our next challenge!

BTW - before I submit I had to laugh out loud - the captcha letters I am supposed to type in spell out TRYSTS - so I hope you have a great TRSYT with your hubby :-)
