Anyone for a cuppa tea

I have been on leave for the last few days and I have to admit that all I have mainly done is clean my house with very loud music in the background. The area in which I do my creative thang was in such a horrible mess, it took me about 10 hours to get back to normal. I have actually written down the date on which I have cleaned this room and taken a photo of the mess so that it hopefully never gets like this again, I can only try.

After the big cleanup finished yesterday it was time to start creating again, the first project I did was a card. The other day I found these really awesome tea cup embellishments in my stash and just couldn't wait to use them. I was actually thinking wouldn't it be great to find a challenge where it was related to a cup of tea and guess what I not only found one challenge but two so was extremely happy, only you fellow bloggers out there would understand my excitement about this.

Cup of tea card
The challenges I have included are-

The sweetest thing, sketch-

Scallops,Penny's Challenges-

Embellishments, La- La Land Crafts Blog-

One for the girls,Secret Crafter-I really can't imagine giving this card to a guy

Tea or Coffee,Crafty Creations-

Bling, Paper Blooms-The centre of all the flowers have diamantes

Flower power, Charizma cardz-

Tea for two,Die cut dreams-
Chipboard, Scrap your crap-

Altered envelope-
The other day when I was at the train station I was given a sample of the newest kleenex tissues. I loved the shape of the little envelope it came in and so decided to alter the envelope. I undid the envelope, put double sided tape on a patterned piece of paper and stuck it directly onto the envelope, using a craft knife I cut the envelope out stuck back into its original shape.

The one thing I do regret is that I didn't put patterned paper on the inside which is visible but I guess this will be covered once something is put inside.

The challenges I have included are-

Cupcake craft challenges,pearls and swirls-I have included pearls as the centre of the flowers and swirls are part of the design of the paper used

Charizma cards, flower power.

Tuesday Taggers, die cuts and punches- I have punched out the flowers that have the pear centres

Bling, paper blooms.

One for the girls, Secret crafter.
