Tea cup inspiration

Hello beautiful ladies! Thanks for your lovely feedback on my photos of the last post. My DH bought me a new camera so I am learning how to use it, which is not easy for me. He bought me a book for 'dummos' but I'm still waiting for it to arrive.



This is my first inspiration picture of my tea-cups which I love.


And this is my card. I used the large Fabric Print background stamp from Hero Arts for the vertical design. The flowers are digi - printed them out. The leaves are Hero Arts from an acrylic set. I love the Merci beaucoup sentiment - that is a Stamp from Versus Rubber stamps which I won luckily enough.




My second set of tea-cups.



And this is my card - its not so much about the colors but the patterns on the cups that I based this card on.

Have a lovely weekend. I will be back next week. Tomorrow I will be in our Church all day as we are giving our Seminar on how God has worked in our marriage.  DH has the morning session and I will be sharing my testimony in the afternoon about the revelation I received from God on what my role was next to my husband in our relationship, family, work, mission etc. Biblical of course!! If anyone is interested, just look up my Meditation Monday labels and you will find some of it there.


 I just have to share this photo of my pot plant which sits on the window sill of my craft room - it has such beautiful color and gives me so much enjoyment and its just beginning to flower!

Great challenge: try to find out how your camera works and which possibilities it has! But when I see the pictures you will handle it! Your cards are great! Love them.
Have a good seminar. A very important topic which need definitely a lot of attention! God bless you tomorrow!
