Tea Time For mom

Its been a busy week for me so far!  
Lots of work... not a lot of creating! 
Today I took a little time out for that creating...
I made this card for mom 
(hopefully she doesn't read the blog till she gets the card!)
I found some cool retro looking paper at the local scrap store
and thought I'd try out some new stamps I picked up at 
Tuesday Morning!
Also, over at Shopping Our Stash their challenge is 3, 2, 1, as in 3 of something
2 of something else, and 1 of something... so I have 3 stamps, 2 paper designs, and 1 die cut
Yes, that's an oval die cut in the center..
Here's the fun part of this card.
It's the surprise inside

That's right, a tea bag!
You see, mom and dad are coming back for a visit in a few weeks
And maybe we'll get to go out for tea, but if not,
we could always have a skype session and a cup of tea!
So I know it's hard to see, but I actually layered these strips of
paper all around the tea bag. Layer after layer after layer.
I did the same thing on the front of the card, layering the green stripes around 
the pink teapot paper. 

Hope you enjoy today's post! I hope to have some fun posts the 
rest of the week as well! So come on back and check out the fun!  
And remember to come back on Sunday for a fun new challenge over at
