WT Challenge and Cat with Cuppa!!

While I am waiting for my Mr. Fix-it man to come and fix my washing machine, I am going to post my Ways to Use It Challenge for today, which is called Envelope It!!

Decorate the envelope that goes with your card!! I love this but I never do it because of time issues - good excuse anyway.........

I went to The Town Scrapper yesterday and saw Phebe's new stamps!! Pink Gem Designs!! Absolutely darling and the wonderful news is that Phebe is the exclusive Canadian supplier of these acrylic stamps!

How lucky are we to have her so close??!!!
This little darling with the mug is called "Cat with Cuppa".

I stamped the image with Brilliance Black and then cut it out with my square nestabilities. While the image was still in the frame I sponged the blue sky and green grass around her - I like that look because it leaves a little white border, which I am luvin' lately.

I stamped the flower pot again, coloured the flower, cut it out and popped it up to add a little variance in my card.

I coloured this sweetheart with my copics and then got out my white gel pen again and dotted and dashed until I liked what I saw - which was easy because I like the image anyway!

My card base is prism cardstock - baby blue medium - and I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie for my designer paper.

I tied a bow with Papertrey Ink sweet blush satin ribbon and added the Amuse sentiment.

I drink my tea in a mug, because you can get more tea in a mug than in a teacup!! Although my mom gave me some of my grandma's teacups and I absolutely adore them - I would love to use them again, I
should use them again..........

I added a little scarf of scalloped paper under my image. Now I am wishing I would have popped that out a bit! darn.

For the envelope, I masked off the kitty and just stamped the flower pot plus a couple of more dragonflies/butterflies/cutie patootie bugs!! Then I coloured it with my copics and it is set to post in the mail ......YAY!!
