Tea for Two.....

Ya know... I, as many of us do up alot of Design Team cards... and while I love each and every one of them... it just seems when I do a card for a special friend or family member... THOSE are the cards that turn out better than any other... I guess it's the extra love you put in them?? I dont know... I dont cook...but it's kinda like that sappy cheesy old saying your grandmother always used to say about why her Cookies always tasted so good... Cause they're made with Love. Is that it?? Whatever it is... Good mojo or love... I love it when a PLAN comes together! LOL

Recently a very special friend of mine moved... away... FAR AWAY. :( People just shouldn't be allowed (now I start to say that and realize that almost 10 years ago I did the same to my closest friends when I moved here to Williams Lake... *Sigh* Im sorry for that) I miss her allready and she's only been gone a few days. So I've been thinking of her alot and wanted to make her a special card to mail to her new home in FORT FREAKIN NELSON!!! OMG! Could you find a FARTHER away place woman?!?!  Anyhow... before I start ranting. Here is my card for you.
Aren't these little House Mouse critters adorable?? I love them soo.... I LOVE House Mouse in general actually! LOL Now, this stamp actually has a Hot Chocolate tin behind the mice, but Chris is a Tea freak.. AND a fan of the colour Blue so I had to alter it abit and make a TEA card. :) I've also used the sketch from over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday I've flipped the sketch on it's side...it's there it really is. :)  anyhow... I dont wanna go on and on about my card. So I'll sign off for now. But I hope you like... and Chris... it's on it's way to you soon! :) I miss ya so much!
Cheers all!

Hi Cheri, I do love your card those mice are just so cute. Lovely idea by putting the teapot and teabag on the card knowing your friend is into tea. I know the feeling about loosing your friend mine left for London 20 years ago and we speek often and she comes home most Christmas holidays but it's still not the same. Great job and thanks so much for joining us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week and good luck.
Hugs

Wow this is a wonderful card and I love your take on the sketch. You've sort of composed a scene here which I think is so darn clever. Love those sweet mice. I'm so glad you've taken the time to share this fabulous card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
