English Tea

Good morning, blog friends! Please forgive the lack of postings this past month or so - I have a good reason. I've just returned from a two week jaunt to Thailand! Ward, Wally, the Beav and I went to share in a friend's joy - he got married to the most amazing woman. I'll try to share some stories and pics soon, but in the meantime, I have a fun Lockhart card to share with you.

This Tea Pot image was a no-brainer choice for me today, as I'm very cold and very much in need of caffeine! I started this card with some papers from Kaisercraft, called English Rose. (I don't usually start with the paper, instead I prefer to color the image first, then choose papers that coordinate.) My coloring choice on this was Copic markers, and I pretty much stuck with a mono-chromatic look to emphasize the coordination with the papers. A little machine stitching finished off the simple look with style. Here's a closer look at this great image:

One of the best things about Lockhart stamps are their versatility. I love how this card can be used for a variety of occasions! (I think this one will be going to a friend whose birthday is at the end of the week.)

Thanks for sticking with me during my little haitus. I have a personal goal to get back into regular posting, so don't be surprised to hear from me a bit more regularly! Have an amazing day & be well.
