Tea Time

I am participating in my first swap over at SCS !! And, of course, I am coming down to the wire on my cards. I have had the vision/idea for a month, but it has taken me awhile to get just the right ingredients. I am pretty happy with the way it came out! Now I just have to make six more (but that will be easy, now that I have all the measurements set). I am not a frilly pink kind of person, so I put my own little twist on it with the papers.

I love the sentiment inside (I printed it off my computer).

Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it still sings! ~Author Unknown

And for those of you who are wondering about my photo light box, I chickened out of making one and just bought one I found for around $50 (with the lights, four backdrops and a tripod). I think I probably should iron the backdrop; I was just to excited to try it out once I finished my card!
Thanks for looking!
