Your Tea-rific and Dirty Dozen

Hi, everyone.  I hope you all are having a great day.   We have sunshine today and I hope you are getting some in your neighborhood.  I am ready for Spring  I am doing the "happy dance" because we are going back to Daylight Savings Time this weekend.   Yay,  more daylight in the evenings.  That means I can get back to walking our dogs after dinner.

I want to apologize for not having many posts on my blog the past few weeks.   Last month I was asked to be a part of the Dirty Dozen design team on Splitcoast Stampers.  I have been busy making cards for the team and I am not allowed to share them here.  I am now getting the hang of things there and hope to have more posts in the near future. I also hope to visit your blogs more often.

Here is a card I made using Your Next Stamp  Sprinkles Coffee and Tea.  I fell in love with this stamp set the moment I saw it. The little bunny butt sticking out of the cup is just adorable.

My side step card was very easy to make.  I used a Center Step Card die by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I have always liked this style of card, but hated doing the measuring and cutting to get it.   I used  a stitched  die for my cup and added a cupcake to go with the tea.  It is actually a Valentine embellishment, but I thought it worked well with the cup of tea.

Thank you, for stopping by today.
