Can You Digi It?'s new challenge is Love of Country and the inspiration pictures are awesome (some cool flags and some yummy looking patriotic desserts). I decided to capture our love of tea and coffee which is a deep and historical love (especially of tea) for most countries. I used the wonderful stacking tea cups from LilyPink Designs which you can find in the store here. These cups are so fun to color! I colored them with Copics and added a touch of Tim Holtz tea stain Distress Ink; I did one layer of the cups popped up for extra depth. My other additions include some The Twinery twine (also available at the store - check out the Patriotic pack, some stars made with a Creative Memories punch (I popped them up a bit too), and some pieces of a Starbucks cup cozy. I put the other pieces of the cozy inside. I have started saving those little cozies or protectors or whatever they are called because they are so versitile. All my papers are SU!, and I typed the sentiment which came to me while I was brushing my teeth (isn't that when everyone gets their ideas?).

Punch Tally - 3

Hugz to all - hope the rest of this week is full of wonderful suprises and blessings!

  4. Good job on this card, Nancy. I really like the sentiment and those wonderful teacups. Ideas brushing your teeth, huh? I don't know what I'm thinking when I'm brushing mine but apparently nothing creative. :-) I'll try to do better.
