My Cup of Tea


Here's the inspiration for our current Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.  Since I love flowers so much and have so many flower stamps, I just had to make the time to play along.


I let the picture dictate my color choices and used lots of Hero Arts flower stamps and a Simon exclusive sentiment from Flower Friend.

And another, using a Purple Onion Designs Cup of Joy stamp and sentiment from HA's Tea , given to me by Virginia:


Go and have a look at the Trigger gallery - I really love seeing how everyone interprets Cath's Triggers!
