One Cup At A Time

Just like teaching a toddler to walk by taking one step at a time, so I encourage all my coffee-loving friends to tackle life one cup at a time.  And now, you can get this fabulous sentiment in a brand new stamp set from Paper Sweeties called Tackle Life One Cup At a Time.  I used this fabulous new set for the sentiment on this card, and I also used the tea pot and tea cup stamps from the lovely new You Warm My Heart Stamp Set and cut them out using You Warm My Heart Sweet Cuts.
I used two patterned papers and inked their edges, machine stitched the papers together, and then added a length of tulle trim and some soft pink mini gingham trim to create my base.  Next, I tied a double bow using some pink seam binding; and I topped that with a Pearl Heart Ribbon Slider.  On top of the tea cup, I added three Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms.  I love all these soft. subtle, lovely touches.
Once again, I will be sharing my card in a few challenges where I enjoy playing along.  I hope that you have been able to get your craft on this week.  Remember, just take life ONE CUP AT A TIME.  That's my best suggestion for getting through life.  Well that, and A LOT of prayer!
Thank you for visiting me,
Karen
