FFC#66...Time for Tea

{this is post #2 for the day. If you are here for my Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge, it is located below this post.}

Our Friday Fun Challenges this month have been selected by Sara and this month is National Hot Tea Month so she chose this week's theme to be Tea.

I love this theme and have been a long-time tea person. I don't drink it as often as I used to, but still find the whole ritual of drinking hot tea to be a perfect relaxant for me. When Jacob was 4 (that was absolutely his hardest year for me as a mom,) I would brew a cup of tea every night after his bedtime and go out and sit on the porch and sip it with a good magazine simply as a way to unwind.

Because I do enjoy tea so much, I wanted to do something a bit different this week....
This is a very simple 8x10 piece of wall art.
It's very simple because every time I tried to fancy it up, it seemed to take away from the overall look so I just left it at simple. I love that large teacup stamp...remember the art piece in the center of this frame is 8x10 so that tells you just how big that stamp is!

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Mega Tea Cup
*Pink Paislee paper collection
*Nestabilities die cut
*Martha Stewart border punch
*Basic Grey Nook & Cranny paper (pink floral strip)
*StazOn Jet Black inkpad
*computer generated quote

This is just beautiful! I was brought up on tea, love it. My mom was born in England & my grandparents in Ireland. The saying reminds me of when my grandpa had cancer. As long as he could drink his tea, everything was ok!
