Waltzingmouse is Turning 2!!!

... and you could win a really big present! Go check out all the details here!
I made this really cute tea cup with Claire's amazing Tea Cup Template. ( There is no way I could ever think that one up on my own!) You can buy it here.I used the gorgeous Festive Foliage stamp set to make my cup. I love that set. Everything looks better with pretty pinecones! I actually used white cardstock but got it all inky with some PTI chai tea ink. The ink for the images is Palette new leaf and memento jumbo java. The liner is some old green patterned paper. I have no idea of manufacturer.
One more view of the tea cup. This template is easier than it looks but I am not going to swear its easy, LOL! I am a little challenged when it comes the fussy cutting and that handle was hard! But it was fun and I do look forward to making another.
