The basis of this card is the Primrose Petals Core'dinations card stock. I love this stuff - it has a paler core which can be revealed by sanding lightly (particularly effective when the card stock is dry-embossed first) or you can leave its fabulously subtle texture as it is - as I've done here.
The cup stamp comes with a sentiment so all I had to do was colour the rubber with markers, stamp onto Whisper White card stock and cut it out with a click of my tag punch. Once it was glued at a jaunty angle to the card front, I finished it with a knot of this gorgeous stitched grosgrain ribbon attached with a glue dot to the top of the tag.

All this talk of teabags is making me want a cup of tea! When my youngest son was tiny, he always used to ask me if I'd like "some cup of tea" and solemnly pour me out a cup of water from his plastic teapot. It was obviously excellent training as he is quite happy to make me a cup of the real thing now!
I've had an idea for a little gift to go with today's card so, if it all goes according to plan, I shall show you tomorrow. Hope to see you then,
