Wee Memories #41


This week's challenge at Wee Memories is to get sketchy! And what a great sketch!
Here's my take:

PTI kraft cardstock, warm happiness too (and die), border die, tea dye inks. Versafine brown ink & May Arts (gorgeous) crochet. Cosmo Cricket Earth Love mini deck.

Since I wanted to pop the cup up & the pp is not cardstock weight I also diecut the mug from chipboard (otherwise known as a cereal box) & stuck them together. I machine stitched the crochet.
Thanks so much for stopping by- I'd love to hear what you think! :)

  1. The cream trim looks so good with the pattern of the cup. That scrolly 'steam' is adorable. Wonderful wintery card.
