Color Throwndown #127 & The Paper Players #32

 Anything goes at Paper Players....are you kidding...I actually had an idea in my head as to what I wanted to do ~ this was just too perfect and also a first for me. I usually need a visual to go by and from there I'm able to create ~ wow! I'm so excited that the visual this time was already steeping....literally!

and I've got a certain special someone in mind and some of her favourite things are the colors blue & yellow and a extra hot cup of tea! When I saw the Color Throwdown for this week, I knew it was exactly what I needed color wise! So here is my card that has been created for her with much love & prayer as I played with this! 
Hope you like it my dear friend?

I colored in each teacup using my Bashful Blue
& So Saffron write markers 
and then used Crystal Effects on each.  Don't you just love china teacups..
..a nice hot cup of Earl Grey Tea is the best in a cute little teacup!
I'm enjoying one right now!

Here'a a peek of the inside of my card

and a little peek at our youngest grandson ~
can you believe he's already 3 months old!

Thank you so much for the visit!
I hope you have a wonderful day and weekend ~
yippee Friday is here!
