Put the Kettle On


I discovered very quickly after I came to live in Northern Ireland why
the British and Irish drink so much tea - sometimes you feel so cold
right down to your bones and a good "cuppa" is about the
only way to warm up from the inside out!
And it's very true that people reach for the kettle when
a crisis looms, large or small!
I love this Stampendous sentiment and created a little tag with a hole
punch and MFT's Fishtail Flag Die-namics.  
I sponged the edges of the tea-cup with Stampin Up's Lucky
Limeade ink to give some dimension and also curled the edges
with a paintbrush handle to give a rounded effect.
 It was created with a cute little Memory Box die.
The flourish, from Papertrey Ink, is stamped to create some "steam".
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by today!
