Royal-Tea.......PPA50.....

Oh we are all creatures of habit in one way or another.  I start and end every day with the Earl of Grey.  Even when I am vacationing at the lake, he comes along.  Pals Paper Arts' color challenge this week was to use So Saffron, Chocolate Chip and Basic Gray.  As I thought about what to create this morning, the answer appeared right in front of me!  I followed the Stamping411 sketch and used a sentiment from Favorite Thoughts.  And last but not least I snipped the string from my tea bag to share with you - there is nothing better than a cup of tea with a friend.......

Can I join you for a spot 'o' tea at that lakeside table?! Looks like a jolly good location for some fine Earl Grey--a personal favorite too. Your card is lovely and so perfectly elegant with the colors and tea theme--even the Grey tea tag coordinates--so clever you are!

Linda - absolutely love it! I hadn't thought to put the tea bag tag with this sentiment... brilliant idea. I too begin and end my day with tea. However, I'm an Irish Breakfast girl. I like my tea strong and rich (like my men... but I have better luck finding strong, rich tea :-)...)
thanks for inspiring us
