My Cup of Tea


I love black and white!  It takes me back to a time when people actually took the time to relax.  I don't know why, but who remembers the time before smart phones and social media?  Who now a days sits down and has a cup of tea?

Even if you go to Starbucks, you will see people in groups or by themselves and the first thing you notice are the cell phones… looking up email, checking in on Facebook, or taking selfies… LoL.

I know all of this has nothing to do with the stamp set, but it's just what it makes me think.  Are there any rubber stamps that lead you to think something that has nothing to do with the image? 


I'm an old-fashioned kind of girl and the Tea Party stamp set is perfect for letting someone know you care about them.  It's perfect for your significant other, or a friend.

About Maggie

I'm a Graphic Art Designer and Greeting Card Maker. It's a form of therapy and I love what I do, so I never have to work a day in my life. It's my win-win situation after a 25-year Air Force career as a hospital administrator.


  1. Wow…Very elegant Maggie. It makes me want to hold my little pinky finger out as I sip my coffee. HeeHe! I too love black and white. There’s another wonderful lady on another blog and she starts out with a black and white pic and I just love it. Then she does the same pic in full blown color and WOW! It’s really cool to see them both ways. I really like that you added the antique looking silver brads too.

    The only stamp that I can think of right now is that “critter” stamp from the Tag It set. I always think he should be in a desert scene and not on a birthday card. He should be surrounded by cactus and sand and some rocks with a full sun! How’s that for imagination! =)

    Stunning card Maggie. Thanks for sharing with us. BIG Blessings to you!

  2. I love black and white too Maggie. I especially love it with a pop of color, usually red, yellow or melon mambo!!! It is amazing what that does to a project!
