I'm A Little Teapot


This is one of my favorite quotes!  Coming from a line of strong women, it reminds me of the women who have shown me that no matter what life throws at you, have faith and hold your head up high...you are stronger than you think!


My card features this wonderful stamp set and coordinating dies from Dare 2B Artzy: Tea 4 Two!  I sponged the background with distressed inks then stamped the sentiment and 'steam'.  It was such fun copic coloring the teapot and cup with bright, summery colors!

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
