A pocket full of tea!

Hi all,

I hope you are all well. My sister, brother in law and neice arrived from California on Sunday morning, so we have been a full house. I haven't seen them for over a year and it's nice for Daisy to have someone about her age to play with.

Over on the Incy Wincy challenge blog, we are sponsored by Stamping Dragon Designs and we were given some to play with. The theme this week is Make a pocket card. Well, my card does have a pocket on it, although it is quite small. I chose this cute owl and decided to use the teacup as a pocket to put a teabag into. The papers are by prima and I think they suited the afternoon tea feel I went for. Check out the fab cards from the rest of the DT on the blog.
