My Friend, Enjoy Life Sip by Sip

Yes I know there is no 'My' yet!!!. I forgot to do it before I took the photo so
you will just have to believe me. I added it after which of course balanced the words
up. Love this stamp. I have only one other and thats a Stamping Bella with two girls
with the coffee mug and felt I needed some cups on their own.
Saw this stamp and fell in love with it so I ordered and I did that old trick of not checking size again, oops. Its a very large stamp so it fills the card. I was a bit surprised when it arrived but once coloured I was wrapped. Its perfect. I copic coloured. Added a bit of gold pen finish over the black ink.

Then added some paper piercing for the table cloth, stamped the sentiment and added
the die cut 'friend' word that I layered just once. I love how it looks. Brand new stamp
used for the first time. Its from  Catherine Scanlon Designs and called Stacked.


A new stamp for todays challenge

The stamp was fresh out of the packet and used new today

Aileen, I adore those cups staked like that, such bright, pretty colors, very Spring like.
Fabulous coloring as always my friend and the detail of the "table cloth" is perfect, love Gingham paper.
Beautifully done.

WOW! Your tower of teacups and saucers is definitely eye-catching. How much fun you must have had while colouring pretty! Your sentiment, whether with or without the 'my', is charming, as is your gingham tablecloth! A perfect friend card in every way!
