Mother's Day Cards: Tea Theme - Aren't You Sweet

There's this lovely teapot/teacup stamp set in the latest a muse studio catalog, aren't you sweet. I find it charming and it makes me think of my Grammie. She had a few fancy pretty teacups that she'd gotten over the years as gifts and party prizes. When she passed away, my sister and I each got one - so special.

I love how some of the old teacups had a pinkish or tealish hue in the glaze so I tried to re-create that below with copics.I should have written down the colors but... ;)
The vintage labels 1 die makes a perfect little placemat for a tea cup. Don't you agree?
Although it's blurry, isn't this font pretty? :)
Here the vintage label makes a sweet spot for a sentiment. The scalloped border creates a "shelf" for the teapot and teacup.
Thanks for popping in and have a most wonderful day celebrating your mom. I hope you're as lucky to have a great mom like I do!
