the tea cup --

my second post of the evening is for another challenge.

this one is for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. i've never played this one before -- i found the link on a stamping friend's blog and thought i'd give it a try.

each sunday they post a new challenge inspired by scripture.  this week's challenge also has a wonderful story attached to it about a tea cup in the Master's hand.  it's a beautiful story -- the link above will take you there if you'd like to read it.  the challenge was to create a card using a tea cup, coffee cup, or tea/coffee pot.

here is my card for the challenge:

i'm sorry -- i'm not sure where the stamp comes from, and i used designer paper i had on hand.  you can't really tell from the picture (i'm still working on my photos) but the teacup is raised with dimensionals, and so is the teabag -- i doubled the ones behind the teabag so that it would stick up higher then the cup.

i loved this challenge -- i collect teapots, and had never heard this story before.  how awesome!

thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping.
