One afternoon, I found my friend in an antique store where I went to shop for a new teacup. She was there looking for a pretty birthday gift for her mother-in-law. I was looking for inspiration for a new spring teacup card. This beautiful basket teacup caught my eye. I held it up to my friend and proclaimed, “This is it!” meaning the teacup for my new spring card. She exclaimed, “Yes it’s perfect! My mother-in-law will love it!” The look on my face must have revealed my true thoughts, because she asked, “Did you want that teacup?”
We came to an agreement. She would give it to her mother-in-law as a gift and I would borrow it as a model. It become a “FOR YOU” card. The inside reads, "Because you mean so much to me" and comes with a delightful Egyptian Chamomile tea.
