Welcome to the Blog Hop!

Hello!  Welcome to our "Card Carnival" Blog Hop! 
If you're following the blog trail, you should have arrived here from  VICKI'S BLOG
If you've just come into the hop from my blog, you can keep going with the link at the bottom of this post or start from the beginning back at SHER'S BLOGEither way is fine, just make sure you hit all 18 blogs so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects we have to share.

So...what do I have for you?  A card that I hope will suit your needs to a "tea"!
This card is very simple to make using the SVG file
Free file has expired.
You can purchase it HERE
This file contains four layers:
*teacup shaped card
*teacup and saucer shadow layer
*teacup and saucer top layer (2 pieces)
*teabag label layer
 I used Distress Inks and a waterpen to add shading.  The area on the label is large enough to add a sentiment if you wish.  I used a SU "Thank You" stamp. 
The sample shown below was created by Creative Team member Bonnie.  Notice that she did not use the teabag label?  Again, the versatility of the SVG!  Read more about how Bonnie created this card on her BLOG.  Don't forget to come back for the rest of this post!
I also have a little giveaway for you:  a set of cards/envelopes all ready to be embellished and a sheet of alphabet stickers.  You don't need to be a follower to enter, but if you ARE, I will include a few other goodies in the package.  Please leave a comment below and I will randomly select a winner Monday morning.
Thank you for stopping by. 
I hope while you were here you checked out the rest of my blog. 
If  you are on Facebook, you can "Like" The Creative Pointe.
Okay, enough about me!  <grin>

I am an ultra newbie - new to blogs, challenges, digital art and now new to your followers. Your tea cup card is fantabulous! I need to learn how to use SVG files, I downloaded GIMP and something else but am still clueless. Nonetheless I will download your file and save it because I want to use it someday soon!
Blessings to you, Deborah-JoyfullyOrange
