Life is a Cup of Tea

House Mouse and Friends HMFMC #247 sure did give us a challenge this time... Anything BUT a Card but I checked out my stamps and thought this cute Feeling Rosy one with Maxwell in a Cup would be perfect to make some toppers, then I ended up making a tag too.  I stamped the image, and to make the topper - creased it and cut around the head so it would fold back.  Then I coloured them with Distress Inks and used a die to cut the stitched tag.  I do like a cup of tea so I put four teabags in my cellophane bags and attached the toppers.
 I used the colour theme at Colour Throwdown #456 - Pink, Green and Yellow.  Thanks for taking a peek... I'm sure a couple of friends will enjoy these.
