Cricut Cardz Challenge #62 "Cup of Cheer"

Well can't we all use one of those now and again, A Cup of Cheer!!! Well, this is my first shape card and I thought, what a good time to try it. It is not exactly what was invisioned however, I think it turned out pretty cool. I don't drink coffee hower have a hankering for tea every so often (ok, ok, ok, everyday!) So I thought I'd share my cup of tea with you. A wise man once said "my cup runneth over", I know it seems silly to say however in these trying times for our country where my cup runeth someone else's is dry, so I have one for me and one to share. I hope you enjoy.

 I used my Gypsy to weld the cups and used the flip function so when closed it looks like one, and they are a toatal of 8 inches long or 4 inches when closed. I Used the cup from the Gypsy Wonderings cartridge and my cuttlebug for the embossing. The greeting was printed via my computer "Two for Tea, Tea for Two." I also added a little stickles for some bling!! I just put a spot of glue behind the tags on the bags so they would not hang out the bottom of the card.  Though you could tuck them in and use the pocket for your sentiment. I hope everyone enjoys, I know I am.

PS. Thanks everyone for the great feedback so far, you guys ROCK! I do try to return comments and follow as many as possible. I'll be talking to you all soon :)
