CIC211 - Fresh Brewed

It's time for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and one of our fun sponsors is back.  We've got a fun sponsor to go along with the fun cupcakes.  Fresh Brewed Designs is our sponsor.  If you're a coffee drinker or want to make a card for a coffee drinker they've got the best images.  I am not much of a coffee drinker but most of my good friends are the type of people who can't start the day without a cup and most of them have received a card with a Fresh Brewed image on it.  Even if you're not in the least bit interested in coffee there are other nothing to do with coffee images. 

For my card I used the Ladybug Teapot image.  I happen to love teapots and it's perfect for this week's challenge.  The good thing about teapot stamps is I never have to worry about them breaking.  I once had a collection of teapots, several of them were on a set of shelves in the kitchen.  After we remodeled the kitchen someone who shall remain nameless wanted to surprise me by rehanging the shelves while I was out.  Somehow the shelf along with all the teapots on it hit the new tile floor.  In case you've never had a tile floor let me tell you that when glass and pottery hits it there is not much chance of survival and the shattered pieces will travel far.  Out of a dozen or so teapots one pot and one not matching lid didn't break.  It was heartbreaking for me.  I still have a few teapots that weren't on that shelf or were gifts after the fall but that fall pretty much knocked the desire to accumulate any more out of me.  So I guess in the end it saved me some money.  See there's always a bright side...
