Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge - Tea Time!

Hi everyone and welcome to another fun Simply Sunday Challenge! The weather is getting cooler outside, so we're warming up with something hot! The theme this week is to create a project using a hot beverage...coffee, tea, hot chocolate..
For my project, I used stamps from the Coffee & Tea for You & Me stamp set. Click HERE to purchase you own set and to see all of K Andrew Designs fabulous stamps!
The background paper is from K&Company, and I used a Tim Holtz clock mask and some walnut distress ink to add the clock to background. I cut the tea kettle, cup, plate and cookies from From My Kitchen and attached them with foam tape. The background rectangles are Spellbinders Nestabilities dies. The crinkle ribbon is from my friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces. I cut a clock from Tim Holtz paper and attached one of his clear tags to it with Mod Podge for the charm.

I am also entering this into the Cooking With Cricut Challenge #58 - Cookies, Clocks and/or Cookie Monster.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Please visit Getting Cricky to see all the awesome projects the Design Team has made and don't forget to link up your Tea Time project as well! I can't wait to see what you create :)
