Stampin' Up! flood appeal and a 'tea-riffic' card!

Here is a special announcement from Stampin' Up! regarding how they will be supporting the flood appeal:
"As flood waters continue to inundate Australia in what has been described as the worst flooding in 37 years, we express our deepest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones and homes and to those whose lives have been changed forever. We, like so many of you, feel a compelling need to lend support to all those who have been affected.

Stampin' Up! demonstrators have a long history of making a difference in the lives of others--especially when disaster strikes and the need is greatest. Nearly two years ago, we watched another tragedy unfold in Australia. Our hearts were touched as demonstrators, customers and friends joined together in support of the Bushfire Appeal. We've done it before and we can certainly do it again!

Please join with us by supporting the Australia Flood Appeal--a cause in which Stampin' Up! will donate $2 AUD of the retail value of sales from any stamp set (with a retail value of $30 or more) sold in Australia and New Zealand from 15 January through 15 February to the State Emergency Services in Queensland."

And here is a little card which uses the gorgeous set, Morning cup. This was one of the first sets that I just had to have from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue. It's so cute and looks fabulous watercoloured. The colours used here are Rich razzleberry and Pear pizzazz on a Very vanilla base. It has a cute stampin around wheel that co-ordinates with the set which I have used on the top and bottom of the card.
The watercolouring has been done using the aquabrush and ink.
This is a card that we will be making at one of my upcoming workshops.

Happy Stamping!

Love, Claire
