Anyone for a Cup of Tea?

I made this cute little gift for my mother and gave it to her during my visit to Illinois for Thanksgiving and I wanted to make another for my neighbors, Chance and Andy. This sweet little “Grab a Cup” with a selection of teas will accompany some homemade cookies and other goodies I made for their kids, A.J. and Abby.
This tea cup was designed by Lauren Meader and you can find it here. I used this sweet “Giggling Tilda” for the focal point of my project along with this cute Magnolia Tea Cup. It almost looks like Tilda’s yawning. I love a cup of tea before bedtime, especially if it’s a Chai Spice or Chamomile. It helps me to relax and reduces the stress of the day.
I used these adorable designer papers from Nana’s Kitchen Stack by DCWV. They are perfect for the theme of my gift.
And here are the Copics I used to color Tilda and the Tea Cup.
This is the “Grab a Cup” I made for my mother that inspired me to make another for the following challenges.
