Tea-riffic Birthday Card - STB #3

Happy Thursday to my Delightful friends and family!
Hope your day is going well. My little grandkids are home sick today, which makes me sad that they are feeling so bad.  But that means I have a day to clean house or play in my craft room.  Which I have done both! So there, you can't judge me (right?? ha!)  I have to confess I've spent more hours playing than cleaning.  My pastor hubs went out to lunch with a sweet elderly lady from church while I had to stick around for the furnace repair man to come and clean the furnace and the appointment had already been rescheduled once so I didn't want to reschedule again!  Which is ok, more time to play, oops! I mean clean.  I'll make this post quick so I can get back to my "chores"  ;-) You'll have to figure out what that means! 
Here is the birthday challenge sketch from Seize the Birthday (#3):

  Love this new stamp and die set called Tea-riffic from Taylored Expressions.  I used the Echo Park paper (This & That collection) for the paper piecing as well as the coordinating front panels and hearts.
  I've paper pieced two of the cups and colored with  Copics the other two.  I  matched up the paper piecing and copic coloring on the sentiment image, too.
Other Ingredients:  Bazzill  and Neenah card stock, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Spellbinder Nestabilities Scallop Circle and Standard Circle; My Favorite Things Die-Namics Fishtail Flag Stax; Heart punch; Want 2 Scrap Adhesive pearls.
Well, that's all for me today.  I guess it's back to the house cleaning ;-)
To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.  Proverbs 21:3
