Tea For Two

I don't like tea.
Do you?
Or at least, 
I have not yet found a tea I like.
I like coffee.
No, I LOVE coffee.

Having said that, I DO like
visiting with friends, sharing secrets, laughter and love
and all the things that go with having a cuppa.

So I was delighted to learn that this month's theme at

Here are some samples I made
       uses the Long Ago Time digital Stamps 
and Portabello Road papers 

 Crop image from La Vie Collage Sheet
Place on top of white cardstock. 
 Erase edges of image to blend.

 Change layer to Multiply mode
Place over top of Tightrope paper from Life is a Circus Paper Set
 Apply reverse bevel.  Merge Layers 

And for our new Customer Challenge 

And here is my inspiration:
