Because I Care

Hello! Well everything's back to normal again, half of me doesn't like new year as I just think it signals the end of the festive season and I Love Christmas! But I've still got a couple more days off so I've time to make a few cards!
This one is for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch, I always seem to be at the later end of the week! But it gave me a chance to use this cute little teapot die set! I thought it would make a nice get well card. I've also used this sweet little teacup brad, the colours are such a close match, I'm dead chuffed! But also wanted to use one of these brads as they were from Jamie for Christmas, he doesn't often venture into craft shops without being dragged there by me but he went to Hobbycraft on his own and picked up some really sweet little stocking gifts, and these were one of them!
I hope you like it, thanks for looking!
How cute is this little teabag shape?!!
