Tea, anyone?

When I saw this week's sketch for the Atlantic Hearts Challenge,
I had no idea how I was going to accomplish it.  Since I'm not at home to enjoy the nor'easter and the snow it is bringing to my friends and family, I do not have access to my stash.  I only brought 2 stamp sets with me, one that came with the CTMH Heartstrings WOTG Card Making Kit and an additional sentiment set.  I didn't know how much time I'd have to craft, plus the car was loaded. Luckily, I pulled a tea cup stamp out of a box of stuff my friend didn't want any more.  I've yet to see a tea cup stamp I didn't like. Tea cups are my undoing when it comes to stamps.  And making CAS cards are always a challenge for me.   But, amazingly, when your stash is far, far away, it is much easier to manage CAS.

(Sentiment stamp is CTMH.)
Here are the challenges I am entering today:
