.....Time For Tea!

Today is the start of a new challenge over at My Time To Craft. As you have probably noticed we have changed our day from Tuesday to a Saturday, we will still be running weekly so its just the day that's changed! So this week we have a great challenge for you, one of my favourite things to do


I decided  to use a stamp I've had for a while, but hadn't inked up. This little cutie will be on his way down south to a very good friend who is going into hospital on Monday. We have a standing joke between us, because when we go to stop she has to stock up on tea bag because I drink at least 15-20 a day ...if its cold I drink more lol, so I thought this image might cheer her up xxx

Hello shell. What a fab card.
Great image and design.
I am in full agreement of drinking tea too. My husband says the kettle never gets cold in our house, because I am always wanting tea, hahahaha.
Happy crafting.

Kathie said...

Hi Shell, your friend will just love her card, it's awesome for a tea lover like her. You could always buy her a new cup and sauce or a very large mug to go with the card so she won't need as many cups of tea a day. LOL
This is a lovely card great image and it look great coloured on Kraft paper. Your embellishments are just the perfect finishing touch to a great card. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
