Just my cup of tea!


I spent ages thinking about what I could do and having no coffee stamps or images, I thought I would do a coffe and cream colour theme, but no, no paper either!

So I decided to do the very British thing of tea, instead! The coffee inpired me for sure! So I hope it counts over at 365 cards?!

Inside it says: "It's all in how you make it!" I myself am a 2 sugar, milk in last kind of girl.

I was thinking of a certain posh lady when I was making this, (no, not the Queen!) and I think it is right up her alley!

I would have liked some patterned grey paper but I did the best with what I had, surely this has to be a reason to go craft shopping?!


I couldn't leave it alone! So I dug out this paper from the DCWV All Dressed Up stack and added it, but because it is quite late there is rather a dodgy photo, I will update this tomorrow morning, I promise!

  2. Bex, love the card and we here in US know that in the UK Tea is your cup of coffee. I love a good cup of coffee, but here in Minnesota when it is -30 in the winter I also love a good cup of tea.

  3. Why not! We drink tea in Britain so we should celebrate it! Lovely card!

  4. It is a hard thing if you don't make coffee, isn't tea the UK's coffee anyway, so you are just perfect, great card. I love it when I comment on your blog 'cause your little fur kids are right there, they are adorable
