Tea & Chat...

Good evening lovely friends...

Only five more sleeps until lovely Lili of the Valley launch the gorgeous sets of trios which the super Design Collective and I have been sharing with you all. 

So...make sure you are all set and ready to hit the 'add to my basket' button at Midday on Wednesday 28th January!

Here is my second Sneak Peek of the really adorable Time for Tea Trio - perfect for me because I am a great lover of tea...we have tea on tap at our house which reminds me of a wonderful phrase from Len Goodman (Strictly Come Dancing).  He recently said..
'I am a cup of tea in a skinny latte world...' 
I know exactly what he means!
For my second sneak peek I decided to make a quirky card/tea gift.  The card is tea cup shaped and opens up to reveal a little pocket with a tea bag in it, attached to a sentiment mounted on the front of the card.

I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut the tea cup and the additional paper shapes.

I coloured one of the trios with Copics and die cut one of the three sentiment that also comes with these wonderful trios.

...and here we are, tea for two.  I think this would make a wonderful little gift for a tea drinking friend...Pity there is n't room in the little pocket for cake as well!
and here is the inside...

This is fabulous Sue!!! What a clever idea and get you, with your Cameo again... showing off now! LOL! Love what you did - and that little pocket for the tea back - perfect. Only a shame I don't drink tea.... and not really latte's either........ water, fruit juice or diet lemonade is what I drink (besides the odd ginger beer or pink champers...), and you'd not get much in that little pocket!! hehe!

Big hugs
Christine x

Totally tea-riffic!!!
I too am a tea gal and get Len's saying - although I can't bring myself to have a cup of tea when in Starbucks - it's just not right lol!!!!
