I like a nice cup of tea . . . . . .

As I was designing & making this card, the lyrics of the 'nice cup of tea' song kept coming into  my head and I found myself singing the song!!  The stamp and the embossing folder was free with a magazine several months ago now.  this is the first card I made using it and  I've made several cards with it since which I will show case on my blog over the coming weeks.  I've also found another great place to show case my cards, the Do craft website where I have my own 'crafty place'.  I know that there is a bit of  snobery with crafters when it comes to Do craft but I find a lots of inspiration from the site and those that  contribute are such a great crowd!!  

I've looked at the weather forecast for the Easter weekend and it appears we will probably have rain!! Easter weekend is usually either wonderful weather or it's a complete wash out!!   Joe and I  are hoping that the weather cast is wrong as we have a few days out planned.

Last weekend the whole of my family came to ours for Sunday lunch with all the trimmings.  It's a busy time with 4 grandchildren the youngest 12 weeks old and the eldest being 8.  But we have such a wonderful time, but cooking for 9 can be challenging for me these days, but Joe helps and the dishwasher goes into overdrive!!!

thanks for dropping by and leaving your wonderful comments

Lesley, that sounds like a cute little song! I've also never heard of that website but will check it out.
Love your card and those wonderful colors of Spring! So very pretty. Great design too.
Hope your Easter isn't a total wash out with the rain and y'all have a good time.
