A cup of tea

solves all of life's problems, as soon as I saw this fab image I knew it was crying out to be paper pieced.   I have paper pieced using the "time for tea" papers from Nit Wit and I even managed to find a verse with tea in it lol. I have started to make 2 of each card when I find myself with inspiration and hopefully this will mean I can be more creative when I want rather than constantly needing a card yesterday and having to rush it.

Image: "Polly's teacup" Sassy Cheryl
Papers: "Time for Tea" Nit Wit
Cardstock: "Sno Cone" MFT stamps
Ribbon: Michaels
Die: "Faux crochet border" MFT

Hi Amanda

A really beautiful card .. .. I would love a tea set like that!!!

I think I should make two or three of every card too - it would solve lots of problems .. .. but I just know it will never happen :-(

Hope all is good with you. Sorry for being a stranger .. .. it has been a super busy week!!

Love Jules xx
