An unusual cuppa!

Hello lovely people,

I seem to be in one of those phases where I am making quite a few cards but my blog is being sorely neglected; must try harder!


Today I have a card to share with you for our new challenge at As You Like It and our theme this time is...

YOUR FAVOURITE...COLOUR COMBO
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Wild Orchid Crafts with a £12 voucher


My fave colour combo is pink (of course!) and anything along the green/turquoise/aqua spectrum because they really make each other pop and can look great in vintage or modern style.

I have gone for a more modern style with nice bright colours on this card and used some die cut flowers for a change to my usual paper ones.

This card was for my Mum's birthday and she does love her tea so this image seemed perfect.

Now, I am not a tea drinker, but I'm pretty sure this is not the correct way to make tea...but it might just be the cutest teacup ever!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your fab colouring of this image Kat... I'm sure your Mum will be thrilled with her card as pink and turquoise always look good together. That's another image that sits waiting to be coloured in my stash........ one day....... one day!!

I'm not a tea drinker either..... I think the last cup I had was before Emma was born.... 32 years back!

Yep! Mum loved it! Cup of tea always helps the day go round & top of my list as general restorative! Turquoise is one of my favourite colours as it goes with almost anything else, including pink of course! Love Mum x
