Time for Tea

Good Morning Peeps, hope you are all enjoying this Summer weather. This will be my last 'live' post for three weeks, today we are hosting our 'little girls' (granddaughter) 18th Birthday party, then I have hospital to deal with again when I am very much hoping to get the all clear, followed immediately afterwards by our holiday so lots of scheduled posts lined up but will try and add a little update on the health front if I can as so many continue to so kindly enquire how I am doing.

Sara is inviting us to afternoon tea at Allsorts this week with the lovely theme of 'Time for Tea'. Our sponsors are FlonzCraft and Eureka Stamps.

As a non tea drinker I don't tend to buy crafting goodies associated with tea although I know there are lots to choose from so after giving it some thought remembered the Alice in Wonderland designs from Nicecrane and the Mad Hatter's Tea Party seemed an obvious choice. It's teamed up with Graphic 45 DP's, ivy and flowers. The script is computer generated and taken from the Alice book.

Happy weekend all.


  1. It's a very clever card! Have a lovely weekend!

  2. Beautiful card Brenda. Love your colour choices. The Mad Hatter does look mad! Holding thumbs for positive news on the health front. Have a lovely party for your granddaughter and enjoy your cruise. (I am green with envy!). Michelle x

  3. Glad to see you back in the "flesh" Brenda, sending my crafting love and best wishes. I am a huge tea drinker and your tea party card is perfect for the theme, the floral border is a really pretty one. Enjoy your granddaughter's 18th, how wonderful.
