A Nice Cuppa!

Hi Crafters,

The new challenge at As You Like It this week is your Favourite Food or Drink 
& WHY.

I prefer to drink tea than coffee and I love spending time chatting with friends over a nice cuppa. 

I took a leaf out of Diane's book and created these rolled roses from the scraps left over from this card. Thanks Diane this is a great idea.

This card really caught my eye sitting here with my coffee (yup, coffee rather than tea here, though I do like a green mint tea first thing), I'm rather partial to lime & turquoise, I don't use it nearly enough but I really love it, it always looks so fresh and zingy. Love the sentiment you've used here, just perfect for the image. Hope your Mum is still doing well :) xx
