Week 211 - Time for Tea

Hello Everyone,

Thankyou for popping by again.  
It is my turn to host the Allsorts Challenge for this week and I have chosen 

Time for Tea!
As crafters we love a lovely cup of tea so I thought that it was really fitting as a Challenge.

This is my take on the Challenge - 

This was such a quick card and it is such a great card to use for so many occasions.
The stamp is a Kanban stamp and it is a single tea cup and I have masked it and stamped it again.
It is very simply stamped in Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and the ribbon is Cosmic Shimmer.
I really love this stamp and have used it on a few cards.

I would like to say a massive thankyou to all the ladies at Dandie Crafts in Wales where Mark and I visited last weekend.  We had a fabulous time and were made soooooooo welcome.  I have been asked back in November so looking forward to that.  Thankyou to Anna for the fabulous cakes, move over Mary Berry Anna is here!! 

Painting on Parchment with Maria Maidment today so really looking forward to this.
I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend and you can join in the Challenge so that there are lots of entries for me to choose from on Friday.
Please pop over to the Allsorts Blog ( to check out my fellow DT members and their gorgeous designs.
Thankyou so much for taking the time to pop in,
take care and hope to see you soon.

Bye for now

  1. Just my cup of Earl Grey! Beautiful card Jo x

  2. Gorgeous card Jo, clever idea to mask the image and use again x

  3. What better than very expensive looking china for afternoon tea Jo, all very English and elegant.

    My shame has been saved, several people have suggested my ladies are drinking iced tea from long glasses, now why didn't I think of that I wonder ?

    Have a good weekend and thanks for a great theme this week.

  7. In July, 2010 dexter missouri businesses police, based on complaints of horses starving and neglected, arrived at
    an area behind Bosque River Apartments and found 11 horses in muddy pens with no food or water.

    It depends on a lot of cash up front, but they did remain at a fixed
    distance and moved at the same level in the sky. My 3
    daughters have attended the local schools and all are currently in or accepted into top Universities in the country.

  9. Hi Jo
    Just found your blog and had a look its fab!
    Having seen you on create and craft doing your Christmas spellbinders shows. I won a creation made by you but feel a little sad that your friend Anne didn't. So sorry about that.
    Love this card you've made the way you've layered the stamp with some masking off, the card is stunning Jo. I will be back to check out your blog again.
    Best wishes Katie-Louise sweetlove

  10. Masking and restamping this card makes it look fab. I love the two of them together...Great monochromatic card.
