Cuppa time

Hi there , Welcome to my room .
Lot cooler in Adelaide today .
Thank you for calling in  . Love it when you leave kind words too . I read them all .
Thank you also and welcome to some new followers . I hope you enjoy browsing my simple creations and that  we see each other often .
I am still trying to use up my stash of craft bits . My new year resolution is to keep a record of product names or at least tear tops off packaging and keeping it with bag of whatever it is .
What happens is that some  packaging is quite flimsy and tears once opened and closed a few times so I put everything into resealable bags .
The problem now is that I have many part bags of diecut images and embelishments that have no name . And another of my resolutions is to use up my stash before buying more .
I also have a stash of cards made up that I was not happy with ..thought that they needed something more .
This is such a card .
It had a brown panel with sentiment at base .
too plain I thought .
So here I have added some diecuts .A stack of  cups and a tea/coffee pot

And for the inside

Really happy with the touch up .
Hope you like the ' new card '.

                                           Just a reminder now about the Kraftyhands  "New Beginnings "challenge for January.
There is a corker of a prize ! Worth a visit to see ..

                                                                My thought for today

                                                 Far and away the best prize
                                                that life has to offer is the chance
                                                  to work hard at work worth doing.

                         Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

It is a lovely card now... the teacups look so sweet all stacked up one on top of another. The teapot is a perfect addition and the flowers and sentiment add much charm.

Hi Shirley-Anne
Your card is beautiful! Love the teapot and tea british! a few biscuits would go down well with it too (LOL)
Hope you get organized soon. I have the same problems but most of us probably do (LOL)

I really like this card especially those teacups down the side. What a great idea going through doing those cards you aren't quite happy with.
