Time for Tea........PPA166, PP156



This sweet image is from the set Tea Party. Being a tea drinker I had to have that set for sure! It must be my British heritage that has led me to start and end every day with a cup of tea.  And in times of crisis, illness or just plain gossiping the first thing I do is put the tea kettle on.  My grandmother never said hello when she entered my house - her first words were always "Put the kettle on, luv!"  I'd love to stay and chat some more but there's some whistling coming from my kitchen......



I combined Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge this week with Leanne's wonderful sketch at The Paper Players.

There is nothing better than a nice, warm cup of tea, especially with Grandma's, Mom's and children. This card also is just what the doctor ordered! Love the clean, crisp images and those colors are great! TFS

I recently have taken up with coffee but my true love will always be tea. I am pretty much a purist with tea, usually no flavored ones with milk always. When I so anything else...it is Earl Grey!

Oh, and your card is just so relaxing, so comforting...the colors perfect and the coloring. We are having tea...just because...
