Cuppa, Anyone?

  Just because it's called "Teas Up" doesn't mean we coffee drinkers can't play too, and the newly released paper collection from Funky Hand is too good NOT to get your hands on - whatever your tipple!

The first thing I made with these lovely new papers was a little Gift Box with some herbal tea bags in it - which I "borrowed" from hubby because I don't drink tea hehe
 I might save this and give it to him at C-word Time (will he know they were his teabags already?)
other stash: 
Nesties Die, Fibres, Brown seam binding

Here's a sneak peek at some of what you get in the download:

Next the cards I've been making with the download - all the papers are from the "Teas Up" collection and in this case I printed them on double sided printer paper and 2 designs on each side.
other stash: 
fibres, brass teapot charm
other stash:

other stash: 
Nesties Die, Fibres, Brown seam binding
EK Success Border Punch, brown seam binding

The papers are really lovely and they print beautifully on various different papers and card - at  £3.40 for 24 different designs, including a sentiments sheet and some lettering ones they are a fab price for smething you can use again and again!

I'm off now to watch some Wimbledon along with my lunch and a nice cold drink -it's steamy hot here today - and I bet it'll be roasting hot in SW19.  I went to the tournament a couple of times with my dad - absolutely loved it - we were so lucky and had brilliant weather each time we were there.  One year it was sooooo hot that they ran out of cold drinks and ice lollies!  I don't think I could be bothered with the queueing now though and tbh they are a special "Dad and Daughter days" memory that I hold very dear now he's gone.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you liked what you saw and will come back soon!
