Time for a Cuppa

tea for twoa


Another Lili of the Valley Sneak Peek for you today, as I said on my last post there are 2 new sets of girl stamps, this is from the second set “Tea and Chat”  and is called “Time for A Cuppa”, these new  Girlie Stamps and the sentiments will be on sale at the NEC from 4th November and on the website from 12th November.


tea for two


Somewhere here in Mums house there is a photo of me when I was about 3 wearing a Turban and Pinafore  helping my Nan doing the washing in an old tin bath  and when I first saw this image it bought back so many memories of my childhood with the best Nan in the world,  we didn’t have much money and no electricity, just gas light and an old copper boiler and wash day was always Monday.  I am sure it was a chore to Nan but to me it was the best time of the week I was allowed to play with Soap and Water and make a mess!!!! I will try to dig out the photo and post it on here.


I have used Copics to colour Rosie, the papers are a Nitwits download, the borders are punched with a Martha Stewart Border Punch, the 10mm Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from Stash and Teapot Charm from Whiff of Joy .  The Sentiment is from the New Sentiments Collection being released at the same time as the Girlie Stamps by Lili of the Valley.

Hi Jac,

I always hated bright green or lime green but whilst doing some samples for Stephanie i used some bright green card and ribbon with baby pink and i loved the contrast and since love greens now especially with pink so i adore this card as i do all your cards, but this one is so, refreshing, bright and cheery!!! love it xxxxx hugs vicky xxxxx

Val said...

This is a reall sweetie. Just love it. Definitely on my list at NEC.

Jacqui - your story reminds me of when I was a child - we were the same - my parents had our house built - no electricity or gas at the time, so it was Tilly lamps, and my mother had a copper for the clothes. We did have a rayburn that heated the water and was used for cooking.

When we finally got electricity Mum was in her element!
