Tea on Tuesday

It's a snowy day in the Cariboo  :)  There's a good inch on my railing.

I'm having Pumpkin Spice this morning.   It's not as spicy as I thought it would be, more mellow. 

I had to take a picture of all the pretty mugs I bought at the Lions Christmas rummage sale on the weekend. I'm sorry the photos are not to good, I think the battery on my camera needs charging or maybe it's me :)

And I finished another couple of cards.  I just need to make two more to send off for Chrismas.  This first one has a digital image called the Giving Angel, from Crafts and Me.  I've cut the image out and put her on velvety fabric paper, that I've had forever--hoarding!

'Think Snow' is one inch printed pieces put together on cardstock and run through the cuttlebug.   A cyber friend from Splitcoast did this, but hers looked more like a quilt--which I was going for   :)      The card is a tri-fold, almost 6x6.

Now, this beautiful butterfly--the picture does not do it justice--a friend bought an old dress at the reuse center because she knew I would LOVE this little jem.  I'm going to put it on a canvas, it's about 5.5 square and is just gorgeous irl  :) 

Here is my poor Mandevilla, reaching for the light, still blooming.  And there is that snow coming down.  A good day to drink tea and craft  :)

Feel free to join us for tea or whatever, start with the list from Kimmies site http://artinredwagons.blogspot.com/

Everyone is welcome, thanks for dropping by  :)  


  1. And I know this is not your first snowfall either! It definitely does look like a good day to stay warm indoors! Your cards are beautiful Nancy .... Whoever ends up being the glad recipient of these will have a keepsake for years to come :)

    Happy Tuesday!

  2. Lovely cards. I agree with Kimmie, these are cards to keep for years. Happy tea day and lovely seasonal mugs. I brouhgt one of mine out too.

  3. I was by on Tuesday, but somehow my comment didn't get posted. For that I apologize. I must have been in a hurry because I had to get to the car tag office.

    I remember saying I loved your Mandevilla, which contrasts nicely against the snow. Your cards are adorable, and I like the sentiment on the Let it Snow one. I would not have enough room for all those Christmas mugs. Yours all have very festive designs.

  4. Your cards are gorgeous. I love the angel one, but then again I love angels.
