Tea Time Cards

Hello all!  Hope you're all enjoying a lovely weekend - however you choose to spend it.  I really hope to be able to catch up on a bit of visiting in Craftyblogland!  I've got a quick sneak peek for you today for some cards - yes, cards - over at The Artistic Stamper.


I've been at the tea and coffee again - purely for crafting purposes, you understand - so do hop over to see some of the results at Artistic Stamper.  Have a lovely Sunday!

Tea is quiet, and our thirst for tea is never far from our craving for beauty.
James Norwood Pratt

And another line from the same poem as yesterday's orchard thoughts...
I intend to learn how to make coffee, at least as well
As the Portuguese lay-sister in the kitchen
You can read the whole thing here - it's wonderful!

Stunning cards very CAS in design yet so vintage in colour, love them!

Would have used the smaller tag to add a name/address to the envelope but like your idea very much.

Fab inspiration TY:-) xxx

Off to check them out...sorry haven't been by in a while. Life is too busy with the gardens and the lake...and rushing back and forth between the house and there.

In between I am lazing by the pool having a cold drink!

Love the quote and popped over and read the whole thing. Your blog with your wonderful quotes always reminds me of when I was younger. I used to love to hand pick quotes for each person at the holiday supper table. Such fun matching the perfect quote to each person!
