Tea and Sympathy

Hello sweet friends ...
I've been closely following the news on hurricane Sandy ... and I confess to shedding tears as I took in the devastation. My heart goes out to all of you that have been affected. I have many blog friends out that way and one of my dearest friends ... someone I grew up with here in the UK ... lives in New Jersey 
... I hope and pray you are all ok...

Wednesday as always is a new challenge at Papercraft Star and this week the challenge is 
A Warm Beverage
This is your inspiration photo

I made a little card and gift for one of the ladies at church who is not feeling too well - 
Why not grab a cup of your favourite beverage and relax for a moment whilst I show you ...

The beautiful tea cup and saucer image came from a notelet ... I just scanned it in 

I used some of the Aida fabric which I frayed and stitched the image straight on to it with some sparkly lace either side ... The sentiment was computer generated
The butterflies are my favourite digital ones and you can see some Perfect Pearls both on the butterflies and the tea cup

The little bag was made much the same ... using the Aida fabric and a doily under the image
As you can see I added a little glassine bag with some speciality tea bags tucked inside

I know my team mates have made some lovely cards to inspire you ... So I hope you will take a minute to visit the Blog and join us this week

 For those of you who celebrate Halloween ... I hope you have a wonderful time ... 

Thank you so much for visiting today ...
Keeping you in my thoughts and my prayers
