Cup of Tea (while waiting anybody??)

Welcome.

 I thought I would share this card while I am waiting...


I am only waiting for confirmation of details now 

Well that's what I thought - looks as though they are keeping up the great track record of messing up, and I now don't know where I stand.

Finally - a communication breakthrough - maintenance is now booked in a private hospital for the 17th September.

I was playing with my spellbinder cups dies, and decided to create a stack.


I mounted these on an embossed card which I had rubbed distress ink over.


I then added the hand died seam binding and lace to simulate a table and cloth.

The sentiment was stamped, cut and sponged before being attached with a deep pink ribbon


The final details were the pearls, added after the card was mounted onto a deep pink base.

I am linking this to:
