Anyone for tea?

Hi All,

Hope this evening finds you all well and hope that not too many of you have been affected by the appalling weather conditions in the states.  We holidayed in New York in the summer and it's awful to see the devastation that's been caused there.

I've just a quickie card for you tonight, when I saw this week's cue card over at CASology, I was initially struck dumb. Honestly, you ladies certainly know how to get our brain cells working.





Anyhows, I had a quick flash of inspiration and here's my card ...




Teacup stamp was a freebie with Craft Stamper mag, stamped onto DP paper. Embossed 'tablecloth' is Stampin Up Holiday Frame EF.  Sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for popping in, I'm gasping for a cuppa myself, so see you all soon.

Take care

Suze xx

Well, you weren't struck dumb for long, Suze! That card is a perfect representation of the cue card. Your card is the first time I've seen what the new word is this week. They really have started a clever challenge, haven't they? I will have to put my thinking cap on. Now where did I put that thing ...

Sometimes we forget just how elegant a simple card can be in this 'throw everything on the front' culture that continues to sweep the crafting world.

Love your paper piecing and the lovely lacey tablecloth of embossed card.
