A Nice Cup Of Tea!

Ok, so I might not be the world's best nurse (although I'm pleased to report that my patient is feeling a bit better despite my efforts), but I can make a decent cup of tea. I have to confess though that I wasn't a huge fan of tea until I came to live in France... then the Brit in me kicked in!

My (french) friend visited me this week with her little girl. We were chatting (in french) and looking through some old photos and I came across one of me in my school uniform. I explained that in the UK kids wear uniforms to school (unlike in France). My friend's little girl looked puzzled, so I asked what was wrong... she said "Were you English when you were little?"... too cute!

Ok, we have a new challenge this fortnight at Di's Digi Designs Challenge blog, FALL COLOURS, so any autumnal colours will do just fine! I've created my card using this really cute teddy digi stamp from Di's Digi Downloads called Tea Cup Teddy, isn't she gorgeous? I've kept my card fairly simple. I wanted to keep a lot of the kraft card visible and the card to be unclutterd, the image is so cute I didn't want to distract from it. 

We are lucky to have a generous sponsor this fortnight which is Sweet Stamps. Please drop by the challenge blog to find out more details about the challenge, our sponsor and to see the lovely creations the Design Team have made! Oh and thanks so much for your visit here today! xx

I'd like to enter my card into the challenge at:
Heck of a challenge - 50 Shades of Autumn

Supplies:
Image - Tea Cup Teddy (Di's Digi Downloads)
Colouring - Promarkers
Sentiment - PC
