T on Tuesday

I am joining Elizabeth for T on Tuesday and showing off my new toy.... a new Tassimo coffee machine and today I am enjoying a Costa caffe latte in my Keep Calm mug that Chris bought me when we were in Brisbane.
I sat last night and made a set of cards, just quick simple ones that can be adapted for lots of different occasions.  They are a present for a friends Mum for Christmas as she loves to send snail mail.
This is a new Sissix die I bought this week so I am giving it a good try out!
Shiny butterflies are very hard to photograph... this looks a lot nice in real life...
Another shiny version... it looks lovely when its sitting on the desk, honest! 
Cut these butterflies from a delicate see through paper and they look like lace now.
So that is me, now need to make them a box or a folder to keep them in... should keep me busy for an hour or two this morning!


  1. Beautiful cards, love all the beautiful butterflies. Have fun with your new coffee maker and enjoy the coffee out of the lovely new mug. Have a good week and happy T day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Lovely stuff Annette, I know a lot of people 'of a certain generation' that really like to post cards and short letters, these are perfect. So glad you're getting over that thing that prevents you going in the craft room because hubby is at home. I have it too, specially in the evenings, so I understand!

  3. Enjoyed seeing your beautiful butterfly cards! I'm sure the box/container you create for them will be equally amazing.

    Ah, you have be wanting a cafe latte, now--about the only kind of coffee I will drink!

    Happy T Day!

  4. Your mug and the new machine look super ...and all this cards are so beautiufl can't hardly choose a favourite- I like them all! beautiful die!
    Happy T-Day!

  5. Happy T-day Annette!
    Beautiful cards and a nice shiny new Tassimo!!! I do enjoy a latte from time to time, and really prefer to make my own too.

  6. I bet that new machine makes fabulous coffee! Love the mug too. Your cards are gorgeous!! I know what you mean about photographing shiny things though-so difficult. Enjoy all that cardmaking and a happy T day!

  7. Googling Tassimo coffee machine..... I've never seen a machine like that, but it looks handy.

    The butterflies are so beautiful. They'll make I hit, I know!

  8. We love our Tassimo - although it is at the caravan so we can't enjoy it all the time - perhaps as well!! I love your cards - the butterflies are beautiful! Chrisx

  9. I love your new toy and the mug is fabulous.
    Lovely cards Annette - such a beautiful gift.

  16. Wow, you lucky gal. What a wonderful way to wake each morning. Now with your tea maker and coffee maker, you are all set for drinks. That latte looks wonderful, too.

    I really like those butterflies. So different from the die Kathy bought one year and I used over and over and over. I really like this one, and the paper is beautiful. You make AMAZING cards.

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful cards and your new coffee maker with us for T this Tuesday.

  17. Oh Annette they are gorgeous!

    Hugs, Neet xx
