T(ea) on Tuesday

I am joining Elizabeth and Bleubeard for T on Tuesday with a cup of tea... nothing fancy, just plain old breakfast tea.
When I was shopping last week I found this black tin with the Keep Calm logo on it and picked it up to go with the one the one from Bridget in Australia.  The Christmas tree tin is a revolving music box shortbread biscuit tin I got in Marks and Spencers for half price... gotta love a bargain!
I made these two mug rugs for a friend for Crimbo... love that material, perfect for T on Tuesday!
Tree is up and I am ready for Christmas.... well, nearly ready for Christmas.... will be soon... sort of... mayb.... ;)
Will be around to visit the other T ladies after breakfast.....

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!
