Just her cup of tea - Feminine and Fancy too!

Mother's Day has been and gone so I can post the card I made for my MIL...
...not that she looks at this blog, but it doesn't seem right to show it before the occasion! ;)
A combination of Papertry Ink for the cups and "tea time" cartouche...Stampers Anonymous for the scroll work...and Chocolate Baroque for the beautiful's one of my all time favourites :)

We bought her a lovely floaty scarf from the National Trust shop at Buckland Abbey.

The tithe barn...huge it was too!

Modern reworked plaster ceiling...just fab!

It's quite remarkable to think that Sir Francis Drake actually walked around this can't really say lived here as he spent so much time on the high seas!!! Is it any wonder both his marriages did not produce an heir!!!!?

A beautiful old vellum of Gregorian chant music.

I made a box to gift the scarf in...I might at last have got the gist of what the measurement differences ought to be for the top and bottom! Ha ha!
(Cut the bottom piece 2mm less than the top...i.e. Top 40x25 say, so bottom 38x23....that's if your card is not all that thick!)...well it worked for me in this instance. :)

Thanks for looking and MIL adored her scarf :)

Linking this card to Try it on Tuesday for this fornight's "Feminine and Fancy" challenge
