Friends Teacups

There's nothing better than a cuppa with friends ... unless its a glass of wine!  And that's one of the reasons tea is called the cup of cheer, it warms the heart and makes you smile. 

Sometimes my daughter (who lives a couple of hours away) and I have a cuppa together on the phone, just like we would if we were together.

I diecut the teacups and paper pieced with various toning papers.  I love this smoky-blue-green colour so much, I think I'll paint my room this colour...very French looking with the white.

Die: Poppy Stamps
Sentiment stamps:  Avery Elle
