Tea time, or time for tea

This week's challenge at Less is More is a one-layer card, with the theme of Beverage.  Like most adults, I enjoy a glass of wine at dinner time, but I've often thought that if push came to shove, I would find it more difficult to give up drinking tea, than I would wine!  With this in mind, I have chosen to feature tea as my beverage for this challenge, and am using images from the set, TEArrific, by Janes's Doodles.  This is a new company to me, but in my two orders with Jane, I have found her to offer extremely good service.  I look forward to finding more goodies at her site in the future.

I must also say I am indebted to Chrissie for her tip on how to print a sentiment in a desired position - it worked for me!  You can find her tip here.  I am running an old version of Word, and found I had to make the zoom at 145% but the method was the same.

As I am using brand new 'schtuff', I will enter this card into Darnell's challenge to use 'never-before-used-schtuff'.  Darnell is an incredibly generous card maker and blogger, who visited my blog recently, so of course I visited hers (I had done so 'ages' ago, but got caught up with 'schtuff' and didn't call back as frequently as I should have).  I will try to remedy this oversight, and visit regularly - why don't you take a look - I promise you'll love what you see there.

  7. Beautiful card. I saw this featured on Jane's site didn't realise the Ann was referring to you. Congratulations and Well done.
    I'd be hard pressed to give up my cuppa as well even though I do enjoy a drop of wine. :)
