Cup of Tea

Oh this card gave me awful trouble, I was moving papers around for ages and the whole thing took forever to make and I've no idea why, although after I made this I had a migraine so maybe that was why.
My Hubby and I are lucky that both our Mother's are are still alive although they have some medical problems seeing that they are both in they eighties its not surprising. So my card today will be off to MIL before next weekend.
Of course the image is another Sarah Kay and I think she may become a favourite too, the sketch is from Cute Card Thursday. The papers are My Minds Eye, MFT swirl with some tinky EK success flowers and the sentiment is from Clevercut layered on mats made by the nestabilies with two strips to make a rosette.
It's going to be a beautiful spring day today here in my part of the UK and Hubby has he's gardening togs on.
