Keep Calm and Put the Kettle On




A very blustery Autumn May day today - perfect really..... with the sun shining through my craft room window in the early morning and I'm using this quiet time to catch up on some postings.  
I have a digital image coloured with Distress Inks in purple shades and the sentiment just right for now - a cup of tea to help me think.  I chose to make a lilac card base and dry embossed the front with a criss-cross EF , then to finish a tie of gingham ribbon.  I am playing along with The Flower Challenge #32 - Embossing (heat or dry), also Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop and as the image is from Stamplorations - adding to their Never Ending Anything Goes challenge.  Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy card making and enjoy a cuppa.
