bee happy - coffee (or in my case tea) and cards with Deb and Celeste


Hello. I'm so excited about my blog post today. Let me explain! 
A while back I met a lovely lady called Debra through a snail mail facebook group called Love Notes (folks swap postcards - but that's a whole other story). 
Debs and I started to exchange happy mail every few months and have become firm online friends. Debs and her friend Celeste do a monthly blog collaboration called Coffee and Cards and I'm thrilled to be joining them this month. 

We used this mood board as inspiration for our cards - 


For my card I stamped, coloured and fussy cut my 'bee costume' Penny Black stamp. I used ZIG real brush pens to colour. I die cut the daisies, sun and clouds. The sentiment is stamped and then cut unevenly ( I used to do that a lot with sentiments so it's a bit of a blast from the past).


Now, as part of the blog post,  Debs and Celeste always share which fancy coffee they are drinking. I do like coffee but I'm really just a plain latte girl! I thought that might be a little bit boring so I'm having a 'Mojitea' in my favourite 'button' mug. It says it's a refreshing blend of green tea, peppermint and lime. To be honest the jury is still out - where's my Scottish Blend?


I'd love it if you popped on over and said hi to Debs and Celeste
They will have gorgeous cards to share and, I'm sure, some yummy sounding coffee!
