Invitation to tea in the bush


Well another weekend gone and a new week ahead. Hope it will be a good one for you all. Firstly a big welcome to some new friends that have joined my blog. It is always lovely to have more friends join, hope you will see something you like and I love to hear from you.

Today's card is an achievement for me, as it is the first one I have cut with my new Cricut. Still trying to learn all about it, but slowly getting there. This is again an entry for Challenges by AR theme "wild Prints". I won this file for the teacup from Creations by AR and decided to make it into a cup of "bush tea", which in South Africa is a very popular tea...Roobos Tea.
I am also entering it into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge..shaped card.
The DP is from a local company, Paper explosion... Safari collection..leopard trail.
The sentiment was computer generated, and the teabag coloured with tea dye ink.
I also have the file for a teapot, but will use that another time.

Enjoy your week, whatever you may be doing

Very clever! Somehow, I think I am a bad South African because I hate Rooibos tea. My mother always made me drink it when I was sick, so the smell makes me feel sick now. LOL
