Christmas scraps

I have one more card to share with you today. It was created from all those christmas pattern paper scraps on my table corner. Each time when I finish my craft project I leave paper scraps. It's so hard to throw them away. I discovered that patterned paper is like little treasure for me. Do you have same  feeling when you crafting?

Here is my card :

Enjoy your nice evening!

What's Your Tipple

Do you have your favourite drink? I love tea and coffee. Morning tea or afternoon coffee with delicious cake or fresh sandwiches. Cold me old fashion but since I am living in England my tea times are sort of little celebrations. I set up table and enjoying every moment especially when I can meet my dear friends.   
Now, Daring Cardmakers got really fabulous dare this week.

 it's me (Kathy) here with a challenge for you.

 "What's Your Tipple?"
 or alternatively, "I'll Drink to That!"
 is all about the things we like to drink;  Tea, Coffee, Wine, Beer, Drinking Chocolate.....and the bottles, cups, glasses and mugs we use for them too
I love my cappuccinos, but at this time of year it's often a big mug of thick, rich, hot chocolate that hits the spot.  I like to heat the milk using the steamer bit of my cappuccino machine so I can top the mug off with some milky froth...mmmm I think I'll go and make one NOW!

So to recap (and get myself back on-topic) this week I'd like to see lots of drinks and drinking vessels on your card.

Have a lovely Friday and thanks for stopping by!

For Anna and Andrew

Hello my dear friends! Did you have a lovely Christmas break? I spent my pressures Christmas time with my loving husband and with my friends. The weather was terrible rainy and windy so most of the time we were snuggling under blankets in our apartment with cup of hot tea and watching DVDs.
Now, I did a bit crocheting too! These two blue owls I made for Anna and Andrew.


I took my inspiration from Andrew's latest album cover
 The Irresistible Charm Of Baby Owls

Have a wonderful New Year!
