Cup of tea card

Hi lovely blogging friends, how are you all today ?
I think Autumn has started here, a definite nip in the
 air now.
Here is this week's 'Less is More' card from me.
It's one layer card week and the theme is....
I used a digi I found in my stash from BeyondTheFringe
 called 'Stacked cups'. Ideal I thought as I do love a nice 
cuppa, Earl Grey to be exact ! I also like a nice Cappuccino
 too (partial to a freebie from Waitrose) but going with 
tea for today here I think.
I do love pretty little tea cups, esp. with roses on. I have
 some very old ones I inherited but mostly tea sets
 which I don't use.
Although  I love them I plan on selling most and getting
 just odd  pretty ones I love.I have a beautiful cabinet to
 put them in filled with all sorts of inherited bits and
 pieces atm.
 Nice to be able to have our own things in it I think now.
My OH loves Royal Worcester but it has got so expensive
now as the Japanese love it too it seems.
Ooops sorry... I seem to have gone off on a tangent lol.
Here is my card anyway........well after this quick moan :)
ps. Handy hint ! just to add, anyone thinking about buying a new
toilet or bathroom suite. Make sure you buy a toilet with a 
NORMAL shaped seat. We just had to replace ours
 ( just the seat) ......£162.46.......yikes!
I know......I know ,but had no choice in the end. Cheap one
 we thought  would fit...didn't and  then broke. We had
 already thrown the  manky hinges away so couldn't put
 old ones back.
 New hinges we bought and tried didn't fit so.................:(

  12. Super cute ! Those cups are so adorable :)

  13. SUCH a perfect LIM card, again, Vee! Your sweet stack of teacups is so perfect with the lined partial frame around your sediment! Thanks for sharing the tip on the toilet lid! Hugs, Darnell

    Whatever shape was the loo seat?! New meaning to 'bog standard' here I think hee hee

  15. Hi Viv loving the stack of beautifully coloured cups, they look 3D with the shadow:) has to be Yorkshire tea for me I'm afraid I can't get near Earl Grey for the perfume. Jim bought me one by mistake at the airport last year, he obviously misheard, didn't make a good start to our trip!!! ;0)
    I'm intrigued to know what strange shape your toilet is :0)

    Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
