More tea vicar?

We really do say that in our house! Well Phil does more than me because I have to be really dying of thirst before I will stir myself (and the pot) to make one. Dunno why.
Lazy.
is probably the best answer.
He went out bright and early this morning bird watching.
I have had
1 cup of tea.
Am I thirsty?
Yes.
(pause to get some water as I am out soon and so won't have time to wait for optimum tea drinking time)
that's better.

Anyway I have revealed one of my foibles just in order to share the Get Funky challenge for this month. Enfys chose the theme
Shaped Cards
and do you know what I have discovered?
they are truly not my thang.
I was supposed to have got this done by last night and failed - the worst part of it being that the others truly rocked the challenge. Go and see and bow down before their awesomeness!
Enough pity party - here is my effortI printed two Dreams Come True Delightful Fun patterns onto one sheet of A4 card which I folded in half. I used a tea pot digi image from the same CD as a guide (it would have been a bit small if I had used it as a template) and kinda worked from there. I think it will look a little better with the inside inked too.

I made a little pocket on the inside to put a tea bag in and also so I could do this
I do love the way the patterns co-ordinate. Love that brown check one in particular at the moment. Anyway do go and share love with the others - and why not try the challenge yourself - just use a Funky Hand product and you could win a £20 voucher!

Hi Lythan

Your Funky Teapot is brilliant and such a great idea - and I love the hidden message very much.

Have a great Bank Holiday break - put your feet up and get lots more cups of tea made for you LOL!!!.
