T for Tuesday

Apart from the day to day mugs, sight of which you often see on my untidy work desk, I have ignored a couple of opportunities to photo nice 'drinking' situations this week - in preference to the drinking and chatting that was being undertaken.  Gruelling ain't it. But in the spirit, if not the reality, of T Tuesday here are two cards I've recently made that sum up the best enhancement for a social situation, if you ask me.  Anyone would think I was banging the teetotal drum, but I'm not.  I just love a daytime meet that involves coffee or tea and cake.  

Hero Arts stamps.  Frame from a nestabilities Labels set.  Lots of Pearl Ex.
Stamps by Woodware, Cuttlebug embossing folder
Which is what got me into the shape that I am, no doubt.  Even when we're on holiday we manage to observe this as a bit of a break from the hard work of erm, being on holiday. Mr D has finally learned to sit and watch the world go by for the at least the time it takes a hot drink to cool and be drunk.  If you're meeting someone, it's something to get on with if you're early, it's a bit of an ice breaker if you arrive together and it's a great break from the everyday.  A little treat. And there's cake. What's not to like. 
If you manage it, share it with us over at Elizabeth's.

Really enjoyed the candles on the cake. You find the cutest ways to decorate and embellish a card without going over the top. Both of these are quite clever, and I like YOU a latte, too.

Thanks for sharing your quirky T inspired cards this Tuesday.

I love a coffee break and am learning to appreciate tea again.

DH on the other hand is trying to learn this ritual described in your post, as he is retired and has tome to tag along with my outings...He has a long way to go...well, maybe he is doing well in the cake department! (I have that one aced).

Great card BTW!!!

I do like a good pun on a card. April has been sadly lacking in coffee dates. The first one of the month is tomorrow! Good job we have memes like this one and Abi's where we can have a virtual cuppa and catch up :o)

Divers and Sundry said...

ooo yes, "What's not to like" indeed lol slow down a bit and catch your breath with a hot cuppa. :)

Linda said...

Krisha said...

Hello and Happy T Day!! WOW, your cards are so sweet and cute! Wishing I could make cards that well, so nice that you can.

Anytime out for coffe/tea/treats is a good one I think.

Have a wonderful day!

Love both of these cards! Fabulous! xx

Helen said...

Had to smile at the slightly cheesy greeting on the top card, but love the bright second one (could be to do with the idea of cake, of course!)

Nancy said...

'and how many candles' :) love that!
Your cards are awesome! And I like cake with anything or nothing at all :) but a cup in my hand becomes part of my hand, alone or in company.
Happy T(ea) Day :)

Hi Julia,

Love your cards. I agree, there's nothing more relaxing than tea and a sweet.

Holidays are hard work, no doubt, so one needs to take a well deserved break!

Hugs,
Kay

Great cards Julia.

I don't get to meet up with friends for coffee & cake as often as I would like but it is such a great way to spend some time.
