What?? Limit my coffee??

Yes folks...last week I had some interesting news...apparently I need to watch my caffine intake!! Now I wouldn't say that I'm a coffee addict, I definitly don't drink ten cups a day...but I do love a good cup of coffee or tea or green tea (you should have seen the doctor's face when I said I drink all three!!). I've been having blood pressure isues for a while now and finally the doctor has issued me with some lifesytle changes to make...lucky me!! I've also been told that decaffinated versions of drink aren't that good for me either....I should be drinking naturally caffine free stuff.....lots of fruit tea for me then!!

So inspired by this wonderful news I came up with this card...

The lovely sketch can be found over at Crazy 4 Challenges this I don't normally like circles, but I really loved this sketch! My colours of soft pinks came from the pink challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies and cool colours challenge at DYSU.

Finally Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has a food and drink challenge and Simon Says Stamp challenge has a fruity challenge....I've opted for this cute LOTV teatime image, coupled with the gorgeous cherry backing paper. This image always reminds me of me and my sister...especially since we do love an afternoon tea! This is us at a vintage event....what do you think??

Talking of tea...we have our second Blooming Tea Party for Marie Curie next Saturday....can we all start doing our sunshine dances as I don't think its going to be much fun in mum's garden if it keeps raining like this!!

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

I'm a coffee addict and I think I would cry if the doc told me I had to watch my intake lol.
