Tea and TioT's

First of all a reminder for the current challenge theme over at
which is Sun/Moon/Stars.
There is still another week for you to call in and join us.
Today I have taken a step into thinking about Christmas cards.
This is a digital one which could be printed out or send by email.


I would like to say  thankyou to  everyone who left us good wishes on Saturday.
We did have a lovely day and I have made a journal spread
 in my   digital/hybrid  journal to remember the occasion spent with our family.
The base used is napkins torn and stuck down across the journal pages.
There was lots of laughter, too much food, a few glasses of wine and many cups of tea and coffee..
The day ended with an Indian Banquet meal . Solomons is an authentic Indian restaurant
 and take my word for it the food is delicious.  
Sunday was a day for recovering and getting back to normality.

Now I am off to visit with friends at......
where T stands for Tuesdays

A  piece of Victoria sponge with  a filling of raspberry jam and butter icing.,
together with a cup of refreshing tea, is a  very welcome treat  for me.
We don't normally have cake through the week
 as I have no will power  to have just a small piece.
Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are very welcome to join me with my tea time treat.


  1. Glad you had such a great anniversary and were able to celebrate. Love the journal page you made, and the pretty piece for TIOT. Could I have some coffee with my Victoria sponge, please! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

    1. You would be no problem to have coffee with your cake Valerie.

  2. What a gorgeous Winter scene card Yvonne, love the added stars and moon! What a sweet layout you made for your special Anniversary, sounds like it was a wonderful day. The sponge cake looks yummy!!

  3. Your winter scene is beautiful, and I'm glad you reminded me about the challenge at TIOT. That cake looks so yummy! I love cake and tea. Now I will probably want some cake all day-because I can have my cup of tea as soon as I get to work. Happy T day Yvonne. Hugs-Erika

  4. I adore that gorgeous TioT winter card with the partial moon showing. It's a true gem. I'll be joining you tomorrow with my entry.

    You are so blessed to have such a loving home and a wonderful husband. I'm still impressed with the big 5 oh! Those are my favorite color roses, too. That was a great LO you created with the bubbly and all the wonderful other memories that you shared that day.

    I've not heard of Victoria sponge cake, but it sounds decadent and I would love to try it. Looks to me like you restrained more than I would have. It's a gorgeous setting with the roses and tea, too.

    Thanks for sharing your amazing art and tea with us for T this Tuesday. It was a wonderful tribute.

  5. I'm loving your winter scene with the beautiful moon and stars!

    Pleased to hear you had a fabulous anniversary and celebrations Yvonne.
    So if you don't normally have cake during the week, I guess there's no point asking you to join me with a slice of 'ginger and kahlua' cake Dave made and I am about have with a cuppa ???

    You have created a lovely collage from your celebration weekend which sounds memorable indeed!.
    Yes on the dangers of having cake in the house :-)
    Your Victoria Sponge (Love the name!) looks tempting and delicious.
    Happy T Day oxo

  24. Your collage is a great way to remember a wonderful weekend. I think I would enjoy a piece of that cake. I would just have to have one slice and then have someone remove it from the vicinity though or else I'd be nibbling all day.
