Keep calm and drink tea


I'm back with my second post for today. Popped out to Sainsburys this morning and then have been cracking on in my craftroom and have made 9 cards so far. No colouring, that's my treat this evening, so love my colouring, but have been making cards with pre-coloured digis like this one. The keep calm cards are so popular that I am making several of these. I know some people would make a batch all the same but I like to make every one different even if it just the backing papers. I have used 2 digis from Pink Gem, Papermania Portobello Road papers and some card candi. I made the bunting out of scraps from the paper pad and some navy card.
