My Tea Drinking Buddy

Hilary and I go way back ... I mean WAY back! I interviewed her for a temp position when I worked in Derbyshire years ago and from the moment we sat in that office, we just became firm friends. I think it was around 1991 or 1992, around the time my niece Sophie was born. We've been through A LOT together, I even did my pregnancy test on our lunch break at her house (over a cup of tea of course!). So she was the very first person to know that Sarah was on the way. We are the original Yorkshire Tea drinking buddies and I miss seeing her and swapping daily news with her. BUT, I can't believe I didn't get her birthday card made and sent off in time. How awful is that? I promised her I'd make something special and post it asap ... and of course, the new SU Morning Cup set fits our friendship to a tea (to a tea ... get it? Tea Hee!). Hil ~ this is on its way to Duffield!



The card was made using a sketch from the blog, Clean & Simple, it's a really easy one to use and I love its simplicity.
