Auntie Sue's Thank You

When we were in England earlier this month, we spent the day in Yorkshire with my Auntie Sue, Uncle Richard and cousin, Kate. Sue is my mum's sister and we all LOVE going to see her, there's always bustling in the kitchen, home made cakes and chutneys and the teapot is always full of Yorkshire Tea (what else?). Our visit was no exception, she laid on a fabulous spread for us all and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. 

This new stamp set (available from the Seasonal Catalogue on 1st August) "Perfectly Preserved" really reminds me of my Grannie, and mum & Auntie Sue who are a chip off the old block, so to speak. There are always home made jams and chutneys on the go in their kitchens ... so the perfect 'thank you' for Auntie Sue was this card. I hope she loves it! All the inspiration was taken from the card in the catalogue (p. 29). I'd better get it straight into the post today, it takes a week to get home!
