Come round for a cuppa ...

... but don't all arrive at the same time!

This is for Sweet Stamps monthly technique challenge: flip flop card using the tutorial given on Splitcoasters. It's my time to choose the theme for Time to Create for June on Crafts by Carolyn for June, so I'm asking to see something created by following a tutorial.

Mine is a very simple version because time is tight before going away. I used double sided card. I drew pencil lines to indicated where to score and cut which made it easier.

I've used one side of the swing to put my greeting and the other side to put a stamped image - stamps are from Joanna Sheen's willow pattern set. I stamped the cup and saucer first and then masked to put the jug behind. I inked the stamps with memento Paris dusk.

Colours are for:

Bloggers challenge: red, white and blue
Little scrap pieces fun Friday: let's hear it for red, white and blue
