Honey for tea

My children have been nagging me for ages to start a blog, and then Tracie at DCM also suggested it, so here I am, in fear and trepidation as technology is not my forte.

So here goes: Honey for tea.
This is the challenge set by DCM

This week it's me (Kathy) setting the dare and I'd like you to make a card with a theme of FOOD!
So let's mull this one over.......You could make an invitation to a barbecue, dinner party, picnic, kids party etcIt could feature a recipe, ingredients, utensils, cookery quotations, poems or rhymes....It could have food depicted on it eg cupcake, CHOCOLATE, bowl of fruit , CHOCOLATE, sausages, CHOCOLATE,.....birthday cake....Hey, it could even have real food stuck on it.....OK, maybe long as it's clearly got a foodie theme it's allowed.

The quote is taken from The Old Vicarage, Grantchester, by Rupert Brooke. This was one of my set poems for Eng Lit O Level, but I only remember these last 2 lines (It was a long time ago!!)

Materials used:

Inks: ecoline yellow and brown, versamark pen

Stamps: Digistamp created from a photo of Rupert Brooke, a photo of a honeycomb, and typed poem, honeycomb from Backgrounds by Invoke Arts, cube by Stampington, Scripts and timepieces by elusive images.

Other items: blue & black paper, gold EP, Prima flower, papermania brad
