Fancy a cuppa week - Chris and Neil

A couple of more cards today... very different, still with the Cuppa in mind, and both would be fantastic to receive. 
Chris Dark used the Crafty Individual images (doesn't that cupcake look yummy?)
As for Neil, he included a tea bag in his card. Wonderful idea for a friend who is far away and you can only meet on the phone.. 
What do you think?

Sometimes, when a friend is not close enough to visit you and you miss the good old natters over a cuppa; why not send them this card?
Then you can make a cuppa together and chat on the phone for a bit?

I used Distress Stains for the background, laying the colours in stripes across and up and down. Then I laid a couple of the Tando masks onto it and spritzed with water to create more interest.
I stamped the head and sentiment onto card and cut out. I stamped the "hair" onto the card with Archival Ink and coloured it with Distress Markers as well as the face.

Inside it's simple, a teabag and the sentiment.
