'Great British Bake Off' Day 3

When I saw this challenge the first thing I thought of was my time spent in Suzicraft with other crafty individuals either at coffee mornings or just a crafting day. Often when we go some of us bake and my contribution is generally cup cakes. This inspired me to make this card as to me it represents Suzicraft, Splodge Away and me- I am affecionately known as 'Tea Bag' as I never refuse a cuppa

Materials needed.
