Patchwork Quilt effect card

There's no taste like home

Inside pockets for recipes and teabag envelopes
I wrote a poem for this card, but couldn't get it to rhyme, so asked my lovely crafty friend Janyce Cotterill to have a look at it for me and this is what she came up with,
we used her poem for the card,

I heard you were missing home
And some of your favourite treats
Like apple tart and scones
And a proper cup of tea,
So I made you this little card,
With some Irish recipes
And hope you’ll enjoy making them.
For everyone to eat.
But cake on its own is not quite the same
As when its served with a tea.
so there's a surprise in the pockets
have a look and see
a few Lyons teabags 
now that's a proper 
Cup of Tea.

By Yvonne Tune

Far away and missing home,
You dream of tea time treats,
Like apple tart, your favourite scones,
Now they are hard to beat!
So in this card are recipes,
That you can bake today,
To have a little taste of home,
Although you're far away,
So boil the kettle, make a brew,
And settle down to see,
That life is good and can taste grand,
With cake and a cup of tea!

I found the inspiration for this card on Face book HERE
Miranda is probably one of the most talented ladies I follow, and her work is so inspirational, I don't have the things she has, but adapt the projects to the items I have in my craft
