Anyone for tea?

I am loving rediscovering these older Sugar Nellies that have been discontinued (but I believe they are now for sale by Belles & Whistles).  To be honest I had fogotten all about them and some still lie in their bags, uninked, unopened and neglected – me BAD!  But I have had a few requests to make some cards using these stamps so you will be seeing a few more over the coming weeks.

And a peek at the inside.  I struggled with the pics as I took them late last night and could not get the light right so apologies for the next rather yellow pic!
