Out for coffee

Today I am  'Out and About'....... for Art Journal Journey

and joining friends for a  cuppa over at

where we are made very welcome  to share a drinks related post..

My digital page started its out with one of my colouring in pages.
I would like to do more hand colouring as it is so relaxing, but often my grip isn't always that good.
However as long as there is a cuppa close to hand, I am happy finishing journal pages on the computer.

In the page I have  friends meeting in town for a coffee, or tea , although I think they would much prefer sitting down to a table than balancing their cups on a lump of concrete.
We all know that when we have  a good gossip ,  it doesn't really matter where we are or what is happening around us, its being with the
  friend that matters most.
But no matter where you meet, 
 outside or  here in our virtual computer world,
 there is nothing to compare with friendships old and new.
Friends are the family we can choose for ourselves.

I am also adding a reminder that the current theme over at
 Try it on Tuesdays is  ' Time for Tea.'  .... my ladies are out enjoying  their favourite brew.

Thank you for calling in today, you are very welcome.
Happy T Day everyone.

  18. This is a wonderful entry for T this week. It's a perfect day out with true friends, and the message is loud and clear. This sounds like a wonderful coloring book, even though I would never have the grip to complete even one page. I simply adore how you combined the coloring with the digital that I admire so much. Thanks for sharing this wonderful AJJ entry with us for T this Tuesday.
