A "cuppa" for a faraway friend

I'm sharing this "cuppa" (tea) with a faraway friend.  It's whatever kind of tea you would like it to be and it comes with lots of love.  Merry Christmas to Tracey and her family - sent with lots of love to someone who most always finds something to laugh about even when times are tough.  I even took the opportunity to play with my new metallic PanPastels.  So a little shimmer and glimmer with the love.
