   I would like to thank Janyce Cotterill for sorting my poem for me for this card,

   You can find Janyce on pinterest. And craftsuprint.

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!
