I'm soooo excited!!

Hello there...hope you've had a good week! I am as my post title suggest....SO EXCITED! I have a fab weekend ahead of me...most of it spent with my friend Becca and my sister Lorna. I have been waiting for this weekend to come along for ages!!

Tomorrow I am going to The Berkley hotel in London to experience a Pret a Portea. For those of you who pop by regularly you'll know how much I love an afternoon tea....well a Pret a Portea is amazing! It's inspired by the fashion seasons and features fabulous shoe shaped biscuits and sweet treats in the colours of the seasons. I booked this tea back in May or June (its been so long I can't remember when I actually booked it!!) and I can't wait!

Then on Sunday we are all off to the Festival of Vintage at Epsom race course...a whole day of vintage! There will be shopping, fashion shows, exhibitions, dancing and loads of other things! How exciting!

Watch this space for a post full of cool photos!!

Anyway, while waiting for Joe to come home from work I decided I had time to make a little card....

The weather is most definitley changing at the moment...and hopefully this card captures those wonderful autumn colours that are appearing! I've gone with browns and oranges for this card...along with a stamp that I probably use way too often (but I don't care because I love it!). I've used my corner punch on the image. There is sparkle on that gorgeous floral backing paper and I have added more sparkle to the image.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge - cutting corners
Papertake Weekly - hazy shade of autumn
Pop by all the challenge blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created.
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
