What a brilliant weekend!

Hello campers! I hope you are well and have had a lovely weekend!

My weekend has been every bit as good as I hoped it would be (I was a tad bit worried that I would be let down in all my excitment!!).

On Saturday, Lorna, Becca and myself got dressed up and went to the Berkley for a Pret a Portea. This is what we ate....

 
It looked amazing and tasted just as good! We treated ourselves to a glass of bubbles and enjoyed delicious sandwhiches and tasting spoons before starting on the sweet goodies! The service was amazing, everyone was so friendly and the food kept on coming! We had a wonderful afternoon!
 
 
Then today the three of us visited the Festival of Vintage at Epsom Downs race course....as some of you will know, I have a bit of a soft spot for anything vintage! We wandered around the fab stalls selling everything from clothes and hats to homewares and recordplayers. I bought myself a lovely full length winter coat and a cute knitted jumper, Lorna bought a brilliant evening dress for her Birthday in December and Becca added to her brooch collection....and bought her first item of vinatge clothing!
 
There was also fashions shows, live music and dancing....it was brilliant!
 
 
Here I am posing in my new living room! Hee, hee!
 
Soooo....after all this excitment I decided to make a simple card!
 
 
Told you it was simple!
 
I love this stamp, but its rather large and I rarely use it. However, I thought it would probably work for a clean and simple card where I wanted the image to be the main focus! I've stamped both the image and the sentiment and coloured the image with my Promarkers.
 
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Passion for Promarkers - Clean and Simple
Allsorts - inspired by a song - "These Boots are Made for Walking"
Crazy 4 Challenges - thank you card or thanks giving card
 
Pop by all these challenge blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week!
 
Thanks for popping by today and thank you for all your lovely comments!

Ooooh great piccies Wedgie - that afternoon tea looks just amazing.

Great CAS card as well - I've got a couple of large stamps that I'm never quite sure what to do with either. They end up languishing at the bottom of my drawers.
