Wow - what an amazing weekend!

Hello there,

I hope you are well and have had a lovely week.

I'm here with a new challenge from My Time to Craft, but before I tell you about that I just wanted to share with you what I got up to last weekend!

On Saturday I indulged in the most wonderful afternoon tea - it has a science theme, which sounds a bit odd....but take a look...its pretty cool....

Science afternoon tea - Ampersand Hotel

Everything looked fantastic, but also tasted amazing! For more photos and the whole review, pop by my afternoon tea blog!

On Sunday I went to the Country 2 Country festival at the O2 in London. Now, its a little known fact that I really enjoy country music (having been brought up listening to it!), and I am particularly passionate about Brad Paisley - who happened to be headlining on Sunday!

I had amazing seats...just 8 rows from the front, here is my view.....


The concert was amazing....Brad was on form and I sung my heart out! But the fun didn't stop there! On Monday evening I was lucky enough to attend a special BBC recording with Brad at the Radio Theatre in the BBC Broadcasting House. It was two amazing hours of Brad and three of his songwriters, talking about the songs and singing! This time I was just four rows from the front.....


The lady who I think was sitting behind me took this fab photo! I still can't believe I was lucky enough to be part of this recording, it was definitely the highlight of all my musical experiences so far!

Anyway, back to the business at hand....and this week I have some sad news as I have decided to step down from the My Time to Craft DT.....I have been part of this fab DT for ages now, and its been a wonderful experience...but life is getting in the way at the moment and unfortunately something has to give. I'm sad to make this move, and would like to thank Shell and the lovely DT ladies for all their support.

So, without further ado....my last challenge over at My Time to Craft is "Mothers Day or Special Lady". As you know I love afternoon tea and so does my mum...so this seemed like an appropriate theme for my card....


I've gone with a lovely fresh green for this card, adding a splash of detail with my art deco inspired backing paper. My image is printed and then I have added a hint of colour with my Promarkers.

For more inspiration pop by the My Time to Craft challenge blog and take a peek at all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week.

I hope you have fun with this challenge!

Thanks for popping by today,

That science tea is fabulous, the wee cherub wants one of those now!! Think that's a bit beyond my capabilities though. Was a fabulous weekend indeed although I noticed there was no mention of that batty woman you also met ;-)

Gorgeous card, love the design you've given the crockery xx
