Quintessentially British



Good Morning Peeps, hope you all are all having a lovely bank holiday weekend.

My new set of wheels got an outing Saturday when we spend a lovely couple of hours at a local garden centre, bought a few more shrubs for the garden..................it's a bit like Pandoras Box, we can always find a hole for a dozen or so and still there is room for more. 

I though I would share a couple of samples I made for Stamp Addicts new programme which you can see on Create and Craft this Thursday 10th May at Noon. I have been working with the Wildflower set and this new Time for Tea set, I will share a few from the wildflowers tomorrow.


You can find all the stamp sets on the What's New section of Stamp Addicts web site by clicking on the thumbnail links below.

Have a good day everyone and as always thank you so much for popping in to visit.

Gorgeous card, I especially love the first one, the colours are fantastic, and the image reminds me of a book series called The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly, that image just makes me want to read them all over again :P That blue patterned paper is gorgeous too.

I hope you're enjoying your bank holiday :)

What lovely cards Brenda. The nestie on the blue one is gorgeous and the border too. I have just bought a lovely teapot and teacup that are to be cut on my Cameo. I cna't wait to use them...there's just not enough hours in the day to craft and blog and use lal my goodies lol. The garden nursery sounds like a nice afternoon out. Ours does a lovely cream scone :-P xx

Paula (PEP) said...

Both are superb but the first is my favourite - love those blues & so evocative of the very British blue pottery & chinaware. That blue tea caddy is just perfect. As always your pin is a joy.
Glad you've been out & about.
