Shabby Tea Room #32

Good Morning All!

Happy wednesday to you.
I had an unexpected day off yesterday. Did I clean out the kitchen cupboards? Clear out the wardrobes? Nah!!!
After a normal mornings housework I got down to some serious crafting. Well what else did you expect???

This is the fabby pic from The Shabby Tea Room  to give us inspiration.
This is my card,
I used cream card for the base.
The DP is by Kameo Cards and is matted onto some chocolate card.
I`ve taken some more of the cream card and run it through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and matted that onto some chocolate card.
I used my Spellbinders Borderbilities Lace die on chocolate card and added it to my central panel.
The sentiment is from Papertreys Autumn Abundance set inked in chestnut onto cream card and cut with a circle nestie. I made a border with a scalloped circle nestie in chocolate.
The flowers are handmade in autumnal colours.

I have some other projects on the go that I will hopefully have finished before the weekend.

Just as an aside I have decided to do a weekly " Helpful Personal Tips" spot. I will explain...
I like to think of myself as a fairly intelligent person but I do do some really stupid things. I have lost count of the times I have greeted my OH with the immortal words " Oh Alan I did a really stupid thing today"
So often in fact that now he just gives me THAT look and shakes his head. Most are things that anyone with an ounce of common sense just wouldn`t do but some are down right dangerous. All will be revealed.
I`ll start with a daft one. Todays " Tip of the day"...
Never clean the toilet whilst wearing a waterfall cardigan!

See what I mean?
