"The Tilted Teapot"

Hello Blog friends, I really can not believe that we have had fantastic weather over the weekend.   For us that is a whole week of very Spring like days.  There are Snowdrops and Crocus in abundance all over the place, it is beautiful.   I do hope you all have had the same, it makes you feel so much better.  When you meet people they "smile".   If any of you are feeling a bit poorly I send you a big HUG and hope you feel better soon.
Day 1 & 2 went very well at the  "The Tilted Teapot" tearoom.  John, Thomas and I went along on Saturday approx 10.30am.  There were 3 sets of 2 people having coffee and cake.  They were new faces, not friends who had popped in to see what it was like.  When we were there some other friends did come as well as some more new customers.  Elaine text. me Saturday and this evening to tell me they had done very well and are delighted.  Having a good start always helps, she said it will probably not be busy during the week.  I really don`t know, there is not anywhere to stop for coffee between Perth and Coupar Angus (20miles)   Even then you have to go off the bypass, the coffee shop is in the bakers and only 3 tables.
My card is the one I made and we took along with some flowers for opening their new venture.  

Base card is Centura Pearl cut using the largest Die in Spellbinder Circles one set
Some backing paper cut using next Die down in the set
House mouse image die cut using the next Die down in the set
Butterfly and Teapot charms from my stash
I cut a Teabag from a big teabag and re-assembled it
Added some bakers twine a "The Tilted Teapot" tag 

That`s it for today 
Hopefully now I have a little more time I will get back to some crafting
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate you stopping to look
