"Engagement Congratulations"

Hello Blog friends, hope all is well with you today.
Our weather started out quite miserable first thing this morning but by mid afternoon we had a beautiful day.
Thank you so much for popping by today I really love that you choose to have a look to see what I get up too.  
I had a nice comment for Janice Wallace who commented and told me she does not have a Blog.   Carol Yates I mentioned the other day, she told me she has a Blog but unfortunately I cant get to it.  It is one of these Google ones, that does not link you or should I say maybe it is me just being stupid.  Maggie who goes under the Blog name of French also called in, thank you for that.
Well folks another very busy day in the Tearoom once again.  Managed the coffee machine fine today although I did flood the floor a little bit when I left the Water Urn on filling a Teapot.  I turned to answer Elaine on something, when I looked at my pot, the water was flowing over the top. Just a little bit but there you go, always something.  Other than that everything was just fine.  Lots of nice customers, we managed to have a laugh with most of them  There were 3 older ladies came in, they were a bit grumpy.  We had run out of Carrot Cake    .....   they always have Carrot Cake when they come in.  I told them that maybe they should try something else as all the cakes are really good.  Two of them did have something different but the other only wanted Tea!!!!  You cant please all of the people all of the time!!!!!
My card today is one a friend ordered for her Nephew who got engaged the other week.    I had not a clue what to make. I made two cards this is the one she chose and is delighted.

Base card white 6 x 6
Piece of white card stock, I embossed the centre with a SB Die
Embossed a piece of Kraft Card with a Cuttlebug Folder and cut out a circle using SB Classic Circles Die.    I rubbed it with some Gilding Wax and popped it in the centre
Rose made using SB Blossom Five Die plus some gold cord I found in a box
Computer generated greeting cut into a fishtail mounted on some Kraft Card and added under the rose
I did make a Box using Kraft Card with the centre of the front cut out, sorry forgot to photo that 

That`s it for today thank you so much for calling by today I really appreciate it
Till next time

  22. That gilded circle works beautifully against one of your spectacular flowers. Love it Patricia. Jenny x

  23. Oh very nice card. She likes it. Of course she would.

    I had to laughwith you not at you. That would be me. All talk and forget the water is running. Oh you got through it. You never flooded the whole floor. Only at my house it was not I.

    My hubby did a real disaster. He ws adding water into the sink with soap. His friend came to the door and talked and talked to him. I thought us gals talked.

    I was in the art room but for some good reason. I needed a glass of water.

    oh my. All I could see was the water and soap coming over the top to the floor.

    Was I a happy camper. Well not really. My hubby is so laid back. He never thought nothing of it.

    He remarks. Now the floors are nice and clean. My floors are always clean I piped up. Oh well. Now it had double duty. Dont worry so much Hon he said.

    I enjoyed your blog and note.

  24. Hi Patricia,

    Really, really pretty card. Thank you for sharing.

    Much love,

  25. WOW! This is gorgeous!!!! Gives me ideas.............

  26. Hi Patricia, there's nowt as queer as folk! Working in a service environment it never ceases to amaze me how funny some guys can be, I find being very nice and smiling always throws them when they're being grumpy!
    Loving this card, the centre piece is gorgeous and love the tag and flower addition.
    Happy crafting, hugs Erika.
