Keep calm and drink tea

Whew, what is this weather all about. It poured yesterday, about 4pm the sun came out and then after about an hour and a half poured again even harder, lightning and hail thundering down. It was a sunny start but now it's clouded over so I expect it will be raining soon. I was out all day yesterday but after some housework need to get on with lots of crafting.

I love these keep calm sayings and images and bought this one from Pink Gem a few days ago. I love the fact that you get a clear image and a coloured image. I used the coloured image as I love the Union Jack patterns and I also have a lot of Crafter's Companion samples to make. I used Dovecraft Tea House papers and bunting, available at The Craft Barn, cupcake embossing folder with sanded Core'dinations, MS doily punch and baker's twine.
