I enjoyed a lovely mango tea blend, delicious scones, wonderful soup and salad, divine tea sandwiches (the apricot cream cheese on raisin bread and cucumber sandwiches were especially fabulous) and decadent desserts. They had a grand gift shop where I treated myself to a colorful new scarf. Little Laila behaved as a proper 10 week old should. The only thing to dampen our spirits was the RAIN!
Unfortunately, it poured all the way there and downpoured all the way home. Forget the umbrella. It was one of those rains that comes sideways in sheets. Lucky me, I was driving, with the wipers on high speed the whole time. Why in the world did we go today in such a torrent of precipitation? you might be asking. Tomorrow is my daughter's birthday and the calendar just didn't have room in it tomorrow. So we went today. No one drowned. All is well.
In the spirit of today's weather, I am posting the second card I made with the remaining umbrella pieces from my 'It's a Boy' card I shared with you on Saturday. This umbrella is a Great Impressions stamp, which I stamped 4 times on different colored papers and then did a lot of paper piecing. The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.
