This weekend went by too quickly. We had good weather, hot and sunny, and I was out most of the time. In the night the promised thunder-storms started, so it's warm, wet, dark and windy today.
Today we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday. This time I am hosting and my theme is beverages. Any sort of drink, cup, glass, tea-pot, coffee-pot, kettle etc would make a good tag. Think milk shakes, summer cocktails, whatever you like drinking. Tags of all formats are welcome, and as always, you have 2 weeks to join us.
I started off with a coffee tag - what else? This is definitely my fave beverage. I made a stamped and collaged card. The background was repeatedly stamped with the words 'Is there really a life before coffee' using Espresso ink from Ranger on a sprayed card. I matted the tag with brown and blue and rounded the edges. The bird was printed onto canvas and cut from a Gecko Galz image. The little tea-cups were made using a freebie stamp which was painted and fussy cut. The milk-foam was made with puff paint. The little blue cup is a button.
Hope to see lots of you joining in:
I chose this theme as it fits well to Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday. Last Wednesday we revisited the medieval moated castle of which I showed some pics a couple of weeks back.
This time we went into the inner courtyard where there is a cafe/restaurant with a great selection of drinks and food. My coffee was served on a little wooden tray with a morsel of chocolate cake, Harry drank water:
Going through the old gate-house to the courtyard:
And inside we discovered this beautiful peacock who delighted everybody with his posing:
This figure was sitting alone on a bench, so we kept him company:
A pleasant place to sit:

We also spent a lot of time looking round the park, walking in the woods and exploring the neighbourhood, but I will save those pics for another time.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
