Willow Sketchie Challenge - 15th March

Hi Everyone,

I can seriously recommend going to have afternoon tea at The Randolph in Oxford.  It was Mum's Birthday yesterday, and so I took her for Afternoon Tea.  Wow!!!  They could of not been more welcoming to us both, they seated us and took our coats, we were then asked what loose leaf tea we wanted, mine I like strong, so I opted for Assam tea, whereas my Mum likes weak tea so she just had some Traditional English Tea.  Now, when they brought this I didn't really want it, due to being fed tea in hospital!!!  That was before I tasted it, delicious.  Then, came the three tiered serving stand with sandwiches (crusts cut off), scones and then all manner of cakes.  I then mentioned it to the Waiter that it was my Mum's birthday, and he went off and got a box of chocolates, how nice was that.   I tell you we came out of there stuffed!!!  I am so glad that my Mum enjoyed it, it was her day, and she deserved it.

Anyway, it's Thursday and that means two things, one is I am at my Stroke Club (so this is a scheduled post) this morning, and the other is it's time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge.  However, there is a new format that we are now following.  There is a Sketch, however there is also a Theme, now it's your choice as to what one or both you decide to follow.  

But firstly, I must congratulate the Winner of last weeks Challenge, we had loads of really good entries and I really like looking at each of them, so thank you.  So the Winner of last weeks Challenge was (drum roll) ........... Elaine LP  (no 13).  I really enjoyed your card / project.  I hope you enjoy you Voucher to spend at Willow Designs.  Congratulations.

This week our hostess is the most fantastic Pauline,  she has a Sketch for us to follow, and here it is:


But, together with the Sketch her Theme is:

'Embellish It Up' 

For this one it's easy all we want to see some buttons, flowers or bling

Now I here you calling 'What will I win???'.  I heard you, the Winner of this weeks Challenge (picked at random) will receive a Voucher to spend at Willow Designs, how cool is that!!!
