Peace and Tranquility

Hi there dear friends.
Well I had a lovely birthday weekend. Lots of lovely cards and presents and a lovely meal out courtesy of my wonderful son and his fiance. I must say food, cakes and chocolate have featured heavily since Friday. Jessica made us some yummy banana muffins on Friday which really got the food fest started. Thanks Jessica.
Now onto this weeks challenge at Try it on Tuesday. It's Tag week and the theme, as my title says, is Peace and Tranquility. There's not been much of that  going on around here lately. 
Here's my tag.

The image is a Clarity stamp on a brayered background using Mountain Meadow Big and Juicy. I inked the image and then ran the brayer over it and onto the card to get the reflection, then stamped the main image direct to the card. The outer part of the tag was also coloured using Mountain Meadow but applied with a sponge. The fern sprays are a Laura Ashley stamp. I don't think I need to say the tag was cut using Nestabilities.
Please check out the challenge blog as there is plenty of inspiration from the fantastic Design Team and we would be really chuffed if you's join us for the challenge this week.
Well that's about it from me today. We are off to The Heart of the Shires today (between Rugby and Northampton) for a bit of "Nice" shopping and some lunch. There goes the diet again!!
Thanks for visiting
