Rules is the oldest restaurant in London and opened way back in 1798. It is in a side street just off Covent Garden...we had a little walk around as we arrived quite early.
If you haven't been to Covent Garden it's a fun place to visit any time of the year. When our children were young we used to drive up on a Sunday morning and have lunch and visit the craft market.
We walked round to Maiden Lane to Rules
and found there is still a lovely uniformed door man to greet you at the door.
The food is very traditional; roast meat, pies etc and it is first class.
It was a really wonderful birthday. Thanks M you are my star. You spoil me and I love it ;0)
My card today was inspired by spring, cups of tea and my birthday meal at Rules.
I white embossed several of my Crafty Individual's daisy stamps onto card and then used this as a resist to my inks for my background.
I used my CI time for tea stamp and embossed it in black and then started to colour it up with my distress inks.
I then put together a little afternoon tea scene and used the windows of Rules for inspiration too ;0)

Thanks for visiting me today and for the lovely comments you take the time to leave. The sunshine is back today after a very rainy Friday and dull yesterday. We are Bear sitting and hope to enjoy a lovely long walk later on...I will be taking my camera to see what Mother Nature has been up to.
Bye for now,
