Brit Card & Loving being British (mostly!)

Ok- its a little quirky ( maybe a lot!) but with all the Jubilee festivities and general swelling of British pride, it seemed appropriate. The stamps are from an ultra cool set by Indigo Blu. As the My Little Shoebox stickers were still lying around I thought I’d use them. The arrangement of them is mimicking the head-dress on Britannia ( ha- not quite as random as you were imagining!) and the punched holes are her hair. The images are stamped and paper pieced.

Had a great day yesterday with some friends round to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee. We even had a Jubilee cake which one of my olders created

My eldest decided we should really have a party and after half an hour phoning around had invited 27 people! They didn’t all come in the end- 21 was a good crowd though. There was lots of food and we spent that evening baking ( any old excuse!!). It wasn’t a real party- more of a chilled get together but it was lovely sharing the pride of being British and honouring the Queen.

There are so many reasons that it’s great being British- but we often forget them.
Here’s my list.
The monarchy. Architecture. Castles. History. Pomp. Cream Teas. Education . Fish and Chips. Diverse culture. Fashion ( not mine- obviously!). Gentle climate. Wellington Boots. Sandwiches. Jelly and Icecream. The countryside. British beaches. British music. Chocolate. Thatched cottages. Bunting. Morris dancers. Folk music. King James Bible. I could go on.
What’s your favourite thing about Britain?
There are some weird and just plain bizarre things about our nation – take the local obsession for going out in your pyjamas. But for the moment, here’s to you Ma’am. Long may you continue to reign!

See you when I’ve got rid of the rest of the buffet ( obviously not consuming it all myself!) xx

    Love your British-inspired card, Keren! So lovely and oh..so..British!What a PROPER post for this special occasion. As I was watching the TV broadcast of the Queen’s Jubilee’s concert and firework (!!!) last night, I feel the HUGE sense of pride of being British! I love so many things about British. Two obvious things are Jane Austin and any dramas that are British! And not to mention that sexy British accent–they get me EVERY time!! Long live the Queen!
