May card Class - Take a sip (wheel)

Hello lovely Blog friends and new followers - welcome! How's your day going? well, mine is a bit hectic to be honest... but the sun is shining and it's so lovely outside, long may it continue....

Last weekend I was at a crafting Retreat, held by Michelle Last and Marguerite Moran, and I loved every minute of it. I attended last year's Retreat too, the first one they held and it was the perfect "Me" time I needed. I booked this years one over a year ago and had been counting down the months - and now it's been and gone!! I did however, meet so many wonderful ladies, and a shall always have very fond memories of the gorgeous projects made in the classes I booked on and the friendships made over the weekend.

This is the second card made at my May card class, what do you think?
I knew that most of the ladies hadn't tried water colouring, so I thought I'd get them to give it a go, and they loved it!
Normally, I am a perfectionist, but with water colouring I find it easier to go quickly and not worry too much... I know, that doesn't sound like me, but it works!!
As I decorated the front of the card with the "Special Treat" tag, I felt it needed a tea bag attached to the other end of it... and I stuck it to the inside of the card.... this time I didn't add a sentiment to it so it could be used for any occasion.
Here is another one I made using pinks instead of browns.... still looks good doesn't it?!
