Mother's Day (or special lady) - Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone :o)

Our challenge for this week at Sweet Stampin' is 'Mother's Day (or special lady)' and we're sponsored by Crafts U Love with a £10 voucher for the lucky winner.

I always feel like I've cheated when I use a pre-coloured image, but this is a cute one, and I really have nowhere to sit and colour at the moment so I won't beat myself up over it!  The papers and image are LOTV, sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp, the leafy die is Memory Box (I think) and the flowers are from Wild Orchid.

As with everything to do with the extension, we had a few hitches getting the craft room sorted... the flooring arrived damaged and we had to wait for replacements, the joiner still hasn't been to fit the skirting boards.  He's supposedly coming tomorrow, and I have the furniture arriving this week (fingers crossed!) so I should (pleeeeeease) have a fully functional room this time next week.  Will post photos when it's all done!

Thanks for popping in... hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Clean & Simple - Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone :o)

I had to skip the last Sweet Stampin' challenge, as I was drowning in brick dust... I'm back this week though, and with one of my favourite challenges -  'clean & simple' (CAS).  We're sponsored by the fabulous Bunny Zoe's.  Sadly Nikki is closing down Bunny Zoe's (nooooo, say it isn't so?!), but this does mean that she has some great sale bargains at the moment, so do pop over and have a look.

I used my Cameo and a Silhouette cut file to make a simple new home card... it's a great one for using up all those little strips of card you can't bear to throw away, and a fun way to try different colour combos.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

So, this week I've been painting the new craft room, and on Thursday I've got the flooring being fitted... so there's only the furniture to sort out after that (oh, and move all my craft stuff into its new home), and then I'll be back to crafting again properly... ooh I can't wait, not long now!!!

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
