I am home........sob

***********Warning long post - scroll down for card********************

Morning bloggers, I am sooooooooo glad we have a Bank Holiday today, we got back from a fantastic week in Scotland visiting family yesterday and its nice to have a day catching up on washing etc.........I could live up in Scotland, It is soooooooo pretty and I would be close to my adopted mum (my mother in law Little Daffodil), so I could raid her stash every day!!!! Lol. Hubby got loads of quality time with his dad too, they both love Photography so managed to teach each other loads of tips and tricks with the cameras.

Whilst we were away we decided we would have our bathroom done, we sold our caravan to raise the pennies for this venture as we wanted two rooms completely gutted and merged into one and I wanted all pipes and electrics hidden in wall cavities etc..........well I had dreams of coming home to my dream bathroom but I knew it would not happen in a week, I had hoped that some things would have been in, but this was what we came home to last night!!!!

Walls have had to be reinforced for the hanging vanity unit, toilet re-routed as we wanted it moved (more of a problem than we first thought due to our Kitchen extension!!! Just loads of preparation work really......oh well I am hoping it will be worth it when its done, I have waited for this bathroom for 5 years!!! These pics don't really show how big this room is going to be, can't get the angle to photograph it all.

BTW, that is our old loo not the new one......I am somewhat confused about that as we are have a corner loo.......the soil pipe looks in the wrong place to me but then again I am no toilet expert!!

Anyway I just had to share this pic, it is my youngest fur baby Kevin, yes this is that fluffy guy in my sidebar after I clipped him last week for his holidays.....yes all the fur babies come to Scotland, my poor in-laws were decended upon by 4 humans and 3 fur babies....LOL, talk about a full house, we take over their entire home when we go.....it's a good job they are such lovely people, I don't know many people that would let 3 dogs stay in their home....LOL, especially disfunctional ones, all my dogs have had some kind of unpleasent past they are rescues so they all have some quirk or other!

So Jeanie, you think he is still cute without his curls? I think he looks cute both with both hairstyles.....LOL

Right, onto my card, I made this whilst in Scotland, using my adopted mummy's Mermaid Tilda stamp and copics to colour her....oh and I pinched all the embellies, I just provided the DSP which is MME Penny Lane.....Lol, love you mummy!! I am entering this card into this weeks Stampin for the weekend challenge which is 'anything goes' and creative card crew want to see our cards sparkle and shine, the paper is soooooo sparkly but the camera has not really picked it up.

Anyway, I have loads of organising to do before I go back to work tomorrow......BOO, have a great bank holiday Monday for those who it applies to, everyone else have a great Monday.x

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.

Sweet Baby

Hi bloggers, I am back with 2 more cards, I love being on my holidays here in Scotland, I have spent loads of time with the family and got to spend hours and hours crafting with my fabulous mother in law. Whilst in her craft room last night I saw a list of challenges on her desk, one of which was Cute Card Thursday which this week is 'Dieing for a punch'..............shock, horror, how can the CCT team be so cruel, I rely on punches and nesties (when I get to play) so this was a big challenge but I thought I would give it a whirl.

I created 2 baby cards, I kept them really simple........I am starting to love simple cards.....so much quicker to make. These cards were created with Papertrey Ink's Itty Bitty Blessings and PTI's DSP, I am loving Papertrey at the moment.

Not much to say about them really, I stamped the sentiment for the boy card in Stampin up's Bashful Blue, the camera struggled to pick it up!

The next card is the girly one, i had a disaster with this sentiment, it only half stamped so i had to go over it with a pink tombow pen that the mummy in law had, the sentiment is from the same PTI set.

I am also entering this one into Crafty Emma's first ever challenge which is this week is 'anything goes', if you have not already had a mooch around Emma's store you are in for a treat, Emma is stocking some delish items you won't find in just any store including cats life press stamps, just fab!

40th Birthday Commission

Hi peeps, long time no blog, life is just way to hectic to craft at the moment, what with work, housework and a bathroom renovation I just cannot seem to find anytime for myself these days.

Anyhow, I am in Scotland at the moment with my in-laws and as my mother in law is a fellow crafter, I get to spend time taking over her craft room and stash and I have managed to complete this comission for a 4oth birthday, I decided on an easel card.

The image is a digi download available from the Digi shack, i first saw it on Jeanie's blog and I just had to have it, I also copied Jeanie's fab phrase to go with the image....thanks Jeanie!!

The lush glittery papers are My minds eye and the happy birthday and 40 are from Papertrey Ink sets as is the die I used to cut the sentiment out.

Fairy godmother is coloured with my mother in law's copics, her wings are covered with glitter. sooooo sparkly, hope you like her.

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them, I hope to get some time to visit you all soon.
