Phew!! What A Week!!

Hi everyone,


What a week I have had. Up and down on my ladder, hanging lining paper on the walls, filling in cracks, painting ceilings and walls!! And I have only done 3 walls in my craft room.


It was more difficult, as I was unable to empty the room completely. Just covered up everything with dust sheets.


Other than the horrible smell, the room now looks lighter and cleaner. Now I have to wait for 'My man that does', to come and fit worktops and shelving onto 2 of the walls and then I can do the final wall.


I made this card last week. It was a set of Lili of The Valley pics which were free with a magazine. I have coloured them with my Copic Pens. What!! I hear you say, no Distress Inks!! Well, with the Little Claire sentiment stamp I used Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The card would not take the inks and water.


I must tell you that I sold my Buddha Nut butterfly house last Saturday! I was thrilled, as it is now in Scotland! The lady was down here visiting her sister and as soon as she saw it, she said she wanted it! I now know I am not the only one with strange vision!Lol!



I am now doing my friends' wedding invites etc. I am thrilled for her, as she really deserves a more settled life. She is one of lifes' 'nice' people.


I have had a few of LOTV Christmas stamps delivered, so can't wait to find my Distress Inks again! I'm just never happy with my colouring with Copics. I suppose it would help if I had more shades of each colour. Then I could blend them better.


There were loads of LOTV images to do, so will keep my Copics to hand, or might even use my water colour pencils for a change.


Thanks for visiting and as now I can get to my desk, I will try to get back to posting more often!

Luv,

Carol S. xx

Gorgeously fab card Carol - the image is coloured beautifully as always and I love the embossing detail. Hope your craft room is up and running soon. Jxx
