Oops!! A Forgotten One!!

Hi, Just found this still as draft!!
It was my Daughter's card at the end of November last year!!

The image is a Stamping Bella stamp I bought at The Craft Barn.

Stamped onto Langton Water Colour Paper Heavy card actually!!) and 
coloured with Distress Inks.


Very CAS as I didn't have access to many craft items at that time. Most
of it was packed in boxes!


We actually finished unpacking the house items yesterday.
The garage will have to wait until the weather is not so cold.

We are now just waiting for things we have ordered to be delivered.
Like 2 new sofas, a wardrobe, a metal headboard for our bed
 and made to measure venetian blinds.

The beds for the spare room came Friday evening. I say beds but 
they are one single bed with another underneath it.We only ordered
them the previous Friday! The sofas were ordered before Christmas!

At least we seem to be white dust free! It has been a job getting rid of it.
I think it was at it's worse when the hall ceiling and walls were sanded.
Every room, even with the doors shut, were covered in a white film.

I even put up my dollhouse up on Thursday. It took 2 days
to get everything into it. I forgot just how much was in it.
Especially the kitchen! All the Fimo fruit and veg I had made!!

We have put a few pictures on the walls which makes it more like home.

Now the bedlam is over, it was well worth 
doing the whole place in one go. Three weeks was long enough.

Thank you for your support during this time.
I couldn't have done it without you!

Have a lovely week,
Biggest hugs to you all,

Carol

A beautiful card for your daughter, I haven't done much distress ink colouring but hope to change that soon. I have a few supplies and need to watch some tutorials for hints and tips and then I'm away.
Glad you have come to the end of your decoration/improvement to your new home, now you can relax and settle to making it homely.

Gorgeous card Carol. Definitely a good idea to have all the work done at once instead of spreading it out.
