Shopping blues or is it greens?




A quick post from me. Up late last night painting the first coat on my new craft room. Off to do the skirting now then another coat of paint before we get to put the colour on. Has to be done today as I am having carpet laid tomorrow morning. I know carpet in a craft room but I thought it would be cosy:) I do spend a lot of time in there after all lol.
Here is a little peek at my hubby sawing away to make the new floor:) He has worked so hard all weekend. Luckily he is on holidays from 12 today so not much of an Easter break for him I'm afraid! I will add all my photos so far into MY CRAFT ROOM page up above for anyone interested.
Right onto my card
Image - The greeting farm
Papers - old kit from QVC
Embellishments - ms flower punch, card candi,  Crafty Ribbons ribbon, embossing folder
Sentiment - free magazine stamp

I would like to enter this into
Seems a little Sketchy - followed their sketch

Simon Says - favourite tool (flower punches)
Fab n Funky - embossing

The sun is shining here today but I will be working indoors all day again:)

Very sweet card. Of course you want carpet, keep it cosy and you can always hoover up the mess.

Beryl said...

Love those nestie layers and the bp. I think she looks how I feel when I've been shopping - great image and beautifully coloured.
There was (is) laminated flooring down in the room I've claimed as my craft room but I had to put a rug down as the least movement from me when I was sitting in it, sent my computer chair whizzing across the floor. Carpet sounds good to me.
