This week has been quite uneventful, no major musicians have shuffled off this mortal coil and my life is pretty much on an even keel. I did however get some fantastic news last saturday when my sister Lorraine rang me to say that my mum wanted to give me a thousand pounds!! It left me pretty much speechless (and a little overwhelmed!).
Jo and I have been wanting to get our bathroom done since we moved into our house 8 years ago. The style of the previous owners was a little less shabby chic and more Baghdad Expressionism. The tiles are such a disgusting brown colour it makes me feel like I am showering in a 1970's outside lavvy! I have already had a plumber in to give me a quote and we are just waiting for him to get back to us to find out what we can actually afford to have done. If nothing else I just want rid of those tiles!!
This weeks card uses a sheet of Basic Grey as backing and I got to use some of my many new Nestabilities I got from Create and Craft. The stamp is called 'Rosie with Presents' and costs a paultry £4.50, who could ask for anything better than that! I also used a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page too. I was going to use a sentiment but decided against it as I think the image says it all, I also didn't really want to over-crowd the card which I can sometime do!
So, hope you like it and I look forward to showing you next weeks card which I feel is one of my finest for ages.
P.S. Every week I give my creation a name based on a song title. Most of the time they will be fairly obvious but occassionally I may try to challenge you with a title that is a little more obscure. Music has always been a major influence in my life and I find that a song title is always a great jumping off point to get creative, some people like a sketch, I Love Music (see what I did there!!).
