Last Tuesday saw the beginning of our alterations that we are having carried out, the scaffolding had already been up for a week at this stage so I was glad that they had started, but it also meant complete upheaval inside the house (not something I was looking forward too). So feeling a bit apprehensive Tuesday, I thought as they were outside I would keep up to date in blogland. I clicked onto the Lavinia challenge blog to see who had been the lucky winner last month and was most surprised to see that it was me. I had placed an order for some of the new stamps on the website and was waiting for them to arrive, so this meant I could now go back and order the ones that I had not done with the previous order. Both orders had arrived by Thursday and by this time the house was in complete chaos, a hole open to the elements in the roof no ceiling in part of our bedroom and they were starting on downstairs which meant that by the end of the day there would be a hole right through the house to outside. Friday morning came and I got up and retreated into my She Shed, which I normally use for my more messier crafting, taking my new Lavinia stamps with me. I found my distress inks and some embossing powders and managed to come up with this card to enter into this months challenge, which is Hot Red Colours. Thank you to Tracey and Kevin for the wonderful prize you give each month on the challenge blog, I've really enjoyed using these wonderful new stamps. The Happy Birthday die is from the new collection from Tonic and the flowers were made using Hellen, from the Tattered Lace Trio collection.
Back today and I've just found out that the builder will not be here today as he's not feeling well, hope he make it tomorrow. Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
