Still waiting........

Hi everyone on this very soggy bank holiday monday! We usually have a full house this weekend as we have a bbq for my eldest son, Dom's birthday but Lara obviously didn't want to be so far from home and we are on standby for the baby :o)
My craft room is finished at last and it's very organised although it will take a while for me to automatically reach for a particular tool or stamp! I'm determined to keep the floor clear and have had a good clearout! It's amazing the things you find hidden away, come and see my new room:

7' x 3' sloping under front steps, used to be the coal hole!

Hope to keep it tidy!

Very useful peg board storage

You may have caught a glimpse of Dom's birthday card on my desk and here it is:

An embossed background from Tim Holtz with silver gilding wax to highlight. Some silver card and a piece of dp to make a book and a stamped pen fussy cut and gilded too. The other card lying flat is waiting for some liquid pearls to dry so maybe next time although that was the first card that I made today in my new room!

Pregnant pause........

Hi everyone I'm in a state of anticipation waiting for my new grandbaby to arrive! He/she is due next Friday but early would be nice!
I've a couple more cards to share with you and some digital scrapbook pages so grab a cuppa and off we'll go:

Charlie and his best friend Emily May at the baby shower wearing his engine drivers hat!

The following pages are from the wedding we attended last week

A birthday card for a friend who has started playing bowls

This was for my great niece, Daisy, who has just become a teenager and loves all forms of dance.
I cut the shape using my Silhouette portrait.

This was for Keir, obviously, apologies for the photo

and this was for a friend yesterday

and one today!

Finally this was for a friend who enjoys good wine!

Thanks for bearing with me, ooh that sounds baby related!!

Hopefully I'll be back with some news

Hi everyone I'm hoping the weather stays fine today as we are off to a wedding at 3pm and tomorrow it's off to Portsmouth for birthday celebrations. Keir, Charlie's dad is having his yearly BBQ for his birthday and we get to spend 3 days with Charlie!
Just thought I'd show you the wedding card I made which is a book card and I've scheduled this post for later just in case the recipients are browsing the internet, come and see:
