I had a lovely day yesterday, it being Mothers day although quite busy. We went to see mum in law to give her her card and flowers and have a natter. She`ll be 90 in july and does really well for her age. She likes nothing better than a gossip and a giggle. We then popped in to see my mum in the care home and to give her her card before nipping to dads to catch up with all the gos from his mega 6 week holiday to Oz and NZ. He`s returned with a nasty bout of bronchitis bless him and at 83 it`s quite a worry although he keeps assuring me he`s fine and I`ve to stop fussing. Then it was get home quick for my kids to visit. This entertaining lark is quite exhausting isn`t it? Anyway...
I`m a bit late this week with my card for Simply Less is More Challenge , infact I missed last weeks altogether as we ( I) have been decorating our bedroom. More on that later...
The challenge this week is a One Layer Card to include an Animal. A good look through my stamps and I rediscovered this Humphrey stamp from Crafters Companion. I think I`ve only stamped him once before and that was a long time ago.
Coloured him with Promarkers and added a tiny white pearl to the centre of the flower.
The sentiment is from the same set, job done.
So...we decided to redecorate the bedroom which was in desperate need of doing. It`s quite an old house and the plastering isn`t that good so I went for an embossed paper and the palest pink I could find. We have white fitted cupboards on two walls and a huge window on the third so there`s not as much pink as it sounds. Before we started I thought it might be a good idea to do up an old stool that I inherited from an aunt donkeys years ago. It was rather mucky and very tatty so had been stuck in a corner in the loft with alsorts piled on it for ages.
This..It`s not perfect by a long shot but not bad for a first attempt. It has been decribed both as Pink Princess and tarts boudoir but I`m pleased with it. I think I got a bit carried away with the padding though but it has to be an improvement. I did ask hubby first before I plunged him into all this pinkness and he just said " I aren`t bothered, it`s dark when I`m asleep" Well, what can you say to that hee hee.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
