And Breath....thats better ,well it is not really!!!!! I am livid I am here washing and drying my clothes and doing my best Dot Cotton impersonation getting ready for my move. Anyway Jimmy comes home from work and we are enjoying our pie and mash for lunch when my eldest daughter comes in and says there is a drip coming from the light switch. Well in we go and our bathroom has become a wet room for the millionth time!!!!! Jimmy goes upstairs bless him and answer as usual!!!! I have rung the council and they are going to make our electrics safe. The neighbours are leaseholders who rent out the flat and are very mananna in attitude so Lord only knows when our leak will cease. Electrician has just come and he was worried about the amount of water coming out and so he went up and still couldn't get an answer.
Well onto more pleasant issues.....cardmaking. Couldn't resist Simon says stamp challenge and Creative Card crew challenge this week. Both want us to do Christmas in August. No problem for me I love Christmas all year around.
I used some glimmer mists to create a background Timeless lilac and Pearl and dabbed with a scrunched up piece of paper. I then stamped on a row of paperartsy trees. I also stamped some more paperartsy trees onto some Basic grey Eva papers cut them out and added stickles. I stamped on the Season's greetings sentiment again Paperartsy and made a tag.
