A new craft room!

Hi everyone. I'm so excited as I'm getting a craft room, YAY!!! I've been using a lap tray and a small folding TV table to do my crafting on for so long but not for much longer. We've been having an extension built on the back of our house since the end of January and it's getting to the end now. A third of the space is just for me so I'm having fun in between the hospital appointments shopping for furniture.

I have made a few cards but just haven't had time to post them anyway here's one of them using Graphic 45 Parfumerie stamp and die cut set.

A couple of close up photos....

Card Ingredients
6" x 6" Card Blank
Papers- Lotv Pressed in Time and Country Lady
Stamps- Lotv Set 49 Tags (Le Jardin) and Set 46 Background Bits (Notes).
              Hot off the Press stamp and punch sentiment.
Pens- Copic Ciao.
Ink- Memento Black Tuxedo and Distress ink pad Frayed Burlap
Dies- Spellbinders Labels Forty. Cheery Lynn Designs Doily die Sophia's Heart
Ribbon- Hobby House velvet ribbon. Thin ribbon and lace from my stash.
Flowers- Cherry blossom and Sweetheart blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts. Other flowers from stash . 
I'd like to enter the following challenges :-
Allsorts Challenge- April Showers bring May flowers
I've got my fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and microwave in our living room at the moment while the tiler is tiling the extension and kitchen. It was bearable on the first day but the that feeling is quickly wearing off now! My sons, Chris and Kieran, and Lexi, Chris' girlfriend, are here for some of the bank holiday so it'll be a bit of a squeeze in the living room but it'll be so great to have them all here. 
I hope you all in the UK have a great bank holiday and the rest of you wonderful blog friends all over the world have a great weekend too.
Sending you all a big hug, Debra x
