Very Belated Mother's Day card

Hi everyone. Thank you for your lovely comments on my card. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave them for me. It makes me a happy bunny :D. I will definitely show you my craft room when it's finished. I've got something being made which will take a while so it will probably be a couple of months before it's completely ready for its grand unveiling.

Onto today's card. A local tearoom/ farm shop has offered to sell my cards whenever I can make them which is just wonderful of them as it doesn't put me under any pressure if I'm not feeling up to card-making. This is a Mother's Day card I made for the shop but have only just managed to show you:-

Well that's all from me today except a little apology if I haven't commented on some of your posts. I'm so behind on things at the moment at home so my blogging is taking a back seat. I've also got to sort through my craft stuff and my mums to see what I want to keep and what must go which I'm not looking forward to as I'll want to keep everything!!
Sending you all a big hug,

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....

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
