A quick and easy one..

Hi BBB's

Just needed to get a simple card on here today...  still got lots of stress going on with the kitchen, finally got my hob and sink connected last night, but ended up with a leak about 9.30 pm - then again this morning.  We've got a really good plumber who was with us within 3 mins of us calling last night... he only lives around the corner and came on his bike with his grips in hand!!  He also came out again this morning, but as there is so much pipework in one cupboard, it's proving difficult to find the leak.  We have the tiler coming on Monday...  and the flooring Thursday...  and I'm really getting cheesed off...  I'm losing sight of the lovely kitchen it's going to be........  Sorry, having a bit of a pity party this morning.... Barry's at work,  hence needing to make a card!

This was a little stamp I purchased from Stamping Bella....  Balloon Circle.  I got it from across the pond, as it doesn't seem to be in this country yet.  Don't you think it looks effective?  It's coloured with copics and promarkers - then of course, a spinkling of the magic dust!!  It's punched out with a 2" punch and I've just put a 3D sticky pad to raise it.  I handwrote the sentiment which I think looks OK, not 100% happy with it tho... will have to practice!

Whatever you're doing, I do hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend..
Big Hugs

  3. Poor you Christine - the upheaval and mess is so hard to put up with but you will just love the end result, so chin up and take a deep breath. Not long now and it will all seem like a passing dream.
    You will be Queen of your new kitchen and all you survey!

  6. It's gorg Christine. I love the handwriting on it. It looks really good (much neater than mine) The stamp is really effective and the soft pink and blue is lovely. A great clean and simple card.
    Hope the kitchen gets sorted soon, there is nothing worse than having a kitchen out of order, nor being plagued with leaks. Hope you get it fixed soon. ps - your plumber sounds great!!! What great service. Fab.

  11. Hi Christine, what a fab card! Perfect CAS - and the image is just great and very effective, I think.

    So sorry to hear that you are having problems with your kitchen - having renovated our house, and then the stable block into a holiday cottage, I can quite happily say been there done that and it does get better in the end! But it's the getting there that is a real pain!!! And don't get me started on tradesmen - you're lucky you've found a good one.
