Had a busy day yesterday and wasn't the weather gorgeous! Managed to find carpets for the stairs, daughter's bedroom and our bedroom at the local carpet shop then we went down to Berwick and found the perfect material for roman blinds for our room - just need some bathroom tiles and our room will be sorted! Lounge carpet and blinds are proving a little more difficult but there's no hurry at the moment so we'll just keep looking.
Managed to do a bit of crafting last night and finished a competition card I'd started on Sunday, got a DT card out of the way then made this one just because!

The image is from Joanna Sheen's Daisy and Friends CD. Papers and sentiment are all from a HOTP book which was a very early "must have" crafting purchase from QVC many moons ago......to be fair I'm slowly getting through it lol. The border die is from Marianne Design and is having it's first airing although I've just realised it's actually meant for threading ribbon through....doh! The ribbon is recycled and the organza flower has been in my stash for some time. Card is finished with some gems and pearls.

Challenges entered:
Lollipop Crafts - anything goes
Squigglefly - anything goes
The Crazy Challenge - add a sentiment
Hiding in my Craftroom - hideous papers
Whoopsi Daisy - use your stash
