happy anniversary

sorry i have not been around but i have been decorating ~ well that was the plan ~decided to strip one wall in our lounge/dinner ~has taken all week ~ as who ever the builder/decorator of this house was put up woodchip wallpaper on chipboard ~with no plaster , who doesn`t plaster walls????? so it is a very slow progress inch by inch ~had to take wednesday off as my right hand was so swollen and felt like cat tom`s hand after being hit by a spade by jerry mouse (in the cartoon) ~so today i am going to finish that wall ~what ever!!! ~no pain no gain!! just the top left hand corner to complete!!
anyway , in the madness, my mother asked me to make an anniversary card for some dear friends of hers, as my parents are going to their party this weekend ~luckly my MIL had this kanban image/card i could use (as my craft stuff is hidden behind furniture/and all the lounge clutter) ~used the fab sketch over on SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY#55 ~ i have turned the sketch on it`s side!! added ribbon, glitter, stickers and pearls

time to get lunch box/school uniform together before lewis gets up. have lewis`s school summer bbq this evening with the new class lists up for next september. also have to get organised for aarons appeal for a new school, hope he could be back in education in september (but looks unlikely!! as been told the appeal will not be heard until then!!)

have a fab day and enjoy your weekend!! who knows i could be onto the sanding down and painting by then!!! if my hand allows!!

Nessy, your card is absolutely elegant! The gold and silver, and white are sooo striking together. Your mother's freind will love this card! I don't envy you redo the wall..I remember when I tackled a project like that...I took forever. But, like you said, no pain, no gain. Good luck on the project. I am sure it will turn out beautiful.

Yikes! You really get into your redecorating, don't you - glad you were able to create a card after your hand swelled up.
