Chief Tidier-upper...

Hi folks...today's the day the nice man arrives with buckets of plaster to turn the horrible paper stripped walls in the kitchen into something smooth and beautiful ready for painting but from past experience it's a bit of a messy affair and no doubt I'll be wearing several hats today...Chief Tea Maker and changing to Chief Tidier-Upper at the end of the day.
So far I've managed a few sneaky forays into the cubbyhole despite the mad DIY malarkey that's happening all round me...well there are new stamps that I've been itching to ink from my beloved Hero Arts...how could I resist having a play with this gorgeous mix of delicious rubber...
and a chance to play with some more of  the delicious goodies from my Ribbon Girl DT parcel...

It was love at first when I saw the Beige Shabby Dahlias...they are so gorgeous and so many in a pack too...likewise the beautiful Ivory Pleated Satin Ribbon
Now plaster and furry feet are not a good mix...I really don't think me picking hardened plaster from between his toes would go down too well with His Nibs so it might be a good idea for the Furry Boy and his Mum to retreat to the cubbyhole out of the way...as good an excuse as any for some more crafty playtime but I'll be back tomorrow to share a project I made with the Fiskars Fuse...another of my "throwing down the gauntlet" challenges for this fabulous machine.
And I have news of some fabulous give-aways from Craftwork Cards...every day this week you can WIN...WIN...WIN some Beautiful Bunting...so make sure you pop over to Craftwork Cards Blog and check out the fabulous inspired makes by my lovely teamies...starting off today with gorgeous makes by the very talented Julie Hickey.

Hi Kath, loving the new HA stamps and your tag is gorgeous, really like the embossing over the background, it looks wonderful. Love the dahlias too, I think I 'need' some of those......

We got 'plastered' again on Friday and now have dust in places you would not believe so a very good idea to keep the gorgeous Buddy out of that room.......... Hugs, Anne x

Buddy - you just behave & keep out of the plaster man's way........not nice with that horrid stuff sticking to your feet. Love the tag card Kath - the layered stamping is a treat & I love those colours.
