Inspired by Paula...Day 1

Morning folks...Monday morning and after a fun weekend away from the cubbyhole...I'm itching to get back to the crafty stuff but first there's the small problem of the layer of fine dust that the plaster man left behind in the kitchen...crikey it's looks like there's been a volcanic eruption...it's in every nook and cranny...can't even see out the window so there's nothing else for it...it's going to be a washing down everything in sight and a clean out and organise the kitchen cupboards kind of a day...oh joy of blinking joys...not the most fun job on the planet but hey someone's gotta do it and it looks like I ended up drawing the short straw.
But enough of my tales of woe...first it's time to announce the winner of my Monday Monthly Ribbon Girl Give-Away...
congratulations Bev...if you e-mail me I'll arrange for you to collect your voucher from The Ribbon Girl and then you'll have to decide what you're going to spend it on...decisions decisions when there's such a bonanza of beautiful goodies to choose from and there's more good news...I've managed to have a little play with the new dies that my lovely buddy Paula sent me and will be sharing my  "Inspired By Paula" makes over the next few days. If you pop across here regularly...you'll know I'm in neutral mode at the moment and being a big fan of shabby chic vintage it was a chance to unearth one of the recent purchases to arrive in the cubbyhole...the gorgeous French Industrial Paper Stack from the person who's got Vintage down to a T...
I'm loving Paula's Flowers Intricate Dies and whether you stack them or use them singly...they are rather fabulous...don't you think
and another excuse to use one of my favourite "must play with" products at the moment...Tim's fabulous Remnant Rubs...



I'll be back tomorrow with more "Inspired by Paula" makes...in the meantime I have an appointment with a Steam Cleaner...some marigolds and a bucket of hot soapy water...oh yeah this girl definitely knows how to have fun.
Hugs Kath xxx

Paula's new dies are so beautiful and just that bit different - really liking them. On the final leg of our 'make-over' too, keep finding plaster and builder's dust every day in some little nook or cranny - fed up with up. Carpets and curtains today - yay! Hope your clean up job goes well. Hugs, Anne x

Great post Kath. I love that card and the colours you have used to create it. I don't envy you the task ahead, but as you say it has to be done. Think how nice it's going to look when finished. Hugs Rita xxxxx

Loving your 'neutral phase'. The dies/stamps look a dream to use and your cards are gorgeous.
We are into the decorating/cleaning
