Hello again! I am back with a card that I finished ages ago but never got around to taking a picture, until this morning. It has been sat in the conservatory freezing behind piles of boxes, but the pile is slowly getting smaller and at last, we have hot water! Another day and the shower will be operational although it will be the new year before the new loo and radiators go in. I've tiled the back wall of the kitchen and started on the side wall, just need to get the trim for around the window and a new windowsill before I can carry on, but hopefully that area will be looking good for Christmas. I've also been doing the grouting in the bathroom and even painted the ceiling .. .. although as the tiles are big I've left sticking them on the wall to someone else. It's a slow job as I don't have a lot of energy to spare, but we are getting there.
My card is another simple design with one of Sylvia's new Wee images, this is Heidi all wrapped up warm against the snowy weather. She is coloured with Copics and I've stamped the greeting then inked the edges with the Nestie still in place to give the look of another layer. The papers are freebies from a magazine (all I could get my hands on at the time) and the snowflakes just punched out of white card. I managed to squeeze out just enough Stardust Stickles to add a little sparkle .. .. will need to add to the shopping list as the spare bottle is still in a box in the loft!
My computer is still playing up and I lost internet for a few days as the modem didn't like being moved on to an extension lead. Now it's back sat on top of the new boiler, hopefully they will be happy together and the electronics won't interfere. I can't scan the list of blogs I follow beyond the past couple of hours so I have no idea what challenges are around at the moment, or who has posted and what. I did see that the Winter Wonderland challenge is 'let it snow' so will enter little Heidi with them.
Not sure when I will be back again as there is still loads to do here. No news yet on our new planning application but there is plenty we can be getting on with now that we have simplified the design. Next on the list is a new garage door that fits snugly and keeps out the wind and rain, but that's a job for someone else to do in the new year so I might get a chance to do a little crafting now and then.
