soooo behind!!

Here we are its Sunday night and I haven't even got round to posting my DT card for this weeks Allsorts challenge. This week it is Deb's challenge and she wants "something for the boys" so I made this card using a stamp I found in my craft box, SU paper and ribbon and the letters are cut on the cuttlebug. I sent this card to my step dad as it was his birthday this week :o)

The kitchen has been a saga this week, delayed deliveries, nowhere to put anything and a house where nothing goes right combined to make it a nightmare!! The weekend was particularly stressful as Ian nearly electucuted himself rewiring some sockets (ohhhh men!). To be honest Ian isn't the most patient of men when it comes to jobs like this and he tends to lose the head a wee bit so the air was blue more than a few times when things weren't going his way!! Of course combined with my pregnancy hormones it has been a bit of a tearful weekend too!

But we finally have some base units fitted now and the hob and oven are fitted and connected so at least we are back to being able to cook lol Here's hoping this week is better with less tantrums lol

Fantastic card, love the shade of blue.
Oh Panda, you don't need to be stressed!! Poor Ian.... I am lucky because Douglas is an electrician to trade and can also do most other jobs too. Take care and try and chill out.

Lovely card for a man, Amanda. Clean and simple. I love that.
Congratulations on your pregnancy :) I cross my fingers that you'll have better times in your home soon. I remember when we refurbished our kitchen, it really was a nightmare. But it all went well in the end :)

Hugs, Kristin :)

It's a lovely card for a man, Panda,
they are soooo hard to make.
Renovations are very stressful but so worth it in the end, so hang in there.
I'm not sure if I have ever commented here, but I do visit almost daily to see what you have been up to.
