WOYWW, I am very late!

Hello my lovely bloggy friends!

I am very late posting - I don't know what I was doing  - just pottering around all evening! It is really hot so I just tried to stay as cool as possible!
Today I am showing you an empty desk - but that my dear friends is actually an achievement! My craft room is finally restored to its original state - messy but my way of messy ! I did make a card which I will show and well it is time to show off my " garden " ....so here we go....
My desk.....beautifuly empty...


my craftroom .....back to normality.....


and here is the card I made that has already been sent to my DBFs granddaughter Jasmine....I used a Suzi Blu stamp, sprayed paper with Dylusions and Perfect pearls mist, embossing and played with embelishments and stamped on fabric.....



Here are a few photos from my garden....


I love these flowers....we call them black eyed Suzi.....






Ok that is all for today - I better rush over to Julia and get hoocked up with Mr. Linky! 
Have a lovely evening and a good snoop / sleep - whatever you prefere!
Oh yes forgot to mention there will be lots of crafting going on next week in my home - two mega WOYWW crafters (DONNA AND JO)  are coming to town to spend a few days with me so prepare yourself for a crafty blast! Ha, ha...
Lots of hugs to all of you,
Cardarian

WOYWW, I am almost there!

Hello my dear blogerettes and bloggers!

I hope you have started enjoying the summer weather like we have ....34 deg C ! My painting and redecorating is almost done - today my daughters boyfriend will put up the curtain rails ( he did the blinds yesterday) and I will hang up my new curtains and then my lounge and kitchen will be done! Unfortunatly my craft room is still in a bit of a mess but we have a "bank holiday" on Monday, which means we have a long weekend so I think I will finally get everything back to normal! So far I am very happy with the results...
Let me show you my desk first as our Queen Julia  says that should be up first and then I will let you peek into my kitchen and lounge....
My craft room still in a state....but it is getting better ( in comparison with last week!


On my desk you can't see anything crafty of mine but what you can see is  my new Suzi Blu book which Amazon delivered yesterday! YIPEEEEE!!!!


Here are the last of my "swaps" from our 3rd anniversary.....JULIA and LYNN sent me lovely ATCs - thank you soooo much! And I got a special lovely bunting from LLJ!!! It will be hanging on my terrace this afternoon after my daughters boyfriend puts  a nail in the wood so I can hang it up ( I can't get up ladders these days - arrrrrgh!!!!!) Thank you so much Jan - a photo will be up as soon as it will be done! Do you know that I have never had a bunting before???? I LOVE IT!!!!!

And as last here is a peek into my almost finished lounge....

and kitchen.......

So there - that is it for today! I hope you enjoyed my show and tell - I will be around to see what you have to show too!
Have a lovely day!

Lots of hugs to all of you,
Cardarian

WOYWW, I don't have a craft room!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

Been away again but believe me I have a couple of good reasons! First I am teaching my niece German - she is finishing high school and one of the exam subjects is German language so aunty is helping out, the other thing is I am suppose to get some guests from England and I decided to have my lounge and kitchen painted ( ha, ha the ones it concernes I am just joking - you are not the only reason I am doing this !), so I had to clear out everything fom those two rooms and stuff it all in the other two rooms one of which is my craft room so here is the result of that happening:
My desk.......


my craft room - don't have a shock ha, ha.....


So much junk in there - I can't even move......of course the kitchen and the lounge are all stripped down - waiting for the man to come......oh my if you leave the kitchen and the lounge out of that sentence ....well I better not go there - you can see I am going a bit mad....
 Kitchen....


and lounge....


anyway you can see that I have been very busy - I was thinking I must be mad doing all this with my knee hurting like this but I think it has to do with preparing to retire - you know how they say a women makes a "nest" when she is about to have a baby, well I think I have to redo the whole house before I retire as I won't be able to do it when I am not working - there that is my excuse! Still do not think I don't have anything crafty to show you - as I wasn't here last week I can now show you the ATCs that have been sent off  VERY late mostly because of all this going on....
Here are the ones I made - they are  all different as I don't do "series", I also tried as much techniques as possible! Ladies that are getting them please love them as they are my babies ha, ha....






So there - all done - I will come back with photos from my recent trips but please bare with me as I am a bit busy now!
Love and hugs to all
Cardarian

P.S.: I must be mad as I took a picture of all the ATCs I have already recieved but didn't add them to my post! So here they are.....

HELEN, DONNA and NEET!



WIPSO, JO and TWIGLET!


TO ALL OF YOU A BIG THANK YOU I JUST LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THEM ALL!!!!!!!!
