In the Pink!

Hello friends

Hope you all had a good weekend, a busy one here.

A project for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today, a pink card to
commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I've used the 3D Foam Hearts for the central feature.
 The very pretty papers are Graphic 45 - Botanical Tea.
All the details are here and if you can please leave a comment on the Crafty Power Blog
I would be really grateful.

The wood treating of the cabin has begun...
it is nice and natural.  
Vinyl flooring purchased and that is also down, more photos to follow.
The next task is moving stuff out of the shop into the cabin, the expression
"quarts into pint pots" springs to mind! 

Take care friends, I'm back soon.

Hi Christine and Family.
Your cabin looks lovely. Good luck with the move. Christine is it also a home for the big eight leged creatures? thats what puts me off lol. Take care all and have fun. Kitty

Gorgeous card Christine, love the look of your cabin! I see Kitty mentioned it might me a lure for spiders, well I actually don't see many in mine at all & it's often neglected for days at a time whilst I craft indoors. This spring we took everything out to paint it again & only one appeared. They freak me out but I did rescue it, let it loose in the garden, only for the poor thing to be snapped up by one of the hens! Hugs Carole Z xx

Hi Christine, looks like you are making progress with the move. Quarts into point puts, well if the men I know were doing the job the result would be a disaster, but we women seen to have the organisation gene and can achieve miracles so I have confidence you will succeed. As for the spiders, I was told they only live in die places so every time I see one in the house I TRY to think positively and say that at least the house is dry.
Love the simplicity of the card, less is so often more
Love and hugs
Linda x x x

Good morning Christine,
Wow looking good so far, I bet your fingers are itching to get moving in, you will be amazed at what you will be able to fit in, look around at ikea etc gorgeous some storage solutions, they have some fantastic ideas!
Pop some conked in the corners, they repel spiders, failing that the kittens seem to love them!

Morning Christine,
Love your card, very pretty, I have these papers they are lovely.
Log cabin looking good, I don't mind spiders, mind you I would not be happy if I found one of those poisonous that can be imported in with bananas.

Hi Christine
The cabins looking good, and I'm sure you will be able to fit everything in it. I love the card you have made, I lost my niece to breast cancer 5 years ago and it was the worst time ever for her parents and she was an only child and kept putting off getting married and having children. They had just decided to do both when she had it and then the brain tumours that killed her.

Ann said...

Hi Christine

Beautiful card clean and simple and such pretty coloured paper and flowers.

The log Cabin is looking great know what you mean about quarts and pint pots I am in the midst or tidying and sorting my craft stash some things have not seen the light of day in years amazing how we collect things lol :-)

Read somewhere that if you place conkers (from horse chestnut tree) in the corners of a room the spiders do not like the oil in them think its called Badedas ? spelling hope that helps.

Hugs Annxx
