Celebrate and Craftroom update

What a contrast in the weather today. Thank goodness it has been cooler than yesterday and much fresher with a good rain this afternoon. Didn't like the thunder and lightning though. Last night was so hot and humid it was hard to sleep.

I've used one of my older LOTV stamps for this card which my friend ordered. I used Papermania Blueberry Pie papers and some lovely spotted ribbon and flowered card candi. I thought this card would then be suitable for either male or female.

Challenges:
Delicious Doodles Cute and cuddly
Dream Valley Ribbon
Crafty Cardmakers Spots and stripes
Oldie but a Goodie Anything Goes
Willow Sketchie Great sketch

It's lovely to know that so many of you are interested in my craftroom so here's the latest pic. The blind and shelves are up, painting and electrics all done and the desks and chair are coming on Thursday. The shelves are designed mainly for punches and jars of flowers which is why they are so narrow. Isn't the bunting gorgeous. I bought it at a craft fair. I've started to move some stuff into the cupboard on the other side but most of my stash is still downstairs so Thursday will be a busy day moving it all and having a good sort out. We're off to the Royal Norfolk Show tomorrow so won't be around but hope to have a bit of time to catch up with you on Thursday before the desks arrive. I'll take more pics once it is finished.

Great card Marianne, your room looks as though it is coming along fine, looking forward to seeing the finished result. Hope the weather is kind to you tomorrow. I remember when I was at school (many years ago) we used to go to the Royal Norfolk show for a school outing - I used to live in Gorleston.
