Floor progress, and a wedding card…




Hello everybody, blimey another week has flown by…   where on earth does the time go?

We’ve got the workmen in this week sorting out the hole in our floor, the wet rot has all been burned away, new joists put in, and the wood and bricks all treated so hopefully that should be the end of the problem




It’s horrible thinking that this has been under our floor for goodness knows how many years, this is a few days on when it’s started to dry out so you can imagine how horrendous it was when Keith first looked, OMG

The foot size hole you can see in the board is where my Sister in Law fell through, it was quite funny…

ok, it was actually hilarious!

…and you can’t see but there is a matching one at the other side where Keith fell through on Sunday, he pulled the curtain down, that was hilarious too




…looking a bit better now, Manny thought he was project manager!!

Plastering and skirting boards tomorrow and then we have to start decorating, but, that means the other rooms will all look scruffy and we’ll probably end up doing the whole downstairs!



Jess is going to a wedding on Saturday and asked me for a special card as it is a good friend of hers. I’d seen this pretty shaped card on Teresa Allday’s blog and wanted to try it for a while...




Here’s what I used;

Doohickey heart border

Image from one of the discontinued LOTV art pads

Centura pearl card

NitWits Mr & Mrs papers

Stickles stardust glitter and gems from the Ribbon Girl

The front flap lifts up and I decorated the inside to match (although I forgot to take a picture)

The names and date are printed on vellum and then I just stuck it at either side with a tiny blob of glue and covered with a gem

Hope you like it, here’s a link to the original tutorial and here is the version by Teresa if you fancy a go



Right, time for a nice soak in the bath for me! I can’t wait to get stuck in and have a good clean, we seem to have been surrounded by muck and dust for weeks!

Enjoy the rest of your week crafters





  1. Beautiful card Anne...very pretty. I am sure the recipients will love it...hope the weather improves for them. As for your floor...well what can I say but one job leads to another two...or three...doesn't it! I remember Alan putting his foot through the ceiling once when he was in the funny...he didn't laugh much though!!

    1. Thanks Carole, no Keith didn't laugh either but I did!

  2. Oh my... such a big hole in your floor! It's very impressive! I'm so glad that now it has been covered. Poor your sister in law, she has been very unlucky!
    Your wedding card is a true delight, instead! :) Love the design with the flat panel and all the heart borders on the edges! And the LOTV image is supersweet!! Great trick covering the glue on the vellum with the gems, if you haven't say it, I have never tought it!
    Enjoy your relaxing bath! :)
