Umbrella weather

Hello peeps, hope you are well.

Sorry I've been a bit quiet for the last 10 days. I've been concentrating on making cards for a magazine competition that finishes this week, as well as helping hubby clear out the back bedroom (see below).

Today's card was made with one of the beautiful toppers in the Cute Cottage Garden Art Pad by Lili of the Valley. I chose this one to go with the umbrella weather we had yesterday afternoon in Glastonbury (thankfully I was indoors most of the time!)

The background is from LOTV's Country Lady 8x8 paper pad, and the buttons & ribbon are from my stash.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
The Ribbon Girl - Everything goes with an Image
Creative Knockouts-  Clean and Simple
The Shabby Tea Room - Picture This
ABC Challenge - R is for Recipe (Pink, Flowers, Buttons)
 Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - #17 Anything Goes

 So, the back bedroom has a lovely new carpet and now we're deciding on paint colours. Yes, I know we should have painted it first, but it took so long to clear the room out that we ran out of time. I was up until 1 o'clock the night before the carpet fitters came painting the skirting board!

Since it's the room that gets the most light I've decided to take hubby up on his offer of moving my craft room in here. I'm allowed to choose new storage as well so I'm very excited. 
Mind you, I'm not entirely sure all my stuff will fit in here :D
If you have any nifty storage suggestions please leave me a comment x

Gorgeous card Kat! Love your image and DP. I know how excited I was when I finally had my husband's approval to take over a small bedroom; but it has worked out. I have the closet full as well. I wish it were bigger; but I would just have a bigger mess everyday; than I do now. Have fun fixing your new craft room. You will love it no matter how big it is. The more light the better.

Your card is so pretty and I love the image with the gorgeous floral DP.

A new crafting exciting! You probably spotted I am in the middle of planning the revamp of my craft room too but I am not sure I have any particularly good storage tips. I do love the little plastic drawer units I have though; they are from Storage 4 Crafts.

I hope you have fun organising everything!

Big hugs, Kat xx
