More digging,chopping,shredding,compacting and some card making!

I promised to keep you informed about the build so here goes....
We all have helped even the kids
although I have to say my brother Angus
has done the majority of the very hard work.

We have pruned trees and chopped a few down that
badly needed removing for safety.
Hired a chipper - that was fun if noisy!
Filled a skip - very easily.....

Dug out loads of soil, layed hardcore and concrete blocks,
hired a compactor (that was also very noisy!)
so it's all very level and well drained.
 Now its ready to start the build.....
the kit is due to arrive Friday-
please cross fingers for good weather to continue.

Inbetween I have still been making cards.

I love this Tiddly Inks image - Cast a spell!
coloured with Promarkers,
Basic Grey Kioshi papers,
fabric flowers with fancy brad centres,
flourishes cut on Pazzles and sprayed with Cosmic shimmers
and sakura sentiment doodled.


  1. Bet you can't wait to have you own space. Love your card, really beautiful!! hugs Anesha

  2. Fabulous card Claire - love the beautiful image, the flowers and the colours.
    Can't wait to see your new craft space - you must be sooooo excited! I will have everything crossed for dry weather on the "big build day"!
    Hugs, Sylvia xxx
