HM challenge #27 and colour create

I almost missed this week's chellenge on the house mouse challenge blog because I've been so busy with everything else. I'm trying to finish my easter swap project and I've noticed how much fun it is to sew the Tilda stuff from my new book I got for Valentine's.

This week's challenge was to use chipboard and I don't have much, but I remembered I had a little box of chipboards from K&Co. I found the perfect little piece where it says "bloom". I also decided to use the colours orange, yellow and green that was on colour create. I thought it worked out great with this stamped image. I decided to cut it out with one of my CB tags because a part of the stamped image was blurry. This way I could use the image, even if it wasn't perfect allover :)

I'm quite happy today because we managed to put up two decorative shelves for my small items by my corner. It was quite a project because our walls are crooked and I don't quite know what they are made of. It's like concrete and then when you drill through the first layer it starts crumbling, almost like there are pebbles behind. But after 3 different packs of screws, 2 different packs of those plastic plugs and a whooole lot of stress and measuring (not to mention weeks of delaying and 2 days of actual setting them up) we finished. Are you surprised I avoid anything that has to with drilling in this apartment? LOL ...Yeah, it's fun now, but it wasn't earlier.
I'll show you pics later of how it turned out. For now I'm happy I made a card, haven't really felt like it lately. Slightly different and not at all like everyone else's. For the first time that doesn't bother me :)




Tomorrow I will close the hÄnglar charity sale. Some of the stamps haven't even gotten any bids. You can find a link to the right if you're interested.
