Kitchen make-over week one!

Hi there friends, I am back as promised with quick pics of our kitchen make-over for week one. The packing was the worst I think, arghh so many boxes!! they are still everywhere as we speak. Luckily we have two large conservatories front and back and a triple garage...they are all full now! Then the new kitchen arrived (not flat pack either) and so more boxes of course.

The first drama was the large van carrying our new kitchen reversing into our drive, he managed to hit the corner of our house...the roof part anyway. That cracked two ridge tiles, some cementing and a piece of guttering. Anyway that is being sorted soon and paid for so....

Then the kitchen fitters (who have been amazing I must say otherwise) managed to knock through to our bedroom as they were knocking all the plaster off etc. That is also being reinstated soon luckily. It was all going well but then the ceiling (which was very old and had been done by my OH years and years ago) was looking unstable....so that had to go too! The good news is we gained about 10" in height!

We had to get the plumber to tidy up pipework behind the sink also and take a radiator off. Other than  that it has all gone to plan lol. These are the pics of the taking apart of the kitchen, boxes everywhere and all the ceiling mess.

Glad to say we are now on week two and the plastering is done, some painting and now the units are going in too...yipee! Managing with my old fridge still, (luckily I moved it to another room)and will have new one in kitchen soon. I have a make shift kitchen in our back conservatory and a new microwave in our lounge lol so am managing.

Anyway come and see what has been happening to my old kitchen.....week two soon ;)

The boxes...old kitchen stuff in boxes and new kitchen stuff too.

The smashing up bit and start of plastering.

Oh and if you want a smile today (and haven't seen it on my Instagram page aready) ...scroll down to the bottom!

ps. Kitchen report... end of week one.Three misshaps...more about those soon! The new kitchen is coming along nicely though, lots of dust/plaster about still but it's all getting done.

Paint next, then our units go in, bit of plumbing needs doing to tidy stuff up behind the sink first. I keep going into the kitchen forgetting there is nothing there lol. My OH went to put the food shopping away there too today.... he he. Not just me then.... more soon!

The Flower Challenge #35 Reminder

Hi there friends, I am back with another reminder card for 'The Flower Challenge' again. I am using another favourite stamp of mine by Clearly Besotted again. I just love these pretty rosebuds.

As it's the 15th August when this posts our new kitchen will have been started now...at least I hope it will ! No doubt I will be awash with loads of cardboard boxes packed with all my old kitchen stuff. I hope the two weeks go quickly now. Update!...yes our kitchen has been started and now being plastered too yipee ;)

Anyway enjoy your week whatever you have planned and come and see my card below ;)

Flower Challenge, Favourite flower, Clearly Besotted

Smooth White card
Clearly Besotted stamp Thanks a Bunch
Neat and Tangled stencil Rice Paddies
Versafine Onyx Black ink
TH Distress inks
MFT Die-namics stitched die
First I made my A6 card base then added another top panel. I coloured my topper using my stencil and blended several colours of ink through it.
I stamped the flowers direct to my card topper and used a stitched edge die. I attached it all to my card base then stamped a sentiment and attached that also leaving it slightly curved.

 Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge.
Also remember to read our rules also to be in with a chance
 of a prize this time too.
You have until the 25th August to enter.
