Mother's Day/Special Female With Crafty Calendar Challenge

Hi all you wonderful peeps! Today is our monthly challenge over at Crafty Calendar and the theme this month is Mother's Day/Special Female. We are sponsored by the fabulous Day For Daisies and the prize is 3 digi's
We are also sponsored this month by Wild Orchid and the prize is £10 Voucher to spend in their store!!! they have some really gorgeous crafty goodies. So we have two fab prizes up for grabs!! and that means two winners again this month

Well where to start LOL! We had a new bathroom installed for easier access for Paul ..so you know how it is girls you do one room and every room gets messy...so after that was finished (looks gorgeous by the way) I decided to tackle the living room as we had bought new furniture...well I got it started and then Paul got rushed in again..so he's in and out of hospital..I've got two dogs to sort out and walk and a bungalow that looked like a bomb had hit it!!!! Anyway room is finished ..new furniture came yesterday..new curtains up, new blinds in all the rooms and now waiting for a new washer and dishwasher to be delivered today. We have had one of the rooms made into a utility room so it's now just waiting for the washer to be put in ...and then I think I can finally chill fingers crossed and next time I'm getting a decorator in hahahaha! Woody has recovered well from his testibules being removed  and 'his lordship' is his usual self ..he's 7 years old next week so he will be getting a few extra treats LOL. I hope you are all in good health and thanks for visiting me and leaving your lovely comments. Take care and lots of hugglessssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxx

Welcome back Sue and it sounds as if you've had a real busy time of it, but worth it I'm sure.
Sorry to hear that Paul has been poorly again, I hope he is improving and gets better soon.
Gorgeous card, love the image and the monochrome colours are wonderful and that little splash of red makes it all pop. Take care of yourself, hugs Kate x

Hello Sue. What a beautiful card, you certainly haven't lost your talent. Sorry to hear about John and I know the extra work that can bring. The house will look gorgeous once all the work is finished and then you can both enjoy it. Hugs to you both. Rita xxxx

Sammy said...

Beautiful card Sue!
Sorry to hear about hubby being ill still (and hey, mine's a Paul too!), and can echo the "decorators next time" sentiment, after we did our son's room over Christmas, and the house is still a shambles after that! Make sure you take some time out for you hun. x

OMG you have had your hands full, I suspect it was all worth it though? Hope hubby is feeling better than he was and you are coping with everything. (as you have to)

Your card is stunning, Love the B&W and the image just touched with colour - gorgeous.
