Do not read this post unless you are sitting down or holding onto something sturdy because I have something to tell you which may shock you...........OK are you holding on?.....................Today I have at long last papered one of the walls on the lower staircase..........yes I shocker isn't it?!!!
For anyone just passing by this won't mean much but regular readers will know how long this job has been ongoing and the end is finally in sight. onto the card. Free papers and a free stamp. I have altered the paper a little by drawing around the circles in black to tone in with the black card layer. Added a couple of flowers with Card Candy centres.
All the cards I made yesterday have been finshed with inserts and bagged........another shocker as I usually leave that job until it can't be put off any longer and now I am working on what I call a special hobby card......for a male and not covered by the usual things like sport and stuff. Hope to finish that tomorrow.

I'm nearly at the end of the Dan Brown book The Lost Code and really don't want it to end. On the other hand I can't wait for the end of something I am watching with DD at the moment. It's a pilot series called Warehouse 13 and it's the biggest pile of garbage I have ever seen but something that you hope will get better. Sadly tomorrow we will watch the last two episodes and I'm sure my hopes will be blasted to!!!

Right I am off to see if I can price up a rope bannister. Mr Manic has said we can replace our horrible old wooden one.......yay!!!

Thanks for your visit.


  1. Well done with the papering Sheila. Now .......... if you have some spare time you can come and do mine if you like, Lol!

    Love the card with the freebie stamp. Is it me or have that particular mags free stamps improved recently? I certainly think so.

  2. Well done Sheila ! We have a kitchen that's like your stairs. Still wating for architrave and skirting board over 12 months after it was fitted !

    I love your card, the freebie stamp is just gorgeous. It just so happens I used it myself, which you will see on Wednesday (had to buy the big version too!)
