Disruption for a couple of days

Good afternoon! I thought I'd better do a post to let you know that my visits to blog land might be disrupted for a couple of days. The reason is that we have a rotten joist under the front room floor. This room houses my PC and all my craft stuff, so bit by bit I'm having to move it into various places around the house. We did have a piano too, but that was heading towards our cellar so quickly we decided it could go. The keyboard we have will come downstairs in it's place once it is all finished. We have a fab builder who is fairly confidant that he can sort it in a day (two tops) and so normal service should be resumed by the weekend.
Before I disappear I'll just show you a couple of cards.
 First up is Meg's birthday card, made using a sweet pea fairy, some Artylicious essence of nature papers and some of the rolled roses I've been making recently. The next are two Easter cards stamped with a wild rose studio stamp called 'sheep for ewe'. I don't do much cute, but I know this will go down a storm with Steve's mum and several friends, so it leaped into my basket on our last visit to Sir Stampalot. The daisy swirl in the background is an aspects of design stamp (Kay Carley) available from the Stampman.

 I'm entering these into the following challenges:
Craft your days away - Easter
My time to craft  - Easter Wishes

 Finally here is another creation from the blog girl day at sir stampalot. This was a project we made with Chris. It is going to sit on my desk and look after the post its I seem to accumulate. The dragon is another Wild rose studio stamp and those gorgeous papers are from Stella Rose.
Thanks for looking and wish me luck with the floor! I'll be back!!!!

Oooh poor you, Sally! I hate that sort of disruption. That's why I hate decorating too. Hope you get through it without too much stress and very quickly.

The cute Easter cards and box from your blog girl day are all lovely but favourite has to be Megan's birthday card. Love the colours and beautiful image. I've been making some of those rolled roses from handmade tissue paper tonight.
I bet Megan loved it.
