My new craft room

Well here it is - at last
My very own purpose built craft room . I started off years ago on the dining table , then progressed to a corner of the bedroom .We decided that i should have a separate room for crafty stuff so we had a conservatory built , not a huge one just perfect for me .
Then in January my daughter left home so i moved into her bedroom and made the conservatory into the dining room.Great i thought , nice big room to work in - however my 8 yr old daughter had other ideas she wanted the big room .I said there was no way my two desks would fit in there - its a tiny box room .I said i would only have it if it was all fitted out with worktops and shelving
Wish granted ! - i did nt know that I would be the one who would be fitting them ! - silly me should have realised i do everything else around here !
anyway it took me best part of a week to do  and here it is . .. . .. . . . . .

I♥PROMARKERS challenge #20 - a sketch

This is the sketch for this weeks challenge at I♥PROMARKERS this week  it is sponsored again by Digi Doodles 
For some strange reason the colour of the roses on the cake have nt come out the same as they look in real life , infact i dont know what has happened to the colours altogether in this picture . The flowers and the background should look like a cerise pink but they look more orangey  - so im not very happy with this one at all . i could nt get another photo as it had to get sent off to reach the recipients in time for the wedding which was last weekend .

I♥PROMARKERS challenge #19 teddy bears

 WOAH what a week , i have been without my craft room since sunday so no Pc , printer or pen has passed through my hands other than to relocate it to its new home .
I now have a spanking new craft room after lots of hard work , i emptied the room ,painted it then fitted worktops and shelving and am just in the process of moving it all back in . Th e new room is much smaller than i had before ,but since it has proper workspace now i should be better off (she says hopefully ).
My back is killing me and i have crafting withdrawal symptoms but im sure it will all be worth it .Im just waiting on some more shelving to arrive and then i will be done .I'm having a rest tomorrow and looking after Baby Sam -if i can get up of course !
 Anyway here is my card for this weeks I♥PROMARKERS challenge ,i used a freebie image  from here . i cut the letters with my bug using SCAL and then embossed with swiss dots and inked with gold ink then mounted them on top of the shadow letters

Diva !

This one is  for a friend's god-daughter for her 21 st , the brief was something feminine and i  thought of this  Mo Manning image "diva" immediately . It is a fairly new release and one that I just had to have !
I have added sparkle to her jewellery , her boa and her shoes with a sakura glitter pen but it has nt photographed particularly well.
