Papertake Weekly Challenge # 20

This is the sketch for this weeks challenge over at Papertake Weekly.
And this is how I solved it this time:

I have used pale green bazzill as my base, green magic mesh, a lovely stamp from Penny Black and a sentiment stamp from somewhere else ( I do not remember ), and some patterned paper from another place I do not remember.
The colors I have used is normally not my style, but you have to try out different things once in a while, right?

Waiting for vacation time!!!!

Whilst I am waiting for it is time to go on vacation and in lack of something better to do in the rainy weather we have had for some weeks now I thought I could share some pictures with you.

And I have also taken some pictures of my cleaned craftroom/guestroom/office. Before I cleaned up this room at least enough to get a space for me to sit when I am doing my cards etc I used my hole living room and I do not think my friends thought it was so much fun sitting down in my papers, embellishments etc.
