Bubble Bloom.

Good morning all.I hope you are all well.I am off to work soon.Oh what a day yesterday, the builders next door were building the roof apex`s with breezeblocks, then came the rain and they dissapeared.I was sitting reading the paper and i heard the loudest bang, one apex had collapsed in the strong winds sending breeze blocks and wet mortar all over my garden.I picked my laddo up from school and we had been home 10 minutes when we heard another crash and the other apex had collapsed, so more mortar but luckily only 1 brick that time falling again on my garden.I have taken pics to show my landlord the mess and also to show they have no protection mesh around the top of the scaffold which would of caught the raining breezeblocks.
So i am rather pleased to be going out the house soon and the garden is now out of bounds until the eyesore is done and finished.
Right enough of waffle and on to my card which is what you have popped by to see.
No challenges for this one.
Products used are:
Cream card
First Edition papers
Ribbons
Woodware bubble bloom felicity stamp and sentiment
Mint promarker and Rose peach flexmarker
Card Candi
Pearls
Stickles - stardust
Distress ink - Antique Linen

Close up of the stamp

And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by,means a lot ;D
Hugs Nic.xx

What a lovely card and colour scheme. The card candi works so well with this stamp and the layout you've chosen sets the stamp off perfectly.

Hi, Nic! What a drama! Hope the builders get a real telling off! How ridiculous to try and build apexes in yesterday's weather...so dangerous - thank goodness nobody was hurt!

Sorry to hear about what's happened, especially annoying after you spent so much time on your garden too and it was lucky you and your family weren't in the garden, when it happened, Luv Sam x

Love your pretty design and colours Nic, made a gorgeous card here. Hope your putting your bill into them and there seems to be an issue with health and safety here! Carolxx

Tanya said...

This is beautiful Coops, I love the fresh colours! So gorgeous :)

Sorry to hear about your garden mess, just after all your work on it and everything! :( That really is the pits :( Thank goodness no one was injured though and that you're all safe. Hopefully it'll all be finished soon and in a few years' time it'll all just be a distant memory :)

Alison Scott said...

A beatiful card.
Such a shame about the building chaos. That doesn't sound as though health and safety are aware. Maybe a wee call to them will prompt a visit and you can get your garden back.

Sheena said...

Hi Nic, another gorgeous card with a beautiful colour combo!

I hope they don't cause you too much more disruption in your garden, they don't sound to safety savvy! You're probably better to avoid the garden for a while to stay safe!

Hi! really pretty card,love all the gorgeous detail Coops and the double ribbon too.Oh hope they sort it soon,not nice at all with summer around the corner.hugs Lou.xx

Linda Compton said...

Oh how I love this one. I am assuming the buds are candy and stickles. But they are just absolutely stunning. I will have to be on the lookout for them. Wow! So glad you and your son weren't hurt in the brick disaster. Sounds like a building code was not being followed. Be careful, there could be other problems from the shoddy work.

Jacqueline said...

Such a pretty design,the colours and candi along with the pearls look stunning,been unsure about this product in the past but now I have seen your creation I really like it, love the colours you have used along with the detailed candi. Love it.Jacqueline.S
