Tiles and flowers

Good saturday evening to you all! well saturday when I am posting it but maybe not when you read it! haha!

I was asked to make a birthday card in a rush for a lovely lady turning 90!
WOW to get the that age and be fairly healthy and independent too...

I needed to make this card quickly so I have used my trusty sketch
fishtails are nice and simple and fast to make so with a few layers card done.

A couple of challenges for me to join in with are:

Charisma Cardz - Birthdays
Seize The Birthday - Birthday card with numbers
Divas by Design - Let's Celebrate

Ok so what is the Tile part of my post title then?
Up until Christmas we had a really rubbish main bathroom and decided to rip it out and refurbish it ourselves, on the 27th December 2013 we started work...
I took great pleasure ripping all the tiles off...
and my Husband the bath! haha! 
Going going....
Opps GONE!

So we also decided that none of us like the bath so we would not get another!
and so my Husband built a partition to house the shower pipes and valves 

Then he put in some new spot lights
And ripped and cleaned off rubbish paper the builders apply to ceilings

So we still have loads to do
but the Tiling started a few days ago and as we are both back to work its evenings and weekends now but we are getting there!
This was yesterday with the shower now it and tiled and the valve in and connected
but... its not siliconed yet so not in use... 
Its looking quite good hu! 
I'll show you when the whole room is finished!
Well time for bed got to get cracking tomorrow!
