Cupboards, card and sssshhhh its a secret!!

OK, cupboards first since i had a request to show pictures :) The paint is lovely and i adore Laura Ashley anyway (couldnt you just move straight into one of their stores! *swoon* ) The colour is biscuit and i bought it ages ago when i made over a sideboard (which is still holiding up well!) The colour goes perfectly with the tiles and oven! lolI made a little mini card with the Stampin Up Fun and Fast note stamps. I coloured the pram using COPIC caio markers, inked the edge in soft pink chalk ink and layered it onto Basic Grey patterned paper :)
Heres my secret........................Im going on a date tonight and dh doesnt know about it!! (he is out all day too so wont read my blog until its too late!)

Before you all gasp in horror at my confession i need to confess its my gorgeous hubby im going out with ......for the first time ON OUR OWN WITHOUT KIDS in probably over 8 years!!.
I have this fabulous friend who i met through stamping who is just about the only person i would trust with the kids (besides family but even then one sis has her own girl, another sis just isnt into kids and my mum lives 200 miles away!) - bearing in mind i have 4 boys that would run circles round a circus ringleader! Claire is as wacky as the boys and can no doubt tire them out before they wear her out!

I thought it would be a nice suprise to just have hubbies clothes ready for him tonight and once Claire turns up tell him that we are having our first date night :) So excited!! xxxSo cool - look at todays sentiment on the calender!! *click for bigger pic*

  3. what a lovely idea!! oh i want to do it as well :-D

  4. The cupboards have turned out well! and yes....I really love LA...I used to work part time in one of the stores....oh happy days!xxxx

  5. The cupboards look good, i've been wanting to do mine, but always worry how they'll end up. Any advice on getting it right? Also where is that calendar from please? i love it. Have a good 'first date' with your hubbie!! x

  6. Love the kitchen, love the card! Have a great date with your hubby, make the most of some twosome time!
