Hi Peeps,
Well here we are another week gone and its Wednesday again,
so that means WOYWW.
I've been playing around with ideas for the ATC swaps.
So if any of the lovely people who have visited me, and left  their
lovely comments, would like to swap
(or would just like one any way) please email  me with your contact
On my desk this week are some flowers using Tim Holtz Tattered
Florals die and my daughters cream felt jacket,
(apparently she didn't like it any more) and it was like new.Soooo
instead of sending it to the charity shop I cut it up to make flowers,
I did feel a tad guilty, but never mind needs must lol.
I coloured the edges and added stickles to some, and I love them.
I also inked up the Coffee Break stamp from LOTV, and  started
to colour it ready to make a card.

 Thanks for looking, look forward to hearing from any ATC swapees.

Hi Peeps,
Well I have been busy tweaking my craft room yesterday and today,
I am trying to create more space, for more stuff and it is proving
difficult to say the least. You know how it is when you really should
get rid of some stuff, to make way for new stuff, but you just can't
bring yourself to part with anything.
So there is no pic of my work desk today,but thought I would share
what I made on it recently.
This is a birthday book I made for Emma a lovely friends 21st Birthday.
She is  a Tattooist, who does her own art work and is making a name
 for herself in the tattooing industry.
All the papers are odds and ends from my stash and all the sentiments
were done on the computer.
I really like how it turned out.

It doesn't show up too well in the pic, but this paper is beautifully embossed and glittered.

Bought these lovely flock and rhinestone letters at the NEC.

I love this paper.

Papermania buttons on this page.

On this page I used a butterfly fabric and cut out a few of the butterflies stuck them to card
    and decoupaged them.

I used  the Spellbinders labels 11 die for all the sentiments.
I was having a last look at  my efforts before leaving to give Emma her gift when I noticed I had missed an 'S' off the word  'hopes', ******, I thought.!!!  My husband said it made it unique....... Bless!

This is beautiful flocked wrapping paper.

.  I used the Cuttlebug  Happy Birthday embossing  folder on the front and back covers.

 I used  the Spellbinders labels 11 die for all the sentiments.

Hope you all had a great day WOYWW ing.
Thanks for peeking

Hello peeps, not much going on on my desk this week, I have
been feeling yucky all week so tidied up my desk ready for action.
I have been You Tubeing, and watching all sorts of tutorials, 
one on crochet flowers,so on my desk there are a few crochet flowers
I made, and also a wooly 'thing' lol. I am just following a tutorial for a
more elaborate crochet flower, but I need to buy some decent
thread really. On Saturday I popped in to Lilli of the Valley's open
weekend,I would have liked to have taken one of Bev Rochesters
workshops but I thought I would be in Scotland on those dates so
I didn't book a place. Silly me !
Any way as you can see I bought two stamps from the new release,
'Yee Haa' and the Vintage labels sentiments.
I also bought a couple of raffle tickets,and 'guess what'................
I didn't win lol.
