Good Morning WOYWW ers, and note I've said morning yes I am off work this week and thought I'd start my Chrimbo cards and am probably the only person wishing for rubbish weather so I can stay indoors without an pangs of guilt, and as I type the heavens have opened, looks like the washing will be on the maiden in the conservatory today and the weeds in the garden will just have to stay a little while longer ROFL.

I thought I had all the time in the world having a week off, but it's Wednesday already and I've only managed to do three 8x8 cards (two pics below and the one on my desk), and a couple of 6x6. May have to make a mammoth amount and try to sell as manay as I can, as DD has been selected as one of the West Yorkshire Guides to go on an International Trip next summer and we have to fund raise approx £1700. Am feeling very nervous about it as DD is so laid back she's horizontal, and so not organised, have to open a bank account and keep the accounts as have to present them after the trip, can feel a panic attack coming on, lol. But must also add am very very proud of her and any ideas gratefully received.

Phew! well now that's off my chest back to my desk, there's the same old stuff lingering, but it's as I left it yesterday afternoon and just got to mount the card onto an 8x8 card blank, actually it's quite messy for me, usually tidy away, think the stems from crafting in the kitchen and having to tidy everything away when I'd finished.

Yes Anne I know about the clear Timmy stamps, they have been on Inkylicious web site for a few weeks, (sorry peeps, just talk amongst yourself for a minute, no credit on phone so cannot reply to texts and apart from walking the dog not left the house since Saturday, lazy mare arn't I), you know me, no restraint will buy them all and think about the consequences later, but DD still needs some curtains, so may have to have a little train journey tomorrow, without OH, LOL.

Well have a lovely Wednesday all and don't forget to drop in on Julia, xxxx

My Potatos and a Birthday Card

I can post this card as I know Anne (Liverpoollou) has received it. It is sort of Wendy V stylee but I don't have any of her stamps, they are on my very long wish list, LOL. I have inked up a piece of paper with DI, stamped with dotty stamp and TH swirly stamp, the flower stamps and the dots were from the Artistic Stamper, the flowers are stamped on grunge paper, overlaid with the dots and coloured with DI's, think the chipboard frame is from the pound shop, coloured and stamped

It's very muggy in my little room today, I can see the trees blowing gently in the wind but cannot open my window as there is too much stash piled up on the window sill, although it has not been cold up ere int Yorkshire we've had lots of cloud and rain, but this has helped my tatoes to grow and am very excited, as below is a photo of my very first attempt at growing something, Ta Dah, we saw them peeping out last week so decided to pull some up this weekend. They were lovely roasted on Sunday and scrummy as mash last night, but we have decided to leave the rest of them a few more weeks as some at the top were quite small.

Am going to be more organised next year and do a crop of new pots too, just wish I had a big enough garden for a veggie patch, as the drive may be covered with grow bags next year, my carrots are coming along nicely too, although my OH did say that there only enough for one meal, well I am only having a go, as not done it before, would like to have a go at other veggies but there is a lack of space.

Well a big Hello all you WOYWWer's, hope you are all tickety boo. Am hanging head in shame as had to stop myself from getting settled on the pc for the last couple of weeks as had card orders coming out of my ears, not that I'm complaining. Have felt an ickle bit mojoless at times so some probably taken longer than I would have liked. Will stop my waffle and tell you whats on my desk as of Tuesday evening, a new home card that I think is completed, you know what it's like "Does it need something else?", that's usually when I make a bit cock up, Bo Bunney papers, the usual stuff that never gets cleared away, a couple of painted images and a half done card. Have a lovely Wednesday all sending big squishies, and if you happen by my blog by accident please take a look a Julia's blog and see what's going on.

Sunday Stampers - Blue

Here's my entry for last week, have had it done for ages, just not had time to come onto the pc and post it, pop over to the luscious Hel's blog and check out the theme for this week .
Was out early doors yesterday as had booked my hubby and daughter on Go Ape at Dalby Forrest , didn't book a place for myself as was not sure I would be able to get my fat BTM up the cargo nets, but wished I had as it looked great fun and they both had a great time, and I wished I had had a go on those zip lines too. Nearly done all my card orders so hope to have more time later this week. Have fun all. xx

Sunday Stampers - Pearls

I know there's a new one so there! But these are the two entries I have for last week, a tag which has not scanned very well, no news there then!, and a 21st card I have made for a friend at work who's birthday is on Thursday, and all the girls are going out for a curry on Wednesday, am looking forward to that, yum.
Hope you are having a lovely Sunday, not yet got the rain that was forecast but is quite dark and breezy now, will see if I can do something for this week, shouldn't be a problem I have loads of request for cards I need to get through and am sure I can add plenty of gems.
