WOYWW (well sofa in my case!) 85


Happy New Year fellow WOYWWers! Not much going on with my desk this week really, there was at the weekend but have finished all work in progress! The towels are there as unfortunately there has been a bit of a leak coming through the window (just a few soggy papers, no major damage done!) Am hoping hubby is going to fix it but suspect it will involve going outside and hammering/drilling so a bit too cold for that at the mo!



More going on on the sofa this week than the desk. I have everything spread all over for inspiration and it seems to be working! I just go into the room with no fixed ideas of what I am going to make, pick random images and papers from the mess on the sofa and have made some rather nice cards as a result! Here is one I made with a decoupage image I've had lying around for yonks! Have teamed it with some freebie My Minds Eye papers I got with a mag and think it is rather pretty :-)



So if you are wondering what WOYWW is all about, pop over to Julia's blog at the Stamping Ground to join in blogland's greatest weekly blog hop!

What a cutie!


Finally got round to spending a good amount of time on some cardmaking this weekend. Great to do something other than Christmas cards (although soon be time to start again for next year...) I'm trying to do a variety of different cards for the box at work and as there are a few babies due imminently thought I would do a baby boy and a baby girl card. Haven't got round to the baby girl one as yet but here is my effort for baby boy! I used a stamp that clever hubby got me not so long ago from a car boot sale (he is very good at picking which stamps I would like out, amazing really since he isn't a crafter!)

I'm going to enter this cute card into the following challenges:

One stitch at a time - 'new' (baby and stamp!)
Totally Gorjuss - cuddly (forever friends, what more can I say?!)
Pattie's creations - anything goesPaperplay - cutie
Paperplay - cutie patootie
Allsorts - teal blue and brown
Stamp something - anything goes

Have a good Monday evening, apparently it is the most depressing day of the year today so things can only get better now if you have had a rubbish Monday ;-) I certainly hope the light improves soon, it's really hard trying to take decent photos of my cards!

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year to you all! Hope you have managed to fit in some crafting in between eating chocolate, drinking wine and going shopping in the sales ;-) I certainly have - have been in the conservatory crafting on and off for the last few days. Back to work tomorrow though unfortunately :-(

Here is one of the cards I've made over the last couple of days. I am going to enter it into the Cupcake Challenge - White is White. (Haven't quite got round to combining challenges again this year! I do have another card ready which I can enter into a few, but it is now too dark to take a photo of it, bloody winter!)

I think this one is rather cute, love Forever Friends - I've had this a while and have been rummaging through my stash so decided to use it.

Have a good Monday evening!
