It's Wednesday and that can only mean WOYWW!

Morning all

What a day yesterday was? We were expecting the carpet fitter yesterday in order that we could draw a line under the marathon that started as a bit of a refresh in our spare room .. frankly, we had no idea when we started that so much would be involved. Turned from a refresh in to a total refurbishment but, we are finally at an end.

STILL stuck on the ATC making trail, I made these and I can't quite make up my mind which one I prefer .. again, they're the same but different! - I used the same components and simply different colours ... 

Mark I ATC
Materials used:
  • ATC blanks
  • Snippets of 300gsm card in gunmetal grey and rich chocolate (Newbury stash!) and 200gsm white card ... for the image panel
  • Inkadinkado row of bears stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink. I also stamped on to a post it which I cut out to use as a mask later
  • Alcohol markers to colour images including background
  • Paper Artsy splatter image along with Kaisercraft "crackle" and "mini grid" images 
  • Inks used: Delicata golden glitz, Memento rosebud, angel pink, sweet plum, bamboo leaves and Brilliance olive
  • Stardust stickles to highlight

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:
  1. Cheeky Challenge - challenge No. 25 - COMEDY or HUMOUR
  2. Tuesday Throwdown - challenge No. 301 - EXOTIC ANIMALS .. go on, tell me dancing bears aren't exotic animals!!!
  3. Crafting from the heart - challenge No. 119 - ANYTHING GOES
  4. Craft Your Passion - challenge No. 319 - ANYTHING GOES

And now, since it IS WOYWW (week #370) I shall be entering my humble workspace ...... I'm entry #13

It's amazing how one small job leads to a huge list of things to do! We call it tea-bag syndrome in our house. You know when you make a cuppa and go to put the teabag in the bin but it's full, so you empty it and change the bag, then take that to the big bin outside except THAT'S full too, so you have to change that.. Etc etc. And half an hour goes by and then the tea's gone cold. Teabag Syndrome!
I bet you're enjoying your new space though!
Hugs, LLJ xxx

Hi Kathy, loe the ATC's. It's funny how one small bit of decorating can turn into a major overhaul. Happens every time, I think. Glad you're done, it must look great now. I see you have some sets of IKEA drawers- aren't they great? Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #5 xxx

Love both the ATCs, my fave is the green one, because a) I like green, like you like purple! and b) I like that they've got the same colour ties. Love your storage units too. Those shallow drawers look terrific, just wish I could think of somewhere to put some!

What cute little bears. Love all of your Ikea drawers. Do you need a step stool to see what is in the top drawer?

Cute cards and great space. Like you said your cards are the same stamp, but with just the little changes they look so much different!
Have a great day!
