Welcome to WOYWW!

Morning readers,

Hope your week is going well and that you are finding time to craft (or whatever hobby gives you joy). Is it hot enough for you? Crikey - was it me or was it HOT at the weekend? I had my cool towel almost permanently round me! Cool towel? ..... check here. Today is scheduled to be hotter still ... if anyone wants me, I'll be camped out - in my fridge!

I'm stuck making ATC's right now, didn't specifically decide on that but just keep making them! I've another to share with you now ....

  • Snippet of white card
  • Viva Las Vegas plate #921 image and Stamplorations sentiment (from the noteworthy set) stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Image coloured using Marvy le plume II alcohol markers, including background

What a fabulous looking card and ATC.

The white highlights on the ATC really MAKE that sentiment. Loving the shape of your Christmas card too!

Firstly congratulations for your win over at Dragons Lair Kathy, and love your ATC with that cute and funny image and the sentiment stands out beautifully with the white gel pen highlights, and then the Christmas card with the scalloped circle shape looks great and the grid design with the red spatters goes perfectly in the background. x

Come on, the colouring station is in nooooooooo way messy! I'd be delighted if my table of doom looked that good.
Love the quirky ATC and the Christmas card is fab, You probably needed to add more snow to it to cool you down. Thanks for the heads up about the towel x
