Welcome to WOYWW

Morning readers,

How's your week coming along? Well I hope - mine's doing pretty well too, thanks.

I have some more creativity to share with you and, yes, it IS another ATC. I just don't seem to be able to stop myself right now - these little works of art just keep firing my imagination. Every time I open a drawer to look for stamps to make a card an image jumps out at me ... and seems just perfect - for an ATC, what IS that all about?

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of neon pink card
  • Snippet of white card cut a little smaller than ATC size
  • Katzelkraft (Les chats russes set) image stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Stamplorations (noteworthy set) stamped using Memento tuxedo black
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils to colour image and background
  • Crafters Companion (basket and burlap set) stamped using Ranger Archival library green ink
  • Stampabilities (Cute border set) stamped using Ranger Archival mini majestic violet ink

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Crafting when we can - challenge No. 147 - USE AN IMAGE
  2. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - challenge No. 60 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Stamps and fun - challenge No. 304 - INSPIRED BY A SONG .. I used to really like this song back in the day .. "Cool for Cats" by Squeeze! Not sure I'd feel QUITE the same if it were released now but ..
  4. SUYP - challenge No. 19 - FURRYTHING GOES!
  5. Cutiepie challenge - challenge No. 112 - ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL

It was my birthday recently and I am blessed with such thoughtful friends who clubbed together and gave me an afternoon tea experience at Charingworth Manor. Hubby and I decided to make a day of it in the Cotswolds ...

It's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday ... so, here's a peek at the mess which I call my desk!

And I found out I won a TOP3 place over at Winter Wonderland, with the card below, thanks so much peeps for choosing my card

I just love that cat. It's a super ATC. What a great selection of photos. The stained glass window is beautiful but I'm really taken with the mini vegetation! Barbxx

Glad you had a great birthday Kathy and the afternoon tea looks delicious! We can see you have been busy looking at your desk, obviously lots going on, and congratulations on being in the Top 3 over at Winter Wonderland. I adore that cute singing cat and the pink and purple round the edge goes beautifully. x
