Welcome to WOYWW


Hope you've all been enjoying the recent good weather .. or are you (like me) wilting? Had a lovely day out with a pal yesterday .. I'm going to harp on about the lunch but, suffice it to say, I didn't pay for mine! ('nuff said - nor will I name and shame the restaurant). We treated ourselves on the way home, with a trip to The Range ... want to see what I bought?

Coffee, cake AND stash - PERFECT

  • Snippets of card in burgundy (textured) and white

  • Stampendous (CRE250) sentiment stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink 
  • White Tsukineko gelly roll Gel pen used to highlight sentiment and doodle border

  3. Through The Craft Room Door - July 18th challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  4. Lemon Shortbread - challenge No. 46 - ANYTHING GOES

And on to a small Christmas project .. in an attempt not to be in a panic when the time comes to wrap my gifties! I'm thinking kraft paper but with some OTT ribbon!

My tags
And a close up to show colour and shine

  • Kraft tags
  • Recollections candy cane stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink

I've not entered for a while because I've had issues with my wrist but .. I kind of miss visiting everyone - HAPPY WOYWW peeps, see you shortly

Morning Kathy. Great tags and ATC - well done. I've thought about Christmas.... and that's as far as it's got - although I did have some Christmas things on my stall last week - and they were the most popular! Thanks for the visit - I'll give your best wishes to Mr and Mrs D.
Take care. God bless.

Glad your poor lunch out led to some new stash to cheer you up Kathy. I love your cute rat ATC and your candy cane tags are just great. You are certainly getting ahead for Christmas and your workspace is testament to that as it looks as though you have been busy. x

Thanks for the visit earlier - he was away and up there before I could stop him! then I thought PJ would fall .... but they both had great fun!
I just love those rats stamps, did you get them from The Range? We have a branch on the other side of town and if they sell those stamps then I think I need to pay them a visit!!
Have a good week

I hope your wrist is on an improving incline, it's very frustrating. And sore. I like the tags very much; I'm with you - some schmanzy ribbon and they'll be fabulous on a gift. I love the heat, I must say; just about in the habit of waking up to lovely sunshine and today it's just grey and muggy. Ach!

Bubbles said...

awww... you missed us?! lol.
Hope your wrist is ever-improving!
I adore that 'Ta-Dah' mouse ATC... it's great and just put a smile on my face :)
Have a great day! :)
