A very good morning to you. I hope life finds you well and enjoying the lovely weather we are having....I have never known it so hot !!!

WOYWW  has once again arrived thanks to Julia at The Stamping  Ground... hop by and nosey at the kaleidoscope of delights which is, of course, the incredible desks of fellow crafters. This week seems to have come around very very abruptly, alas there is not much to show on my desk... actually nothing!.... its empty, desolate of any craftiness whatsoever waiting  for some free time and creativity from my good self; I am sure others will have much more inspirational spaces for you to delve into.

The combination of very hot weather meaning spending time outdoors and generally being very busy has kept me away.  I had not posted any of the ATC's from the big WOYWW 8th  Anniversary swap and I thought it was about time I shared my work before the event comes around posting hasn't been exactly what you might call regular!

Warning a bit photo heavy...for each ATC I also made a little wallet and a colour co-ordinated card.... all a bit different in design and style, on several  I made use of my recent purchase of Tonic ATC dies, which I really enjoy mixing and matching. 


I hope you are having a great week wherever you are and whatever you're up to. I will be back to visit after work lo see what other WOYWWers  have been creating,something to look forward too and maybe some inspiration
Big crafty hugs until then Andrea XX

A very happy and welcoming Wednesday to everyone.Time to nosey around the WOYWWer's desks thanks to Julia at The Stamping Ground up and let us share in your crafty goodness.

I have exciting news and a card. My daughter announced last week that she and her partner got engaged๐Ÿ’ They have been together 9 years and I've watched them grow into kind, considerate and wonderful adults. No confirmed date as yet. I'm very happy for them both and wish them a happy healthy and long loving life together ๐Ÿ’•

Making a card was difficult so I decided to go digital using a photo of them with a few crafty additions in the matting and the brads. I tried to keep it simple and sort of managed that!..

Below is my rather messy desk and a card finished for a friend. ATC's  I've sent I  will post next week ... Sorry to Chris and Shaz for their very very late arrivals. Chris sent a  beautiful ATC and selection of wonderful goodies.  A great assortment...they will be such fun to use, I will keep you posted when I do.

I am working today but will be back this evening to catch up with desks. I hope you have a great week .thanks for visiting .crafty hugs Andrea x

It's a very happy Wednesday...and can only mean it's WOYWW over at The Stamping Ground. Julia our fabulous host has just celebrated eight glorious years (WOYWW 416) of allowing us to get a sneaky peek at each other's desks. I missed last weeks...I seem to spend all my time trying to catch up with everyone...apologies if haven't reached you yet. 
The postman delivered me some beautiful ATC's and cards below from in order from top row Angela, Claire, Julia, Shaz and Jan....aren't they all just stunning and so individual, just like their personalities ...I just love them, thank you ever so much. Hopefully, everyone will have received theirs by now... as I was a little late in posting them, oops!   

Beautiful ATCs received 
There isn't much to show for the last two weeks, messing about with some new bits and bobs below I've several birthday cards to make in the coming few months, one being my sisters fabulous 50. ...eek that means I'm next in the family!! I haven't any idea as yet what to do, planning now. Pinterest and Blogger being my sources of inspiration...although my brain is overloaded a bit....I've also some personal issues at work playing on my mind.๐Ÿ˜”....hopefully, I can sort it out. 
bits 'n' bobs 
It's been great taking part in the 8th Anniversary WOYWW and I will share them next week as some went abroad and they might not have received them yet. 
Have a great week and weekend ahead. I've an appointment to attend to this morning. but will be back again later today.Crafty hugs and thank you for visiting will be back soon.   Andrea XX
