Happy WOYWW I missed last week as we  couldn't get online so have a bit of catching up still to do, why don’t you hop over to The Stamping Ground and check out what everyone is up to this week the fabulous host Julia will make you most welcome. We had a wonderful week away which was bliss, had a great time and back relaxed and ready for anything. I will hopefully post some pics when I get them sorted. I’ve now caught up with all the mundane household tasks, food shopping. The washing and unpacking is finished as ever took far too much. Not a lot of crafting to show although I did get a little bit of stamping and die cutting finished and started some colouring before work yesterday. Hopefully will make it into a card at the weekend; using the pretty blue papers that I’ve been hoping to use for the past couple of weeks. I’m off to visit some “WOYWWERS” before I need to head off too work. Hope you have a fab day and week, thanks for popping by hugs…Andrea x

  14. Thanks for the visit to my place and the nice words!!
    I so envy people that can work tidily like you! I always promise myself I will work more tidily and then spend less time tidying up but it never happens!! That's a lovely image and papers - can we have a photo of the end result please?!?!?
    Have a good week

  15. Hi Andrea, thanks for visiting and taking time to leave a comment. I surfed back over to visit, and liked what I saw (a neat & tidy desk with a project ongoing!) and joined as a follower. I have your lovely site bookmarked so I can get back again to see what you are creating. Glad you had a nice holiday, got all your 'return home chores' accomplished. It's never great to have to get back to work (I remember that feeling!). But ah, it's necessary for craft money. Mary #142 (just realized I should be leaving my number sequence...haven't been doing that....

  16. Very pretty paper and nice coloring! Have a good rest if the week. Happy WOYWW! Nan 28
