  Hi, and a very happy Wednesday to you, it's  been quite some time since I've posted although I have still been around and occasionally commenting on my favourite sites. Life, as usual, gets in the way and I can't keep everything on the go...I won't entertain bore you with any details. I'm hoping this time to get into a better routine and blog more often, as I do enjoy it. I'm working today so won't be back till later to visit and it may take me a few days to get around everyone.Since going part time I usually work midweek, although this varies week to week 
A6 card completed. sorry about my craft knife in
photo -very poor editing! 

6x6 card all done just needs glueing into place 

   I have begun making my Christmas cards, at last, usually, it's around July- August time! I have made two so far, a good start. I am very fortunate to have been bought a Brother ScanNCut from hubby as a very early birthday present, I've now had a couple of opportunities to use it and even managed to upload and rescale a shaped card file from internet which I posted on facebook/Instagram on's going to be an exciting and long learning curve. My daughter gave me her old phone and I'm just beginning to get to grips with using App's it's only taken me a year !!. 

desk yesterday afternoon

Back to why I am here, it's Wednesday of course and as ever the wonderful Julia is hosting the ever so popular and friendly Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday blog hop, which for me is ace as it's my way of getting in touch with people and in motivating me to blog. I see the WOYWW crop has just taken place and having had a snoop around blog land LLJ has posted loads of pics, it looks like it was a great day and fun for all who attended.... one day I will get there. 

above is my desk yesterday afternoon and the two Christmas cards I've made. it was a lovely sunny day yesterday and great for crafting. I coloured the stamped images on Sunday and got all my bits and pieces together, for reasons unknown I'm liking tartan at the minute and had several papers to choose from, both of those used where magazine freebies. My desk is not too untidy  The pile of the card to the left is a result of my die cutting and using the ScanNCut... it's the "to do "pile (hopefully I will sort it out tonight) sorry I've gone on a bit....I hope you've had a good week so far and I'm looking forward to catching up and being back. Best wishes and big crafty hugs  Andrea  xx

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
