Good morning and happy WOYWW wishes to you, I hope you are having a good day whatever you’re up to. I missed last week and I’m pleased to be back for my weekly crafty fix and blog hopping. This week is proving to be a much better week already and I even got to spend some time yesterday stamping and have just about finished another card, which you can see on my desk… I didn't get the opportunity to try some new stamps I purchased but hopefully will soon… and I’m not putting them away until I do!
What’s WOYWW you ask,,,its the weekly world wide blog party hosted by the wonderful Julia that allows you to share your crafty space...go check it out is fab.I also completed my first ever ATC yesterday for the WOYWW 4th  anniversary in a few weeks time;it’s the first time for me doing anything arty/abstract. I’m quite pleased with the result, its not my ‘usual’ style and was way out my comfort zone and I had very inky fingers( I hate the feeling !) but I  hope the recipient will be happy with it too; no photo though as that would spoil the surprisecheck out Julia’s blog theStamping Ground and link for more details if you want to take part. I have another card to post but will do that separately as waffling now and that never a good thing! Off to check out what other WOYWWer’s have been up too; have a fab day and a great week, HugsAndrea X

  2. Happy WOYWW. So many gorgeous colours and a cute image on your first photo. A big pile of stamps waiting to be tested! I have been addicted to making ATCs for a while now, but haven't got round to making the WOYWW ones yet. Ali x #28

  7. My ATCs are ALMOST ready - I've got the main one done, and three extras that are different, and want to do up to 5 more. We'll see if it works!

    Enjoy the new stamps - it's always fun to play with new stash!

    Happy WOYWW!

  11. That’s a pretty colour combination you’re working with on your desk this week Andrea and I love the sweet image.
    I’ve been working on my ATC’s too this week. It’s only the second time I’ve made them, the first being for the anniversary last year.
    Happy Crafting!

  12. You are always a girl after my own heart with your lovely and neat and bright creative space, Andrea! Your lovely work-in-progress is fantastic!

    I haven't even started my ATC; made only one in my life before for the last WOYWW ATC swap and I didn't get all inky. I know most of them are so amazing and inky and layered, but I've been assured I can make a CAS one, too, and keep with my normal style. Don't know how the recipient will feel about that ...

    Thanks for coming by earlier. Have a wonderful week! I hope it does turn out to be an easy one with lots of craft time for you - including the new stuff! Darnell #37
