A very good morning to you and a happy WOYWW its great to be back after being missing in action for what feels like forever. I have a rare weekday off and as I've been early starts and late finishes at work for weeks I couldnt miss the oppurtunity to take part in WOYWW; The fabulous weekly blog hop of crafty workdesks and spaces. Go visit the wonderful  host Julia at The Stamping Ground ... you won't be dissapointed.I have been working on a thankyou card the last few days on and off whenever I get some time. I have kept it quite simple using a panel from the Heartfelt Creations Arriana Blooms paper pack as the background layers are all completed and the work is done for you.I stamped and coloured one of the smaller pretty flowers stamps and I'm nearly there.

flower production in action 

lots of pink 

I just have to finish making some flowers(I think I have too many!) and put it all together...I can't resist a bit of glitter and sparkle ...its a very pink and girly creation and is a Thank You card for one of hubbys colleagues. I havent been up to much other than work of late and have missed visiting my favourite blogs hopefully work is finally settling down and I can get back to some sort of normality. Next weekend I finish work and go on holiday for a week....I cant wait although its a mixed blessing as my daughter moves away the same weekend we leave for our holiday and won't be here when I get back which will be very strange indeed...bad planning!. I hope you are having a good week whatever youve been up too.Thanks for visiting... it's good to be back and I will hopefully get around to visiting everyone today.

A very happy WOYWW to everyone, it’s Wednesday again that day when we get to nosey look at everyone’s creative crafty workdesks and spaces around the globe. Hop over to the Stamping Ground, Julia the host will make you most welcome and there’s some fab sites you will not want to miss visiting. 
I have been busy with work and haven’t been around much the last few weeks, sorry that I also haven’t been visiting my regular favourite blogs recently either...I will be back to normal soon (I hope) I am still managing to make the odd car here and there and have made a few special birthday cards which I will post soon and the simple baby card below. 
latest card 
My desk isn’t too exciting this week as you can see in the pics taken yesterday before work there’s some magazine freebies to put away and a pile of scrap papers to sort. I had planned to do more scrapbooking this far it hasnt gone to plan and theres a pile of photos that I plan to start far I have finshed one scrap page in two years!... so progress is slow to say the least! I’ve also been doing some colouring with the cute Tatty Twinkle stamps,I don’t have any particular card in mind but I do enjoy colouring them and its something I can dip in and out of when I don't have much time. I have just finished and sent a baby card for one of my hubbys work colleagues, I kept the designs simple and decided to send the cute stork one above so I now I also have a spare card for the next baby girl that arrives(hiding in pile of scraps on desk), as usual I couldn’t resist using a button or two!

 waiting for action !

bits 'n' bobs too sort  and put away

I’m off too work soon and will be visiting when I get back later today, as usual at the minute it may take me a few days to come visit everyone but I will. I hope you have a good week ahead and are having lots of crafty fun.I will return the visit very soon and appreciate you popping in...crafty hugs Andrea X
