Good morning to all of you WOYWW snoopers out there in blog land.
Thank you to all of you who visited last week, I really enjoyed visiting you back from your comments and as I was on holiday last week, I actually got around some more too - really enjoyed the blog hopping.
I hope you are not squeamish as this post you may not like one of the images. Well it's not that bad (honest)
I start today's post by saying hello to my two new followers Carolynne and Heidi, hi ladies :) I hope you like little critters!!
I also would like to thank the ladies at Just Inspirational Challenge for choosing me as a winner of Challenge 6 for my son and his fiance's engagement card. Cannot wait to play with my winning gift.
So onto the post, for those of you who have joined the new craze of snooping around the crafting sites in blog land. We can thank our Julia for this, what a brilliant idea it is. If you want to join in and have a snoop pop over to The Stamping Ground for this weeks WOYWW. This is some mess I made creating the Beary Nice Anniversary card on the earlier post. There you can see those lovely GCD Studio Paris Nights paper stack and the trusty finger lift tap and the pliers, used to trim the flower heads of their stems. Not very interesting really.
This is a close up of the top of my cupboard in the Beach Hut, the one with no doors on it. I collect all old cartons, and jars etc for future altered pieces. I really enjoyed eating the Cadbury chocolate Easter egg that came in that delish purple carton.
mmmmmmmm now this is a tub of spilt pegs. I use the pegs to hold papers together when creating. However you are now wondering why they are spilt on the work top. Well............................
This is the pesky little critter that caused it. We appear to have a wasp nest under the eaves and although I cannot find a hole anywhere in my Beach Hut they keep getting in. So whilst trying to swat it, I knocked the peg tub off it's perch and the pegs went all over. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I know they will evacuate the nest soon and will be gone and then I will fill in their access/egress hole :)
Now last week I was asked if there was an official list for the messiest crafter.
so for those of you who graded yourselves (1 being tidy - 10 being utter mess)
1/10 - no current takers
2/10 - no current takers
3/10 myself (all though last week one said I should be a 2/10 and another 4/10 so believe that leaves me at a 3/10
4/10 - no current takers
5/10 - no current takers
6/10 Tina B
7/10 - no current takers
8/10 - no current takers
9/10 - no current takers
10/10 Kate (I think Kate's blog name is perfect for WOYWW)
If you would like to rate yourself please leave the comment of where you feel you fit and I will add you for next week, all in the name of fun of course, can't wait for your reactions and thanks for the suggestion (you know who you are and hope this is what you meant)
Julia I hope you don't mind this and if you would prefer to add this to your post please let me know and I will give this scale to you the originator of the fabulous WOYWW.
Today I am also posting a card I made Monday evening and finished Tuesday morning.
The papers are GCD Studios, called Joyful Peace. It is a 12 x 12 48 page double sided paper stack, with a lovely vintage feel and again a lovely linen feel and look. I got these from Denise at Tilly's again when I went shopping the other day. The image is one of my favorites Edwin and Tilda skating from the Magnolia range (don't think I needed to tell you that)
I followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers and really enjoyed using this
here is a close up the image partially coloured by copics the preferred media, paper pieced and decoupaged - this was a challenge and a half.
There are two layers on the hat but one everywhere else.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges
Creative Card Crew - Sparkle and Shine, I have used one of my newer holly stamps and a glue stamp pad to add the glue areas for the fab green glitter to stick too, I also used the burgundy stickles to add the berries to the white areas of the stamp which are meant to be the holly berries. Felt that this picked up the foil red berries on the base paper.
Cards for Men - Decoupage I think that this could be a male side of the family card.
Magnolia Down Under - Edwin and Tilda together (I could not resist entering this one)
Christmas Stampin All Year Long - Designer Papers how could I resist entering this challenge when my teamie Marianne is a Guest Designer this challenge
think that this is it for today
other than to say as I am back at work, so Mr Blogger will very kindly post this for me, I will link the challenges as and when I get time via mobile blogging and if I do not get time, when I get home.
Once again I thank you for taking the time to visit me and ask that you do please leave me a comment so I know you have been and can return the visit. Look forward to visiting you all
Happy WOYWW day to you all
