I am in the middle of trying to complete my November swaps so my CardWorkShop cards are on my desk ready to complete.
The Theme is Weddings and my cards will be: -
The ribbons and nets are for the dress, so far so good but I have to leave them now till I come back ..... have I mentioned Paris? yeah!
After I have made the cards I shall paint some more ATCs so I have the sheet of pictures ready for my paintings - top right hand corner of the photo.
There you have it!
Now why am I sharing? Cos there is a kind lady who just loves
What a great idea!
So good there are others who are starting the same thing but under a different name of course!
Have to laugh .... we got there first!!
And like all good ideas, and I stress the good, they have to be copied.
Thanks Julia for WOYWW.

1 to 1
I love this design. I printed it out, rounded the corners and backed it onto a dark brown card.
Colour My World - Gold card with Orange embellishments plus one other colour.
This is made with the papers and card from my latest purchase from Craftwork Cards. I applied the background paper and then added a strip along the left side. From a third paper I diecut a label, ran an orange inkpad round the edges and attached it to the background. The image on this paper just fits the description of the swap. Oh, I also grunged round the edge of the card so it looked like a bit of dirt!!
This was a first for me. The use of wire. I found the kit amongst my stash and managed to thread some beads into a pattern and attached them with black brads, twisting the wires so that they looked like loops.
I used a diecut to add the colour and sentiment - smart!!!
I received this card back - love the way the beads drape across the card! That is one superb bow.
Thank you Pat McC.

...... so here is my 'craft room' today ......
|The Fig Tree is about 3 years old ....|
..... and here is some more of my 'stash' ......
Do not worry my friends .... I am well wrapped up and hope to have these 'potties' secure in the warm greenhouse and back room of my house before the temperature drops again tonight!
Then I will be visiting you as I sit in front of the fire ..... warming up!!!
Tomorrow I will be back outside again - rain permitting - this time at my Training Garden getting that one ready for the winter ...... sometimes cardmaking has to stay in the house .....
Until later .... have a good week, thank you Julia for hosting - who's Julia?!?!
