WOYWW #367

Linking up with fellow deskers with our honoured Temp Leader Lunch Lady Jan  who provides a link for us to a World Wide Group, although at the moment she has more important business to attend to - Our prayers are with you and yours at this sad time.  You're next to Julia ......

Good morning fellow Deskers.
We have rain again .....everything has been washed and well watered .... the chickens look bedraggled but it doesn't seem to be bothering them.....Little Soldier is asleep .... PJ is waiting to go on a run with the Steam Engine 6021 ...... I am linking up with fellow Deskers .... all's right with the world!!!!  
Round here it is anyways .....
My desk has new on it .... I have made a 'floral' card, a pop up box from a kit given free with a magazine.  All the pieces were diecut so it was easy to put together although quite an intricate project.
Also on my desk is the start of an experiment ......
Creative Stamping is one magazine for which I have a subscription - a Christmas present from DDC.  I love the stamps and all the ideas but then they are filed away ..... and promptly forgotten!!!  Mainly because I don't do a lot of stamping, I feel that I lack the imagination needed to use them properly - there's a good negative thought!! - but this month one of my swaps is 'Stamping' so I have signed up for it..... good practise .....
I am going to attempt the lower of the two cards and, as I don't have a mask, I am using a Fiskars Template.  The 'Mackintosh' stamps were the freebie so I am looking forward to creating ...... 

Off now to try to visit a few deskers before sleeping babies wake up!  Thank you to all my visitors last week, I'm afraid I only managed to visit a few desks ..... hope to do better this week.
Have a good week.


  1. Hi Christine, I too find I tend to file and forget stamps, hence my catalogue I've been working on! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #5 xxx

  2. I'm the same way with the stamps sometimes too. I am going to try to make sure I use them more. Love the box card. I think I have the magazine with the same freebie but haven't put it to use yet.

    Happy WoYWW

  3. I have to chuckle to read the "file and forget" comments....I put mine down to ARML.....Age Related Memory Loss.
    Great box card!
    Happy WOYWW

  4. I loved it when I got to the "bedraggled looking chickens". Can just imagine them cartoon-like. If only I had the ability to draw what I think of. I am longing for some heat to come again in my northern corner.
    Have a great week,
    Hugs, Neet 7 xx

  5. File and forget - that's my crafting method! Have a great day!

  8. Loving the pop up box...looked at several for the Anniversary, but not enough time. I need to learn to work ahead...Have a lovely weekend.


I make my cards for sheer pleasure so thank you for taking the time to comment.
