Last week I wasn't up to participating in WOYWW and missed the fun so I'm back this week to join in the massive weekly snoop around the world's crafty spaces courtesy of the estimable Julia Dunnit, our amazing keeper of the desks, over at the Stamping Ground. Don't know what this is all about - where have you been?!?! To join in click on the WOYWW icon on the left sidebar there - you'll enjoy the experience :)
This photo was taken late Tuesday evening but I can assure you it will look exactly the same in the morning. In the forefront, what you see is the beginnings of a Halloween tag! Now, I don't do Halloween but the EM suggested that I make an exception this year and create a card for our wee granddaughter because she does do it. She gets into costume and enjoys the whole witches, ghosties, spiders and scare-yourself-rigid thing. Instead of a card, I've opted to make her a tag to hang in her room - she'll love it :) I haven't really got a plan, I'm just playing around with a couple ideas and I've pulled out some supplies that I think might be useful - suitably spooky paper, coordinating cardstock, ribbons and trims, black ink pad, of course, a couple of punches, a roll of spider web-like stuff, and the Hougie (my trusty score board) - there's the beginning of a rosette lying on top. That bit of grey card at the front is my go-to tag template - I made it a couple of years ago and it's still going strong.
At the back, among all the usual bits of crafty stuff, you can see a few tubes of rub-n-buff in a dish, a bottle of really good adhesive, a box of baby wipes, oh, and my treasured WOYWW badge :)) There's also a couple of cards I've just completed - they are propped up on top of two packs of card bases from Craftwork Cards and Docrafts Papermania papers and flowers, from the Chelsea Green Capsule Collection, used in the making, are still on top of the baby wipe box waiting to be put away. Here's a couple of close-ups:
Finally, just in front of the chook cupboard is a card the postie delivered only this morning :)
It's a swap card from Julia S-W at Julia's Stuff - isn't it fabulous!
I love everything about it - the inked and embossed background is beautiful and the glossy inked flowers are gorgeous and who wouldn't love the cute rabbit and the goose. Another wonderful piece that will go up on my display shelf and be treasured. Julia's post on how she created this card is here.
Mrs D will probably not be one bit surprised that I've nattered on as usual ... hope she will forgive me, yet again :)
Hoping to get around to visiting a goodly number of you today, though I cannot promise to visit you all - wish I could but there are so many of you and so little time :) However, I do promise to do my best and if you leave a comment I will definitely return the visit and leave you a comment too as long as Mr Blogger isn't playing up ... he has already signed me out, with absolutely no by your leave, while I've been writing up this post!
In the meantime, I wish you all a wonderful week and a happy WOYWW.
