WOYWW 5 YEARS!!!!!! YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Hello my lovely bloggy friends!

Today we are celebrating 5 years of friendship and sharing our desks with each other, learning new techniques, hearing about new products or just nosing - Whats On Your Work desk Weddnesday!
Thank you to our leader and organizer JULIA to make it all happen 5 years ago but also to all the other lovely crafters who participate every week and show us what they have been up to every week! So congratulations to everybody! We have all done well and lets carry on for yet another year!
I have missed the WOYWW special anniversary crop but I did give my ATCs to Julia (Jan) and I hope they have been given to all the girls at the crop!
Some have sent them to me at my DBFs address (thank you Annie - Wipso and Jo - Twiglet) I will be sending your ATCs today! 
I am still in England but am leaving tomorrow so if anybody wants my ATC it will be coming from Slovenia! 
Ok then lets get up to regular business! First up my desk - well it is not my desk really it is the table in my DBFs lounge - I have made a terrible mess and my DBF said " gosh you are a messy person" - he, he well he will have to put up with that! 


I have been making cards to go with the ATCs I will be sending off! The cards are not super quality as I only have limited resources here to make them! 


And here are the ATCs I have been given and sent by LL Jan, Wipso and Twiglet... LL Jan threw in a little pin cushion - isn't it lovely?



I have been given an ATC bag - Jo from Jozart gave me this one - look at this amazing bag!


So that is my WOYWW 5 anniversary post! I will be putting an asterix beside my name!
Have a lovely week and enjoy the anniversary WOYWW!

Lots of love and hugs to all of you

Happy crafting!!!

WOYWW, Stash, birthday presents and travels!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

How are you all? In England everybody had a nice week with lovely sunny weather - including me! Now it seems there is going to be a change - just right as me and my DBF are traveling to Ilfracombe with our MG club! Huh! Anyway let me tell you what I have been up to for the last 2 weeks!
As you all know after coming to England I went straight to Liverpool spending a few days with Jo from Jozart - she was kind to write all about our stay there  and you can read all about here and here. I had a lovely, lovely time and thank you so much Jo and Dave  it was a wonderful birthday for me!!! 
I got some lovely presents which I will show in a minute but first I want to show my "desk", ha, ha honestly today I had a desk on the floor - competition for Helen!!!
I got a load of crafty stuff from Jo and as I don't have a crafty room here in England yet I decided to pack all my stash in bins but I wanted to sort everything so I will know what I have! So it went from the mess bellow....




to everything sorted.....


So that was my "desk work" today!
Next up my lovely birthday presents! Jo made a lovely needle case for me....





She also made me an amazing bag with Tim Holtz material - absolutely love it! Thank you Jo!

 We all met up with Donna from Doings of Doone and she made me a lovely quilt - so artsy!! I keep looking at all the amazing detail! Thank you so much Donna!


So those were my lovely crafty presents! I was given some money (DBF) so I bought some new stash and a bit of clothing! In Liverpool Jo took me to this amazing shop were they sell stuff for "celebrating curves" - very nice!
Oh yes we went to the Faversham classic car show.....here is a photo from that....


And yes I would love to own this one! What a lovely car!!!!


As it is the Chelsea flower show this week it is only appropriate to show some flowers....I am showing peonies from our garden....

And as last! I won't be at the crop but I am meeting up with Julia and LLJan tomorrow and will give them the ATCs for all the girls at the crop! If anyone wants my ATCs but is not attending the crop please let me know and I will send them to you next week! Just leave me a comment! Of course the one that will be my "sparing" partner will also get my ATC. 
So there that is me for now - I better get to bed now as I have been doing so much work today I really need a rest!
Lots of hugs and love to all!

WOYWW 257, ATCs done and a 2 cards!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

I am here on WOYWW again, missing out last week - still I am trying and getting better! This week is my last post from Slovenia, I will be in England for 3 weeks so my posts will be from there! I am flying over tomorrow with my DBF and we are driving from the airport towards Liverpool where we will meet up with my dear friend Jo from Jozart in Liverpool the next day! Also on the Saturday meeting up with Donna from Doings of Doone! Ah what joy! Sooo looking forward to this!As you can see I will be packing tonight and probably won't be able to get back to any of you but I know that next week when I am at my "home" in Kent I will be able to get back to all you kind people who comment on my blog!
So what is on my desk - well I don't have a picture of my really messy desk because I forgot to take it this morning but I do have photos of things I have been making on that desk! 
First order of business ATCs....I will be sending some off to people I know will not come to the crop! I will be giving some personally to people I will be meeting and hopefully I will be able to give some to Julia and Lunch Lady Jan ( who I will try to meet in Wiltshire if they will have time - they don't know about it yet but we will see) who will give them away at the crop which I will unfortunately not be able to attend this year! So sad as I really love to go to this crop! Still in the very near future I will be spending more time in England so going to crops and card marathons and all sorts will be much easier! More on what is happening in another post!
Here are photos of my atcs....this year my theme is flower die cuts on stamped and self made background!
I couldn't do all of them one by one, so there are five of them on each photo - I am not sure if I have enough - 25 at the moment but I might have to make more....












Here are a few  close ups....




Ok then next up are 2 cards I have made - one is a birthday card for my friend who's birthday is one day after mine and I won't see her because I am away!





and as last my cousins daughter has her Confirmation on Saturday and here is the card I made for the occasion....




So that is all my dear friends from Cardarian's happy place! See you all soon!
Lots of hugs to all of you,
CARDARIAN
