WOYWW 300!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

Hello lovely WOYWWers!

300 WOYWW! What a lovely celebration! How many blog hops can boast with that sort of anniversary???? I think there isn't a single one in the world! How lovely and many thanks to our Queen Julia who organizes it week after week! What would we do without our lovely Queen at Stamping Ground?????
Happy birthday to all you WOYWWers!
 I have been missing out lately due to my big changes in life but I thought to myself as busy as I may be I am not going to miss this one. So here I am back with a bit of the usual stuff we show week after week - a desk - messy as usual and a few bits I have managed to make in between the big makeover of my DBFs house!
Well it isn't that big but whatever you do, in a house that hasn't had a change (and a woman's touch) for over 25 years, seems to be big! And there is just so much sorting out I hope once this is all done I never have to sort out anything for the rest of my life! Huh! Still the first leg of the kitchen makeover is done and we have a new wash machine and dishwasher! Yipeeee!
Ok back to business now lets start with my desk - actually dinning table turned into a crafting desk....

What you can see is a pack of new papers and an Avery Elle Easter stamp,  my art journal I have been playing with lately, my little drawers that are full of little crafty trinkets, oh dear my Avon foundation (don't know what that is doing there) and  my glasses hidden in my glass case! Have a look around there is more to see even a little bag of pecans! Really????
And now a few things I have made lately....
Here is a card made with my new Paperartsy stamp set....The sentiment is from a Unity stamp set - it has been sent away so I hope the recipient has it already!

Next up is a card I made for my DBFs grandaughters birthday....the bluebells are a Clearly Besotted stamp and the little girl is a Mama Elephant stamp....

And here is a card that is actually a sort of copy of one Julia Ebersole has made with some new dies she designed,  but I didn't have any of those so I used ones I had and I think my versions looks quite ok!

And here is one I made for my daughter - she had her diploma exam a few days ago and I thought this one would let her know how proud I am of my lovely daughter....

So there - this is my 300 WOYWW anniversary post.
Enjoy this week and keep crafting and WOYWWing! It is great isn't it?????
Lots of hugs and love to all
