WOYWW, post op and housekeeping!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

I have been out of action, as some of you know, my DBF had an operation and is now recovering and I have to care for him! He has been quite good, he is walking and feeling ok so I am happy that has gone well. 
Of course I had to put crafty stuff on hold but as he is recovering I am back in action. I have made a card and a few more ATCs -I know I am late with all this but believe me today was the first day I went out! 
So a bit of housekeeping as our Queen Julia says! Shaz, Neet and Diane you will get my ATCs asap. Diane please send me your address! If anybody else would like to have one of my ATCs I still have some so let me know but please send your address - I can't send them if I don't know where!! Also the lady I was suppose to send the ATC Annie from Annies pantry - please send me your address so I can send off the ATC.
So thats the housekeeping. 
Now comes the thanks to Annie and Twiglet and Neet who have sent me their lovely ATCs via Royal Mail. They are now in my lovely 6th WOYWW anniversary collection! 
And finally my desk....here are a few shots...

 I didn't do much crafting but I could still do a bit of online shopping! :-) As you can see above I bought the Tim Holtz Flower Garden and the Stampendous Fran's Butterflies...as you can see below I have already used them - I clear embossed the stamping and I will watercolor it....
 Also here is a look at the leftovers of my projects, I have used a lot of distress spray stains and I just love the vibrant colors of my background that will be used in something you will see next week! There are also some lovely die cuts from Ellen Hutson's spring die cut collection.

 So there that is me for this week....not much but there will be more next week! I will try to get round the desks as I am now able to nip to my laptop every now and then.
Lots of hugs to all of you,


  1. Glad Alan is recovering, and you have been able to do some shopping while you wait to be able to get inky again!! Happy WOYWW Helen 3

  2. I really hope that knee is a better colour than the last time I saw it and he's making a good recovery now. Enjoy what time you have for crafting this week Dolores.
