WOYWW 399, I am back after a long break!

Hello my dear friends!

I have been away for such a long time! It was due to me being away at home in Slovenia and after I came back I have suffered with a cold that has lasted for ages and took all the life out of me for a few weeks! To be honest I am still not 100% but with this cold weather never ending I don't think I will be for a while!
Still I am back to making things and that is why I am back ready to show you my messy desk and what I have made!
Ohh yes have you noticed the number of WOYWW - next week it will be 400! Unbelievable! 400 Wednesdays ladies have gathered and shown their stuff! Amazing! Julia our Queen has nailed it! No doubt!
Anyway we will be talking about this next week now let me get up to showing you my desk....
 As you can see that pile of a mess are some of my stamps and dies for making Valentines Day cards! Yes that is what I have been doing! I am not organized yet - I just randomly take out stuff that I need and pile it on my desk - I have to get back to be more tidy but for the moment randomness is all I can manage!
 This is the other side of the desk where at the moment my lovely pink glue gun lives - I have finally discovered a good way how to put the tape in! My advise don't look at videos just do it!  You can see a box with my sewing in it a big box of kleenex tissues and that other pink thing is my new phone which I like very much! I changed from Samsung to Sony. I am not a fan of iPhones so this is fine for me!


So what have I made? Here are 3 cards I will show you.....

First up - I stamped the background with various heart stamps in pink  and then put some black die cuts from My favorite things (words) and Carabelle studio (hearts) on top.....

Next one with a bit of gold embossing and die cuts again from My favorite things and sentiment from Lil' inker,,,,

And here is the last one with the same die cut from My favorite things but with an extra butterfly one from Memory box..... sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp...

That is all from me today.....I will be around looking at what you have been making - ha, ha maybe I can get some inspiration from all you arty folk!
Have a lovely week and get ready for week 400 of WOYWW ! Wow how great is that?
Lots of hugs to all of you, 


  1. Oh, I do hope you continue to feel better and are 100% soon!

    Your cards are lovely - I especially like the layered hearts.

  2. Oh...that last card, you have my heart, I absolutely love it!!! Happy Wednesday. Sandy Leigh #45

    Yes, I am across the water but not posting as yet as I have only just got back. Had an 8 hour drive yesterday so it was quite tiring and my legs are so swollen today from all the walking on the carpets at cha. Watch this space, I will be posting some pictures. (Also on Facebook)
    Hugs, Neet 2 xx
