WOYWW, 18th May 2011

Good morning my dear friends!

How are you all today?? I hope you are enjoying such lovely sunny weather as we are! It goes up to 28 deg C in the afternoons so it is really nice - I am enjoying my "outside lounge" ( in fact terrace). On the crafty side of things I am very busy although my blog doesn't show it! By the evening when I should put up a post I am so tired I just fall into bed! It is very good that we have this WOYWW because you feel so much part of a community that you just can't miss out - so all of the work gets shown! 
So what have I been doing???? First I will show you 2 cards I have made - one for my friend's birthday - we celebrated her birthday on Monday! And another card that I made for my collegue at work - his birthday is next Saturday - he is a keen cyclist so I worked that theme.....
Here is my friends card.....

And here is the boy card......

I looked on the internet to find some ephemera that would suit the theme and I think I got it right - I stamped the backround -which you can't see much with one of the dylusions stamps - something new in my collection of stamps.....here is my messy desk where you can just about see it...

what you can also see is a decoupaged letter D which I made yesterday at a make and take demo at an art  shop in Ljubljana called PROMETEJ CENTER !
Here is a photo of the group working and our lovely  teacher.....

I now see that I have not taken a photo of a sketch of a face I have been doing to go on my collage I am doing with Donna - I think I will give up on the idea of drawing something myself - I wish I had inherited the talent of my dad who was really good at drawing but unfortunatly those genes did not get passed on ! As his mathematical genius didn't! Huh!  I have been doing a lot more things - also preparing my PiF and a few other gifts but I can't show them as you all know - at least not till the recipient gets them - so for now this is all I will show you for today! 
Later on I will post a recipe for paprikash....so if you are interested in cooking a hungarian national food come back later....
Oh one more thing.....Friday I travel to England and will be staying there for about 10 days - I am going to various events - Sunday I am in Faversham - Kent I will be there at the classic car show with my MG Club from Maidstone - if any of you will be there I would love to meet you! Also I will be in London Monday - going to the Eric Clapton Concert ( my birthday surprise - YIPEEEEE!!!) From next Friday till Monday we are going on an MG trip to Hailing Island ( I hope I spelt it right) but we will probably be cruising around - I will be blogging as much as I can so you will be up to date with all the goings on!
Have a lovely snoop, enjoy your day and be sure that I will have a look at what you are doing!
Lots and lots of hugs,


  1. Great cards - and have a wonderful trip - it sounds busy but exciting!! Look forward to hearing all about it later.

  2. Sounds like it will be a fantastic trip.( I'm a Clapton fan so envy you soooo much) Hope you have fun. I really think you should move to England... it would be easier and we'd all get to see you! Love your cards..

  5. Looking forward to your travel entries - Clapton - fab! Lucky you!
    Love your cards, especially the man one - that is fantastically wonderful! #10

  6. oh wish I was off work - I'd come say hello, lovely to meet you on skype, don't give up if you want to draw - it really is a learned skill of technique and practice, it's just most people notice once you get good and do not know about all the years of practice and mistakes...) ps Artists rarely show off their mistakes :-)

  14. The cards are wonderful - really great. We aren't enjoying that sort of weather,sadly - I bet your terrace is a tranquil rest place after a long day now. I will keep checking in - Hayling Island isn't so far from me that I couldn't get to you if it was possible with cars, commitments etc!!

  19. Zelo mi je všeč voščilnica za dekle, čudovita rožica jo krasi.
    Srečnica, ponovno potuješ. Lepo se imej.

  20. Your cards are just lovely and I'm very envious of your 28 degrees and outdoor living!!
