Good morning my dear friends!

I have been so busy this week! It was a mad house - my DBF is staying here, my daughter and her boyfriend have been coming round and doing odd jobs for me - of course I provide a meal and then lets not forget I still work full time! So huh a bit worn out here! My crafty mojo is on holiday at the moment so not much has been done! I have been dabbling with the ATCs as I would like to send out a few to friends and people who don't give up on me and come and comment on my blog even though I don't have time to comment on their blog! Anyway I will show you a photo of my desk and there will be a post after this one where you will find a few photos from my trip which I promised last week and never got round to it! I am going on another trip this week - ha, ha this time to England as my DBF belongs to an MG club and we are off for our annual MG tour! We will be going to East Anglia - Corton to be more specific! I know some of you think I sound like a jetsetter whizzing from one end to another but the truth is my DBF lives in England so that kind of relationship envolves a lot of travelling! But  then comes months where I am stuck indoors and nothing happens at all! That will happen after I have my knee operation!
Anyway to get to the point here is a photo of my desk.....

It was very dull this morning so I took a picture with the light on - as you can see I have an ATC in the making and my new TH distress inks on my desk! I love the new colors especially the Peacock feathers! I stamped the bird on my ATC with Shaded lilac, I am still thinking how to finish the it off! After studying the ATCs I have decided to go 3 ways with them - vintage, quirky and modern! What that means you will see next week! 
Have a lovely week I will be reporting from England when I can!
Lots of hugs to all of you
PS. Look out for the next post about my Monte Carlo trip!It is here !

  2. Wow, you do sound like an International Jet setter!!! Your Monaco trip looked amazing but you're right, I wouldn't want to live there either :) Your pics were fantastic, especially of the flowers!
    How fab that you're coming to England - we'll have to arrange a meetup at some point in the future :) Thanks for your kind words and support, it really means a lot to me...
    Hugs, LLJ #57 xx

  4. Love old cars. I used to like the field of MG's that turned up at some of the classic car rallies we took our Austin to. Have fun!

  5. OH the MG trip sounds so fun..I love cars too and the traveling is great, but so nice to come home. Love the colors on your card. Fresh like a key lime pie. Happy WOYWW enjoy your events and thanks for stopping by...Can't wait for the ATC swap

  6. That card looks very lonely on your clear desk! It's a wonder you've found time to craft at all as life seems to be a whirlwind for you.
    Speak soon, I hope,
    Love joZarty x

  7. Have fun in east Anglia - look after the knee ,

    almost July.....Jo and I will fuss and nag and be a pain about telling you how to convalesce! I am getting so excited, and Jo and I plan to come with suitcases full of craft stuff.

    in the meantime, of course I will be sending you one of my extra ATC's, ..


  8. Love the ATC - and have a good trip! Hope to read all about it soon... Helen, 17

  10. A friend of mine has an old MG and she loves it. Although her son says it's his car now and that she's too old to drive it! hee hee

    Your ATC looks sweet from this angle.

    Happy WOYWW

  11. Have a fun trip, love the new Tim colors, I've got to get some of those. Barb #121

  12. Looks like you're having fun with those inks, me too, am using them on my ATC's too. Take care & enjoy WOYWW, hoping your Thursday is a lovely one! Zo xx 80

  13. Thanks for all the photos of the trip above. Advantage of being late replying to blog posts. Looks like you have made a lovely ATC with those new Spring colours - they are my favourites - so nice and bright - I love citrus.
    Happy WOYWW (week) - Hugs, Neet #25 xx

  14. Peacock feathers?? What a great name for an ink!! Love your pretty ATC too!

  15. Love the look of that ATC.. great colours.. have a great trip.. Hugs May x x x#30

  16. Have a fun time in England - we had an MGB once! x Jo

  17. Oh that desk is a bit too clean and tidy, you need to mess it up just a little. If your mojo is gone, then try doing some background without fuss and see where that goes. It always works for me.
