WOYWW, More confirmation cards, another lovely ATC and some new stuff!

Hello lovely friends!

Back for another WOYWW and this time it is WITH our Queen Julia! Boy was that a shock when there was no where to link to and the news that our lovely leader is stuck in a foreign hospital! Ah we were lost!
But she is back now hopefully improving and yes already talking about a Christmas card marathon???? Really!!??? So, so happy to have our lovely queen Julia back you were really missed!!!!!! Lots of hugs to you and get well wishes!
My back is still the same no improvement, but I am struggling and trying to live a fairly normal life - yesterday I actually went on a trip with our faculty to Austria....but I will talk about that in a minute - first I should show you what I have been making and my desk!
I have been making confirmation cards! I made a really nice one which I didn't take a picture of - dahhh!!!
And here are the other 2.....again using my watercolor background techniques....

Then I made another one with the same color combo, blue, white and silver....

and here is my desk with a lovely ATC I just recieved from Zoe from Craftygasheadzo.....thank you so much for sending that lovely ATC - it was so nice to recieve a surprise letter!!!

and also on my desk is something new....stamps and dies from Clearly Besotted Stamps!

So that is the crafty bit of my post today and here is just an interesting thing from my trip to Austria yesterday - we went to see this thing called Pyramidenkogel - the highest wooden contruction in the world....

Here is what you see from the top...

and this is proof I have been up there....it was a bit scary I admit......

Ok that is it for today....oh no not yet!
A very lovely friend of mine Jo is celebrating her birthday today and I would like to wish her all the best! Have a lovely day and eat cake! :-) Lots of hugs are being sent to you from Slovenia!
And of course hugs to all of you bloggy friends out there from

  4. Beautiful cards! Wow that is up there, you're braver than me that's for sure. Hope the back improves (I can relate). Warm Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #12

  5. Hi Dolores.... a week of ups and downs eh?

  8. What a fun post, Dolores! I applaud you for making it to the top of that incredible structure, especially with your poorly back! The view is awe-mazing!! Your confirmation cards are terrific! Well done!! I'll head over to Jo's to give her my best wishes. Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week! Hugs, Darnell #14

  9. Beautiful cards! And so brave of you to go to the top of that structure! Not sure I could do it! Lindart #72

  10. Hi Dolores- you are very brave climbing to the top of that structure! Not sure I would have been able to steel myself to do it. Lovely confirmation cards, gorgeous colours. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #30xx

  11. Lovely card! I do like that blue bird!
    Hope your back improves. Back pain is so debilitating.
    But have a good week anyway,

  12. Hi Delores,

    Thank you so much for my lovely card and ATC that arrived during the week, I just got home last night to a pile of happy mail and it was a pleasant surprise. I am also loving those cards you have made, that wooden structure looks unusual, how did you get to the top?

    Belated WOYWW greetings sorry I am joining so late.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 85
