WOYWW, 2 cards and happy mail!

My dear friends!

How are all of you doing? Having a nice summer??? Well ....we aren't! We have rain almost every day and the temperatures are more autumn-ish then summer-ish! Does that inspire me to sit at my crafty desk??? NO! I do odd cards but I must admit I am not doing much! It is just that once you come back from a full day of work and then cook dinner you are not very inspired! I don't know maybe you ladies are!? Anyway not to be moaning all the time lets get up to show time....
First up my messy desk....

The photo on top shows a very handy thing called Quickstik - soooo handy for sticking sequins and other embellishments on cards! I really recommend that one! Here in Slovenia I bought it from Mavelu!
The second photo shows the mess on my right. There is just stuff piling up - some things I don't even use but somewhere in the back there there are 2 boxes of dabbers - really practical for using with distress inks and I think a box of about 20 was just 2 Euros!
And the third photo shows the mess on my left! Lots of pens, pencils markers, gel pens, and other rubbish! Huh!
Ok next up are my 2 cards...one was made with some designer paper which I don't use but recently I saw it and I made a card with it....I also die cut a strip with little dots and a word ( Hvala - means thank you) and added pearls and ribbon.....Dies are both from Najlepši par!

Here is the next one I made for a friend at work for her birthday!
On this one I did a lot of stamping, multi-inking then die cut the flowers, stacked them added pearls and sequins..I also die cut  the corner.....quite like the result! The dies for the corner and sentiment are from Najlepši par, the flowers are from Wplus9!

I made a really nice collage card for my daughters boyfriend but I haven't given it to him yet so I can't show it - you will see that next week!
Now long overdue are a few things that came in the mail - ATCs from the WOYWW crop that came to my DBFs place (sent by Julia - thank you!) and because he was with me here in Slovenia I didn't get them till last week! Thank you ladies they are lovely and will be put into my ATC album!

Also not to be forgotten! A while ago I got a big surprise letter with a wonderful card and ATC from Australia from Eliza!! Thank you so much Eliza!

And last but not least - recently I got another surprise letter from England from Neet, who sent me a lovely card and ATC! Thank you Neet I was so happy to recieve it!

So there that is all from me folks today!
Have a lovely week - hook up to the Stamping ground with our queen Julia and enjoy life and crafting!
Lots of hugs to all,


  1. We've got sun today Cardarain, i'll try sending some your way. A lovely card for your work mate. Happy woyww Jill #16

  2. Kako si bila pridna, vedno, ko kaj objaviš ni v ednini.
    Prijeten preostanek avgusta ti želim in hvala za tvoje obiske in komentarje na mojem blogu, ko ti to uspe
    lp Tamara

  3. We seem to have a delayed summer here! It is hot today but was cooler for the last few weeks. I haven't crafted much lately as I have been trying to cram all the activities in before it gets cold. Love your cards, and I am a big fan of Distress ink and daubers too! Enjoy the week! Winnie #35

  4. Yoohoo *waves madly* it's so good to see you again! Hope you are keeping well and happy (and DBF too!) Are your UK plans still ongoing? Let me know how your'e getting on :-)
    Love your cards with the pearly bling on - but then, as you well know, I'm the Queen of Bling! They're so pretty. But it must be hard to summon up enthusiasm to craft after a long day's work so well done you!
    Hugs, LLJ 20 xx

  5. I feel right at home at this desk. And it looks like you're being busy too!
    Our summer has been very mild brain every day and that's normal here.

  6. Love the colour in all your pics, no matter what you show there's always colour. Fabulous makes too. Take care. Zo xx 41

  7. Hi Dolores
    sorry to hear you are feeling a bit uninspired ... even though your cards are very pretty.... I know what it is like when your mojo is low it is hard to get it back up.
    lets hope the rain stops soon
    thanks for sharing

  8. Here in Sunny Lincoln UK we have quite good weather most of the time, this is the east of the coutry but I used to live in the West near Manchester and it was always raining there. We are only a small Island but we have lots of different weather.
    Love your cards, hope you have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 34

  9. Good to see you again, and you say you've not been doing much, but the cards are lovely! Glad your atc's caught up with you!! Thanks for stopping by. Helen 4

  10. well done Delores on the atcs etc .. and can so understand why you are not crafty feeling after working all day!! my nephew is in Slovenia and says it is really beautiful, they are riding around with a Jumpy vehicle and camping.
    My Delores rose has a bud on it, they are just beginning to flower again.. its one of my most prolific roses. love Shaz in Oz.x #10 thanks for popping over.

  11. Zelo pridna si bila, ni kaj. Tudi meni zandje čase ne gre delo preveč od rok - ni prave inspiracije, po kuhanju kosila pa tudi volje ne :)

  12. Love the cards, the lettering is fabulous.
    It's been raining here and the central heating has been on for an hour or so two days now. I have even worn socks today!!!
    Not long now to the 1st September.
