WOYWW 80

WOW I've just looked back over my previous posts and my last WOYWW was no 72, 8 weeks ago, time has flown but I thought I must pop in to say hi to everyone and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.

So here is my desk today

It's as I left it last night, a ten year old card for my niece, just two more pre xmas birthday cards to make and three xmas cards and I will be done and have some time to take myself down some other routes.  I have been following Tims 12 Tags of Christmas, but havent actually made anything so might try out some of his creative tips, like his stamp making out of his dies, brilliant, I knew id kept the funky foam for a reason.  It's also a great marketing tool as there is so many more of his thing I now need, LOL.

Little boast coming up...... but if I cant boast to you my fellow crafters, then who can I, my work colleagues try to look interested, LOL

For those that dont know I was lucky enought to be a Runner Up in the Altered Artist section of the Craft Stamper of the Year competition, it was with my Jewellery box.  I was as you can imagine absolutley flabbergasted to be placed, as the level of skills shown by the other winners far exceeded my own and the winners work was just amazing.

I t has really boosted my confidence and I cant wait to get my teeth into something new to alter.

So for those that have no idea what the phenomonom of WOYWW is, just pop along here to find out.

Glad you were able to come back to WOYWW. These are lovely cards. I don't often see too many cards I like, but I like all of these. And I bet you have one of those ribbon/rick rack/paper strip cutters, too. I just saw one the other day. Sorry I'm late (#4).
