If your wondering about WOYWW hop over to Julia's blog to find out more & join in
Here is my desk this afternoon.
I've been making a couple of cards .
Really I've  just messing about trying out different things & quite pleased with the out come.
I had some old scrapbook paper which I know I wasn't going to use it for scrapbooking so I decided to put it to some good use as a back ground for my card. 
I had some card which match pretty well which helped .
I cut the Hugs letters out four times each them stuck them on top of each other which makes the letters stand out more .
 Here are the two finished cards

Birthday Card

Today I'm sharing a birthday card which I made for my husband birthday.
The ship used on this card  was a die cut which was given to me by  a friend . I used my white Poca pen to paint the sails white.
the rest of the piece I cut out using my Marie Anne die.

Starting blogging again

It's been a year since I last blogged .
Not sure why I stopped blogging & can hardly believe its been that long.
My  how the time has flown by.
I'm going to try not to leave it so long nest time & do my  best to blog at least once a month.

I belong to a crafting group on facebook called ukstampers , where we have swaps running every month like a Postcard swap , Atc swap, Tag swap, and a few other things going on .
The group is run by Sid , who does an amazing  job organising it all so that it runs smoothly .

Today I'm  sharing my Tag & Postcard for the April swap with a theme of anything goes.

Halloween Mini Album

Halloween is a big yearly event in our house .
We like to decorate the garden & welcome trick or treats people.
I grow a few pumpkins for the grandchildren & we buy some as well which the grandchildren carve.
Last year my hubby & son got involved in the carving of the pumpkins & Hubby dressed up for Halloween night for the first time as well.
My mini album has been made using the bind it all & is 6x6 inches.
My post is a bit photo heavy & have tried to turn the pages into double page layouts.
I've used mainly a Martha Stewart cobweb punch  through out my book & papers from a Halloween recollections paper pad & K& Co Halloween paper pad. I've also used some stamped images & added wobbly eyes on a few things as well to keep it looking fun.

February Postcard Swap.

This my entry for the February's postcard swap on ukstampers .
The theme set by Sid who is running the swap was to use a face anywhere on your postcard.
The face I've used was cut with a die by Leonie Pujol on black card.
I've used Acrylic paint by Martha Stewart & paperartsy for my colours & a versa fine ink pad Vintage Sepia with a Kaiser craft wood grain stamp.
The hexagons are also die cut using Diamond press dies & stamp a checkerboard pattern on them with a darkroom door stamp.
