Whats On Your Work Wednesday 146!...times jogging on!

Well the weeks seem to fly by at the moment, there arnt enough days in the week! I always appear to be last minuet every time I do or go somewhere & that's just not me, dont what's going on! As you can see tonight I made the most of the time I have to make up some of my latest Hunkydory Adorable Scorable card kits. Good fun to make easy to co-ordinate as all the elemnets are there for you. I do add a lot of other bits n bobs to these kind of cards to add a touch of "My Style" to them! I love my new Tonic Scissors they are so easy to use with my rubbish hands (I have Rheumatoid Arthritis) my grip is getting worse & my fingers dont fit properly in to regular scissor handles any more! But with thes Taaaa Daaaaa! Easy!

As you can see this was some of the stash I purchased at the GNPE show In Harrogate at the weekend. I saw loads of demos by the like of Barbara Grey, Leoni Pojul Chloe Endean, whos stamps are lovely & just had to get the very versatile Dandilion & Bling Swirl. Looking forward ti trying out the Fab Foil & Embossing Glitter by WOW. Invested in a set of Grand Calibre Circle Dies, wanted them for a while! And other bits n bobs like ink pads & some of the super slim acrylic stamp blocks, easier again to hold for me! I look forward to finding time as soon as possible to have a good long crafty play with my new stash!

And finally it was my lovely Mums 80th Birthday and this was the card I made for her, she loved it! I like the easel circle cards, they look good for a special occasion!

I would like to thank everyone who commented on my blog on the last woyww I entered. It was so lovely for folks I had visited to stop by & leave me a comment. I really enjoy reading them & do value others opinions on cards I make, its good to have others around you for a bit of support & positivity! Thanks so much!

Enjoy your crafty week everyone!
And Happy Spring Equinox to all!

Wish I could have made it to Harrogate but Mother's Day got in the way - maybe next time.

Bet your Mum loved her 80th birthday card, and no wonder, it is so pretty.

Lovely stash - I have used some of that Fab foil and it makes a subtle difference to stamp designs.
Damn the RA - keep working around it as long as you can.
The card for your Mother is lovely... what a splendid innings she's had.

Hi Lavinia, I know what it is like to live with RA, I had a wrist replaced but it is still weak. TH scissors really help. I bought far too much at Harrogate and have reprimanded myself (lol). Love the 80th birthday card, it is beautiful. Anne #66

At first I was having a terrible time leaving comments on blogs last night. They didn't want to post. NOW I get "service unavailable when I try to leave a comment. It's really frustrating. I see others having trouble with MY link, too.

I've never seen Dusters before, but I like them. They look a bit like stipple brushes. I sure hope you get this. Happy WOYWW from # 7.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh your Mum's card is fab, no wonder she was pleased! Am with you on the slim acrylic blocks, they don't need to be clunky do they. Have fun with your foiling, I do love it, and can be easily spotted totally overdoing it!!

Hi Lavinia, I loved visiting you work desk although I'm a little late this week...you have an amazing amount of stuff that looks so intriguing. Colour dusters for a start.
Your card looks very special and I'm sure your Mum loved it.
By the way...I'm from the Wirral ~ well way back because I've been on the move for over 22 years!
Have a wonderful weekend, currently in Melbourne. :D

I was at Harrogate too, we probably passed each other somewhere along the line. It was great to see Leoni for the first time, what a nice lady. Looks like you got some lovely new goodies there. I came away with ink dusters too!!
Your Mum's card is a stunner, I bet she loved it. Happy Birthday to her.
