I've just returned from Brighton so things are hectic as I try to catch up. I've received some lovely ATCs and cards in honour of WOYWW's 3rd Birthday and I've sent off 15 ATCs to those picked in my draw (but I did send one to Julia too). Thanks to Annie, Jo, Donna and Trish who sent these fabulous ATCs to me as it was such a joy to open the mail when I arrived home. It's great to have an extra birthday even if it isn't mine!
Thanks also to those who have written after receipt of mine.
Message to Vicky... your atc will be in the post asap as I now have your address thanks to Julia!
All this came about thanks to the weekly expose of our work spaces, the brainchild of our illustrious Julia of the stamping ground, where our numbers have reached around a staggering 200.... call in and spot the messy ones, (like me), and marvel at the tidiness of the special few.
My desk this week is in the midst of making a special 60th Birthday card for a friend of one of my DDs. The birthday lady is a patchworker so I am trying to make it special for her.
not quite finished as I'm still thinking whether I should add scrolls ....
This pic has been added Weds as I took WOYWWers advice (thanks folks!) and whilst most suggested no scrolls, Rita advised coloured scrolls so I tried some cut out of some of my patchwork paper and I also changed the top edge. I think it works well, so this is it! Fini!
Here's the paper patchwork which hangs inside
and a special message is hidden underneath....
A few more tweaks and it will be ready.
Have a great WOYWW and I look forward to spying on as many of you as possible!
