WOYWW #690


Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #690

This is where I have been working today:

I was making a set of ATCs ready for a swap - I shouldn't really post them until they are received but I don't think anyone in the swap will look.
I have been doing various things with my shimmery water colours - at the back is a card I made using my Cricut and an Alex Syberia svg, and then painting it.
There's an empty stencil packet - I used it in one of my journal pages yesterday (this will be posted tomorrow!). This is a new stencil - I received 4 packages of goodies this week. Lots of new things to play with!

I don't really have much to share this week - I've been side-tracked by other things. Babysitting one year old Ollie - I actually looked over him over night - a first!
And then I got a puncture, so I have spent quite a lot of time organising the car.
I did do one of the other workshops from that virtual retreat ( I now have 3 left to do!)
This was using Distress Oxides and stencils to make cards. These were my version:

To finish, a rainbow over the house:

Anyway, all for now - see you next week...

Happy WOYWW!


  1. How lovely to be looking after the little one, hope you had a good time! The ATCs sounds pretty and I like the cards with the blokes on, very different. Nice rainbow too, they always cheer me up!

  2. Love the cards with the men. Did you stencil the men separately- trying to work how you did it! Lovely rainbow. Happy WOYWW. Angela #12

  3. Loving those Oxide cards Susan and the ATCs look amazing too. Glad you have had some time with the little one. Trying to visit as many desks as possible before we head up to Scarborough for three nights. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #15

  4. I've had another busy morning with my fittings/sewing plus I have now finished the eye spy quilt so am taking a break to visit all my fav blogs.
    I always love to see pics of rainbows.
    I will be MIA for a couple of weeks so will catch up with you when I return.

  5. Hi Susan, I'm here just been a bit distracted today. Sorry because I'm sure I've used that excuse before Lol! I love to see a rainbow they make me remember how wonderful nature is. The cards are great and I love the techniques you've used on them. The Big and Juicy in pads used to be very popular and are a mixture of colours which can make interesting stamping etc. They are by Ranger.
    Wishing you a very happy and productive woyww when you get the chance! Angela x11x

  6. How lovely to have Ollie overnight! the atcs and the distress cards are just gorgeous! Happy WOYWW and love the rainbow! Helen #1

  7. How fun to take care of the little one! Great ATCs and fun cards. Love the rainbow!
    Have a great week!

  8. Lots of fun looking after the little one. Had our granddaughters overnight a little while back, think they take care of us now though. Anne x 13

  9. What better excuse for a lack of crafting than Grandson Babysitting?? Love the cards and the swap ATCs (from what I can see!) look fab.
    Happy (late again) WOYWW

  10. Wow super duper rainbow. Love the father's day cards and your ATC's look lovely too. Sorry you're cold, I'm personally longing for Autumn! Happy WOYWW BJ#10

  11. HI Susan. Aww to have the little one overnight. Did that remind you of how young we no longer are? LOL. Mine are beyond the 'looking after' for the most part. Lovely cards! I'm soo looking forward to playing with more of my toys. Creative Blessings! Kelly #18

  12. Lovely blending with the Oxides on the Men cards, love the warmth those two colours give to something. Those are the colours I chose for my tag book covers and the cover on my calendars.
    Gorgeous shot of the rainbow - perfect.
    Hugs, Neet xx 2
