Woyww...not much!

Ok. Very quick post this week, I'm at work, this is on timer. Ready steady....go! It's Wednesday!! Charge over to the Stamping Ground, say hi to Julia, sign into Mr Linky and come and join in!!
From last week, we have the continuing story of the glue tubes. Most People said, "Throw them away!!" well, I had it in my head (and so did Liverpool Lou) that I would do this.... with them. Run them thro' my BigShot...and made pretty patterns, making sure of course... that it's the empty tubes you run through! Well, it kept me busy (but not quiet) for a little while!
Camera's a bit sick, has no memory, so pictures are a bit icky (That's the word I meant!) The second photo shows some cards I'm in the middle of making. Lady wanted to buy some, so I took some round to her house and she said, "I like that one..." It was a plain card that had found it's way into my pile by mistake and had nothing except some Pink Petticoat papers on it. "I'll have four of those!" So that's what I'm doing! And that must be by shortest WOYWW Post, ever!! (Cheer/clap!)
Nearly reached 300 Followers, so will do an extra freebie digi when I do!! Thank you for stopping by!!!

Sorry you've missed this weeks freebie,
A new Freebie will be available on

  13. Laughing at the woman picking the (almost) blank card. That'll be the quickest and easiest order ever!!

    Kudos to you for experimenting with the big shot - I only use my cuttlebug for nestabilities!

    Lots of nice punches to the back of your picture - I love punches.

  14. I was already thinking I loved the diecuts and thought you'd used gold card hehe So glad you used the empty tubes - see, yah boo sucks to those who said chuck 'em! hahahaha The plain cards do look pretty though. And thanks heaps for the freebie, fishy is fab.

  15. I like the idea of using the glue tubes, but it's something that I would get DH to do with my old red Sizzix. Keeps him happy and out of my hair!!!!

  16. I was a bit confused (it doesnt take a lot!) but I take it that the metal bits are the glue tubes? they look brill - I dont use much glue in tubes anymore so I might have to get the paints out and see if I can have a play at that one day (love to play me!). Thanks for the comment on my blog about the box - I had fun making that and congrats on 300 followers. Have a great woyww.

  53. Hey Lyn

    How are you? hope you are well and sorry for not visiting in a while.

    Soeey for being a bit thick - but those metal pieces on your desk - are they the empty glue tubes? I've probably totally missed the point!!!!

    LOL at the lady chosing something that you'd merely put some papers on... no accounting for taste - and so much for your hard work on the other cards!!!

    Hugs

  54. Hiya, I looked at your blog and you're so inspiring that I'm now a follower too. Just like others I ready your quick post at great speed, it felt like the right thing to do! lol Thanks for the cute fish. I'd love to have a go at making my own digis, I'd need one of those tablet things first though I'm guessing. Maybe one day... Oooh I love pink petticoat, used some of their papers today, not on their own though!

  56. My first time here and I already learned something! I knew I kept my red sizzix for a reason. I'm not sure how you get those tubes unstuck and flattened out as all my glues seem to be in bottles nowadays but they sure look great.I have paint tubes though :) NAn

    You have to admit that painting your house is Sort of fun...
    In that, "that sucked, but remember when you got really hot and made up all of those swear words?" kind of way.
    At least, that's how it's going around here.

  72. OMGoodness Lyn - I am nearly out of breath, reading so quickly through your "quickie" post! I need a lie down. That's a good idea actually - it's almost midnight - yikes! Anyway - to be serious for a moment - I love snooping around your desk - you have so much crafty stuff, and yet so much working space too - must be a heck of a long desk methinks! Love all the MS punches. Does that Superman book belong to John I wonder? Have a great weekend. Loadsa hugs, Sylvia xxxx
