woyww #694... GoodBye John
My craft room for WOYWW will stay like this for sometime... I will look in on you, as I miss the memory bears, the twiddlers, and the messy gelly paint plates, and all the stamping and fusycutting. I might not be able to join in as the links continue to not work so if someone could link me to stamping-ground.blogspot.com...that might help. Photos were taken from a lovely picture book my eldest daughter made him...

Happy WOYWW!? Everyone. I hoping to join in with Stamping Ground's Wednesday Blog ... but, I can't get in so it'll probably be closer to Thursday! I am getting really fed up with the pop up telling me, 'We can't find that website, try again later...' I'm tempted to fire up my old computer but I might be breaking a few environmentle rules ....diffinitely mentle ones anyway! At least I managed to load up the freebie this morning. Here is... my crafty work bench. At the moment I'm working on a 'box' birthday card.
I've put my Promarkers back where they were but on a slightly wider bit of wood, which was a bit scruffy, so I covered it in wallpaper, It's still balanced on coffee tins. I will at some point put my wooden stamps back on the shelf over my bench. I've missed them!
I have added a small magnetic strip to the shelf, to add a few small die-cuts waiting to be put away. I'm still converting cat food boxes into Promarkers holders, or little poke holes for 'things' and, cut a different way, into little drawers to hold small things that normally fall off the shelf. You can just see at the bottom of the picture my Adorable SCOREBOARD ponking out, (I keep my glass mat under there too) I have two now, a quick visit to The Crafty Charity shop and I spied a purple one... no bone folder though, so I got that even cheaper. It's in better condition than my pink one. Also got an old (but new) Sizzix whole alphabet die for 50p. Hope to get round most of you this week, if and when I can get in, so see you then! Have a great WOYWW!? or should that be WOYWT? Thank you for popping by.
This Weeks WedNeSday FrEebie... Are We There Yet!? CLOSED
Morning Crafters! Here's this weeks Wednesday freebie. 'Are We There Yet' The watermark sez Spyder's Corner, but you could almost use it as part of the drawing! I'm 'Autumn Cleaning at the moment...it appears my Spring and Summer Cleaning sort of murged into it. Well, we have had dogs stay...and finding chicken feet under the sofa put me in the zone for cleaning! Have a great day. Thank you for stopping by!
(PS The chicken feet were dog treats, but not bought by me!)

It's a Dawg-gone 60th Birthday Twist 'n' Pop Card!
I started this 6x6 Pop 'n' Twist card...or it might be a Twist and Pop, yes, that sounds better, last week to give me 'plenty' of time to finish it. (The glue was just about dry when I put it in the envelope) It's for a neighbour's hubby's 60th Birthday. I decided it had to be a doggy themed card, as they own two Old English Sheepdogs, both under a year old, so it was an easy theme to choose and a chance to use my Twist and Pop die set by Made To Surprise, a Sam Calcott design... which I nabbed the second time they came back into stock (but no stamps or paper pads though)😕.
I have the gardening set, which comes with a wheel barrow, spade, rake, a catterpilla, bees, butterflies, a bird, snails, flower pot, fence, grass, flowers and two sentiments, etc, which I missed out on when it first came out. Disappointed, I ordered a small die set with just the Twist and Pop mechanism from Amazon and that turned out lovely, with four different shaped toppers to add to the design as well... then I thought, why doesn't Sam's design have any topper dies, and it does have a picture of one on the front of the packet...but sadly 😒 that was missing from my set. Luckily I did have a couple of other dies that fitted, once I used my corner punch. So! Enough waffle, here's all about the card!
| Back View with a place to write|
The main papers I used, including the backdrops for my photos, are from First Edition, Let's Celebrate, 12x12 paper pad, (Craftlable/Dovecraft) some with foil and sparkle, some double sided. Love it! The 'Happy Birthdays' die cuts, came from The Works and The Range. Now on the front you can also see a kennel with two English Sheepdogs looking out. These are freebie downloads from Chantahiadeigns. There are LOADS of freebies, so just click in what you're looking for and you're bound to find it!
On the inside of the card the papers are from the same pad, except the ones used on the toppers, they can be downloaded from Gathered, where you'll find lots of freebies from the archives of PaperCrafts Inspirations and Cardmaking and PaperCraft. I would've preferred Pauls name to be bigger...but that 'A' I dropped on the floor months ago, was never found! The balloons were die cut from a find in the Crafty Charity Shop, near me and lastly, the 'paw' was made by a Woodware punch. I also used, A Wink of Stella, a white gell pen, some holographic card, some tiny stars and a metal eyelet. That's it I think! Have a great crafty week. Thank you for stopping by!
