It's What's On YOUR Worktop! #612


AAAAGH! It's Wednesday again!! And Welcome to WOYWW #112 My Golly-Gosh! Time is running wild! If you want to join in... Just click up there and you'll find yourself over on the Stamping Ground as if by magic. Simples!  

This week it's about winnings, lost and found things and drawers. If you look on the shelf above, you'll see a bookmark (with horses) from our freezing swimming crafter Caro... I'd just found it under my desk, where it had fallen out from the back of one of the drawers, so I feel a bit of a fraud this week, as I was doing something crafty and then, I wasn't, coz I couldn't find my bank Card and the last time I used it was by my Laptop, buying stuff from The Works; found The Works loyalty card but no bank card. Decided it MUST've fallen down the back of the desk... soooo- I should think there's just as much stuff under by desk as well as stuff that's been pushed out and fallen down the back from the drawers. No way of getting to it, so of course the whole lot had to be pulled out. (and other stuff pushed out into the hall to make way) Anyway, never found the bank card... but there's still the rest of the craft room to go through yet! 

 Won two prizes last week, (and a top three) these lovely stamps and die-cut Gnomes from Crafty Hazels Christmas Challenge and some digi's from a Promarkers Challenge!

Had jab last Friday, fine until early Saturday morning and then I was suddenly shivering!  So the weekend ended up being a bit of a 'Catch up' with what's on the box weekend... which still leaves piles of crafty stuff on my desk and the drawers on floor, while I still hunt for that Bank Card....the one with the Black Horse on it. 

 And talking of drawers, Lady Pam went on a walk about again, first she said she was going to Sainsbury's and then, changed it to, going to a funeral... at 2:30 in the morning, in the dark with her pushy wheely thing! Luckily her neighbour's son saw her and brought her back. We tell her, probably not enough, to, 'Stay in Doors and Wear Yours drawers!' (she laughs!) Her lovely carer Helen, took her out in the car the next day, down to the beach to watch the waves. Pam had her hot water bottle and they had ice cream!

That's it I think! Last picture shows stuff that come in the post, freebies from mags  and some of the other stuff lost at the back of my desk! (I needed those fairy lights at Christmas!!) So, if you don't feel like crafting, go dig out your drawers... you'll never know what you might find! Then go and visit Stamping Ground! Bye For now! Stay Safe!  Thank you for stopping by!

Polar Play Time! OOPS! STop! Wrong Title! Snow Buddies Noteletts

 I've been meaning to  post these little notelets (with envelopes) for ages, but I'm afraid the 'jab' got in the way of posting and I went a bit quear, (more then usual!) -slept most of the weekend and then forgot!  So, at last, here they are.  I posted a different set  here a little while back, and there's still another set to come... aren't they just toooo cute!

 All the papers and little critters come from a paper pad called 'Polar PlayTime' by Craft Consortium,   Sorry! No!  They didn't, I'm still battling and arguing with the scissors to cut those ones out!! But these lovely little critters come from a kit by 'The Paper Boutique' and are called 'Snow Buddies.' I bought them from Emerald Crafts 

and these too were soooo hard to cut into, I mean, they are such lovely papers and are sooo darn cute! but, as I've said before, I'm gonna use them and not just smell and stroke them! (okay, maybe I shouldn't've said that out loud! Or, buy two packs... like I did  with the other set! Shhh!)

Here's the little penguin peeping out from inside the case.There's more little critters inside plus the envelopes too. I've mounted all the toppers on miri card. I think there is only one just on a paper die cut

here you can see the back and the front of the case. I only had a scrap of different coloured ribbon, so I went with the same brown as I used before. 
Little Notelets being made
Here's a picture of the notelets being made. In the background you can see the one I posted before. And here's a link to Sam Calcotts YouTube page where the idea came from. That's it for now! Thank you for stopping by. I'd love to add this to some ...

Just One More Snowman


 Another 'Snowy' from PennyBlack, coloured in Promarkers and one of the last Christmas cards, I thought lost and then found again, forever hiden in the jumble of 'stuff' that fills my craft space, hall, living room, and the bed in the spare room!

Snowy was already coloured in his purple hat and scarf when I found him down the back of my bench. Spiders removed, I recoloured and resparkled him with silver and gold Stic
kles. He was already mounted on a scalloped diecut retangle. The ponsetti's were the last in a packet from years back, as was the bits of red mirror card and bakers swine. The snowflake was left over from another project, although this time it hasn't been embossed, it's just plain ol' paper. Both the Christmas papers (inside and out) were from 'The Works'. I like the way Snowy peeps around the extra bit of  topper, as though he'd been hiding, which when I think about it, he was! thank you for stopping by!  Hoping to find some....

WOYWW #611


 It's Wednesday. It's WOYWW #611. Please come and join in, over on Stamping Ground, even though it's a very sad WOYWW this  week, but don't be sad, she'll be crafting with the Angels, showing them how's it's done! Sending hugs to all who knew her, in the real world and in Blogland.

  I've been cutting up dineosours. It's taken me ages as all my crafts knives are blunt... I even nicked hubbies super standley blade (with holster) and even that struggled! "Mind yoour finger's!" he kept saying! "You'll cut them off doing it like that!" No worries. I still have my fingers.

I have one more dineosour to do, and then little Oliver will have a nice surprize in the post. I moved the mess back a bit as I had a delivery from 'The Works'. About 5 things I wanted were swiped from my basket as I took too long (days actually!) My fault, must have pressed the wrong button as it kept saying 'that email is already in use'  Course it is, it's me! Never mind, I have a money off thingy to use next time and a nice big box to cut up and make into something!

 I made this tiny little book using one sheet from a 6x6 paper pack from Craft Box called 'The Dreamer' and another little bit to cover the cover (The Card for that was from a 'Jordon's Crunchy Crisp with Strawberries' cereal packet) The booklet has little pockets, which I haven't filled with anything yet. Apart from that, I finished off another Christmas Card and I 'played' with an old CD but...that's not quite turned out as I wanted Hubby took one look at it, and said, "Don't try and play that now, it'll ruin the machine!" Hmmm, as if I would!

 Anyway. Here's a closer look at the little book... sorry about the dim and slightly plurred picture. A link to one  of the little noteletts in a case is HEREIf you'd like to see them. (Some folks said they were looking forward to that post) Some more noteletts are coming up later.

That's it for this week.  Hubby's had his Jab yesterday and I've got mine on Friday. He said it's painless. Stay Safe! Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Valentines Day To You All!


 It was about quarter to midnight on Saturday evening when I noticed the time and realised it was nearly Valentines day! So I stopped what I was doing, (trying to get a crafty thing-a-me-jig off a top shelf with a long shoe horn) and quickly went through my 6x6 papers, most of which are years old and some never even opened! This year, I have decided I must battle my fears and use up some of my older papers. I must be brave!  I am getting there! But I admit, I am a crafty hoarder! So, here's one 'quick' Valentine's card for hubby. 

I found some mostly red 6 x6 papers from a freebie pack from Quick Cards Made Easy from waaaaay back. On the front was Tattered Ted holding a heart, but he's  grey and blue and didn't really go with the papers so, I stamped out a ForeverFriends Heart bear six times instead; coloured him with Promarkers  and then chopped off verious bits of him... head... ears... legs... paws and then decoupaged him.  (It didn't hurt!)


I only had scraps of red mirror card, so opened some pinky-red-ish miri card from Hobby Craft. (Nice, different shades going from a misty pink to purple) added that to the blank card, added the paper, covered some of the card left from cutting up the front cover of the paper pack with matching paper, that in turn was fixed to the card after I added the ribbon and matching bow. Not very manly, so... out came the cogs and gears die cuts, which of course is very manly! I coloured the wooded word, love, with a Poppy Red Promarker. Then added the silver hearts (from The Works, those are quite new). The sentiment I did on the computer after hunting and not finding the stamp with the same words.


 Here's the inside, showing off Tattered Ted. He was cut from the cover of the paper pack and he's also standing on a strip of card from the front of the pack too. The die cut heart was in my bits left over from Christmas. Sorry about the pictures, still haven't got around to getting a day-light light for my lamp. The last thing I did was attach Forever Friend Bear to more miri card and fixed him in place with 3D stickers. No, there's more... the very last thing I did, was to cover the heart with Glossy Accents. Finished! Thank you for stopping by! Hoping to find some...
