WOYWW 158?

The year is flying and it's only 2 weeks to my birthday which means it's only 6 months to Boxing Day.... yikes! Anyhow, it's Wednesday again and we are ready to meet up at Julia's the Stamping Ground for another blog-hop-fest round the crafty spaces of the world.   Thanks to everyone who stopped by last week and left comments.

I have received my ATC swap now, from my swap partner in Canada - thanks so much Lorinda; together with some other goodies - that's so kind!

 and the one on the left came from Sandra in Australia which is also beautiful
then I had to do a little bit of shopping! I never have enough sentiments - well these should keep me quiet!
and some stencils!!

Before I let you go, if you get a chance, wish Hels happy birthday for today (hope the card arrived Hels!) Have a great day, Hels!

The thing about the worldwide participation in WOYWW is that stuff is shuttleing all around the globe - nice, in that we get to see ATCs for weeks to come, but sad that it all takes time. But in the end it's all worth it!

Happy WOYWW

Valerie said...

pretty ATC's! What fun it must be to send and receive. I didn't participate this year as I had just started. Maybe next year. Of course we crafty types and never have too much of our crafting goodies! Valerie #26

Sian said...

Hi Helen, Carmen was kind enough to point me in your direction when she discovered I was looking for a et of sentiment stamps. The ones you have posted today look perfect. I'm very tempted :)

butlersabroad said...

I struggle with sentiments too and never seem to have the right one for the occasion so I use the computer a lot. It's a great technique but you have to plan around it a bit. I also know a lady who makes her own rub ons by printing on some special paper, I think that's something I should look in to! Lovely atc's, have a great week.

Hugs

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Sentiment stamps! My goodness, you truly can't have too many of those. A friend of my mother's passed away awile ago. She was a bit of a stamper and my mom purchased her collection of goodies for me. There were lots of great finds in there but I was surprised that there was not one single sentiment stamp in the bunch. I mentioned it to my mom and it turns out that her friend's first love was calligraphy! I guess in that case, you can have too many sentiment stamps. Great ATCs, sentiments and stencils. Have fun playing!

Haa Haa! My friend said the other day that having a birthday was the best. You get six months to look forward to it and once it is over you get six months to look forward to Christmas!! Yeay!
Love those stamps. I take it they have a www. then! But maybe I will wait until after next week! (Shhh!)

Bernice said...

Its so useful to have lots of sentiments stamps - I just bought some recently from LOTV - they should cover every occasion! Lovely ATCs.

Hi Helen. It must be my sons birthday in two week too then, because he is six months from Christmas Day! I'd better make a start on his card. Happy Birthday for two weeks time.

Isn't it fun to get ATCs from around the world. I love it.
