WOYWW 263 - where we hope to welcome back Julia

Well, poor Julia - missing in action last week, poorly on holiday and undergoing surgery.. Hopefully there'll be a link up this week at the Stamping-Ground. Hope, even more, that you are recovering well, Julia, and taking it easy... ((hugs))

Since we last met properly, I have received another ATC from the anniversary swap, from Kezzy - it's fabulous, and thanks too for all the extras!

they are artfully posed on my square journal that I use for the Darcy Wilkinson Paperartsy monthly journal challenge and since I snapped the photo above, I've (finally) made a start on June's - check the original here - whilst this is what I've done so far... in front of the football, (as you know, I'm a BIG football fan, so the World Cup is great for me (too many late nights though!)
It will look much better soon, I promise!!

There will also be a Dragons Dream tag later this afternoon - my choice of theme this fortnight, and obviously I'm sworn to secrecy till then, about the choice of theme... suffice it to say, it features something I love lots right now (no, not football!) come back and see, why don't you...

Looking forward to catching up with your desks as soon as I can.

Oh so lovely ATC gift there and loving what you've been creating as always!

Neet said...

One of these days I will join in with that challenge (DD).
Wondering how that page is going to turn out - bet it will be something special knowing you.
Don't have too many late nights - ok when you can have later mornings but no good if you have to get up.
Take care
Hugs, Neet (26 I think) xx

I've had a few more ATCs drift in as well, but not as organized as you to share them. :) I still see some of your journal pages in my mind's eye - it was such a treat to see them IRL at the crop. I might have to browse back a bit and make an actual list :) I'll go to the Artistamp show in Newbury in July and it would be good to at least TRY to score a few of the things you've shown that I covet.... :D

Happy WOYWW!

Unknown said... your happy mail! I'm actually enjoying the World Cup too. Of course, soccer is not quite as huge here in the U.S., but it's always fun how a million more kids here in the U.S. sign up for soccer when they see all the fun and excitement surrounding the World Cup! Hugs! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #44

What a cutie that monster is! My kids are also football fans and have to wake up at 3 in the morning to watch some games. It was a sad day for them when Spain lost.
Happy WOYWW!

Hi Hels

what a lovely collection of ATC's you have gathered there - how lovely of the WOYWWers to send you all those lovely ATC's Helen.

Wonder how many you could make if you used a diffierent stamp each time - from the 'few' you own of course, lol.
