WOYWW 503

So.. Wednesday ... again... time to hook up at Julia's The Stamping-Ground for WOYWW week 503
so I finished (apart from a title) the journal page from last week  - blog post with a few extra details here  


Paperartsy have been at Creativation in the US but some of their new stamps have already landed! 

thanks to some speedy service by Sue at Country View Crafts these stamps ordered on Sunday arrived on Tuesday!

More goodies to play with...

I needed a birthday card too, for one of my good crafting buddies.

I had felt too full of cold last week to devote the time and energy to it I would normally have done, so this ended being a very basic affair.

She should have received it in time for her birthday today (and doesn't read my WOYWW posts anyway) so am including it here!

Looking forward to catching up with your desks soon.

Love the card for your friend and as I am not in a stamping mode it is something i could adopt. I am sure I have that die but if not I will get on the internet and order one. Too damned nice to not have.
Love the journal age too - great background and lovely butterflies.

They looks like some super new stamps Helen. Hope you are feeling better, it's been a nasty one this year, but being up top gives us a bit of a boost.

Sorry you've been down with the flu too Helen, it certainly knows how to put a halt to creativity. Sue is the best for getting products out to us so promptly. Enjoy those stamps... I love your wildflower card, those dies are favs of mine and the new sets are just as nice!!
Happy woyww hugs Tracey #9

I do hope the cold is on the run, god I hate them, they are so inconvenient! No damage to your mojo miss Helen, the card for your chum is gorgeous. Very impressed by CVCrafts and new designs. Oh lord.

Lovely butterfly pages - colours right up my street, of course, so no surprises that I like them. But I also really love the meadow flower card with those fiery sunset colours - amazing! - and the quote works beautifully.
