WOYWW #219 Back to work..

Hey there!

Happy WOYWW - as usual jump over to Julia's blog at Stamping Ground if you have no idea what WOYWW is and join in the fun.

Thursday will be my first day back at work - 2nd NYC agency. I had a nice week and a half off whilst I looked for a new contract.

I am writing this post on Tuesday evening, as I had originally thought I was going back to work on Weds.

My desk is reasonably tidy today because I got all frustrated yesterday with the state of it! So what can you see today..all the usual glues, tools, inks, etc along with my mouse on my cutting mat!, my glasses, a nice cool glass of water as it is HOT here, my large bottle of perfume seems to have joined the small bottle and some babygrows that I am using for cards.

I have been making lots of random things this past week, in part because I wanted to have some posts in my back pocket for when I am back at work. I haven't slipped this year with my blog posts and I'd like to maintain my momentum!

I wanted to show this card off, but had to wait until it arrived - it is the partner for JT's Snazzy Summer Crabs that she sent me, as part of our long distance card challenge (we set them ourselves!!). JT got all these random sea life die-cuts and had no idea what to do with sent me half - charming :)

Sea life challenge - 'Sea you soon!'
I think my card is hilarious and I have no idea who she is going to give it to. I am giving hers to my friend Michelle in Hawaii, who is a fan of our random thoughts..

Happy WOYWW everyone, I'll be nosying at your desks when I get home from work apologies if you get a late comment from me.



  1. That card is adorable. Had to laugh at the card, too. It was nice that you made something using gifted die cuts from your card partner. I bet that made her smile. Happy WOYWW from #1.

  2. What a cute card, that will put a smile on anyone's face!

  14. Hi Claire, You are officially in my BFF/Sister club. I LOVED my cards. AWESOME, FABULOUS, FANTASTIC, AMAZING, GLORIOUS, take your pick from any of the suggested adjectives. I have a few more if you'd like. :D YOU ROCK sister!!! I'll be sending my present off to you later today. I don't make cards, I do Mixed Media, Collage style art, so I have made you something that reflects my strengths in creating. Plus a few other little trinkets. Now when I say my strengths, doesn't mean that my work is strong yet, I'm just strongest in this style. I SOOO hope you like what I have done. We'll know in a few days. Hope you are having some Big Apple fun this weekend. I'm sure being away from your family and friends, the UK is hard. At least boredom is not something to suffer in NYC. I grew up in NYS, near Syracuse, I never got to visit NYC. Now that I have a friend there, I may need to remedy that someday. I'll let you know when you pkge is on it's way. Would you consider sending me your email address?? Mine is
    Hoping you are well. (((HUGS))))
