WOYWW #260..Happy 5th Anniversary WOYWW..


Well it is a very special day today. One that many of us WOYWWers have been waiting for.

It is the 5th Anniversary of WOYWW and today we swap ATC's (although some of us have already started...)

Our lovely hostess Julia keeps many of us sane with WOYWW every week on her blog Stamping Ground. Many a friendship has been forged because of our weekly desk nosying and I for one couldn't be more grateful.

So Julia if you are reading this - thank you very much, here's to 5 more years!

My desk is 'staged' this week as you can see :) Trying out my new compact camera....must turn off the date stamp!

Creating ATC's has been fun and I managed to make 12 of them - I have swapped 8 already, so there are 3 left excluding the one for the 'true' swap.

Here are some photos of them - all different and all with a mini keepsake envelope -

WOYWW Anniversary ATC's and Mini Envelopes
Aren't they gorgeous? The envelopes were such fun to make too. I am so proud, they are little teeny tiny cards. I got to use all different techniques which was fun fun fun - I love them..what a great way to learn about ATC's - more swaps please!

I'll be visiting you all much later on - as I am going to see one of my colleagues and his Jazz band after work.

  6. Oh, my Claire, your ATCs are each one little treasures, including the envelopes! Now, see, you are an inspiration to me. I am bookmarking this post to remind me to start my ATCs earlier than the week OF the swap and maybe I could give them a little extra TLC like you have done! I'm so happy we are swapping!
