WOYWW #284....Back To Reality...


I've missed a couple of WOYWW's recently - it's been so busy! But I am happy to be back and joining the fun.

Feel like I am rambling? Pop over to Stamping Ground and join our leader Julia and the gang for some desk nosying...

I went back to work this week, after 10 days of sheer bliss in Mexico with Hubby. I am still all relaxed and happy, so work feels pretty easy right now.

Here are a few photos -

Mexico 2014 - Our terrace, Hubby and I, My Iguana Friend and Me!
Now on to my desk...yes, your eyes do not deceive you..brand shiny new distress paints on my desk..I took a little trip to Michael's last night and the paints were on sale $1.99. The consumer junkie in me loves this time of year in America! I also bought the mini glitter alphabet stickers - love these mini stickers. My glasses - unusually the pair that belong on my desk. There is also a stack of cards to be posted - there were a couple of new babies born whilst we were away and I also wanted to send thank you cards to my MIL and SIL for all the booty they brought us.

Here is one of the thank you cards -

Thank You Card
I CASEd a great card I saw on Pinterest. I used Gelatos and an aquabrush, the stamp was in our Anniversary card from JT - isn't that sweet! The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts.

Happy WOYWW everyone.

  5. Sounds like a great holiday. Love the bee card.
    Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 39

  6. Gorgeous card. Like the look of the glittery alphas too :)
    Happy Wednesday

  7. Hi Claire, Mexico looks AMAZING! What a big terrace, and is that a hot tub?

    Your CAS card is really cute. I can't resist stash sales either, but I think you get more of them over there, and I don't have many retailers within easy travelling distance so I rely on the online retailers sales - which clearly doesn't stop me getting too much stash!

    Happy WOYWW.
