WOYWW it's been so long!!!

It's been a while for me but I had to share my space with you this is what I got in for Happy Mail Yesterday (nothing has been done since) on my desk other then it tidied up the DH is warning me I'm getting lots of stuff so had to hide some away so it's neat and tidy. This is a prize I won from Lulu there is tons to play with so WOW!!! also there is a score pal on the bottom too.
 Here's a pull back of my space as you can see I'm making some windows again to the left Why I never did this set up before is beyond me it's perfect window to the left and room to cut glass on the right. Love those L shaped spaces . That's window #2 being started out of 12 it looks like but it's going be done over the summer so not in too much of a rush.
 Here's what it looks like all done the glass can't be seen through seeing it's for a hallway so if you want to run from the bathroom to a bedroom naked. SO be it lol, the neighbours can't see nothing !!
Thanks for looking

Emu vs the Ewe

So here's a clean and simple card I've made just colouring the whole thing up using pencil crayons and chalks for the swirling bg.
There us a little back story to this card. 
I posted this new Digi an Emu in my facebook group its a new image for our progressive challenge and somehow typed in Elmo the Ewe. DIDN'T NOTICE THE MISTAKE !!!  Someone kindly asked isn't it a Emu not an Ewe. OMG too funny I didn't realize that I had made the mistake way to funny so that's how this card was made up and soon an Ewe will be in the shop with Elmo in a new pose or two.
