WOYWW

It's that time again to share our spaces and here's mine 
I finished putting together all the windows and have to do the messy part of putting in the cement so the glass doesn't jiggle and makes them more air tight but that will be later this week and right now I'm playing catch up have to do some mailing of BD cards and present out to Kay we have the same BD so we've been swapping for a while now. Mine is going to be late it looks like this year. I've been so good guess it's time for me to be behind lol
Just doing a little colouring and organizing a few things I had grouped together with bits and scraps how quickly they add up :)

So I should be able to get around this week as last week I was tad busy

Boys cards can Sparkle


Our Challenge at Incy Wincy this round is sponsored from Sasayaki Glitter and Melonheadz
I wish I had more time but alas I did manage 4 really simple cards for winter and they are all BOYZ so Bonus seeing they are always so hard to make I fine. Adding in Sparkle to a boys card can be challenging unless you have Micro Bling then it just works at least in my books it does. 
I love these Bobble head guys the set also has girls and I'm working on those later but for now here they are all matching up and super quick and easy and flat to mail !!

CLOSE UPS 



Challenges -
Christmas Cards - Anything Christmas
Great Impressions - Masculine - 7/2

Christmas Moose

This Moose just makes me smile when I look at him and he's from Joy Clair Stamps with the fun sentiment to match the trees are from the set too I stamped them in distress they didn't show up very well so I coloured over them with markers. The Paper I stamped on was the backside of some pattern paper I owned and it was a little shiny which didn't really allow the ink dry quickly.  So it could be moved around
I only used ONE colour of Brown on the moose fur and loved how much depth I got from the black ink just tinting the brown here and there. so kewl wish I had more of this paper now to play with.

Joy Claire - May anything goes **WON**

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 
and if your wondering what all this is about
