WOYWW + Winners

Happy WoYWW and here's my space this week working on a DT creations and I've got an envelope all set to mail off to Miss Julia for the big WOYWW crop So I still have 3 ATC's To trade and if I make some more I'll be happy to swap more it's fun so in total I've made 18 of them which just was one big colouring fest I'll share them on my WOYWW #6 post and just share my fave 2 with you here when I announce the winner...s From last week with the ATC image I used 
Here is my space and I've labeled it all up for you :)

Now I don't know if this will work but the marker that is standing up I have the tip I always use facing down hoping the ink will make it's way into it seeing it's slightly  not as strong as it use to be unless I use the other side it's working perfectly.
 Here are my two fave and none of the ATC's look alike I just to play with colours. When I was making them and I loved colouring up the zombie girls it's just fun there is no mistake when you create creepy images a mistake is just an added bit of detail/depth./EWW you did that lol.
  
 Limited Runs Two Faced Girl
Zombie and Normal
and here are my Winners
I pulled 3 names out and just need your email
and I'll send you these two Digi
Pat Taviss
Christine
and
Kristina Majuri

Have a wonderful day

Beach Baby

A Day at the beach and here is a stamp I won from Holley she's a Sweet Pea Stamp from Elizabeth Bell she's just a cutie. She's so cute and I wanted to make it feel like a day at the beach. Where it's still to cold to be. But Soon :)
I stamped this image on the back of one of my scrap papers and it has a shiney effect on it that worked out in my favor seeing it gave her a look like she's been in the sun a little to long and is starting to burn.

WOYWW + WINNER + GIveaway

Happy WOYWW well here's my Whole space I love that it's a cozy little corner that I share with our computer there is a black chest with all that I'm trying to sell and holds all my finished cards so they stay dust free. 

A Closer look the two purses I  Made using the same fabric just the reverse side for each of them 
they don't hold that much but they are perfect for going out for a night and you don't want to carry a lot with you. Underneath them is some ATC's I've been colouring for WOYWW #6 and I'm making two different types you can see the image below I'm using for them. I don't want to wreak the surprize just yet so they are flipped over at the moment I'm half way done. All of them are coloured differently, I can't seem to create the same one twice it seems just have to create a back for them all and add a little something extra extra to them before they are finished.
Here's what I've used for my ATC seeing it's WOYWW 6 I thought why not make it a sweet/evil combo seeing some of us love those quirky dark images out there or take the sweet and just zombied
 them all up :P

OPPS almost forgot the winner from last week and is number 4 

Congrats and I'll send you your GC off to you to enjoy 
Happy WOYWW 
and I'll pop around to as many people as I can
Plus I'll give away these two digi above to one lucky person
just because I can :) 
I know a lot of people ask but I'm in a rut and would love some ideas on what you'd like to see me make for a new digi and if I make the one you suggest I'll send it to you as a bonus !!

Little Boys at Work

Boys cards always can be such a tough one to create so here's one I did the only problem I have with this stamp is it ends to quickly I should have stamped the front on the back in hindsight but I just coloured it instead.  For those of you who know Darnell holds a challenge everyonce in a while to get us using our New/Old stash that's just lying around see those buttons they are OLD they are REALLY OLD Over a few decades old I believe they are bakelite from 1940's they are older then me.  So I think I've gotten the Never Been used stash covered on this one for sure, 
Challenges - 

NBUS - AG #4 (Buttons from 1940's ,Charm)

Darnell's Challenge

Vintage Buttons - WOJ Hemp Cord, Love Charm. Paper - Basic Grey, Bazzil Cardstock.
Markers - Faber Castell, Sharpie,Spectrum Prisma Color. Ink Memento

WOYWW

Here is my space this week I've just finished two DT cards and haven't touched and noticed I haven't posted up anything for WOYWW
The Blue book holds some fancy pre done die cuts they get all stuck together if they are all jammed in a bag and this old photo album works perfectly to slide them in 

I did manage to finish two purses last week little totes I'll try to pop a picture up of them together for next week 

thanks for looking hugs Nikki
I'll pop around later on to as many peeps as I can

which has the gold lining inside Love this material it's a Linen all the way from Italy So pretty!!!

WOYWW + RAK

Well I've not been creating to many paper crafts this week I've been sewing up a few pillows and creating some new digital stamps to finally put in the shop. Spring is coming and we all want some nice warm weather not that sticky hot weather. I love spring and fall so here is my space .
It's funny I took this picture and realized how messy it looks oh and I treated myself to some new marker a set of spectrum light shades 24 new ones seeing I really wanted them lol didn't need em just couldn't put it down once I picked it up lol
 So right after I took this picture I put my sewing machine away to see if I could do any thing with the left overs from the pillows they where sample pieces I bought for 3 dollars each and most of the material was originally super expensive a yard from 20-70 so loved it and they where in the new colour pallet I really want to play in so I'm guessing a small tote bag will be made with the scraps 
 Here's a close up of them such pretty colours I've bought a few others seeing I was a good girl and chopped these all up and made pillows and the cases are not coming off if some one spills something on these they are all going in the wash to get cleaned up 
 So I managed to get to a lot of people last week and will try again this week to do the same and follow whoever leaves a comment so I can see your desk early gotta love Blog lovin for that I have a whole WOYWW section so I only have to view who's posted there spaces up.

Also anyone who leaves a comment will be in to win 
a Mini RAK from Limited Runs Digital Stamps to
Ends next WED !!

Happy Wed
