WOYWW - Geek SERIES !!! lol

Happy WOYWW well here's my space this week and I'll be into the stainglass for a while I have to make 20 windows YEP 20 of them YIKES !!! that's a lot of paper cuts coming my way for sure we are redoing the windows in our sunroom and DH is starting on the frames that goodness he can make those It's going to look really nice and I will share pictures with you all I've just been trying to figure out a design but I need ##'s for sizes so I can work on the pattern of things etc I can draw rough images but I won't know if they will work till I get the size of each window to see if the design will fit or need to be tweaked. 

Now Check this out for those of  you overseas Canada Post has the GEEK series of stamps.Now if only they could make DR Who stamps lol that would be the BOMB 
or if we really wanna get geeky how about Red Dwarf stamps ... I love the BBC we use to get it for free on TV when we didn't have cable the few channels that we did get, had that on it.  

So have a Happy WED and I will pop around to as many people as I can

Happy WOYWW Here is my desk today lots of drawings for my little shop Limited Runs just have to turn them into digi a new digionce you cut the cake you find out. Also started a facebook group for Limited Runs and all of a sudden it's getting lots of attention with lots of joiners which is really amazing that so many people joined it so quickly in a few days I'm so touched by it 
(It could also be the Free digi's to snag too might be an attraction)
Picture to the left is for one of my friends having a baby and they are having a gender reveal party is it a girl a boy ?? So I thought pink and blue would be a fun card to make.  You can see all my drawings off to the right some will make the cut some will make the recycling lol
 The Pull back of my desk  you can see the lovely house card from Judy that is a fabric house too so kewl and so full of little details it's ADORABLE !!!  I finished my pocket letter up top there just working on filling up the back and then finding a swap buddy now the post office is running for now YAH!!! 
So I'll be popping around to as many blogs as I can
Have a wonderful day

Happy WOYWW everyone !!!
Well here's my space not much going on it at the moment you can spy a couple new digi's I've been working on Mini Monsters on my easel and I've got two done trying to make a few more to make a little collection. In the middle is a pocket letter I'm still playing around with above it is a card from Darnell for my birthday last week it arrived one day after. Not that the mail system around here is going to last much longer it seems umm we will wait and see how that goes. Now it's Friday the maybe cut off date do they not realize the more times they strike the less customers want to use them?  So will have to wait and see what other companies do to snag us to use them and if the cost makes sense to use them . So on the Right is my book filled with stickers and other add ons that are some what flat embellishments.
that's about it and I'll try to get around to all that comment on me even if it means Mon/Tues next week then I am SUPER LATE yet again

Something Strange is going on

Have you ever looked at a stamp set and thought I know I want to try and create a Christmas card out of it instead of what it was made for well I took a Halloween stamp and a get well stamp set and that's what I've done .... I know it's just so wrong but so funny for Christmas, so if you snort or spit your coffee (or drink of choice )at your screen sorry lol
I've used Dare2bartzy  Stamp set This won't hurt a bit along with a few others 
The bottle is from Doodle Factory Ghoulies and the Christmas Sentiment is a MSE -Holiday Squares
The wood frame stamp I have no idea my sister sent that to me and it worked perfectly with this card 
 Now I know BIG NEEDLE and telling someone to drop there drawers while sending LOVE is just all kinds of wrong but it makes me laugh so why not 
 Close up of the nurse and her needle of Christmas Cheer !!!
I added in a glossy effect to both the needle and her glasses in the needle there are floating around 
this long glitter that I love and it's almost all gone but that's ok it will force me to use all the rest of glitter I own lol 
Now what would happen if I mixed her with a zombie lol oh how the mind just gets Warped somedays or is it all the horror movies I watch lol

Colour Crazy Challenge -  Glitter/Sparkle or Teal/Aqua/Turquoise
