WOYWW #250

Happy WOYWW Everyone! That is short for “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday”, the brilliant blog hop initiated by our lovely hostess, Julia at The Stamping Ground….and you can see all the deets there.

A real quick post this week…I realized my Aunt’s Birthday is next Monday; and she’s a bit, emmm, strange; if her card comes after the day, she won’t open them.  Feels if it’s not important enough for her family and friends to get things on time, then it’s not important enough to look at…so no taking the chance of a delay in delivery!
I saw this technique on the eclecticPaperie blog, using stencils (my new best friends) distress inks and water… looked so simple. Yeah, good thing I've given myself a few days leeway; I wasn't thrilled how it came out.. although it looks better in the photo than it did last night.  I’ll research it again on my lunch hour and give it another go tonight. 

So, there it is…now go stop by Julia’s and hop around the world to other great desks! Happy Crafting everyone.


  1. People are funny, aren't they? It's just as well she's not my aunt because I'm not always prompt with sending cards...oops!
    The stencilly patterns look ok to me but then we are our own worst critics sometimes!
    And I would love to see the ancient landscape around your day.... it's on my bucket list!
    Hugs, LLJ 39 xx

  2. Hi Kim, had a chuckle about your aunt, think I know some oldies with similar ideas. Anyway your stenciling is at a start, I'm no good at it but your's is looking fresh and pretty to me - keep going Cheers and have a great week Robyno#38

  3. They make those stencils look so easy. I always need a bath after.

  4. I kind of discovered stencils too... Can't wait to get more. thanks for sharing!!

  5. Err! Not sure what it is supposed to look like, but it looks kinda cute as it is. I have to say I am surprised your colours look so good looking at the state of your foam pads! Good grief girl!

  6. Love how the background is coming out, its funny how things can look better when viewed with fresh eyes the next day. Smiled at your aunt- I think we all have someone like that in our lives. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #38 xxx
