Isn't that just amazing, the 100th woyww. Our intrepid leader, Julia, must be thrilled to bits with workdesk Wednesday's success. I know I am because it gives me the opportunity to travel the world every week and sneak into other folk's craft rooms to have a good old peek around their goodies. Thank you Julia for thinking up this wonderful adventure and long may it continue.
However, my desk is somewhat boring again this week.
I decided to make another ATC with one of the backgrounds in my 'ever growing' stash, so down came the sticky gems box.
A bit of stamping over the already lush base, a heaped bundle of different flowers, a brad, a peel off butterfly stuck on acetate and cut out plus a row of flower ribbon - job done.
Not had any crafting time for ages now. We are having our outside walls insulation rendered. The lads began yesterday and this is the result this morning.

Looks like we have the plague with all the black spots. They are due back any time now to continue with the next step but hopefully should be finished by the end of the week. Trouble is, I think we may get some sharp showers tomorrow - oops!
I hope to pop over to yours this week, but may not get the chance to leave a comment. Please bear with me during this hectic time.

what a pretty ATC - and I think your dry line insulated wall is crying out for some little diamante bits in those black dots, just think how happy the workmen will be to see you have "made over" their work! LOL Happy 100 WOYWW Caroline x

P.S. I don't mind in the least about "pinching" the idea!!! One can't expect to post something on the net and not see it somewhere else!!! I'm not precious about it. :)

Pretty ATC, indeed. Hope your wall gets sorted before the rain comes.

Hey Joanne, I think you may actually have a bigger gems box than me...although your skill at using them is far greater than mine. Good luck with the insulation - perhaps you should teach the boys about how to do really good random dots!!

Beautiful ATC! I love making the little cards! Having the house reinsulated is such a good idea but such a pain while getting it done. Sorry I am late getting around this week but I haven't been feeling well this week! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #36
