WOYWW Cards & Stuff !

Late to the world of  WOYWW this week due to busy evenings !

Just a few bits & bobs of crafting happening on my desk this week ..

I made this card for Much Beloved's birthday last week but couldn't show you in case he saw it on here !

I used the Cardwork Card papers I bought at Ally Pally and added ribbons and metal charms and was quite pleased with how it turned out ! 
Something I didn't find at Ally Pally were the new Distress Inks - they seem to be like hen's teeth with all the on-line suppliers being out of stock but I have managed to track these two colours down so far !

Much Beloved's nephew is heading down to New Zealand next month to train as a pilot - so he designed a card & I helped him put it together. 

A lot of my time this weekend was spent in the garden - enjoying the spring flowers !

 Have a great crafty week !

  1. Better late than never, and I'm only just visiting anyway... the spring flowers are gorgeous, I took hundreds at Kew last Saturday! Your new purchases look great and so does OH's card. Helen #5

  2. Oooh! You tracked down that elusive pistachio color--good for you. Love the stash on your desk. It looks very inviting to come play. Thanks for sharing all the lovely flower photos too! Thanks for the visit earlier. My stash might look neat but darned if I can find things lately. Judy #58

  3. Your card is lovely and those mini Distress inks are so cute. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Fun cards, and gorgeous flowers, all we have is snowdrops gradually turning to scilla... Tulips will be a month away, I guess :) happy belated woyww!

    Ps thanks for your visit, actually the niche project is posted before the woyww, so it's there to see if you like!

  12. great looking desk so busy and colorful. I haven't been able to find the new colors around here either. I got a set of the first month and none since. Someone said that the big online retailers are getting them first cause they sell so much of Tim HOltz stuff he makes sure they get them....grrrr...I like to shop local or smaller venues. Thanks for visiting my desk earlier. Vickie

  13. Hi Ali, love the card. I've been getting the new DI colours too- seems I NEED to have the full set, lol. You can preorder them over at Country View Crafts, if you are daft, like me, and want them regardless of what the colour is going to be. Love the plants in your garden, so striking.Running late this week, it seems to have gotten away from me somehow! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xxx
