WOYWW 220 don' t you just love colouring

Hi Peeps

Oh every week we all say where has the week gone..... this week is no exception, enough said!

Julia started this weekly journey of madness and mayhem so pop over there and say Hi.... you could even join in. stamping-ground

So here 's my desk for this week...

Dam blogger it is playing up again and wont let me up load any photos....... any help would be appreciated.

I will add the photos from my phone later Ooo get her!...... technical wizard that I am

Anyway I was determined to keep it short this week

On my desk is a set of cards from Hettiecraft I am colouring in for my work colleague's birthdays. I don't often use my promarkers  but thought they worked well with this stamp. I also found this very relaxing, time just disappeared and dinner was late hehe

On the right are a couple of nail varnished I didn't notice until I looked at the photo....a certain 2 year old in my care on Tuesdays asked me to paint her toes, well why not, that's what Grandmas are for isn't it?  so I did her fingers as well......her Mum wont mind ... much!

At the back is a set of 3 lovely black sticky plastic lace tapes ..... bargain from poundland, I may use them for DD3 wedding invites.... if I remember to get some more that is.

well that done I hope you can see the pictures.

I also made a new home card as well.

I hope to visit all who comment and a few new blogs this week, so please leave a comment and your number, so I can find you easily



Up date hey that worked thank goodness

  18. Hi Janet, I'm not much of a techno wizard but I can say that when Blogger started giving me grief on Internet Explorer I changed to Google Chrome and have since had not problems. Other's have mentioned other Mozilla Firefox as an alternative. Love your new home card, the house mouse in a thimble is the perfect image for it. Hope you've had a good day. Elizabeth x #47

  19. Hi Jan, I had similar problems with Blogger last year, and I use Firefox, so tried IE, but that was no better. What did work was switching to using Windows Livewriter. Its meant for blogging & is free from Microsofts website. I still use it occasionally, as I like the feature for inserting pics- you can actually change the size of the image by dragging a corner- no more small, med, lge only options.Love the House Mouse card, and the colour scheme. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #50 xx

  20. card is to to cute! But what I really want to do is jump though the screen and play will all your pens and tee hee.. its been one of those day. :-} Im slowly making my way down the list, it seems to take for ever. Have a good day and bright blessings to you and your Roberta 26

  21. The mouse in the thimble is adorable! Kim #52

  22. Sweet house mouse card. Lots of play things....and do I spy Ben Franklin? Tricky paint little ones little fingers and toes...much patience required. Snoop on! Carole #111

  23. The Diggervcame from Fabricland in Salisbury which was open two weeks's always busy in there, I can't see it shutting down...but you never know!
    Hugs, LLJ xxxx
