WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

WOYWW #342

No workdesk to share as I have cleared everything away in readiness for Christmas but do admit to having serious crafting-withdrawal symptoms!  

Can share, courtesy of the beautiful Julia at The Stamping Ground- host and creator of our special WOYWW times, my cards for this year and a couple of canvasses that were sent and opened early!!!!!

This was the one sent to family & close friends.

Card for our first Great-Nephew, the delightful Henry ... will be nine months old on Christmas Day!

  Card for my husband.

Our main cards for this year and the reason my husband had to Hoover me!  
The moon is mica powder which wafted everywhere and the *S*N*O*W* is Glamour Dust ... need I say more!?!?!?

Two canvasses ... the same, but different!  Photo' taken at the WOYWW Crop 2 BPD at the end of October.  Two of the bestest friends you could ever imagine and I LOVE what they share.
I am in awe of what they give to everyone else and am proud and honoured to call them my friends.

The lady in the photo' is the wonderful Sazz (Sally-Ann Moore) who runs the Clarity East Midlands crafting group in Nottingham.  On her recent wedding day and I was lucky enough to get her as my Secret Santa at the group meet earlier this month.  Alas, me being Santa was not a secret but nobody seemed to mind too much.

These two are now in Australia and were opened on arrival rather than being put under the tree for Christmas morning!!!!!  Very naughty!!!!!

The one above had very much more purple on it than shows here ... it was not nearly as black as it seems! 
One of the best wedding photo's I have ever seen!

Might have to get a little crafting in during the holidays but today need to concentrate on baking mince pies and starting the chocolate mousse - last few cards to hang and then Christmas movies, time to stop and catch my breath and, well, to just chill!

Thanks to each and every one of you for your kindness, support & friendship yet again this year and wishing you nothing but peace & joy, health & happiness and that you all have a
