WOYWW - Loving my holiday crafting time!

Good morning to all the wonderful people from WOYWW and all other visitors from everywhere. Firstly I would like to say thank you for all the wonderful Birthday wishes. I had possibly the best birthday, ever! DH gave me a Silhouette Cameo and then, when we got it home and hooked up he decided the old computer was just too old and promptly went out to buy me a new computer too! Am I lucky or what? The girls at school spoilt me with good wishes and a LOT of chocolate. My DS sent me the most wonderful flowers to school and when I got home, there was flowers from DD1 and 2 too! DD3 came home on Sunday from the National water polo tournament with the promised National colours (she left me a card before she went, telling me that she hopes to bring me home National colours) I am so very proud of her for keeping at it for 12 years and never giving up on her dream.
OK, now I am getting to the desk. As you can see, I have had a bit of a creative frenzie. It looks like a bomb went off in there. LOL I am so happy to be on holiday and to have time to craft, I am definately not stopping to clean untill it becomes life threatening. 
Some of the results of the frenzie. Some 3inch cards made from scraps of left over Graphics 45 Secret Garden paperpack.
I used two of the Spellbinders die cuts to make the mats, quite like how they turned out.
And of course, I had to play with my Silhouette! I have made paper dolls for the grandies and a lot of cards (30 is a lot, isn't it?) All the toppers on these cards were printed and then cut out with that clever toy, LOVE, love, love it!



All papers and ribbons are from my stash.
Have a great week everybody, I am off to play and I promise solemly that I will visit this week, because I am on holiday, so I have time.

  1. Happy WOYWW and belated Happy Birthday. Wow, your DH is amazing. I bought myself a Cameo in November and love it too. There is so much to learn and explore. (My hubby did buy me a new computer for Xmas, so I can't complain!) All of your cards are gorgeous. Ali x #25

Enjoy your Cameo, I don't have one, but it is on my wish list, but I am not computer savy, so I have been holding off. I think your cards are lovely, that Violet one is my favorite.Love the vintage feel. Winnie#76
