A very happy WOYWW to everyone, it’s Wednesday again that day when we get to nosey look at everyone’s creative crafty workdesks and spaces around the globe. Hop over to the Stamping Ground, Julia the host will make you most welcome and there’s some fab sites you will not want to miss visiting. 
I have been busy with work and haven’t been around much the last few weeks, sorry that I also haven’t been visiting my regular favourite blogs recently either...I will be back to normal soon (I hope) I am still managing to make the odd car here and there and have made a few special birthday cards which I will post soon and the simple baby card below. 
latest card 
My desk isn’t too exciting this week as you can see in the pics taken yesterday before work there’s some magazine freebies to put away and a pile of scrap papers to sort. I had planned to do more scrapbooking this far it hasnt gone to plan and theres a pile of photos that I plan to start far I have finshed one scrap page in two years!... so progress is slow to say the least! I’ve also been doing some colouring with the cute Tatty Twinkle stamps,I don’t have any particular card in mind but I do enjoy colouring them and its something I can dip in and out of when I don't have much time. I have just finished and sent a baby card for one of my hubbys work colleagues, I kept the designs simple and decided to send the cute stork one above so I now I also have a spare card for the next baby girl that arrives(hiding in pile of scraps on desk), as usual I couldn’t resist using a button or two!

 waiting for action !

bits 'n' bobs too sort  and put away

I’m off too work soon and will be visiting when I get back later today, as usual at the minute it may take me a few days to come visit everyone but I will. I hope you have a good week ahead and are having lots of crafty fun.I will return the visit very soon and appreciate you popping in...crafty hugs Andrea X

Topper card and NBUS Challenge

Hi another quick post today as bonus I am working later today than planned so had the morning to have  a little play and as I get up usually at silly o'clock I  made the most of it and its just in time for the NBUSchallenge. It’s another quick and easy card made using a cute topper which is from another magazine freebie set bought recently. The bright colourful papers including the happy days sentiment (cut out from same paper pack ) I think where from a  Kaisercraft Confetti freebie set, and the background banners paper was an old set sorry I don’t know what it is.  I couldn’t resist this sweet little mouse after the enjoyment I got making  my last card when I used a topper for the first time.
"Sending Smiles "

Close up 

A great quick and easy card using lots of unused stuff which fits perfectly with Darnell’s NBUS challenge this ends tomorrow noon (PTD)… Go check it out as its fab and it’s a great site to…You will want to be a follower and go back for more fun. The flower was die cut from my new Heartfelt Creations Ariana blooms die, stamps and paper pack set which has been sitting on my desk waiting to be used for a couple of weeks ...I have been itching to try out since I bought I just had to add one to my card... I love the stamens and couldn’t resist adding some buttons too…you can never have too many I say!

I hope you have a good week and hope to be back real soon. Crafty hugs and thanks for visiting Andrea x
