Happy 4th Anniversary Julia and friends! WOYWW #208

It's a big to do this week, thanks to Julia at Stamping Ground, and I haven't arranged to trade ATC's with anyone yet! I'm just not on the ball here, am I? But I would love to trade with anyone who wants, so just let me know in the comment section if you want to trade. :) Here is my desk this week:
Not much happening, huh? Spellbinders dies and matching stamps out, 2 new packs of adhesive backed K&Company papers, gorgeous!, and miscellaneous other this:
So fancy with the black and white filter, right? ;) Other than that I whipped up these cards one day when I was in an orange, pinky and yellow mood...thanks to those My Minds Eye 3d stickers propped on my desk...
I made the doily on the left card! With a corner punch from MS and some Youtube help, of course. :) It also showcases my first attempt at using the resist technique, with the card on the right showcasing my second attempt. I wish I could take better pictures because they really are darling cards, not because *I* made them but because the colors are so fab together and I had embellishments/ribbon and whatnot that just fit so nicely. Though I am thinking of trimming the twine on the left card a tad...Oh, well. Hope everyone enjoys this special WOYWW hop and please let me know if you would like an ATC by yours truly! :)
A special thanks to all who were concerned about my health and sent well wishes! I had a super week this week and am planning a liver/gallbladder flush for next week so hopefully that'll mean buh-bye stones! :)
And here is the extra special thingy I grabbed to share, for Nicky! And Julia, too, of course! ;)


  1. Great desk today!! I wish I'd sorted out my swap earlier too... am very last minute also. Have a great day. Helen 39

  2. I don't think MME could ever produce anything I don't like. Your cards are cute - the resist looks great. Sticky back K&Co? I did not know of such you use it for die cutting or other, less obvious things?

    1. Well I haven't used it yet, too busy admiring it! lol I do plan to use it for die cutting, especially some of the more intricate dies that are hard to get adhesive onto, without running them through the Xyron of course. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. Hi Queenie, (do forgive my familiar greeting)

    You're next in the Linky list after me so I will be delighted to send you my ATC creation. You can grab my email at Wildcards on my Workdesk and send me your address. I'll get a little package away to you.

    You're pretty good at making cards quickly - I like them, especially the corner punch doily.

    All the very best,
    Ros. #28.

  4. You have a great desk going on today and your cards you have made are really lovely.
    Wishing you and everyone a Very Happy WOYWW today

  5. Beautiful cards and a well stocked craft desk - love it! Hope the gallstones disappear fast! I had my gallbladder removed after many months of agony so you have my complete sympathy. Hope you feel better real soon! Happy WOYWW! Karen 104 x

  6. I love K&Co papers and can never resist them. Then I don't want to cut them up as they're too pretty! Hope the "flush" goes well and you're feeling 100% soon. Happy 4th WOYWW. Pam#36

  7. Hey girl great desk, yep BF says trim the twine and I say trim it too, so chop it LOL. It needs to look like a bow. As for your gall bladder you take it easy and don't stress, stress doesn't help. Say hi to C and hugs to you both.


  8. Lovely cards on your work desk today, that colour combo always makes you feel so happy! Happy 4th WOYWW Anniversary! Annette #2

  11. It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    A nice busy desk this week and some great cards too.

    Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
    Happy Crafting!

  12. For 4 years now i've been dropping by,
    To view your desk and see what I can spy,

    Have a Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary

  14. Hey Deeyl I think I like the cards and when I enlarged the picture I knew I did! School over? YAY! I think we decided to swap last month. I have your address let me know if you need mine. Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary. Have a great week. Vickie #14

  15. Loving those new dies/stamps. A touch of envy I fear, but so glad you get to play, especially with the new K&Co stuff too. Great cards. They would bring sunshine into anyone's lives. Happy WOYWW, hugs Jenny #102

  16. I didn't know the dies had matching stamps. I learn something every time I visit WOYWW. And that's what it is all about, along with the friendship, isn't it?

  21. Hi Queen Lightwell - this is my firs time at your desk - very nice - didn't know we could get adhesive backed papers - fabbo!! Happy 4th WOYWW Birthday... Mxx #137

  22. Hi There, thoroughly enjoyed reading through your post. I've never heard of sticky-backed K&Co, sounds interesting, and your cards are lovely - like the colours and all the pretty details. However, I went white at the mention of a liver/gallbladder flush - so glad I said bye-bye to my gallbladder three years ago :)) Have a lovely weekend. Elizabeth x #155

  23. Hi
    I am trying to get round to all the ATC swaps you asked me to email you my address so we could swap but I can't find your email address.

  24. Is the gallbladder flush the one with Epson salts and apple juice? It really works! What are those things under the yellow containers? Card stock? Wow! Happy WOYWW anniversary! Patsy

  25. I hope the flush works/worked, Deeyll, and you are stone-free! How late am I getting around this week? Sigh! Better late than never though, right?! I spied something VERY interesting on your desk: K&Company "adhesive" packs? WHA?? I'm checking that out. How cool. I love their papers.

    Well, I'd best scoot on. Again, good luck and stay well!! Darnell #34
