The Spooky Mood Continues into WOYWW - 15 September 2010.

Hi to All you lovely Visitors,

Crikey it's only 11.20 am and I'm starting my WOYWW blog post, Haha!  That beats last week by a long way doesn't it and so far this morning Mr Blogger seems to be behaving (sshhhhh don't let him hear me) and is responding to commands without delay or messing about so hopefully I will be able to visit some more lovely blogs from the list on Julia's blog.  I have big apologies to make to the people on last weeks list, especially the ones who managed to visit me because I just couldn't get into comments (except for a tiny few which took me forever) for over a week and it's been driving me bonkers.  Anyway, enough waffle, on with my proper post.

This is the state of my desk at the moment.


Centre stage is the card I made last night (close up below) as an extra for the Elusive Images DT blog hop.  If you scroll down to my previous post you will see what I'm talking about and might want to take a hop round the fun makes my DT buddies have come up with beginning with the Elusive Images DT Blog which has all the links.  There's some stamp candy hidden in them thar blogs but you won't know where until the draw takes place on Friday.  You have till then to leave comments on each blog to be in with a chance of winning some of the spooky stamps.


All those lovely Adirondack inkpads were used on a project I thoroughly enjoyed making because it was for a special friend but she hasn't received it yet so it will have to wait until the weekend before I can show that one.

The final pic I want to share with you is of the contents of the cello bag on the extreme right of the desk photo.  When I went to the Graphicus Crafter's Paradise Retreat a couple of weekends ago I hadn't had time to make any ATCs to swap but several of the lovely crafters there were kind enough to give me RAKs and they are beautiful.  Here they are and thank you to the kind ladies who gave them to me.  I shall treasure them as another reminder of a fabulous weekend shared with lovely people.


Well, that's it from me on this somewhat grey, slightly drizzly Wednesday (kind of matches my All Souls Day card, Lol).  If you want to join in the WOYWW fun pop over to Julia's blog to see what's happening this week.  As always I treasure any comments you have time to leave and I'm soooo keeping my fingers crossed I can do some commenting myself tonigh.

Hugs
Lesley  Xx

I really like the effect not covering the whole of the background has given your card - must remember that technique :)

Hi Lesley

Thanks so much for your lovely comments, Lesley. It's such a pain when Mr Blogger plays up isn't it.
I've had an extremely good nosey at your very industrious desk. Look at all those Adirondaks, I really must not get into buying those as well as the DI!!
Your RAKs are all gorgeous. I've had a closer look and what amazing work. You have some very talented friends.
Your card is great, although I have to say I'm not a lover of Halloween, a party pooper I know!!
Hugs Lisax

Helen said...

Hi Lesley
Just popped by to say hi and hope the sun is shining in your world when I noticed your fantastic card (in which the sun definitely is not shining) It's absolutely amazing from those beautifully coloured fungi to the pristine white moon and leaving the foreground uncoloured gives the whole thing tremendous depth. Fantabulous!

That's one lovely Halloween card. And those ATCs are gorgeous. I like them all. The Adirondack inkpads on your desk are more inkpads than I own. What a lovely collection sitting there so colorful and ready for action. Happy WOYWW.

Sarah said...

Lou and Mel said...

Thanks for letting me know about RAK - what a lovely idea! I will look at the UK Scrappers website a bit harder now that I know what its all about!
