Messy and exhausted WOYWW

Well, it is Wednesday again so it is time to show you my desk in all its glorious messiness as part of WOYWW.  I have to confess that I haven’t got any further with the ATCs, and have only managed to make one card since last time.  The reason being that I took Alex to beaver scout camp last weekend (parents have to stay over with the boys), and that is also the excuse for the mess on my desk, as everything just got piled up while I tried to deal with camp lists etc.
Here is the card I made for my mother, from a background made with dylusion inks and water and stencils, and then drawing round the edge of a stencil and colouring in sections. I can’t decide what I think of the end result, but it was fun to do something completely different.
I thought I would finish with this photo of Alex and me in the tent at Beaver Scout Camp early on Sunday morning, after a night of next to no sleep (heavy rain drumming on the tent roof all night, Mummy is it 8 o’clock yet (at 2am), Mummy I need the loo (at 4.30am), and Mummy I can’t sleep any more (at 5.45am)) – despite the lack of sleep we had a wonderful time.
I now have a list of 9 people who wish to swap ATCs with me.  Please can you (and anyone else who would like to) email me your address (my email is carostaton (at) gmail dot com).
Have a great week everyone.

Love the camping selfie! Alex looks far too chipper for someone who's had no sleep :-)
The card is bright and cheerful, love it!
Hugs, LLJ 22 xx

Loving the card you made for your mum. You don't need to apologise for a messy desk I think it would be strange to see a desk that is really tidy lol!
I spy a monkey watching over your progress, they get everywhere!
Happy crafting, Angela x 50

I'm late visiting here and Friday Smiles. I'm just trying hard to catch up after a very busy week.

You look exhausted in the photo. I can only imagine how you fared the entire weekend.

On a positive note, that is a beautiful card. The background is so colorful and cheery. Happy very belated WOYWW from #1.
