Wednesday 4 May 2022


 Hello and welcome back to my blog.  Sorry that life got in the way last week and I was unable to join in with the wonderful blog hop that is What's on your workdesk Wednesday hosted by the lovely Julia, but I am back today!

Here is my desk as it was yesterday early evening. It is slightly chaotic as I was busy making ATCs for the up coming 13th anniversary of WOYWW.  You can see stamps, ink pads, pens, etc, but I have hidden the actual cards!  If anyone would like to do an additional swap with me please let me know in the comments.

In addition to the ATCs I made a birthday card for my swimming companion appropriately featuring a mermaid. Confession time, I can't remember where the stamp came from.

I have also finally finished my 30 day challenge (about 2 months late) with these collages.

Other than that, life continues much the same as ever with work, preaching in church, swimming, taking Alex and his mates go-karting as his birthday treat, and trying to persuade him to join me in walking through the beautiful countryside we have round here!

I will leave you with this photo of Alex terrorising me in the kitchen - he wore this to walk to a friend's house surprising a lot of people along the way!  Take care and stay safe everyone, don't forget to let me know if you want to swap an ATC with me.
With love & God Bless,

The dinosaur pic made me hoot! It’s the bobbly way they move when walking…simple pleasures eh?! I’m super impressed that you’re ATC making, inspiration has definitely not struck me yet. But when it does, I’d very much like to swap with you!

Alex should be careful, I hear dinosaur burgers are quite tasty.
Lovely photos of where you go and with Alex
Equally lovely collages, I do like the one reading. Sorry, cannot help with the mermaid, I am sure someone will spot her and know where she came from but she is rather lovely and it is a beautiful card. Blessings Neet xx 2

Hi Caro, before I forget, I would love to swap ATCs with you. I absolutely love the dinosaur suit, I bet that was a great laugh seeing Alex walking around in that. I am just a bit confused why he's wearing it? Wishing you a very happy and creative woyww, Angela x11x

Helen said...

I haven't even thought about atcs for the swap yet - at this rate it will be just one for my partner! there is certainly beautiful scenery near you. Helen #1

Hi Caro, thanks for the tips from your GP friend. I’ve sent a query about the Cetirizine to my GP to check for compatibility with my other meds. I love your mermaid card and the dinosaur was awesome!
Take care

Goodness, Caro, a dinosaur in the kitchen is scary! I bet Alex did get some interesting reactions from people when he went out in that costume. Love your mermaid card and the collages. It took me as long to finish my December album too - sometimes life gets in the way. Have a lovely week. Hugs, Elizabeth x#9

Happy Belated WOYWW. Anyone in a dino costume makes me chuckle. I would love to swap an ATC with you. All I need to do now is find my missing crafty mojo! I recognise that mermaid image, but obviously I can’t remember where from. Ali x. #16

Lovely photos of you both and the T Rex had me giggling - well done Alex!! I love your challenge collages - I don't know how you find the time and the creativity. I am a bit late getting round to my WOYWW desks. Happy to swap ATCs when the time comes. xx Jo
