SPECIAL,FOLD,AND WOYWW & some news

Morning peeps,first I would just like to welcome Janet to my wee blog bless you hun for adding to my followers,,list. Next my news,I have been choosen,to be one of the GD on the stampin bazarr blog, That lady does some amazing images,so super cute,and unusuall too so if you are looking for something that bit different,pop over HERE to take a look.
My next piece of news which I am totally chuffed about my daughter,came home from work,the other night,and she had her tea she was on the computer whilst I was busy crafting,and she got up and said oh mum you better have this. OMG is was a ticket,to the stamp & scrapbooking show in London,Alexandra palace on the 26th September.  How cool is that,oh bless her heart,she is coming too and she is not into crafting at all clothes,shoes,thats Lisa.  So yeah am really chuffed about that.
Okay enough of me waffling on over at the PIXIE COTTAGE this week once again its a brilliant sketch,with the choice to do special fold,this can be gate fold,easel card,as long as it has some kind of fold,its fine.
I have choosen,Hannah,again sorry,Michelle,I will use my new stamps you sent me next week,he he,
I have made a joy fold card coloured in distress inks.
Inks, Mustard seed brocken china,tea dye,crushed olive,tattered rose. Lace,wild orchid,along with the flowers,
Challenges,
wildorchidchallenge one for the girls
papertake weekly something old something new,borrowed,blue Blue,water,new my lace,old ribbon.

Now time for Julia's WOYWW oh love this,and its such great fun too,as you get too see all the amazing things everyone has plus great storage idea's and Julia always gives,us a chuckle or has  a great story to tell love reading,what she has to say.  So if you want to know what I am on about pop over to Julia's blog HERE
Now for once my desk is a bit of a mess,as not been too great with this pain,so not been tidying up every night,which is not like me so here are the pictures, First is an easel atc I made,they are not fragments,around her face they are tiny round circles,which I cut from a plastic,packet I had come with some things in,then I added some alchol inks to them then attached with some sepia glossy accents.

The sewing table I bought at a car boot sale last weekend I do not sew but thought it was great for storage,and also,the wire,containers,at the end of my desk I also got those from car boot,perfect for my pro markers,and the stamps are all from Michelle at the Pixie cottage my DT package oh lovely. Oh sorry about Alice she is always with me somewere having a nosey he he. Will get around again so as many as I can,got the H to do first,oh why does that have to be done,rrrrrrr and then some things to get finished,which are on my desk just waiting to be attached to cards.

Congrats on the ticket. Is that what they call Ally Pally? I've read several people from WOYWW are going. It would be fun for all of you to get together, especially if you have never met.

Lovely cards you showed and congrats on becoming a DT. That sewing box you got looks like it holds a LOT. Even if it's not for sewing, and it will be nice and portable, too. Happy WOYWW.

Cheryl said...

Congrats on your GDT position.Love your beautiful card and fab storage as well!!!

Paula Gale said...

wow Cheryl - so much to talk about in your post - where to start???

Firstly - wow on the ticket from your generous and lovely daughter - how special is that. secondly, well done on the GTD spot - you deserve it clearly... then thirdly - what a find at a car boot sale on that sewing box... my grandma (I think) once gave me a sewing box on legs that opened with two 'doors' at the top, but didnt fold out like yours... it was quite old and lined inside - I don't know what happened to it - its either in the loft or garage (fingers crossed)!!!

Your cards are so beautifully 'painted' with the DI's - it looks like youve watercoloured - well done. such a professional finish.

Hope you are well.

Paula x x x

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Wow Cheryl - you are always so busy - wish I had half your energy and drive! Huge congrats. on your new GDT spot, and how lovely of your daughter to buy those tickets - bless her little cotton socks! As for your card and easel ATC - what can I say, except "Totally Awesome"!!
Loving the workspace, and what a great car-boot find - a fab sewing box for storing your crafty bits. Great stuff Cheryl! Hugs and love, Sylvia xxxxxx
