Wednesday, 11 September 2013


Firstly, my thoughts are with everyone affected by 9/11.  I so wish that this world could be a peaceful place for everyone.


Well, I missed last week (family staying and it would have been rude to have disappeared off to my craft room for several hours!) and today I am very late.  I hope that Julia @ Stamping Ground (home of What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday - and where you can find more details) will forgive me?!

I have been very busy in my craft room since Friday when we got the house back to ourselves, made 2 challenge cards and also started a fab online Photoshop course - Photoshop Artistry: Fine-Art Grunge Composition.  Go and have a look, as I am sure that many of you would enjoy this course.

My photo this week shows a lovely Polkadoodles digistamp freebie (received in order to enter their challenge), which I coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens and created this.

I know it is only September, but it really isn't long until the next NEC show - 7-10th November.
I will have pairs of tickets to give away again - and also hoping to attend myself (if I cannot cope with the 5 hour rail journey each way, with 3 changes!).  If you would like to go, then please leave a comment and I will select someone next week.  Further details of the show can be found HERE.

I will try and get around to leave comments for the next few days, but our internet is still fairly slow.  We are due to have a new community wireless system installed soon, and then the speed should be greater and we will have unlimited data.  The joys of living in such a remote area!

Happy WOYWW to everyone.

  2. Hi Ali - That course looks fab - I can't find a price on it - hope you don't mind me asking! I love using photoshop but it takes me forever to find out how to do the things I want to!! Love the cute angel images. I can't believe the NEC is here again. Enjoy your course. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 65
