OK, while Vikki and Susie slug it out over the rules of WOYWW, I've made a card to fit their challenge! So suddenly there's challenges that aren't challenging? No, more that the very word 'challenge' makes the boundaries of the old comfort zone start to tighten and twitch and well, you just have to get over it don't you. OK, me. So, points for trying then! So this challenge, at Die Cut Dreams is 'coffee and cream' so you see why I entered, huh! Even managed to put a die cut on it too. Amazing. The stamps are Inkadinkado (owl) and the text from River City Rubber Works. The dotty paper is flocked stuff from Papermania. I'm very bad at remembering to credit images for which I apologise - I just get carried away! (The other image I've been asked about is a Dolly Mama by Penny Black which is on an post earlier this week.)
I want to have a little brag now. I know it's incredibly out of character, so do allow me a couple of lines. I received a lovely gift from Charlie in yesterday's post, loads of rarely seen here embellishments. Rarely seen here because Charlie (and her blog) are Danish. It was a strenuous job, winning this lot: I had to offer comments to her bi-lingual craft posts and then be picked in a draw. Now that's a challenge. Note that it's Charlie who is bi-lingual, not Julia. The hoard includes a gorgeous brass hanging decoration which of course, will be on my christmas tree next year; all my ornaments have a story and this one is possibly more interesting than most. How the interweb unites us. Gotta love that, man. Big thanks Charlie, I think you're terribly clever and a great crafter and I'd say that without my arms full of gifted stash!
Oh and the rules of WOYWW - there are none, of course. But if you want to go to Vikki's, then yep, Susie, pick me up on the way!

Oh lucky you. I love crafting bits from other countries. They are always able to get different stuff to us...but I guess that works in reverse too :-) Enjoy playing with it all.

Lovely stuff! You're so prolific though. I'm a Jill of all trades, and do a bit of lots of stuff. Crochet is just my bag at the moment :)

I love polka dotty paper - and blue is my favourite colour - so love love love it...

Thanks for leaving your comment on my blog by the way, as you can imagine - i'm incredibly 'scared' at the moment and every ache and pain seems to be exagerated - and not sleeping. Blogging and discovering great crafters in blog land is being a great saviour for me.

Carry on the good work

Thanks for your good wishes on my elevation to DTdom once more.
Did you spot the post where I pointed out what the black thing on my desk was?
I love the sentiment on this card, I must write it down for future use, it's brilliant!

SO glad you liked what I found Julie and thanks for visiting and your frequent comments. Great minds think alike and I feel we are kindered spirits (when it comes to being SILLY...) love that. I always enjoy when people visit my blog from different countries - makes blogging in two languages worthwhile. So please come - the more the merrier...Well done for winning and have fun. Still not ready to show you what's on my desk as my craftroom is a disaster area since xmas (ask my DH and he will say it ALWAYS is).
