What's on your workdesk Wednesday #520 10th Anniversary

Hello creative Friends,

Today's an extra special day over at the stamping ground 
as WOYWW #520 celebrates it's 10th Anniversary. 

Three cheers to JULIA.. Hip hip hooray..
hip hip hooray, hip hip HOORAY!!..

I've only been part of the WOYWW gang for a Year but it's warm 
welcome made me feel like i'd been there from the very start.


Caught this little critter munching on early morning nibbles,
he must have got word there's a party going on.. 😁


My desk has barely changed since last week so no *ATC 
swaps from me but there's an ATC card ready for posting 
to our amazing host Julia later today. 


I think the words sum up this Wednesday gathering perfectly.. 

A door that's always open, safe with a welcoming hug. 
Home is where the heart is and where our story begins...


I'm also sharing this with the lovely ladies over at Tiot 
who are just as welcoming and also celebrating their 
10th Anniversary..! Congratulations lovelies... Lets Party!!

Still busy with life stuff limiting my online time 
but it's a migraine free week so far... YAY!! 

I'll be round to see WoywW asap.
Creative Hugs Tracey xx

Happy 10th WOYWW and TIOT birthday Tracey. You might want to relink with an asterisk next to your name if you are taking part in the ATC PIF, that way the person before you on the list will know that they need to send their ATC to you. Love the message and meaning behind yours. Sarah #4

Beautiful card, good to see you around again. Hope this week will be a better one for you. Hugs, Valerie

Great to read it's a migraine free week so far. That's perfect news. Love that card and ALWAYS love your desk, dear. Happy 10th from # 5.

Neet said...

So happy for you that you are having a migraine free week at last. Long may it stay that way.
That's a beautiful atc, and so appropriate. I could not think of anything that would work and you have summed it up so well. Oh to have a brain!
Have a good week, Hugs, neet 18 xx

Marjut said...

What a great card, I like the colours you have used. Thank you for joining us at TioT.

I no longer take part in WOYWW, Tracey, but Happy Birthday WOYWW! I love the way you all meet up from time to time and met some of your lovely ladies at Port Sunlight, when with Neet.
Love these cute house stamps and have them myself. So easy to use but so much fun. So glad to hear it's a migraine free week, but sorry to hear you're a sufferer...it's NOT nice! Hope you manage to find a trigger, which would help enormously.
Thank you so much for sharing with us at Try it on Tuesday. Always lovely to see your art :-)

Happy anniversary Shaz, so glad we 'meet' almost every Wednesday. I feel blessed to be part of this crafty, creative, nice and supporting online tribe! Glad to hear you had a migraine-free week, yessss!!! Enjoy your day! Hugs and kisses from the Netherlands. Marit #17

Marit said...

Oops... there's "Shaz" name in the comment... I visited her before you and had her name still on my mind... sorry TRACEY!

Hi Tracey. What a celebration you are having today - two groups to share with! That's a lovely card you have made - a great sentiment.
I'm not taking part in the PIF either, as I haven't had time to get my head in gear for very much at all - apart from the laundry, that is.
Take care. God bless.

No problem lovely... I do the same often :)x

Debbie Rock said...

A beautiful card for our dearest Julia ... Happy 10th Anniversary to you on this very special blog hopping day. My sister (a Tracy without the "E") also gets migraines so you have my every sympathy and yes, life sure can get in the way as it carries us along. I have found my WOYWW friends to be invaluable and the support is simply amazing ... how lucky we are! Love to you, from Debbie #25 xXx

My name is Erika. said...

I love the card Tracey. Home is a wonderful place, especially with those little critters visiting. Thanks for linking up to the latest challenge at Try It On Tuesday. Hugs-Erika

Annie said...

My plan is to get round everyone today to wish them a very happy 10th anniversary and to thank you for your friendship and lovely comments over the years.
What a beautiful card.
Hugs,
Annie x #10

Hi Tracey, so good to hear you've been migraine free. Doug gets them on occasion, but they have the strangest trigger- Onions! Anything with even the tiniest bit of onion in set him off. Only real onions though- onion powder or garlic- closely related- don't bother him.
Thats a fab ATC for Julia, amazing.
We get squirrels in our garden too, love to watch them. If they get startled or annoyed by anything, they sit of the fence and wave their tails around like crazy!
Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #7 X

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Hi Tracey, it does feel like we've known you longer than a year, too! I almost posted a photo with a squirrel as well - been feeding them peanuts, but the other day I saw a magpie steal them from the fence post! I don't want to cause a fight between them, so now I'm taking a break hoping that the magpies will forget about the peanuts - they still keep coming back looking for them! That is such a cute ATC card for Julia (psst, I was going to send her one of mine too)! Happy anniversary! zsuzsa #26

Diana Taylor said...

Happy Anniversary Tracey. I love your card and such a great sentiment too. So glad to hear you've been migraine free for a week, long may it continue.
Thank you for your lovely and supportive comments over the past year, here's to the next year of desking!

HI Tracey, ooh fun we do not see squirrels here at our bird feeders, but I have had some mated mallard ducks on the ground under them which cracked me up the other day. ~Stacy #37

Happy 10th anniversary! Thanks for your lovely comments. Maybe we will see you at the crop one day! I hope I have a few ATCs left after the crop so check my blog next week! xx Jo

Felix the Crafty Cat said...

Hi Tracey, the squirrels are so cheeky. My pups, Maisie and Stan can't stand them and as we back onto some woodland there are squirrels and other wild creatures around all the time which just drives them mad. The squirrels don't seem to care and often come down to the pond to drink and dig up the garden too. I do hope things are going okay for you, maybe we could do some sort of swap later in the year when things calm down. Wishing you a lovely woyww and a happy creative week with hugs, Angela x19X

pearshapedcrafting said...

Oooh! That cheeky squirrel - we have a field mouse that hangs onto the nut cage! Your desk and the ATC look great! Hugs, Chrisx 47

Eileen Bergen said...

It's a lovely card, Tracey. Thank you for sharing it with us at TioT. Here's to more migraine-free weeks. Eileen xx

That squirrel sure looked happy raiding the feder, super photos.
Thank you Tracey for sharing the fantastic ATC card with us at Try it on Tuesdays and for joining our !0th Birthday theme. I loved the cute houses and the super sentiments you added.

Glad that you are migraine free so far this week.

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Tracey, Happy WOYWW 10th anniversary! Glad to hear you have had a migraine-free week! Sorry for giving you the run around - my head was not screwed on properly this morning. Love the card, such a very true sentiment. Have a lovely week Heather x #30

craftytrog said...

Happy WOYWW anniversary Tracey! That's a fab ATC, Julia will love it.
Thanks for the birthday wishes xxx

Lovely gorgeous stamp and card, love your sweet design and lovely colours too.xx

Shoshi said...

That's a great 10th anniversary card, Tracey. I'm glad to hear you're free of headaches this week so far. I'm going through a run of them atm and nothing touches them... My usual migraine remedy seems to be unavailable for now. I think it's mostly due to the stress of the horrible PIP application and I'm feeling rubbish generally, at the moment. I'm definitely trying to stick to your excellent advice not to get stressed over it, but it is haaaard... Thank you so much for your support, and for your lovely comment. Yes, the kitties were cuteness overload at 5 weeks, weren't they! Solid great bruisers now, though! Thanks for your birthday wishes for my hubby. His cake was so cool! He is being so supportive while I'm going through my current difficulties, and today he said I ought to be having treats, like when I was going through my chemo, and he said we should just go for that wheelchair and forget the cost for now - sell stuff later lol! So who knows, we may get it sooner than we thought. Thank you for your anniversary wishes for tomorrow. What a lot of ups and downs we've got at the moment! I just hope the ups will win in the end.

Happy 10th anniversary WOYWW,
Shoshi #15

A fantastic card! Thank you for joining our Birthday theme at Try it on Tuesdays!

Julia Dunnit said...

I’m very late Tracey, apologies. So glad that you got to Wednesday without being floored by a migraine...long may that continue. That is SUCH a lovely card and word about WOYWW. I still have your gorgeous houses Christmas card on my desk, I’m a sucker for a house image and what you turn them into is just wonderful for my eyes! How marvellous to be sharing a tenth birthday with such a well known group as TIOT, they are a very inspiring site.
Keep well Miss Tracey, wishing you some therapeutic desk time as soon as you like!

Kyla said...

ooh lovely card and yes squirrels have a loud speaker to announce where food is!

Kelly said...

Happy Anniversary, Tracy! I'm so glad you joined us! Love the squirrel. They do love the bird feeders. I have a family of 5 that eat the bird seed because the crows destroy the squirrel blocks. I guess they all have to eat LOL. Creative Blessings! Kelly #25

What a special ATC that is! I always like making houses! A belated happy anniversary to you! :^) patsy
