WoywW #556

Happy Wednesday everyone, 

Time for a mid week meet up with creative friends as I share 
what's on my work desk this Wednesday over @ the Stamping Ground 
courtesy of Julia our host it's WoywW #556

Today's desk I confess is yesterday's as I found a bag 
full of markers and decided to see if any were salvageable. 
Testing on an image stamped from a Stamps by Me set 
most of those markers were still pretty juicy.. Hurrah!!

If any one is a Create & Craft Club Member that stamp set is 
January's Club Gift & at £2.99 it's worth every penny I think.

Here's one of the cards I managed to finish using those markers.
I really like how the sentiment hides amongst the flora...

I'm sharing this one with the lovely ladies over @ Try it on Tuesday 

Busy Wednesday for me as I make the most of a free day. 
Time to move more of my stash into my Daughter vacant room. 

I'm sure Freya will keep me company 😁

Thank you for your kind words last week regarding the migraines 
they've been a lot less this week, not sure if it's the new glasses 
or the limited online time but the day on day off seems to be working. 

Look forward to seeing what's on your work desks. 

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx

Great card and migraines are not fun at all, maybe the too much computer time as I find this an issue too... take care and puppy love helps.xxxxx

Beautiful art card, wonderful colours. Glad to hear Freya is keeping you company. And good that the migraine is better, hope it keeps that way. Hugs, Valerie

Glad to hear the migraines have eased off Tracey. Love that card, the colouring is spectacular. Good that most of those pens still work well too. Good luck with the organising and moving stuff. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #2

I have loads of pens and markers that I am sure are dried up... really must test them and throw away the duds... Great flowers! Happy WOYWW Helen #1

I think too much computer time does it for me too :( how is puppy training coming along? I am finding it rather cold out in the garden waiting for my little to go. Happy WOYWW Angela #8

Hi Tracey, how cool the markers still work! Too often they dry out,really annoying. Love the card and the stamp set. Happy to hear the migraines are better, Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #3 X

Neet said...

Best news is that the migraines are better - not so good is limited computer time. But if it helps!
Love the photo of Freya with her little paw up on the netting, she looks so comfortable and sleeping like a baby.
The finished card looks really good but I think a lot of it is down to yur expert colouring - you have made such a lovely job of it and the colours chosen work so well.
Here's to a good week for you, may the migraines stop altogether and may you get lots of time for the enjoyable things in your life.
Hugs, Neet 5 xx

That's great that your migraines have eased off a bit - whatever the cause, long may that continue. The colours are still vibrant aren't they? The card is really lovely. Hope you have a good time sorting your stuff out today, Freya looks like she can't be bothered at the moment, lol!!
Hugs LLJ 11 xx

Beautifully coloured, Tracey - as ever with you! It's a nice, joyful stamp and the words are wonderful. I often "hide" words like that, lol...but they do look good. Sorry to hear about the migraines - yuk! I remember the days of hiding beneath my bed covers, blocking out light and waiting for it to ease...horrible. You have my sympathy.
How lovely that you're getting a new craft room, though - and even better that you have a friend to share it with! I think I'm ready for a new doggy friend - after 20+ years of mourning my baby boy ;-) Hope it's so exciting to be moving into the room that moving stuff is a real pleasure.
Thanks for sharing with Try it on Tuesday.

Hi Tracey, I've missed a few weeks so will have to catch up. Your colouring is beautiful with those markers - it added a lot of dimension. I've never learned how to colour like that. I would have to go with the colourful grunge on that challenge as I still struggle with white space! Freya is just adorable and you got her at the right time to make up for your daughter's absence. I hope she's enjoying her new life in Sweden and is able to come home once in a while to visit. Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #18

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh glad to hear you might have hit in something to lessen the in day off, week off week on...whatever it takes girly. Staggered by your ‘just trying it out’ colouring, you make that stamp set look absolutely gorgeous. Hope you can ‘settle’ into your daughter’s less used space really well, am sure Freya will have no trouble getting comfortable in a different space every other day!!

Redanne said...

You are certainly right about the stamp, it is beautiful, only enhanced by your wonderful colouring Tracey. I am so glad that the migraines are less this week and I hope the glasses do the job for you longer term. Freya is such a sweetie and must be wonderful company for you! Hugs, Anne xx

Caro said...

Freya is adorable. I bet she will become the studio pup. And I love how you used white space and made this gorgeous card. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Try It On Tuesday. Hugs-Erika

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Tracey, ooh that is good to hear that this week has been better. ( I was always told to drink more water and less coffee) there used to be days when all I drank was coffee and that helps them be easier to get through too I think that being hydrated part. I am sure the new glasses are helping too. :) oh wow that card is gorgeous, I am totally impressed with your marker skills. ~Stacy #29
