WoywW #558

Hello everyone, 

Time to show WoywW #558.

Sorry I couldn't make it over at the stamping ground 
last WoywW but I needed to be else where, i'm sure 
our lovely host Julia will forgive me.. 

There's just some leftovers put to use on my desk this morning 
and a couple of very sad looking ink pads in need of re-inking.

A sympathy card I made over the weekend, not something I 
enjoy making but this hobby art stamp is one I turn to often. 

Still in the process of moving crafty things from one space to 
another I've found so many things I know i'll never use again.. 
Time for another charity bag sort out, i'm sure creatives 
out there will be able to show them some love. 

I'll leave you with the latest pic of little Freya, at 
5 months she's still squeezing into this little space. 
She's not going to be my friend when I collapse that 
adaptable storage down as she's claimed it as her own.

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

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx

Your little Freya is gorgeous, so sweet! The card you made is lovely, too. I need to sort out ink pads, so many which are dry - but not today! Have a fun day, I'm off to IKEA with a friend! Hugs, Valerie

Helen said...

Two beautiful cards Tracey! Sympathy cards are hard to do, but you got that one just right. Helen #2

Neet said...

Do you need the space that the collapsible storage is taking up? I'd be a real softie and leave it up for Freya if she enjoyed it. She is so pretty and those eyes just melt you.
Your poppy card is beautiful, the perfect stamp, and what lovely script you have to go with it. Also like your other card, always a sense of achievement when you have used some recycled bits isn't there.
Here's to a good week for you
Hugs, Neet 9 xx

I simply adore that heart and it's a great sympathy card. Freya is so adorable. How could you take away her place she sits after looking at those soulful eyes (grin).

I'm doing a whistle stop tour of all my favourite desks before I make my next Memory bear [and this one is for a very special little girl to take to her new adoptive home...what lovely jobs eh?].
I'm smiling at your little Freya....our little Milly now has a bigger cage as her bedroom but we take her smaller one with us in our motor home and she really loves it....funny how they like their little spaces isn't it?

Gosh Freya has grown! it's amazing how quick they change from being a puppy to being a teenager. I don't like making sympathy cards much so when I do make them I make a few so if I need one I have them at the ready though hopefully not too often. Beautiful card though. Happy creative woyww, Angela x16x

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Look at those eyes! How can you resist them? She's a lovely little dog and I'm sure will adapt to whatever box you give her - like cats, if I fits, I sits!!
Gorgeous cards, the poppy is perfect for a sympathy card.
Hugs LLJ 3 xx

Hi Tracy, love the cards. The Poppy is perfect for sympathy cards. I'm starting to have a bit of a sort out too- stuff I won't use etc is going in a box to take to the Crop in June.Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #1 X

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh you know how to make a puppy sulk! Wonder if you’ll end up caving in!! Lovely cards again, sorry that you need a sympathy card. I too have a couple of ‘go to’ for this occasion, one goes back to the old PSX days! Hope you get time for moving progress..I cant bear to talk about the clearing out part of it..there’s so much of that to do around here!

Handmade cards are extra special when they're given at difficult times - it's a really lovely design.
I really love ove the photo of Freya, securely wedged into her happy space. I think I'd be like Neet and leave it there for her - right up to the point where she gets so big she either has to be crowbarred out of it or wear it like a snail!

Diana Taylor said...

Your poppy card is beautiful and so perfect for a sympathy card. I love the heart too, perfect for Friday!

Lovely cards, but Freya really stole the show for me today! She is adorable. Happy WOYWW. I hope you have a lovely week. With love and God bless, Caro xx (#19)

Mac Mable said...

Yes leave the collapsable storage up for the adorable Freya!!!!.....LOL x A delicate and pretty sympathy card, perfect for the sad occasion x.

Anne said...

Oh, Freya is gorgeous. You have created a lovely card. Thanks for popping by. Anne x @17

Michele said...

it is a beautiful and comforting card. as is sweet freya! have a great day. xo

Heather M said...

Hi Tracey, as everyone else has said, the stamp on the sympathy card is perfect. They are difficult cards to make. I am drawn to the heart card - what have you used for the heart beat? I would love to make that card for my hubby (for next year probably), as he is the one who did CPR and saved my life - so it strikes a special chord with me. Thanks for stopping by my blog - I'm halfway through reading a candle making book, and then I'll dive in and get some made. I also have my sewing to get back into, as well as card making and scrap-booking, and I have some jewellery making bits in a box somewhere. I really do want to try everything, but time is what I am short of at the moment. All good fun though. Have a lovely week, hugs Heather xx #33

Sarah Brennan said...

Freya is adorable Tracey. Hope you don't have to get rid of her space too soon. Lovely sympathy card. Happy belated WOYWW. Sarah #8

Glenda said...

Lovely cards my friend. Sympathy cards are a necessary fact of life and yours is gorgeous and elegant. Little Freya is so sweet, just look at that face!

Stacy Sheldon said...

Those are such pretty cards Tracey, but oh that face. me, I think I would be tempted to leave it there until you can get a bigger space for her to snuggle into. ~Stacy #29

froebelsternchen said...

It's simply a fabulous sympathy card Tracey and little Freya is just adorable.
Big hugs,

Redanne said...

Both cards are beautiful, it is always a shame to have to make a sympathy card but yours is lovely, that stamp is just perfect.

I have been getting rid of lots of old crafty items too, the charity shop seems to love my little bags of goodies. Freya certainly is growing fast. I think, by the look on her lovely face she might just suspect you are going to take away her hiding spot. Hope you have a good weekend and find some crafty time. Hugs, Anne xxx

Lillianb said...

Thats a lovely card there and love that stamp, Freya looks so cute in the the storage unit,

Lindart said...

What a beautiful Sympathy card! Hugs to Freya, I'm sure she will find a new spot to claim as her own! Thanks for your visit to mine, Lindart #29

Dorthe said...

She almost looks as if , she knows, the day , when she has to leave, will come, Tracey- so sweet.
And dear friend, your cards are beautiful, both - lovely images and colors- but not easy , to make such cards. Big hugs from Dorthe xx
