WoywW 602

 Is it Wednesday again already..? 

WoywW time 


No desk shot sharing from me today mines doubled up as 
a gift wrapping station this week, so here's a handful of 
Christmas cards, a small selection of 2020 makes..


Lot's of happy mail opened this week.. thought i'd share 
some extra special ones from my blogging buddies..

Beautiful glittery bauble creations from 
Jo (Lets Art Journal) and Angela (aka Felix the Cat)


Anne know's I have a soft spot for these Skates 
she brings them out every year and works her 
creative magic with them every time sigh 😊


and last but not least just look at this 
vintage wrapped beauty from dearest Dorthe


and the inside full of winter wishes, what a work of art.. 


how truly blessed am I... 
ALL take pride of place on the fireside mantel. 

Thank YOU lovely blog buddies xx 


Stay safe & creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

OMG those skates! My daughter is very much missing her disability skating group this year - her very last event was an international Synchro skating competition just as covid was beginning to make headlines. Luckily no outbreaks in our group but it could have gone another way. I love that card, and in fact ALL the cards. Just stunning. And the little fabric book is a wonder.


Happy too close to Christmas WOYWW!

Let's Art Journal said...

So many amazing cards! Loving all the beautiful festive foliage designs that you created - stunning 😀. Of course I'm even more delighted to have one of these cards sitting on my mantle piece, it is truly a work of art - thank you so very much! Thanks also for the shout out, I'm glad that you like your sparkly card, my sister kindly gifted me the bauble die so I thought I'd put it to good use ...lol ❤️. Hope you have better weather where you are today, it's grey and raining here but that means more time in my craft room - yay 😉. Happy and creative wishes! Hugs, Jo x

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Wow, amazing cards made and received! All look fantastic and just perfect! Yours look so great all in a bunch - they're all slightly different but you can tell they belong in the same set. They could be professionally printed and sold in shops! I would buy them - most definitely! That little fabric journal is adorable as well. Happy wrapping! xx zsuzsa #27

Diana Taylor said...

Wow, your cards are stunning, and I love the ones you received too. What a gorgeous gift from Dorthe, she really is one talented lady.
I hope you don't mind me asking but what make are the two sentiments stamps that aren't Tim Holtz - I've been looking for a wide sentiment that goes right across the card and mine are all too short or are two rows deep, which I also don't want -I have the large swirly Tim ones but I find them difficult to place on a card so I rarely use them - however, you've done a beautiful job with them and I feel inspired to get them out and give them another go - although it's a bit late for this year now!
I hope you have a great week,
Diana xx #21
