AVJ #6 All About Him

I'm sure I don't know where the time is going, It seemed like a day or so ago I was checking the Vintage Journey theme, and low and behold i've just gone back to double check when it closes and i've only got a day left to join in!!
Who is stealing my days!! Come on, own up!
So I grabbed a load of Timmy stash and quickly knocked up this little beauty.

I took the opportunity to get a fathers day card made as i'm sure that will creep up on me if i'm not careful.

I used Tims papers, alpha stamps and dies, I stamped the Dad in versamark and used distress embossing powder, but think I rubbed too hard as alot of the powder came off, so I inked over it, the versamark gave it a sort of grunged up watermark look, so to make it pop I cut the letters out.
1 down, 1 to go..
Right I can't stop as it's my 1st Hobbycraft Induction day tomorrow and I need to get myself ready and get in an early night!!

Thanks in advance for your visit xo

WOYWW The 5th Anniversary Edition

Hello intrepid desk hoppers
Wishing you all a very Happy 5th WOYWW anniversary.

{thank you for the above Nikki}
I've been absent for a little while but have been in and out of the desk hop for the past 5 years so I had to join in today of all days.
My desk looks like this:

All very tidy as I have recently had a sort out and re-shuffle.
On my desk you can see an array of lovely art collected at Saturdays WOYWW Crop

It was my very first time attending, and I had a blast although I regret not getting around to speak to everyone, I was absorbed in trying to make some ATC's to give out!

These are a couple that I had spare, ready for today's swap, 1 will go to the person next on the woyww blog  list and 1 to someone who leaves me a comment today, I will randomly pick someone at the end of the day.

Happy Hopping

So I was lucky enough to get to spend last Saturday at the WOYWW crop in Wiltshire.
I was a brave girl and drove all by myself {well with the help of mr satnav} It was my very first long journey since passing my test as i'm a bit of a nervous driver but it was all good, even though the weather was total pants I made it in one piece.

This was everyone getting settled in and listening to Julia's welcome speech.

 As you can see, Giggles from the start!

I finally got to meet Zoe who i've know online for ages but never met in person, and she's lovely.

I also got to catch up with Helen

And Diane, both of whom i've meet before, but it's always a pleasure.

There is me deep in concentration {look at that frown}.... making sure I was colouring within the lines lol

It was also lovely to finally meet the lovely Jan, who provided us with a wonderful lunch

And last but not least the wonderful Julia, The reason we were all together. Who knew when it it started just how big and long standing the ritual desk hop would be!
Long may it continue xo

And here is a great shot of everyone together.
It was lovely to meet those of you who I managed to chat with, And my apologies to those I didn't make it round too.. maybe next time!

Till next time
Stay Inky
