WOYWW 30th June

Morning to all you WOYWW'ers, another week passes us by, and what a scorcher it has been. I'm afraid this hot weather does not go well with my auburn hair and pale skin.  Does not help on the crafting front either, not much productivity happening on my desk this week.
I have, however, completed my first DT piece for The Stamp Attic, which you can see on my desk (and a close up below), which has been left where I finished it LOL. There may not be much to show on my desk this week, but I have been working hard in the garden so I thought I would show you where I've spent most of the last week.
DT piece for The Stamp Attic.
This is where most of my effort has been focused this week.
Hopefully the weather will cool down a little, just a little and I will get a little more crafting done LOL.  If you would like to join in the fun, pop over to the Stamping Ground to see our chief, Julia and other fab craft spaces.

Thanks for popping by, I'm off to check out all the other craft spaces now.  Have a great Wednesday, Tracy x x

Foil Play said...

Hi again Tracy - just to let you know that the bird is from an Ellison large die - I'm pretty sure I got it in one of their sales, so not sure whether it is still a current design?

craftytrog said...

Stressed Stamper said...

stunning card - but wow love the garden...can I hire you to do mine?

Paula said...

nice work on your desk....a very tidy space indeed

craftimamma said...

What beautiful pieces of artwork you have on your desk Tracy and the DT project is stunning.

Your garden is magnificent. A truly beautiful place but I don't envy you the work keeping it that way. Particularly when it's hot I just can't face gardening. I used to be a copper head (before the colour faded, Lol) and I'm turning into one big freckle just from walking the dog.

Thank you for visiting my decorated box for a second time and I apologise for forgetting to reply to your question on your first visit. The box was a ready made gift box I got from a local wholesaler's for 50p and it measures 14.5 cm x 14.5 cm x 12.5 cm. I liked it so much when I'd finished I went back and bought several more in different sizes.

Hugs
Lesley Xx

vix24 said...

Your DT piece is just gorgeous!

Love your garden too, must be lovely to sit and admire it! Sympathise about the sun though...I'm suffering from the sunburn :(

Paula Gale said...

what a stunning garden Tracy - really puts mine to BIG shame.. at least mine is a bit less maintenance - which makes for a lot more sunbathing LOL!!! (chance would be a fine thing)...

Anyway - that card is absolutely brill... you are so clever and your stuff always looks so professional like you've taken great care over it - mine are always rushed!!!

Well done on your first DT piece - you really deserve the slot!!!
