Happy WOYWW and today is my BD (28th) along with Kay too HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAY!!!
So I've finished my Windows and had some time to make it into the craft room to use PAPER which is nice change. There are four which are allowing the cement to get good and dry then I'll patina them and clean them up really well when they go up. So Here is my Space this week  doing a little colouring up and drinking a mocha coffee which I love to do !!
New Set of 4 Windows to be installed 
Last set of windows all installed these are against thermal Windows which are great
get the look and the comfort of staying warm too.

anywhere in the world. Might be new might be old stamps and stash I'm no longer using but have a good life left and to be loved by another !!! Let me know if you want to be included and if you can share it on your sidebar that would be great too

I wish I had more time but alas I did manage 4 really simple cards for winter and they are all BOYZ so Bonus seeing they are always so hard to make I fine. Adding in Sparkle to a boys card can be challenging unless you have Micro Bling then it just works at least in my books it does. 
I love these Bobble head guys the set also has girls and I'm working on those later but for now here they are all matching up and super quick and easy and flat to mail !!

talk about getting addicted to looking at the moment. I'm just making not sending much of anything
usually just when we are in front of the tv I'm colouring in the light of the tv so it's dark lol it's an interesting thing to do  get some really interesting combo's for sure.
 The right in the folder are some I've been working on eventually to trade and there's a new digi I hope to make soon on the paper pad along with my newest atc's top 3 from the facebook group and the other two below 
left from Bishopmate and our lovely Julia with a suprise atc she sent me.

Christmas Moose

This Moose just makes me smile when I look at him and he's from Joy Clair Stamps with the fun sentiment to match the trees are from the set too I stamped them in distress they didn't show up very well so I coloured over them with markers. The Paper I stamped on was the backside of some pattern paper I owned and it was a little shiny which didn't really allow the ink dry quickly.  So it could be moved around
I only used ONE colour of Brown on the moose fur and loved how much depth I got from the black ink just tinting the brown here and there. so kewl wish I had more of this paper now to play with.

Joy Claire - May anything goes **WON**
