WOYWW 223


I love to snoop around other crafter's spaces. I find it comforting to know I'm not the only obsessed and chaotic crafter.  Come join the fun...see what you can discover. Thanks to Julie for hosting this interesting challenge



Windows and doors and tiny green wreaths plus a cute pop up penguins card I saw on Pinterest. This link shows the adorable scarfed penguins that made me want to try a stage pop up. Mine need some perfecting.

I was inspired to join a Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge when I saw Loll's fantastic card. I got out my green scraps and made some wreaths, then I die cut a couple windows, then some ovals, then I made a couple doors....but nothing was coming together. I finally completed  the card in the front which I will enter after I snoop around and clean up. I have until Sunday to post it.


Here's another shot. I like to have everything within view or reach...other wise I forget about it. I hope to find a way to use all the windows and things I made, I'd hate to waste them. Do you have this madness going on when you create a card....come on tell the truth...it can be challenging:)

  4. Hi Carole, great looking cards - very cute penguins and your doors and windows look fab.

    How do I choose which desks to visit - well - how long have you got?

    Firstly I have "regulars" that I've visited ever since I started WOYWW - I also like to have a nose at any one with an interesting blogger name or any one who posts as a newbie, after that it tends to be reciprocal visits to people who have visited me. I know that some deskers pick anyone with the same last number as them so say they were no. 6 they would then visit 16, 26, 36 etc as well as any reciprocal visits.

    Thanks for your visit - have a happy week. MMx #76

  6. Love that penguin card! The window card is just lovely as well. Lots of fun on that desk! Thank you for the kind visit today. Yous asked how I decide to snoop on, and for me, it is random, and sometimes I pay visits to those who visit me often. It is all so much fun! Glad I got to meet you today! Winnie#79

  14. challenging? Oh my, that's such a nice polite way of naming what I sometimes experience!! Ive a stack of dies that I've cut 'in error' just this afternoon... It makes me so cross when I have such a nice bolt of inspiration but can't get the idea onto paper. mind you, I often end up with something I quite like...but it's nothing and I mean NOTHING like the card I set out to make!!
