WOYWW #263 my opinion!

I posted the picture below last week but didn't know what was going on. It seems our fabulous hostess was hospitalized.  Julia I hope you have recovered and that you are well and thriving. Congratulations on the 5 years of creating community across the world.

Now to highlight my fun mail: Thank you Regina, your envelope looks like a tire ran over it but it arrived in tact. It's so bright and colorful. Did you use a stencil and embossing paste for the bumped up embellishment?

Krisha decorated and laminated the envelope,so sweet. She included a fun and funny u-tube stamped card as well as the atc in an envelope.

Nan sent a delightful array of papers along with her professional atc card...sorry for the poor photo. I was only half awake...thanks so much Nan.

Below Birgita sent this wonderful tree card with tiny sparkling leaves, 
along with the swapped atc... a miniature work of paradise art. 

Darnell's delightful little purse titled "LITS" is too short. I love the sweet enamel dots. 

Sandra de from Australia sent the atc in the upper right corner along with 
the beautiful water color pictured below. 

This watercolor is so soft and lovely...big bonus prize. 

I'll be celebrating my 3rd year of blogging on June 22, 2014. To celebrate and to entice you to comment I'll be offering a gift package of die cuts and embellishments... all you have to do is make a request. What would you like???? butterflies, turtles, frogs, teddy bears , rocking horses, kitty cats? Perhaps something exotic. I'll see what I can do.

 The number of random winners will be determined by the number of comments and requests. So if you would like to have some blog candy 
just let me know by leaving a comment or request.

Want to play along? Find out all you need to know here:
I can't believe it took 2 hours to get this done...I'm off to snoop about and see what I can discover. Are you brave enough to show us your desk?
Be well ~ Carole

  2. What a fabulous watercolour. Not sure if you did it or had it sent to you. But either way it is beautiful.
    Great selection of atc's you got too.

  3. Wow, Sandra's watercolour is so beautiful - what a fab thing to arrive in the post! Love all your ATCs, they're all so different :-)
    Many congrats on your 3rd anniversary - do you know, it must be mine coming up soon. Please don't enter me into your giveaway, it wouldn't be fair as I don't papercraft at all. It would be nicer for someone else to appreciate it!
    Hugs, LLJ 29 xx

  4. Hi! I'm #67, and I'm thrilled to be on the list under #100! Love your post and a chance at the giveaway. Happy Anniversary! I'd love anything kitty cats. I have a wonderful, long-haired, white cat, named Pooky-Blue. He's so sweet I don't know what I'd do without him! He loves to sit at the table and watch me craft.

  5. Oh, lucky girl, what wonderful ATCs and pressies you received, Carole!! Congratulations on your third year of blogging! You know I have a mountain of NBUS, so please don't throw my name in the hopper for your generous candy.

    (I want to thank you for mentioning about the picture of your ATC on my blog. I did put the unedited photo in on accident - it was very late. It's fixed now and I hope you like it better!)

    Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week! Hugs, Darnell #14

  17. Thank you, Carol, for the nice comment on my blog...
    and yes, I was quite fortunate to win...still can't believe that! It's so seldom that I win anything. I told her that I would have entered the challenge without prizes...and I meant that.
    Hope you are having a nice summer. We're not going on any vacation this summer. So I'm trying to spend my time crafting instead but still not managing to get anything completed.

  18. Wow Carole, I need to get in a swap like this! You have some very talented friends. And, the watercolor flowers from Sandra is gorgeous. Happy 3rd year of blogging. I'm passed the deadline but who would love all the goodies to celebrate your blogging anniversary!

    Happy anniversary.
