A quick post before I go over to see mum and sort out her hearing aid!

This is for WOYWW 158. I was on holiday in Eastbourne for nearly two weeks till last Tuesday, so wasn't able to take part in WOYWW - pity, because I would have loved to have been involved in the ATC swap - nevermind, I'm sure there'll be another opportunity sometime.

To the left of me there's a box of patterned paper offcuts that I need to keep using, a couple of pieces ready to make black and gold cards, using a couple of dies I bought in Eastbourne - and paper packs and stamps that were also bought while I was on holiday. Hoping to play with some of the new stamps very soon.

To the right of me are the remains of what was needed to make the 'celebrate' card - I need to put all these away. And there are some new dies purchased in Eastbourne hidden in that box - need to get using them!

Thanks to all WOYWWers who take the time to visit and leave comments - much appreciated - I'll try to get round to as many as I can this week.


  1. Oh my word! LOVE all those stamps! Pity I can't afford any just now! You MUST let us see what you make with those!

    Happy WOYWW

  3. Hey I live in Eastbourne!! Did you enjoy your visit?? Where did you buy your lovely supplies while you were here?


  4. Looks like you have some lovely new stamps there Hazel, can’t wait to see what you do with them. I picked up a couple of new ones myself this week from the clearance bin in Hobbycraft and look forward to playing with them once I’m straight again.

    I didn’t join in with the ATC swap for various reasons but Annie and JO sent to me and I’m going to make something for them in return so if you still want to join in I don’t mind making something for you too, it may be a week or so in arriving thought.

    Happy Crafting!
