WOYWW #208 - It's the big day!

Welcome to my place WOYWWers around the globe! Got your party hats on? Today is extra special. It's Wednesday and it's our blog hop's fourth birthday. Hurrah! 
I bet everyone is burning with anticipation to try and spot hidden ATCs on workdesks here and there! 
Without further ado, here's what my desk looks like:

I've been playing with paper and embellies. I'm in the middle of making a card using this cute hedgehog stamp. Just finished a fun summer card there on the easel and an award ribbon for dad who's got a promotion the other day!
Have I forgotten anything? Hmm, paper, buttons, brads, scissors. Oh, those two envelopes you say? 
Well, you've got them! Two wonderful WOYWW friends sent me ATCs all the way from England!

This one if from Ali. She did a wonderful job making a little envelope for the ATC and all! Thank you Ali. I love it!

And this one is from Annie. Look at the beautiful embroidery! The best part? The little WOYWW poem she's written! You should have seen the smile on my face the whole time I was reading it. Thank you very much Annie. It's beautiful. :)

And finally, my ATCs:
 Three of them have been posted to my extra swap partners and there's one waiting for my list partner.

Sorry for the long post, but there was so much I wanted to show you! Now hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground. I bet everyone's having a little party at their place, too!
Happy anniversary everyone!



  1. Good morning Roudi you have some fab cards on your desk. I like the cardboard one at the bottom. I also see you have one from Annie- Wipso. She did one for me too

  7. Hi Roudi,
    Thank you for your lovelhy comment about the card. The little pin is cute, isn't it? It's a gift from Julia Dunnit and she will probably be very pleased if you ask her to send one to you.
    Lovely photos of your ATCs both your own and those you've received. What a treat.
    Happy WOYWW anniversary.

  33. Hi Roudi,

    My ATC was waiting for me when I got back from vacation. Needless to say it's very special to me. Thank you so much!!! As for me, I haven't started my ATCs yet but will mailing you one out hopefully soon.

    I went to Phoenix, AZ to visit a friend and arrived home very late on Wednesday. I've been catching up ever since. If you want to see some photos I took pop on over.

    I too was lucky enough to receive one of Annie's beautiful ATCs. Isn't it something. And the little note in her card is so special too.

    Happy WOYWW
