WOYWW #378

Good afternoon woywwers. Haven’t posted in a while. Hangs head in shame. Oh dear what have I been doing?

Well, in post retirement world Wednesday seems to have become my default housekeeping day, when shopping gets delivered, bathrooms get a good going over, the hoover has an outing and for good measure I may even plan a home cooked meal. Plus I go to a lunchtime aqua class. Part of this means I also usually get around to tidying my workspace. Which means I frequently have nothing to show. So when I do get on the pc I just faff about on FB watching cat videos.

But today I have this.


This is me making samples and sorting out stamps for one of my card making workshops. In case it’s not clear, this is watercolour stamping. Or faux watercolour. Anyhow, that was a fun evening’s prep reminding myself of the technique.

So why am I telling you this? Hop on over here to find out.

Have missed you all. Must do better!!

Love n hugs,

Happy WOYWW. I have not tried 'watercolour stamping' - so pretty; would make a lovely set of notelets. Ali x #25

Do you want to clean my house too? I will adore you for the rest of my life! ;-)
I hate householdwork right now and have no inspiration for it. Wish I had though.

Your watercolour stamping is beautiful! Awesome flowers.

And suddenly I remember ... I have to post a letter...

Have a great rest of the week!

Great to see you - your post retirement life is very busy isn't it! I found my set of aquarelles not long ago and thought it was high time I tried this again - your cards are wonderful - I'd say you've mastered it!

Gorgeous stamping - you have some lovely stamped images there, they really don't look like stamping at all. As I'm not familiar with the technique I'm off to google it!
Have a love week,
