WOYWW #255

Good morning WOYWWers.

You may be wondering where I was last week (or maybe not!) However, for those of you who were wondering although I said I wasn't going away last week, we decided at the last minute to have a short break, and the place we had booked for July had some availability - so off we went for 4 days to Devon, and it was as lovely as I had hoped.

For my desk this week

As you can see I have had my alcohol inks out and I have a finished card, here are a couple of close ups. The die is from Tattered Lace, a pressie from my sister. The background is the caught in crystal technique.

As you can see my melt pot has been in use as well, this is what I made:

And as an extra bonus, a piccie of Jess in the garden at the cottage in Devon, as you can see we had fab weather

Off to look at everyone else's desks over on Julias blog, so bye for now.

  3. {sigh} This is why it takes me AGES to work thru WOYWW - have to pop off and google the caught-in-crystal technique.... It's so very striking!

    Happy WOYWW!

  13. That card is lovely, Donna - well done. Obviously enjoying the die your sister gave you...
    Devon - fabulous - and such good weather, too. We love Devon, and for many years have stayed in a log cabin down in the South Hams area - near to Bigbury, can go sit and watch the surfers - (huge sighs) glorious!!! Glad you had such a great four days.
    Thanks for visiting - and thanks for your prayers
