Welcome to Lori, my latest follower!  I hope you enjoy the cards I've made and will be making, along with other crafty items too.
These WOYWW come around quick don't they!  I'm still having problems with Blogger, but haven't had a chance to sort it out yet, luckily my quick fix still works!  Thanks everyone for all your helpful tips - you can always rely on a friendly crafter!!!
So what is on my Big Worktray today then?  Yes, it's the big tray and not the small one this time.  I had some lovely stamps for Christmas and thought I'd give them an airing already!!!  I seem to have learnt the art of stamping now as I only managed to 'bodge' one...not bad huh!!!  My hands lock up so I don't find it easy to do but perseverance is the key!

Hope you all have a great WOYWW!!!!

hi Karen thanks for stopping by the word window punch is a punch from stampin' Up! really easy to use it is one of the flat style punches i lay my upside down on the table so that i can push down with both hands. I use it a lot. if you would like any more info then please get in touch

Happy WOYWW Mrs.C #46 {i think?!}

It's annoying when ailments get in the way of having fun but, like you, I just keep going :-)

Ah, perseverance - that's my 'word' for this year rather than resolutions. Have an artificial wrist so I understand your difficulty with stamping - same here but like you I persevere too! Have a happy WOYWW, Anne x #35

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Well, it's looking good to me, Karen! You are a resilient gal, unlike me!
I've been getting a heap of stuff together to send you but will probably get it off in the post next week. There will be a heap of items, all different, so pass it on to who you want to :)

You've acheived a lovely clear bit of stamping there! And what a cute stamp. If you google handmade paper flowers pinkaboo6691, you should get to the flower tutorial you asked about . Have fun x

It's looking good, Karen. We all bodge an image every so often so don't worry. After all it's only a bit of card. Keep going!!

Good for you getting ink on your rubber! Looks like you managed just fine, but it's a pain when the spirit is willing but.... for me it's my eyesight, really can't see that well when I'm tired. Anyhow Happy WOYWW and thanks for popping by!! Cindy #74 ps I have heard people say that the rock a blocks are good if you have hand problems but I've never tried them myself.

Caz said...

It's frustrating when you can't do everything you want when you want to, isn't it?!?!? My knuckles and shoulders give up with too much crocheting or beading - ignore the pain for a while but then have to give up for a bit!

Julia Dunnit said...

oh that image is so cute! Two handed stamping for you gal..hold in one hand, firm pressure with the other without letting go. Ah yes, even stamping in bed can be done! I have to remind the gals that come to workshops that the samples I set before them are very often not the first out of my head, bodges are about the only constant!

Lori said...

Aawwww!!! Thanks for the welcome.

I love that little doggie stamp. Too cute!! And that is saying alot from this cat person.

Sorry I am 2 days late hopping to your desk. Been battling a nasty flu bug.
