WOYWW # 116 - AND a few challenge entries!!!

Hi WOYWWers!

I running in late today with my WOYWW - had chores this morning and then met a friend for lunch (well thats my excuse anyway!)  So thought I would join in the fun again over at Julia's place aka WOYWW!  So for all your peeps here is what on mine today:-

 So starting at bottom left are a a pile of xmas cards that I made a start on yesterday for a Craft Fayre that I'm attending in November I've inked and coloured the images I've just got to add the "sparkle" - OBVIOUSLY!!!!  Next in the middle of my desk is the finished item (that you may remember being on my desk in the "draft" stage last week more on that in a mo....  Behind that is a plastic wallet with concertina folded paper all ready to make those lovely flowers (as I borrowed the die from someone at a craft club last week) and lastly another half finished card that I started at a craft club last week (me and my half finished stuff!!!!!)

So here is another close up photo of my little "book card" that I'm entering into a few challenges listed at the end of this post

and the inside:-

and more close ups:-  this vintage image a friend gave me (as she had one going spare!) and that is what I based my colour scheme on - I think she is lovely!


I had great fun making this book card and will hopefully find the time to make some more cos IRL they do look gorgeous!  You just cannot see in these photos the sparkle - which is such a shame!!!!!

So thought I should put this into a few challenges and here they all are:-
