WOYWW4 and nothing from him because I'm jealous!

No more sharing, that man has enough fans as it is! Closer in you can see that I have been taking Ikki's message to heart and trying to get the best from my Spellbinders dies. This little swirl is from a shapeabilities set and I have just noticed that it fits the Craftwork Cards oval messages. Hoping to do a bit more with this idea as it will probably fit the Stampin' Up oval punch as well.
This is a little card I made using the sugared almonds collection from Craftwork Cards
and that Martha Stewart edge punch I lusted after so much and then hardly used it.Here's another I made using a Stampin' Up set and a Craftwork Cards card blank. I'm trying to build up a stock of simple cards because my little sis takes them and sells them for me. I had just finished making several when she rang and asked if I had a plain sympathy card. Thank goodness I'd invested in this set because it took moments to make one with the sentiment she asked for which was in the set.
I've just fished out some golden oldies from the cupboard because I've got an idea for using the flower-from Magenta-and the strange rectangular ones which are called block-it stamps (just in case you've never seen them before.
As I was doing this the doorbell rang and the Hougie board arrived so I'm cutting it short and might get back to you later if there's anything worth reporting.
DH is being zapped tomorrow-don't worry I'm not torturing him because he's got women swooning over his etchings LOL-he is having a procedure called cardio-version which is to attempt to restore a normal heart rhythm.
Aha just remembered the wierdest thing happened after last weeks WOYWW -I saw someone had mentioned a thing called WORDLE so took a look and when I checked out the gallery someone had done a Betty wordle with the words Betty funny hardworking creative loving. Did I print it out? You bet I did.Think I'll buy a gold frame for it! That site supposedly has ten hits a second so how strange is that? By the way I did have a go at zentangling too but think I'll keep that for when I've nothing to do-actually might take some with me to the hospital tomorrow.
Hougie is calling folks Tata.
Just remembered-check out the great video on Shaz's blog-this is such a great flower making video. Haven't tried it yet but if the results on her blog are anything to go by it definitely works. Thanks for the sympathy as well my back is improving.
Haha forgot to say if you would like to play the WOYWW game just pop along to Julia's blog and if I can manage to do it you can too.
