WOYWW - late again!

My computer hates me, its official. Pretty much every time there is a cyber crop on UKS, and every Wednesday the damn thing decides its not going to connect to the internet, or stay connected long enough to do anything.

Fortunately thanks to Mr Apple, I can surf on my Iphone, but its too fiddly to type blogs, I can't post piccies and Mr Odeon wont let me book cinema tickets (another sure sign the pc hates me).

Anyway its working tonight, so here a little late is my WOYWW. A couple of piccies and a valuable lesson learned.

First up - when you are using alcohol inks, make sure you:
a) put the lids on straight away and in the event you dont
b) have some rubbing alcohol or surgical spirits to clean your desk with when you spill it and
c) check up your arms for any blobs and dont wait till someone points it out at work next day!

Finally, here are some hat themed cards I made using a set of 4 quatro stamps and a background stamp from hero arts. You cant see very well but the ladies are embellished with tiny stick on gem and a paper rose.

I just checked to see if I'd missed anyone, and glad I wasn't as late as I thought. Had a good laugh about the AIs. They are hard to wash off, as I'm sure you discovered. Those hat cards are simply STUNNING. I love them all. Can't wait to see what you make with your AI project on your desk.

Yep, glad you made it Ally - and sorry but I did laugh. Not about the spilling so much as the blobs on the arms trick!!
The cards are fab.


Your cards are fab , luv em x


Wonderful cards, Ally -- but I think you need a Mac. VBG


Those cards are wonderful ...simple and elegant to the eye ...I just love them.

Had to laugh at the ink escapade but I think I just might get some sugical spirits ...just in case.

Hoorah ...I've finished the list of links ....and its only ....Friday mid-day! lol


OOPs, I've been to work with very inky hands, gorgeous cards too.

Hands to Work, Hearts to God

I know what you mean about computers. I joined this blog party/tutorial on Inspiration Avenue, and just as I was making my tutorial, the screen blanked out! That was last night so now I am using my son's computer while he is asleep! Really great job with the hat cards!
