WOYWW 156 - Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to you,  Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Julia and WOYWW.......Happy Birthday to you!

I don't know where this week went.  I should have been more organised and I would not have been up so late this morning - still at least it meant I could take my WOYWW photos!

If you roll through these photos really fast it will look like a movie!  I had transferred all my images on to my ATCs but that is as far as I had got so at 1am I had them framed and ribboned.

Then I had an idea to make my images look like sketches and by ten past one I had this plus one design finished!

On a roll now I had direction and I hung bunting on my ATCs (if you haven't spotted it I am going with the Jubilee theme).  All bunting in the air by twenty past.  I had made the bunting earlier in the day.

Word strips and leaf added by half one.

Rose and patriotic jewels and I am almost there - yawning a bit now at one forty.

And last but not least my ATCs all glossy accented and ready to swap.  I went to bed at 1.55 am and this is my desk later this morning as I write this post.  There are 3 discarded ATCs in the top left of photo.   Ready to swap.

I am going to keep one ATC and one to swap with my WOYWW neighbour so if anyone else wants to swap please leave me a comment I have 7 more ATCs to play with.

I must apologise to everyone for not getting to desks last week.  I haven't been in my craft room or blogged at all this week.  I have been busy in the garden getting jobs done while the weather is great and so we have a tidy place for our Jubilee family BBQ on Tuesday.



  1. Helen, As you will probably be aware I am patriotic MAD so please pop me in the hat for a chance ATC. Yes my London skyline is a stamp from the London icons by Artemio, look at my last weeks WOYWW for a link to them. BJ #40

  2. Hello Helen, I am thrilled to be the recipient of one of your lovely UK ATC's. It was lovely to see the progression of details you have added to the atc. I will email you my address. Happy woyww 3rd anniversary.

  25. I'm in LOVE with those ATCs. I love the British patriotic theme that has popped up along with Julia's 3rd anniversary. Happy day after WOYWW from #2.

  26. If I counted right there could be one left - they are fabulous. Oh forgot, should have begun saying what fabulous atc's you have made - and what a lot of effort you put into them. Great theme and I love the bunting.
    My email addie is on my sidebar if there is one left to swap.
    Happy Blogaversary - Hugs, Neet #15 xx (late because she had a shed load of visitors yesterday)

  27. I love the play by play on how your ATCs came to life. That was fun, but sorry you didn't get sleep over it. Love the addition of the bunting-so festive!

  28. Oh your ATC's are great, I did roll through fast just for the fun of it and yes I see what you mean. LOL

    Happy 3rd Anniversary WOYWW
