margarita: noun

Hi y'all!
So glad you could stop by for a visit, take your jacket off, sit a spell....want something to drink? I have some cold sweet tea....oh something a little stronger?....well heck, let's whip up a batch of margaritas and PARTY, after all it's WOYWW and we have a lot of friends to visit!

So let's check out my careful, don't set your drink down on my desk 'cause I have my lesson #6 from Elizabeth's Altered Book Lover's class all finished! Take another sip and have a look around, you'll see my WOYWW badge held lovingly by my mojo monkey, Anne's altered tin, and signs of spring, a tissue box for allergies and a fan for the warmer weather!

Need a refill on that drink? My you are a thirsty one...or just a party girl? Which one is it? Well since you're still here, let me show you a card I have for CPS sketches this week. By the way, I won a set of  Sweet'n Sassy Stamps  from the CPS challenge last week! woo hoo...ooops spilled some of my drink on you there, here let me get a is my card for their new

I admit I am in a bit of a partying mood myself, ( refilling glasses )...I have to tell you that I won the top 3 over at Frosted Designs  and I won the garden challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas! wow, huh?


And to all my WOYWW friends, I have begun a weekly posting that allows you to link up any and all projects that you've created by being inspired through Pinterest. If you need an invitation to join Pinterest, then let me know and I'll send out the invite. I would love for you to join myself and Sarah from It's on the tip of my tongue for:


Well the margaritas are all finished up, guess you'll be moving on to the next WOYWW....sure hope they have some chips...I'm hungry, are you?

Pinterest project? Everything of mine goes through pinterest first - although I'm working on patriotic sheep at the mo(!) and perhaps they passed it by. I think of something, look for shapes resembling it, pin it, do it!

Karen said...

Have a great WOYWW and a fab week, Luv Karen xx #75

tracy said...

*smacks lips* That was a mighty tasty margarita. I think I had one to many as I'm finding it hard to type now... I pity the next blog I go visit 'cause heaven knows what will come out of my fingers when they've had a bit too much. Hee hee hee... LOVED visiting your desk and thank you for visiting mine! Happy WOYWW! - Warmly, Tracy #100

Make mine a Mohito please, it's permitted as it is 8:30 pm here in England but a bit late because we have already cracked open a bottle of red wine - there's a glass going spare if you would like one.

Going great guns on your AB Sandee. From the side view looks like a ton of pages finished.

I am so inspired when I see your workspace!!!! Love the altered book and the card!!! wonderful to see all of the creativity around here!!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Since the old man isn't here, I'll gladly join you for that drink or three. I can't drink tequila when he is around. When I drink tequila, my husband turns into a jerk. Funny how that is, huh? Loved the tour of your desk today, the altered book, the fan, the kleenix... can you pass one? The sketch card! Very great.

HeARTworks said...

You certainly made me in the mood for a party! I am thinking if I've ever done a project based on my pins on pinterest and I can't think of any! Thanks for the prod! Patsy from

Linda said...

I like your birthday card! I'll be back later for a margarita, I need to pick up child #2 from school first. :)

Unknown said...

Now I'm wanting a drink! Look what you've started! the pop up book you're working on. :)

okienurse said...

Margarita...yummy! I had a peach one yesterday with my Mexican food lunch. If you lived closer I would come join you and bring some salsa I make! Have a great week and thanks for commenting on my blog! Vickie #41

lisa said...

I'm feeling a bit tipsy now which is just as well as I'll have to go out into the horrible pouring rain and cold winds we have here in the UK today. Have you seen my umbrella, I left it in your hallway!!
What a lovely looking desk, that AB is beautiful.
Sending you very soggy waves from Yorkshire today.

Ohhh Snap said...

The book is looking gorgeous! I'm bringing up the rear I think lol. Congratulations on your win at Die Cuttin Divas and thanks for visiting :D. #134

Shoshi said...

Really love your altered book, Sandee, and you've got a great creative space there.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - so glad you like the knitting! Sorry to hear you've struggled with zentangles but it definitely sounds as if you're tensing up and holding the pen too tight - after all it's supposed to be all about relaxation and enjoyment!! I haven't done any all week, apart from a few sketches in my Art Journal.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #90

I'm in love with that AB I see on your table. I look forward to the big reveal on the 29th, too. Have a great WOYWW. I don't know my number because you are the first person I've visited tonight. But you know who I am, so I'm hoping you can find me, or you already have. Yep, I'm a very, very busy camper this week.

karen said...

Your desk is so busy and creative and your Altered book looks fabulous! I hope you will do a post of the whole thing! Thanks for visiting me earlier and bringing the margaritas over too :)

peggy aplSEEDS said...

Cute card Sandee and congratulations on winning the stamps and on your top 3 placement too x

Your AB looks as though it's coming along marvellously!

Could I possibly have a hot chocolate and a cardigan to wear - only it's still cold and wet here in England - it's been raining on and off all day and windy too! Still a look around all the desks
warms us up! lol.

Thanks for already coming to see my desk this week x

ps the racoons on the top picture are so cute

RosC said...

Margaritas sound fine, and since the weather has been quite awful here, you can't see whether the sun's over the yard-arm. Pour away! Your AB looks interesting, and obviously you're following Elizabeth's classes diligently. Great work.
Thanks for dropping by. The cards in the rack aren't ATCs but are about that size. I might just make a couple which is new to me.
