Hello to all my lovely WOYWW friends, am I glad to seeeeeeeeeee you!
As you can see, my creativity has taken a turn for the FB games, in particular Words with Friends, here I am currently losing AGAIN to Angela, she whoops me every single time, that woman is smart! If you ever want to play, find me on FB, I'm a willing gamester ;)
Speaking on smart women,  I'd like to introduce you to a friend of mine who is going to participate in WOYWW this week, her name is Lori and she does Mixed media canvases and has an Etsy store. We met in a FB group that meets every Monday night and paints and chats together called Mixed  Media Mondays with Tracy Weinzapfel, now I told Lori all about you ladies so y'all better behave!!
( I might have left off that we are a stalkerish sort of group, but she'll figure it out! lol )
Please go over to her blog, and say hi :)
I have gotten away from a favorite site of mine called Our Daily Bread designs, they make wonderful stamps...when I crashed my last computer I lost several favorite places ... and it really didn't dawn on me until I pulled out the "Sewn with love" stamp set the other day for this wall hanging. ( one of my favorite sets )
They currently have a challenge called:
my old: Our Daily Bread designs Mini tag 3 stamp set ( Happy Birthday to you! )
my new: Cricut cartridge - Wildlife ( Christmas present to myself )
Creative Imagination -  paper
twine, pop dots - misc.
Helmars - Liquid Scrapdots ( to keep all those little areas up so they don't get smushed, ears etc. )
Stazon ink
and another card I made, just cause I am having fun :) I really, really need more of this paper, this is the last little bit of it :(
entering this in:

Paper Playtime: Challenge #1 Pets
 ( well, she will allow any animal but if your current on my blog then you know that the wildlife in my backyard are my pets! I just need to include a raccoon card and squirrel card to make it complete!

beautiful cards . Happy woyww, jill#10

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I knew immediately that the deer were your pets. Outdoor pets are good. They don't try to sleep in your bed with you and hog your pillow like some PETS I know. OOPS, can't call Bleubeard a pet. He thinks he's the boss and I'm the pet.

Loved those cards, though. They are fun, fun, fun.

Claire said...

loving the cards!!
and i guess it's not just teenagers who are addicted to computer games... **grin*
Happy WOYWW and have a great week :o)

Have a creative week, the cards you shared are lovely! Helen #7

Redanne said...

Hi Sandee,it is no wonder you are so good with words then.... your card is lovely and does remind me of the deer you photographed in your garden. Didn't know you got raccoons too, I hope you will show a photo of them one day too. Happy WOYWW, hugs from Anne x #47

BJ said...

Gosh, don't know how anyone has the time for Facebook let alone Facebook games! I do neither! Lovely cards, love the lilac mountains and yes I know your pets well. BJ#52

Lori said...

Love the deer!!!

Words With Friends. LOL. Which one of us are winning currently?

Thanks again for introducing me to WOYWW. I will figure out this time difference thingy and get a higher number next week. UGH. This is going to be an addiction. Oh well.

It's 5 am here. The kid just left for swim practice, the hubby is on his bike, and I am blog hopping thanks to you. Love it!!

CraftygasheadZo said...

Aha the slippery slope of FB games! I used to play a few but am easily distracted by them and then end up not doing anything! Enjoy though. Will look you up though my friend. Take care Zo xx 43

Ann B said...

Hi Sandee and Happy New Year (my first visit to your blog this year).
Have already been on Lori's blog (I'm trying to visit some new blogs so picking those on the list that end with the same number as mine) and she does some beautiful work.

Have a good week.

Your work always amazes me such tallent and diversity. The deers seem to pop, wonderful.

As for FB games sorry I dont do them as I really don't want to waste that amount of time and would prefer to do art instead LOL

I love your cards

Words and Pictures said...

Delightful cards, Sandee! Like some of the other commenters, I can't bear to give up any crafting time any longer - pretty much all my other activities (except blog visiting obviously) have given way to the lure of the craft stash!! Happy WOYWW!

Katie said...

I love your deer cards!

I haven't tried words with friends yet. But I am terrible at Scrabble (I've only won once...ever...and we play a lot!) so words with friends doesn't seem like a Katie-game!

Apryl said...

I love your cards! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Sandee thanks for your earlier visit. Will be heading over to visit Lori after this.
The deer cards are gorgeous. I used to love Scrabble but don't seem to have the time for games much now unless they're the video kind!

April said...

I consider our wildlife as our pets, too. The trees on your card are so pretty - I assume you painted those - very nice. Thank you for sharing your cards. April #136

Sharon said...

Both of your cards are beautiful! I love the deer and that awesome paper!! Thank you so very much for playing with us at Paper Playtime!!!! :)

Hello Sandee! thanks for popping in today! Love your creations. Off to browse your blog as it is all new to me! Love you creations today as well...and ST Patricks Day cards already...oh my you are on the ball!

Belinda Basson said...

Thanks for introducing Lori, I am going to try find you guys if I fall in the right time zone on Monday...I also have book club this week so maybe next time...#42

Darnell said...

Delightful post, Sandee, as ever! Your cards are really "deer." Sorry, groan, couldn't help myself.

I've been to see your friend Lori and see that she is getting a mahoosive welcome!! She must be thrilled. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine!

Thanks for coming by the Playhouse and have a wonderful week if I don't see you before!! Darnell #30

Happy Belated WOYWW. Loving the cards - and so jealous that you get to see such a wide variety of animals. We see occasional foxes or badgers here, and once I saw a stoat on our farmyard, but otherwise it is the usual cows/sheep/horses. We do get seabirds, as we are only 3 miles from the sea - so I can't complain too much! Off now to check out your link. Ali x #40

Morti said...

aha! I need to find you on FB then cos I'm a WWF addict too - but can rarely find someone decent to play against!

Love the cards you've made - the deer are just darling!

Happy New Year - hope it's a good one for you. Thanks for stopping by!

Super cards! Belated Happy WOYWW, Di xx #32

I never got into those games, which is good because I'd never get anything done if I did, lol!!! Love your cards, so pretty!

Craftychris said...

The deer cards are fab and I scooted back and looked at the wall hanging, that is fabulous too! I am following Lori, another wonderful talent! xx

Craftychris said...

I forgot, you asked what the pink machine on my desk is with the tape on. Its my Grand Calibre die cutting machine and the tape are bits of removable tape that I use to keep dies in place when going through the machine. I reuse them so store them on the machine. It does look like they are holding the machine together doesn't it? xx

Andrea said...

hi sorry its a late visit been a busy week thanks for your visit. your cards are fab and as always a great post.. did you win the game ? have a great week hugs Andrea #67

Becky said...

Hahahaha, I get caught up in games on my phone sometimes :) Your cards are beautiful!! I stopped by Lori's yesterday :) Have a great day Sandee!

Krisha said...

Hi Sandee! Never too late to play WOYWW. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and yes Lori came by too. My goal today is to put the center pieces together for the shower!! (??)Love your deer card.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Love the deer card. I think they count as pets. I do fret over the packrat in the yard, both wondering if he is okay and hoping he hasn't decided to move into the house.

Erika said...

Cute cards Sandee, sorry late visit but ended up very busy yesterday.
Hugs Erika.

Shoshi said...

Sandee, thank you for introducing Lori to us. I have already paid her a visit.

I love what you are doing at the moment! The last card in this post is just gorgeous... Beautiful trees, and I love how you've cut the deer to be the foreground layer. Beautiful work. I've also left you a comment on your latest post as I found this absolutely thrilling!

Thank you for your great comment - very complimentary! Rev. Ernest Bear is looking extremely pleased with himself since his makeover, and my hubby is very pleased too. I've now been asked to do radical surgery on Yellow Bear and sew her head back on!!! As for my spoke guards, I'm getting on fine with them and am almost at the decorating stage. I'll certainly be posting some details as I get going - including videos.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #77

Hi Sandee, thanks for your visit. Hats off to you trying to visit all the desks! I popped over to see Lori yesterday.

Tamika said...

I like ODB too! I just get overwhelmed when deciding what to pick. Your cards dimensions and everything is AWESOME!!! U don't play games on FB yet but word and numbers are good for the memory so I hear? Thanks for stopping by and checking out my desk.

mamapez5 said...

Love the three-D deer. how lovely to have them visiting your back yard - or are they very destructive I wonder. The nearest we get to wild life are the tortoise on the campo. As I am a day late getting to you I have read your later post. Love all the washy-colourful backgrounds. It looks like a fun way to spend a day. Kate x #57

Anonymous said...

Hi, Sandee, I'm late getting around, too, since I didn't even post until the evening yesterday. I've visited your friend -- she's being thoroughly welcomed by one and all. Love the cards -- soft colors, natural elements. Good stuff. Happy Thursday from Laura #141 [I'm a big WWF player, too -- I'll try to find you on FB soon.]

Elizabeth said...

Hi Sandee, I've no idea what FB is so I'm going to have to do a bit of googling I think :) I love Our Daily Bread sets of quote stamps - well, love the set I have and intend buying more at some point. Your cards are gorgeous. Will pop over and visit Lori too. Thanks for sharing - as always I enjoyed reading your post. Elizabeth x #69

Thanks for your visit this week, and I am now crafting again, albeit amongst the mess. How much space do you need to make an ATC anyway? Love your deer card. Have a good week. xx Maggie #32

Love the cards you've made there. So glad you introduced Lori to us all too. Isn't it nice to have a huge group of people to be in touch with every week. Thanks for dropping by, hugs Jenny #35

Queen Lightwell said...

Well, I'm terribly late at returning your visit, but I made it! :) I honestly thought I had already but one thing must have led to anoth...ooh, sparkly! Hmm, well, maybe I get a little distracted at times. Just a The deers are so dear on your cards. :) And you are a dear to try and make it to everyone's blog! I don't think I've ever been ambitious enough to even *try* it. You know, you should have done it a few weeks ago when the number of participants was way down! lol But that wouldn't have been much of a challenge, now would it? Well, hope you are having a lovely week and had a great weekend. Do say you did get a card from me sometime in the recent past, please? :) I'm just hoping it didn't get lost in the mail like that $300 worth of homeschooling books did! (Sent to someone else, of course) Hugs, Deeyll #142

Cardarian said...

You are soooo creative - it took me ages to find the WOYWW post as you have been doing so much since! I am really ashamed of myself - I have no mojo at all!!!! Maybe you will inspire me! Love all your makes and I will behave with Lori! I am usually good! :-)
Lots of hugs,
