WOYWW #244

First WOYWW of February, as always thanks to our much-loved leader, Julia at The Stamping Ground. This is my desk on Tuesday night, before I go to work. As you can see, I am indeed trying out another couple of colour combo's for the card in the previous post. A blue and a a purple version. And just in case you are interested, here's a long shot of the whole desk.

I'll finish putting them together and post them later in the week.I think this may be my personal best for short posts, lol. Although for such a short post, you would not believe how long its taken to write, thanks to Virgin/Blogger/keyboard! The Internet keeps dropping out, Blogger lost my image twice, and don't you just hate it when you accidentally catch the CAPS LOCK button, and don't realise 'cos you are looking at the keyboard while you are typing? Then look up to see a whole paragraph in capital letters? *Sigh.* Now I just had a panic, as I previewed my post, but shut the wrong tab down! Fortunately, Blogger did it job this time & saved it. I think it may be time to step away from the keyboard......
Hope you all have a great Wednesday, see you later.
 P.S. Sorry to anyone who tried visiting after I linked- Blogger continued its hex this morning and didn't post my scheduled post! I usually quickly check to make sure its up before I link, typically I didn't this morning. In my defence, I had had a desperate NEED for Sausage & Egg McMuffins since three o clock in the morning, so we grabbed some on the way home from work,and all I had on my mind was getting back downstairs to get nomming, lol.

I knew there was something wrong with your blog as I went to look at it in the middle of the night and it wouldn't let me look. The internet forces have not been helpful this week at all. Predictive text on the Kindle is doing my head in. Your desk looks so tidy at the moment, although I have found half of mine and enough floor for the dogs to lie down while I walk around them. I have nearly finished cataloguing my Clarity stamps - result. Inks next. Have a good week. xx Maggie #3

Love the purple and blue combo and know exactly what you mean about blogger and its strange ways! Apparently I shouldn't have been in the garden at all according to "The One Show" but I had a brown bin on loan from a neighbour whilst they were away so I had to get the twiggy stuff got rid of as it doesn't compost like the rest of the garden waste. Thanks for the visit BJ#73

my virgin internet keeps dropping out too, it's a real pain in the....! Love your alternate colour combi's, they look great. Helen 7

Julia Dunnit said...

I knew your link wasn't right but couldn't find the correct post...so now I know why! hope you enjoyed your mcmuffin, isn't it funny how you just can't get a need out of your head!! You know I like the card already...I think I like this colour combo even more....argh, choices!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

When you gotta have a McMuffin, who are we to deny you!!!! Like Julia, I couldn't find the correct link when I tried the morning so I'm glad you sorted it out :-)
Purple! Is there a finer colour anywhere?? Lol I'm having a real purple patch at the moment, clothes, fabric, yarn, not my hair .....yet! Do Doc Martins come in Lilac?!
Hugs, LLJ 33xx

Such pretty colours. I can see why your mind wouldn't have been entirely on the job in hand! Darn that Blogger he's a tricky customer at times.

Fabulous colour combination! As for virgin connections - paah! We don't expect brilliant connections at our caravan but we've had problems at home too! I have tried to comment on blogs only to be told its not allowed- along with a load of gobbledygook! Chris#70

Hello Shaz, hope you've recovered from your blogger aggro - I upload in live writer now purely because blogger will not put things where I want them or up the right way. (Mind you LW has it's probs as well but I can live with that). Just went down to have a look at the card - it's an absolute cracker. I'm sure the other combos will be just as stunning. Happy WOYWW Cindy #97

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Shaz, just popping in for a look - nice mono cards; have to make one myself for the ABC Christmas card challenge - chocolate creme. Cool working space Cheers RobynO#16

Peg Robinson said...

I have trouble with blogger all the time. Kind of depends on which equipment I'm using. I kind of work back-and-forth between my phone iPad and a desktop. It's probably mostly operator problem on my end. Peg R 25

Nice to look to your cards, it always is so much pleasure to see what people are creating.

Hi Shaz, beautiful cards, love the colours you're using.

I've been having trouble with blogger too - it wouldn't save my progress and I had visions of having to type it all again. Hope your tech gremlins get sorted quickly. Thanks for your visit, have a creative week. MMx #40

Hi Shaz,
Great color combo for the cards.
Thanks for stopping by Wednesday. always enjoy your comments.

Shaz, that is beautiful as is the previous card.
I also find Blogger has a mind of its own. Would love to find a different way of blogging but rather lazy and ignorant when it comes to that sort of technology.
Thank you for the full series of pics in the previous post. Makes things much clearer.
AS for the Sausage and Egg McMuffin, you're welcome.

Hello Shaz. Gorgeous colours this week - trust it is all coming together. Thanks for your visit. Hubby struggling on!!
I totally agree about the frustration of CAPS LOCK - I turned mine off altogether!! I was for ever hitting that instead of A. I think I managed it in "control" but not sure.... sorry, brain not functioning - obviously the effect of too much shopping at the show!
have a great week.

Neet said...

Oh I feel for you. What with catching wrong buttons and blogger behaviour ...
Loving the look of the colour combo, hope we get to see it when it is finished.
Bet the McMuffin went down a treat - could just eat one myself now.
Hugs, Neet xx
