WOYWW #233 .... Winter :)

Happy Wednesday!!

It's another week of WOYWW #233, always a fun trip around
the globe starting with Julia's blog!
This has been a wonderfully busy week, but blessed by the busy-ness 
of it, including getting crafty!

And guess what I did ... crafted outside!
I had my temporary table going into the shed and thought ..
The weather is positively gorgeous, the light is perfect,
The doggies love being outdoors with me ...let's color!

I went with a non traditional holiday card this week ..
Using this cute Whipper Snapper stamp
And following the Mojo Monday sketch :)
I love LOvE this vintage Jersey Shore SU! Paper and it's always
Fun to use it.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!


  1. What a great idea to work outside! I need to try that this spring! Your card is cute! That penquin is adorable!

  2. What a beautiful spot to work in Kelly :-) and a beautiful card resulted. You must have been inspired by your surroundings.

  3. Oh yes the sunshine is such a lovely thing to feel on your skin and to craft in. I am just hopping that it will come soon to us, spring is nearly over and summer nearly upon us, I love the warmth.

    I do like your card with no traditional colors this is something that I try and do every Christmas is use the non traditional colors.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW & Happy Creating

  9. Oh Kel, just what I needed - a blast of real warm sunshine and some great light! Thank you. If I weren't so happy for you I'd be jealous! Make the most. And blimey, if that means colouring and card making like that, then I guess you are..what fab colouring skills.

  10. Ohhh I would love to craft outside. The wind has been howling this week, so probably won't do that till spring. Peg #46

  15. Oh my goodness--I can't think of many more glorious things than crafting in the Florida sunshine!! That idea was inspired. The closest I've gotten lately is last weekend the weather in the Ozarks was perfect, and my worktable is right off my sunporch, so I opened windows and doors and let the sun shine on in! It was a happy crafty day. Hugs! Thanks for your sweet visit. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #11

    I absolutely adore your card. What a cutie he is!

    And of course you've created another superbly adorable card. Love it!

  21. I bet your lighting was perfect! LOL You know how you can never get perfect lighting inside. The card is adorable and that image was beautifully colored. I hope the weather cooperates for you to craft outside again. April #17

  22. Outside? In November? Oh my word - we are sitting here this evening - the wind is howling around the bungalow - there was snow on the mountains yesterday - and the temperature is down around 4. Last week it was 14!!! Oh, green eyed jealousy is rearing its head!
    Have a great time outside.

    Happy Winter my a**!!! You're crafting in the sunny garden, I'd hardly call that winter, lol! I live in Michigan so I'm definitely feeling a little envious here. Love the card you made, really pretty.

  27. What a treat to create outside in the lovely weather. You can tell you are in florida as it was 29 degrees this morning when I went to work and was scrapping ice! Enjoy each moment of it! Love your card, he is such and adorable fella! I really love the color combo of the blues with the orange.

  28. He is so darn cute. Love the paper too! Wish I could craft outside in November!

  29. It is way too cold to stamp outside here in NY. Your card is adorable!

  30. Oh my! This image is so darling and I love the colors and design you used. So fun! So nice you were able to craft outside. My desk is so unorganized that it would take me more time to move everything back and forth! Sounds beautiful though! :)

  31. I can't wait to get active with WOYWW again! Maybe in two more weeks I can!

    Love your outdoor stamping space!! Texas weather affords us this luxury as well!

    Fun card, Kelly!

  32. Hi Kelly,

    The first thing I noticed was all the sunshine - no wonder, you live in Florida!! We are getting snow here in New Mexico; like all the kids, I was hoping for a "snow day."

    Your card is pretty darn cute!

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (6)

  33. How FUN and inspiring. Such a lovely card and I so enjoy the non traditional colors.

  34. Super cute! I love that paper you used. That looks like me this morning. It was only 7 degrees outside! So jealous you were crafting outside in the wonderful sunshine!

  35. How fun to craft outside. I think I'd be afraid that my stuff would blow all away!

  36. Gorgeous! I love your layering.
