I Spy with My Little Eye...

Good morning!  And a beautiful sunny morning it is!  About time after all those chilly mornings we have been having!  Unfortunately we are in the boat yard at the moment and it is FILTHY here!  There is sanding dust and paint dust and metal dust everywhere!  Uggh!  Got to hate yard periods.   Hopefully just a week or two more to go though and we will be back in the water!

Yesterday I bought a new vacuum cleaner for our house because we are going to bring our old one to work to use outside on the deck, but when we plugged the new one in it blew the master fuse in the house!    Something's definitely wrong with that...  I'm going to take it back today and try to explain that it's broken in English to Greek speaking sales assistants.  Wish me luck!  Actually most people speak a bit of English here... one of the reasons I haven't gotten past the basics of Greek myself yet.  I'd rather be learning Spanish... Greek is so hard!

Anyway, on to craftier things...

One more thing... Barbara at Little Miss Muffet Stamps has prizes this month! Click on the New Release picture on the right hand side of my sidebar to see how you could win!

I have a brand spanking new Wryn to show with you today!  Yay!  I'm loving Wryn in all her guises.  This wee Wryn is called Super Spy.




































































How cool is she?!  I have coloured Wryn with copics (see pic below) and added shine to her glasses.  The journalling tag is from October Afternoon as is the blue paper.  The printed paper is by Simple Stories.  The crochet flower is one of mine.  The brads are by My Mind's Eye and Crate Paper.  The felt flower is from Sew Sweet.  The buttons are from my stash.  The sentiment stamps are from The Greeting Farm and Tim Holtz.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Love to Create: Anything Goes
Squigglefly: Handmade flowers
Lia Stamps: Anything Goes plus a sentiment
Card and Scrap: Seams and stitching

Here's a close-up of our wee Spy girl:
























And here are the copics I used:



















Have a lovely day!

All you'll need to do in the shop is plug the vacuum cleaner into the nearest outlet ;) - that'll get there attention asap.

Loving your work.
