WOYWW - 30.03.11

  
Hi Everyone !!!

So Wednesday again and time to give you all a peek of my Work Space for WOYWW.

There's not much going on at the moment: 


I decided to give my Copics a rest today and do some colouring with my Prismacolor Pencils instead.  I got this great digi image from KennyK Downloads

Here is a picture of little Erin.  She still has her ear infection, but it is getting better.  She hates having her ear drops twice a day bless her, but she is soooo good !!!!


Before you go, why don't you check out the CANDY available on my blog at the moment - you can find Simon's Candy Post HERE !!!!

Thanks for stopping by - I've got my coffee and I'm off to be nosey now!!!!

Hi Everyone

Wednesday again time for WOYWW!!!!

I've got a day off work today so I've decided to have a creative day - well I hope that's what it turns out to be LOL!!!!

So here's my workspace:


I decided to have a messy time and got out some Alcohol Inks.  I wonder how it will turn out?

Here are some Kitty Kat photos.  Poor Erin has an ear infection and has to have ear drops twice a day, so she is feeling a little sorry for herself.


May this hug from Thomas will cheer her up!!!



So, I'm off to make some more mess, then later I'm going to have a nosey at all the other workspaces out there.
