WOYWW 164 - Thursday!!!!!

Hi all, yep this is a mega late woyww, I'm afraid yesterday I was busy packing for the kids as they have gone off to their dads for 8 days, then yesterday afternoon I was totally lost, I couldn't do anything, everyone is saying I need the break because of everything that has been happening but I felt lost.
I had took a picture for woyww (the most addictive craft event every week hosted by Julia), I was just about to start crafting and thought, maybe I could get away with doing it today, so I hope that's ok lol.

Some bits and bobs I have got out for a card and tag 
with a steampunk theme.

Trying to do red hair on a Kraftin Kimmie stamp, I am planning
to do this in steampunk style hence the patterned paper from
Graphic 45, the stamp has roses all along the bottom so
I thought it would match nicely but trying to do red hair is a nightmare.
If anyone can help I use pro and flex markers and as you can
see, the pile to your left under the stamp are bin fodder trys lol.
Also two new pads as well on the desk :-)

I have one more pic, this is of today what I'm about to start, I have left the colouring until tomorrow as I was getting frustrated, so now I have decided to have some inky play, it's summer over at the stampman and the challenge finishes this evening (better late then never lol).

Right I shall be off seems this is an ultra late post lol, thank you all for your kind comments I really do appreciate everyone of them, also a huge welcome to my new followers.
I also finished the project I had on my desk last week which was the steampunk trellis which you can fine on this post.  Hope you all have a fantastic crafty week, Happy woyww :-) Kerry xxx

Crafting is the best therapy - I used to use it to escape the pressures of work. Enjoy every minute of your time to yourself. Pop into my blog and have a go at guessing the scarves in the rainbow!! x Jo

This might be the first time I've visited you - I decided to start from the bottom tonight and only visit people that it doesn't show as I've seen before.........
Great looking desk! I can't colour red hair either so if you get some good advice, can you blog it please :-)
Hope you settle down to some quality me time while your kids are away to help you not miss them too much. I used to be a single mum and used to hate the time my kids were at their dad's!!
Happy Crafting

Hi Kerry,
I've only just found your WOYWW post sorry. As you can imagine life is pretty hectic here this week. Lots of steaming dresses and last minute plans etc We had wedding rehearsal tonight and so far so good as they say.
Hope you will enjoy your 'me time'.
Biggest hugs,
A x

Hello Kezzy,
It's the first time I've visited you I think...I thought after visiting everyone who pops by my place I'd start at the back of the WOYWWer's list...and there you are ;D
It sounds like you've been having a rough time lately but I hope that some 'me' time crafting helps.
Forget the usual jobs and chores...go for eight days of indulgence!!! You can do's allowed. You ask any of the WOYWW gang!
Oh yes...ahem...onto your desk! It certainly looks a busy creative place where fun can go to it girl!
Belated Happy WOYWW ~ I'm glad to have visited. Hope to see you again soon ;D

I'm not playing this week, but wanted to stop by and say hello. I hope you find solace in your "down time" and find a way to relax and enjoy crafting.

Sorry to hear you are going through some tough times. Hope you can take the time away from your kids to recharge and get some crafting done. Looks like you have some projects to work on.
