ATC Swap for WOYWW

 What a lovely week it's been with happy (and beautiful) mail dropping through the door for the WOYWW 13th Anniversary ATC swap.

The theme was Connections, and here are some of my ATC's that I sent out, but more importantly... are the beauties I received during the week!

Thank you so much for these gorgeous little works of art - they will be treasured - and I think a couple are still on their way so more happy mail to come!

There has been no crafting going on this week but we did do a trip to Exbury Gardens, which is about a 5 minute drive from where we live - I just had to visit the Wisteria while it was in full bloom!  We were early enough to be the only ones there, so we were able to enjoy our flask of coffee on the bench inside it without ending up in anyone else's photos!  

I'm linking up with Julia over at WOYWW this week


  1. Oh Diana, that wisteria is lovely, how lucky to be there early and have the place to yourselves. What a difference it makes when you can take a photo like that without lots of people on.
    Lovely atc's to show all the friendships made possible by woyww and thank you for your lovely one and the card and die cut outs you sent. You have some beautiful dies, I will use them before too long I am sure.
    Have a lovely week ahead, whether crafting or not, sometimes it does one good to have a week away from the table.
    Hugs, Neet 4 xx

  2. Thanks for your lovely ATC and enclosed bits and bobs - beautiful work. We have had some lovely ones haven't we?. That wisteria is awesome - and a perfect spot to sit and enjoy it. xx Jo

  3. Wow, look at that glorious wisteria, it’s so beautiful! A purple version of the laburnham tunnel at Bodnant gardens. Your ATCs are gorgeous, I loved the details and colours!

  5. Oh that wisteria is gorgeous. So are your atcs , in and out ! Happy woyww Helen #2

  6. Oh definitely the year for Wisterias, ours has been full on this year as noted by me for the times I've had to sweep up the path it being festooned with purple petals (which soon go brown) the scent of the blooms is gorgeous too.
    Love your ATCs the touch of the postage stamp and the weaving of the plants round the houses, super. Happy WOYWW BJ#13

    PS just popped a link on Julia's FB post about email blogger problems- silly me ought to have popped it here... there you go. I'm still trying to work out why some of my comments aren't showing?????

  7. I really loved your ATC so thanks for swapping. I love wisterias...ours was a picture this year.

  9. Oh Diana that Wisteria was well worth the journey. Love your ATCs both sent and received! Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #3

  10. Hi Diana, I love Wisteria but sadly the flowers don't last very long and now we have the sweeping up to do but it's been worth it. I have a lilac one and a pink one too. I have to say your ATC is gorgeous again, I love the little die cuts and the stamps are the perfect touch. Wishing you a very happy woyww with hugs, Angela xXx

  11. Your ATC turned out so pretty, I love how they are all just a little different from one another, makes them special :)
    Wow that wisteria is gorgeous, so nice you could really enjoy it!

  12. Hello Diana! Thank you so much for your visit - it was lovely to hear from you! Your ATC's are sunning - I love how you colour matched the postage stamps on each one! I believe we visited Exbury Gardens while we were in Hampshire on holiday in 2016! I might even have some photos of us sitting on that same bench! Also, I'm pretty sure my Blogger profile photo was taken in those gardens! I just love Wisteria - we have one in the garden on a climbing frame and it's a bit late bringing flowers this year but they're coming through! Wishing you a lovely week! xx zsuzsa #19

  13. I love your ATC's! Very creative! And that Wisteria! I've often thought how lovely it would be to have a pergola with Wisteria hanging down, so beautiful. It must have been such an awesome feeling being there on your own! Thanks for you visit, Lindart #26

  14. That wisteria is stunning, the ATCs you made a lovely and love the colourful ATCs you received . I have never been to Exbury gardens but you never know. Take care and stay safe,
