WOYWW 93

Wow Peeps!  Where did that week go then? 

I cannot believe how quickly this last week has gone.  It is now officially past the "Hump" and now it is downhill to the weekend!

So as it be Wednesday it is time for WOYWW.  If you don't know what on earth I am on about just click HERE and you will be whisked to the desk of Julia - the Queen of WOYWW where lots of other fellow crafters have put our desks on view for other nosey crafters.

Here is my desk this week.....

As you can see I am still working on the Wedding Invitations having been "naughty" and have wandered off to play with my projects which you may see on previous postings. 

I have now cut out all the card pieces, including corner rounding small pieces of card (1 3/4 x 2 3/4) on all four corners, and embossing all the white pieces of card, 70 butterflies cut (with the help of my Darling Hubby) and all text boxes cut and printed. 

My aim tonight is to ink the edges of the text boxes for the evening invites (already done the day invites), and then adhere 5 foam pads to the reverse of them all.  Then I can play with my new toy which arrived today. 

Big smile when I opened my post box tonight to find my Bigz L Die for cutting my own tags!  I only have one proper sized tag which I have been using as a guide for cutting out my own.  NOW I can make as many as I want to and they will all be exactly the same size!!!  Yippee. 

I also thought I would show you some cards I made last night and used some of my new Colour Washes on!  Bought them - gotta justify spending the money!!  That way Hubby cannot nag me about spending my pennies.  (Haa Haa!!!)  

This weekend I have three birthdays for which I need cards so when this happens I try to make a few spares for the ones I may forget! 


I will put more details on tomorrow's post as one of them I have made with Hels' Sunday Stampers Challenge in mind - Brown is this week's theme.


Well, that's all folks.  Off to look at some other WOYWW desks.

Please feel free to leave me a message!  I always look forward to reading them.

Your cards are so lovely I can see you need a little break when you are working on a big project. Would love to see the invites when finished. Lovely to see how you have used the colour wash.

Sherry Edwards said...

Your tag cards look great too.

I LOVE your tag cards- great design. I also try & make a few of whatever I do- like you I always forget some birthdays!

RosC said...

Thanks for coming to look at my place Hettie. I really like the cards you've done, and I must say I rather enjoy doing "process" work on a number of things. Usually it's my Christmas cards but I intend to do make 5 or 6 cards for each one that I design. That's this year's resolution - so far, not lived up to it. You inspire me.

I was quite sure I had already left a message on your blog, but the brain has obviously gone walkabout again. I love all your butterflies - you can never have too many butterlies, even if it only to cover up changes (mistakes) in a nearly finished card. Thank you for your visit to me and your kind comment there. It is much appreciated.

Your cards are beautiful. Will we get to see the finished product of the evening invites? Hope so. TFS

karen said...

I soooooo love these cards! They are beautiful and so interesting to look at with so many different pieces. And yet all the pieces integrate perfectly. I hope you don't mind if I borrow the idea of the torn out notebook page, that is so wonderful!
Thanks for visiting me! Sorry it took me so long to get over here!
xoxo Karen

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh you've been busy! I'm so late that I've admired your canvas too - great stuff. Love the butterfly die you're using on the invites.

Nicky said...

Good luck with all the invites I have finished mine for my friend now - love your cards you have made - Happy Belated WOYWW - Nicky

Morti said...

Great work on your desk - looking forward to seeing the finished invites!
