WOYWW 430

Good afternoon all,

I am enjoying my WOYWW touring all your lovely desks and seeing how creative you all are.  I feel like the nursery school kid tagging along with the big kids!  Everyone has to start somewhere though 😏.  My desk has had a busy bank holiday weekend!



Last week I had die cut and stamped a lot of baby clothes ready to make into cards.  Sad to say, I binned all the girl clothes, as they didn't look right.  I did put together the bones of one card.  You can see it in the centre of the pic balancing on the keyboard.  It's not finished, as again, it doesn't look quite right.  It may be confined to the UFO box for a while!  I did manage to finish one baby boy card but nothing to do with the clothes line!

To the left of my desk is my little drawer that holds all my sticky pads, and glue dots.  Under that is a pink photo album, where I have images of all my stamps (well not quite all, it is a work-in-progress).  There are 3 white cones with some green foil, which at some point is a little project for me and my grandsons for Christmas.  To the right is the embossing folder and flower stamp I used on the retirement card, and the packet of baby clothes dies/stamps.  Next to the green mat is a new die that I bought last week when Mr M took me to Inspirations after my hospital appointment.  They have a little coffee lounge where he reads the news, while I browse to my hearts content.  I used the die cut on the pink card (close up below) which is for a lovely lady at work who is retiring tomorrow.  I haven't finished putting it all together, but you get the idea of what it should look like.  It's on pink pearlescent card, I added the black leaf scroll from the new die, and pink pearlescent flowers that I have added black glitter to the middle.  I hope she will like it.




I'll be back soon for my tour of your workspaces.  Please leave a comment when you stop by, I do love to read them.  Have a lovely afternoon. Heather x

  1. Hi Heather. That's going to be a lovely card - well done. The pink and the black are so striking together. I love your statement about tagging along with the big kids - believe me when I say that is how most of us feel. But the truth is we all have different creativity - yours is great too!
    Take care. God bless.

  3. Hi Heather the pink and black card is gorgeous, and I'm not normally a pink person, lol. Smiled about the baby cards- how often does what we produce end up looking nothing like the idea we started with? Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz#3 XxX

  9. Hi Heather, I love the drama the black adds to that card under construction a great deal :) and yep, If I knew then what I know now (about how many stamps that would eventually follow me home I would have split my unmounted sets from the get go, I broke up the wood mounted ones years ago ( taking sentiments away from the images) Thanks for the earlier visit, ~Stacy #37

  10. The card looks finished to me. I love the stark black against the pale pink - quite a dramatic effect.
