WOYWW

Good Morning WOYWW ers, and note I've said morning yes I am off work this week and thought I'd start my Chrimbo cards and am probably the only person wishing for rubbish weather so I can stay indoors without an pangs of guilt, and as I type the heavens have opened, looks like the washing will be on the maiden in the conservatory today and the weeds in the garden will just have to stay a little while longer ROFL.

I thought I had all the time in the world having a week off, but it's Wednesday already and I've only managed to do three 8x8 cards (two pics below and the one on my desk), and a couple of 6x6. May have to make a mammoth amount and try to sell as manay as I can, as DD has been selected as one of the West Yorkshire Guides to go on an International Trip next summer and we have to fund raise approx £1700. Am feeling very nervous about it as DD is so laid back she's horizontal, and so not organised, have to open a bank account and keep the accounts as have to present them after the trip, can feel a panic attack coming on, lol. But must also add am very very proud of her and any ideas gratefully received.

Phew! well now that's off my chest back to my desk, there's the same old stuff lingering, but it's as I left it yesterday afternoon and just got to mount the card onto an 8x8 card blank, actually it's quite messy for me, usually tidy away, think the stems from crafting in the kitchen and having to tidy everything away when I'd finished.

Yes Anne I know about the clear Timmy stamps, they have been on Inkylicious web site for a few weeks, (sorry peeps, just talk amongst yourself for a minute, no credit on phone so cannot reply to texts and apart from walking the dog not left the house since Saturday, lazy mare arn't I), you know me, no restraint will buy them all and think about the consequences later, but DD still needs some curtains, so may have to have a little train journey tomorrow, without OH, LOL.

Well have a lovely Wednesday all and don't forget to drop in on Julia, xxxx

Gorgeous cards as always Tracey and gorgeous images, where are they from?
Well done to DD. If I think of anything I'll let you know. Don't be nervous I'm sure things will be fine.
No silver motifs on my desk :-? There is a stencil (with flamey kind of design) on top of some greasproof paper and the greaseproof paper which I've used as tracing paper has a design on.
Yes I've found out that when you don't work you don't have as much time as you think hehe

Serendipity Stamping said...

Very cute cards, where did you get the images? Congrats to your DD. Things will come together, had a son in similar situation. Here in the States some of the churchs help a little towards the funding.

Julia Dunnit said...

Cute cards! My DD is the same. I've sorta cured her by making her realise that I won't do it, even if not doing it makes my teeth itch. Late last year she missed out on a great trip with friends because she thought I'd cave in at the last minute and do it...she subconciusly asssumes I'm the safety net for this sort of thing...it was tough love, I must say!

I know I am really late this week, but I was glad I made it by to see Christmas cards being made while I'm sweating my - - - - off. Can't get in the spirit of it, I guess. But glad you are enjoying your time off because I'm so late getting here it's almost time to go back to work. So talk about how time flies!
