WOYWW - Hanging my head in shame.

Good morning all the beautiful people out there. It is Wednesday today isn't it? Things go by in such a blur lately, I am never sure what day of the week it is. I have been sick at home with Bronchial Pneomonia (again!, so frustrating!!!), but that meant that I had lots of time to play, so that is my excuse for the absolute embarassing mess you see on my desk this week. Even the floor looks terrible! On the floor you will see the new paper that I bought yesterday - I know, I really need more paper don't I? On the right, under the box of ink pads and on top of my back up cutter, you will see the bag with coloured images that I found when moving my room. I am determined not to stop making cards untill all are gone. Made a good dent too - current card count is 12!
Here is the first one I am showing you today. I recieved this stamped image as part of a RAK about 3 years ago (could be longer), loved it and coloured immediately. It just never made it onto a card. Papers are all from my scrapbox. Cardstock is Bazzil and lace and bling trim are from my stash.

I found these images too and remembered I had a lot of Fabscraps paper left over from a class I taught years ago, so out came the paper and the fun began. I made a total of 9 cards and decided to make a gift box for 6. Dp is Fabscraps, Cardstock is Bazzil, Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (LOVE that store!!!) and some from my stash. Sentiment stamp is from WOJ.

The cards all follow the same sketch. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the butterfly border and added some bling to the bodies. Ribbon is from my stash. Images were coloured (ages ago) with my beloved Copics.

I made matching envelopes too. (told you I am on a roll!) Used the same MS punch and some of the butterflies from the cards to decorate them. Quite pleased with myself this week for getting so much done.

Please remember Cindy in your prayers. She has lost all her hair and is now sporting the most wonderful wig. Still being the lady she has always been and fighting the good fight with courage and dignity.

Have a great week and don't forget to visit the rest of the WOYWWers at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com

  9. I wish you felt better, but at least you got some lovely cards made. I especially love the "amazing" card.

    Sorry to read about your friend. I wish her the best in her struggle to stay strong.

    Of course you are my friend. I'm so glad your teacher found a bit of help from my classes. Thanks for sending her my way. Still #9 (grin).

  11. It is always fun to find colored images ready to go and then get on a roll with them. You've done a fabulous job. That is an impressive goal to use them all up (considering how many you've already done). No apologies needed for a crafty mess, we all love it (and have one of our own).

  14. Ach Tertia, BP, how grim for you, I hope you're feeling a little better...I think you'll find that tidying up whilst poorly is AGAINST THE LAW, so just crack on gently with using up the toppers..you're doing well. Sending Cindy a gentle squeeze...it's a high price to pay to get rid of the hag hairs that you suddenly find on your chinny chin chin when you get to 40something, huh! I have a chum here going through the same, honestly, I didn't recognise her last week under her new hair!

  18. Sorry you have not been feeling too well, and hopefully you will soon be much better, but at least you did some lovely cards. My UFO's are all in a box next to my desk and I am being very hard on myself and just ploughing through them one by one as I come to it - no sorting or pushing anything to the bottom again. Thank you for visiting, and I am not always anywhere near as tidy. Have a good week. xx Maggie #11

  19. Take care of yourself. Your cards are lovely. I've spotted that butterfly edge punch..... but have resisted so far.

    I hope your friend continues the fight.
