WOYWW 195 - Thank You bloggers...

As usual, I can't believe a week has passed and its Wednesday already?! Time to pop along and join Julia at Stamping Ground for the weekly desk nose.

I am heading back to work next week it seems (already?!) and I felt it was appropriate that I thank Julia for WOYWW. Why? I hear you ask...well the blogging craft community has kept me and my little blog company for the last month or so and I've made some new virtual friends (Alison, Ria, Sandee, Darnell to name a few) they have provided tips, feedback and affirmation that I am not mad (hmm, well not fully).

So thank you to everyone that visits my blog on a regular basis and not just on a Weds.

Back to business before we get all desk is exactly as I left it last night.

What can you see?

At the front and centre is a nearly finished card (needs to have the button stuck down), to the left of the card is the rejected Candi from the main card..they sparked an idea and I quickly laid it out before going to bed, so I didn't forget :) to the right is the next card waiting to be made - in the same layout as the main card. I keep the 'sister' card makings nearby, so I can change it up as I am making the first that weird?! It makes sense to me, as I make 2 of everything. Right at the back on the right you can just see my WIP Mother's Day card. My watch seems to be there - I am assuming I got frustrated at having it on and took it off?! My glasses, a trusty pencil, some birthday sentiments and the usual bits and bobs lying around. You can also see a very small part of my well organised collection of flowers (there are more, many, many more..)

So as I've given you a small glimpse of it, here is  the card I finally settled on for my Ma, it's not finished yet it's a WIP, but I thought I'd share it, as you can see it on my desk..

I like it, I had to return JT's butterfly punch, but will be borrowing it again following our Saturday playdate. It might be time to invest in the same one.

Anyway Happy WOYWW, I'm off to have a nose about, before spending the rest of the day getting Mother's Day ready to upload to the website.



  1. Great card, Love the colours they work so well together x Happy WOYWW Heather #85

  2. What a beautiful card!! Such pretty butterflies. Have a good day. helen, 8

  3. I can't believe you are having to return to work so soon do you think you might find time to visit a few blogs on a wednesday just to keep your hand in and to stay in touch?
    I love the card you have made for your mum. I adore butterflies and I think they add so much to a project. This card is made with lovely colours that all work so well together and I am sure your mum is going to be thrilled with it.
    Happy WOYWW hope you have a great day

  4. Hi Claire. I must get a wiggle on with Mothers' Day myself! Your flurry of butterflies look lovely. WOYWW Hugs to you from Helen 120

  5. Love the butterfly usage! You'll be borrowing that punch again you say...?

  6. LOVE the Mother's Day card, might need to use that butterfly idea for one of my cards, it's so pretty! Speaking of pretty, love the flower box, wouldn't mind poking around in there! lol Thanks for the shout out, haven't been visitng too many peeps last week since Jamie was visiting, but I'm back to normal activity now! woo hoo! Thanks so much for visiting my desk today!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  7. Hey ladies, thanks for your lovely comments. Despite the return to work, I will be keeping up with WOYWW, just back to Tuesday night posts instead of 'live action' Weds AM ones.. :) - My Ma, who is now viewing my blog likes the card too LOL! Happy WOYWW. Cx

  8. Hi... thanks for stopping by earlier, although not sure if you meant the message for one of the Helens instead LOL... Love your desk, what a great selection of flowers... Your mothers day card is so pretty and elegant too... Happy WOYWW Gill x #104

    1. Oops! Sorry Gill - it's easily done with all the WOYWWer's to visit. Thought you'd like the flowers. Cx

  9. Hello, love your flowers organisation. Mine are all piled together in a box (I dig through them when I need one)
    Great idea to make two cards similar ( but different ie colour scheme)
    Shame your going back to work. Will miss you if you don't get here as often.
    Happy WOYWW

  10. Lovely colourful desk, I have a thing for flowers, actually I have a thing for most things crafty, lol! Very pretty card.

  11. hi there I first noticed your flower storage - a good idea I might have to invest in :-) the butterfly card is so pretty. Happy WOYWW Anne x #87

  12. Hey ladies, thanks for the nice comments the flower storage is a 4l really useful box with x2 hobby trays, I have 3 of these full of flowers, stars, bows, googly eyes and hearts! Cx

  13. I try to make at least 2 of every card as well - one for them - one for me. Now when I go gift shopping it's one for them - two for me. ;-) April #151
