WOYWW 153

Not quite on my workdesk, but on my work tray!  Here's one of the cards I made from all the glittery sparkly silver stuff last week.  I kept it plain and simple - this is the "Thank you for the invite card" and the actual wedding card will be shown later.  I now have another wedding coming up soon so that's another card to make.
 Look what arrived in the post for me yesterday!  Aren't they so gorgeous!!!  It was a competition I'd entered and forgotten about - chemobrain again!
Here's part of my work bed - one clever lady Laura spotted the rainbow coloured image on my previous WOYWW so here are the ones I've completed ready for the animal charity Summer Fayre.  They are called "Scrapito" and I admit to having had them for a while, so I thought it was about time I made them all up.  They are confusing when you first read the instructions, but once you've done that, it all makes sense - believe me!  There was enough items in the card to make three complete cards, however with my crafty head on I realised I could make something with the negative images too so I made another three cards.  If there's a way, I'll find it!

Also a BIG BIG BIG THANK YOU to Gill, she sends me cards regularly for the cancer charities and has now made some fantastic cards for the animal shelter too, most of which are animal related!  I took a huge big box over to them the other day and they were delighted!  "Are they all for us?" the lady asked, "Yes, 100% of what you make is yours to keep, these are donated from me and my crafty friends!".  They also loved the hand crocheted blankets (slowed down now due to a lack of wool sadly) and are going to sell them at the Summer Fayre too which is nice to know.

Well, I'm off to the hospital again today - this time it's not for me though - so I can relax and go to the Coffee Shop!

Enjoy WOYWW!
