Two get well cards and WOYWW

Last night was the first meeting of the Craft Group for this year.   There were 10 us altogether and everyone had a good catch up and help and inspiration was flying back and forth.   I got nothing done myself as I was helping my YS fiancée to sort out some of knitting problems and admire what she had been doing since I had last see her.

WOYWW – 86 is the first picture for this week, a bit late but I did take it first thing.  (Been busy doing some Spring Cleaning this morning so wasn’t able to post up earlier.)

WOYWW - 86 (26-01-11)


There is a card I have just finished and probably wants an insert and the box of letter stamps is placed on top of a cheapo notebook I am using as a sort of art journal/diary/ challenge reminder book.   I have been meaning to do the altering thing on it but haven’t taken the plunge yet but discovered my alphabet stamps and thought I might just get around to it , especially as ES has said I can pinch some of his brown paper.   The prefered stuff for covering books for those of us old enough to remember that yearly school chore.    There are quite a few stamps scattered around which probably all need cleaning before putting away.   I’m not as organised as some and just tend to discard them where ever until I get a moment or two.   Few items in my poly pencil-case as I was at a workshop last week and am now working out of there until they are returned to their rightful places.

The next two photos are of get well cards which were asked for by a friend.   She particularly wanted ones for men but as most crafters know card for men are notoriously difficult to do , so I have struggled a bit , but on balance she did buy one of them and my only lady’s get well card !!

Mans get well card


The core-dinations card was embossed with my big shot and the coloured dotty paper was from a friend over at Docrafts..   The image is one I have had for a while and is from Creative Stamping and has a 2005 date on it.   I have embossed with WOW platinum powder and have hand written the sentiment with a Marvy pen.


Another get well card


This second card uses scraps of card I found in my bit box and is stamped using a stamp from Hero Arts and has a copyright date on it of 2001 – I didn’t think I had been stamping that long! – and the ink pad is one from Memories called ‘Primary Rainbow’.    It is quite hard to use but you get an interesting effect.   The other stamp was a free one from The Stamper magazine and I have use a pretty blue embossing powder I have had ages.

This is all for today .    Happy Crafting

    There are quite a few interesting bits and pieces to snoop at on your desk today.
    That spotty dog stamp looks really cute and I like the look of the one with the treble clef!

    Great cards, good variety. But what’s up with the spring cleaning, already?

  9. Susan Allan says:

    Do you know what I think? We all know that men’s cards are tricky but we forget, most men are gardeners and so will adore butterflies, flowers and birds. I am sure that is true. My better half has a birthday this week and as he loves spiders guess what will be on his card from me!!!!!!!!!!!!

    About journaling, yes, sometimes it is better to have a clean white space as your starting point…I agree with you and sometimes I need blank pages too.

    Have a lovely week

    Great desk Tricia and fun cards too, mens cards are so tricky. I’m sure your cat will get used to her new situation given a bit of time too.

    Hello Tricia, love your spring border banner – such a cheering sight at this time of the year. Enjoyed my snoop round your desk and that pink card looks lovely. The two get well cards are great too. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your kind comment about my messy worktop. Elizabeth x #60

    The rosette card is so simple in its style, really fresh and pretty, and I also love the little card with the treble clef.

  14. I love the card with the rose/rosette on it. It is gorgeous. And cleaning is always good, especially when you’re a neat freak like me. I have some stamps dated 2001, too, but I didn’t start my altered art journey till 2003. So mine were old when I bought them. Just trying to provide you with an excuse (grin). Sorry I didn’t make it by last week and I’m late again this week. Happy belated WOYWW from #10.
