WOYWW 380

It's Wednesday again, time to gather at Julia's for WOYWW - week 380

After the flurry of Seth inspired activity of the last week, it's gone a bit quieter here. but Seth is still in my head (as it were) - and made it onto a birthday card
 I may have to cover up the 50 (it's for my boss) as an early card arrived at work the other day with a big 50 on and it wasn't a huge hit... so we'll see (it's stuck too well to get them off without ruining the card)  - although I did tell her that numbers will be appearing on my card for her!
this is my floor space today, another journal mop up in progress, with some of Seth's Impression Obsession stamps getting an inking...

no close ups yet as I am not sure where it's heading right now..

I am off to Ally Pally (Alexandra Palace) to the stamp show on Saturday - perhaps there will be some deskers there?  You can guess which stand I'll be at mostly, I am sure!
and the week after that, it's Port Sunlight and Happy Stampers... we'll see if I manage to resist temptation at either or both of those shows!
(edit.. as Chris has rightly reminded me, there is a gap of an extra week before Port Sunny, time to get paid again though!)

The 50 is quite small so you might get away with it! Looking forward to seeing you at Ally Pally - yes I do know where you will be because so will I!! BTW it's two whole weeks to Port Sunny!! Big Hugs, Chrisx

Caz said...

I can't say what number I am yet!! Just showing Ian your "crafting Space" and how it makes my space look relatively small but I don't think he's convinced!!
Card looks good...amazing what you can use Seth's stencils/masks for!
Looking at the WOYWW 26th November date and wondering if I can make it this year......
Happy WOYWW

If you have time Helen, the cards made from these new SI think I could use a couple of these sets to really good effect. Buy a set as your Christmas Present top yourself!!!Stampers Anon stamps and stencils are really impressive on the TH video.

Oh I do envy you Ally Pally and port Sunlight one thing I miss living in Spain are the craft fairs. I am very limited as to where I can buy craft materials from as so many companies do not deliver here and if they do goods don't always arrive.

Great crafting space. Hope your boss is more interested in the thought behind the card rather then the number on it. Have fun at yout craft fairs and thank heavens for that extra week. Have a great week. Vickie #10

Hoping to get to Port Sunny even with a hot water bottle on my back.
I had to miss my Seth Apter workshop - don't mention it, I could still cry about it.
Love the card you show us at the top, you certainly have got the layering under your belt.
Fab work and thanks for the visit.
Hugs, Neet xx

Hi Helen, great that you will be at Port Sunny. All being well we'll see you there! I think I may have trouble getting those parrots, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xxx

AliWade said...

Happy WOYWW. Great card and I didn't even notice the 50 until you mentioned it. I always panic that I will get a 'big birthday' wrong and put a number on a card when I am a year out! Enjoy your crafty days out. Always wanted to go to those shows - but I would also want to have won the Lottery too, so I could just buy everything! Ali x #31

Angela Radford said...

Hi Helen, I wish I could go to the shows but it's probably better that I don't though we do have a few coming up a bit closer. Stamp Magic and Newark in October, and then there will be the NEC which will be here before we know it. Love your Seth style card too. The 50 is only little so I he will hardly notice Lol! Have a great woyww, Angela x 19

Vicky Fisher said...

What a fab card!!! Have fun this weekend, I'm counting down for a fair next Wednesday. And if I finish that drip page I definitely will show you, thx for visiting me, Vicky

LisaDV said...

Lovely card. I had to look to find the 50 after you mentioned it. I didn't even see it in the aweing over the mixed media goodness. Have fun at the stamp show. Happy Wednesday. LisaDV #37

Sharon Koole said...

Very pretty card! Have fun at the show. I should have stayed another couple weeks lol. I think hubby had enough of me being gone - seven weeks is a long time!

Felicia Aaron said...

Helen, I ALWAYS love visiting your desk for the shear envy of all your products! I really like the card for your boss....too bad the 50 is an issue! I WELCOMED 50 and was mighty thankful for it! LOLOL I'm pea green about your next stamping show visits, wish I could tag along, although the temptation would probably be TOOOO GREAT! LOLOL Happy WOYWW! Blessings, Felicia #42

Hi Helen.
Thanks or your very early visit. It has been really precious to find so many comments from people.
You do enjoy going around to all the shows, don't you...Won't be at Ally Pally - wouldn't know where to start going to London. But I'm not that far from Port Sunlight... do you have to have tickets or can you just turn up? I know I went with a friend many years ago, and it's not that big a venue, is it.
Lots going on in your space today - hope you manage to pull everything together.
Take care. God bless.

Oh dear. And oh well, it's a subtle fifty! and also, hey, what the hell, I'm quite proud of being my age and I'm no oil painting to brag about! It's a great card, isn't it lovely when your enjoy something so much that it percolates through all your art. Not going to either show, tbh, had completely overlooked Ally Pally! have fun at the Pa stand!!

BJ said...

Well I didn't notice the "50" 'till you mentioned it but really love the bluey green and the wording of the card. Thanks for visiting me rather late entry, BJ#46

That's a really fabulous card, Helen! I never understand why people hate their ages ~ we should be so grateful because what's the alternative, lol! Great mop up WIP, too! I hope you had a blast at Ally Pally!! (BTW, I figured out how to follow you by adding your URL to my blog list, but I may not show up in your thumbnails.) Hugs, Darnell
