WOYWW 428

Hi, fellow deskers..  that week went quick, I can't believe it's Wednesday again already!   Time for another WOYWW  with Julia

The wedding last Thursday was fantastic, we had a really good evening.  (if anyone loves a good wedding, even of total strangers, the pics from the evening are here ) which I wrote and published at 1.30 in the morning.. as you do!  but the bride and groom did see the post before they went to bed and loved the photos, so that was lovely to hear!
Here's a quick photo of the happy couple with his work colleagues!
l to r Kirsty, Monica, me, Lesley, Kelsie, Joshua, Phil, James, Jo (James' girlfriend) Kerryn (married to) Shaun. For some reason Phil's girlfriend isn't in the photo...

I don't have a desk/floor photo to show this week as it has nothing on it (except a new SD card for my camera which is really boring!)   so I'll share the 21st birthday card I made for my nephew's 21st birthday which is this week (he won't see this so it's safe to share)

the card base is by Craftwork Cards, and I used some of Elena's monster stamps for Paperartsy
I coloured the images with a mixture of distress oxides and Stabilo felt tip pens
The monster house was stamped onto distress oxide coloured book paper although I added so many layers of distress oxide the book text has disappeared now.

I will have new stuff to share next week though, as I am off to the Stamperama show at Stevenage on Sunday so will no doubt find something I "must" have (and will be getting a gelli plate after last week's workshop!)

It's nice to get things done while they are fresh in the mind. I used to do that at work, writing up the minutes from the board meeting straight away as I didn't understand half of it anyway. Talk about winging it haha.
Those monster stamps are so cute.

Lovely wedding photos! and don't you look good - smashing outfit.
You will have a few 'late' nights with your Gelli plate, I love using mine - the beauty of it is .... if you make too many masterboards, you can go over them again to change them!
Look forward to seeing your creations.
Have a good week

Elizabeth said...

Hi Helen, lovely wedding photos and you looked perfectly lovely. We love a wedding but the younger generation in the family don't give us much opportunity as so few of them have got married! The birthday card is fabulous - love the stamps, and the colouring. Have a great week and I look forward to seeing what you just had to have at the Stamperama. Elizabeth x #28

Plush Possum Studio said...

What a handsome looking gathering! And a very happy day, too, no doubt. I'm glad I got to see your post - something pressing had to be shelved for a few days, so I am blessed with an extra chance to visit my fellow deskers. i like the whimsical look of your fun card.

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm so late! I loved your wedding pics, bet the bride and groom were thrilled to have some so soon after the event! I am drawn to wedding pics, even of total strangers. I dont know if it's my inherent nosiness or a subliminal desire to see happy people! Hope your nephews 21st was great fun for him..super card, love the overdose of Distress Osides!

BJ said...
