WOYWW 577

Time to welcome one and all to WOYWW for another desk share day -  as ever the week  has completely whizzed by but I still can't be bothered to try the new blogger  - perhaps if I ignore it long enough it will just go away!

I had a panic on Tuesday morning when I realised I didn't have a birthday card ready to send to my cousin who's birthday is Thursday, the day before mine (we're a year apart)  so I had to make a card before work to get it in the post

I used one of the Paperartsy hares that was already stamped out I just had to add some colour and layer it onto a card mount.  Super speedy and thankfully I remembered to photograph it before sticking the envelope down!
In hindsight I don't like the colours I used but it was too late to re-do it so it had to go!

I've still been getting a lift to and from work, but have booked a time slot at Kew for Saturday morning so will be getting the train and test out travelling in public again!  I am so looking forward to it; after all these weeks.  I was going to keep it secret till I got there and posted some photos but I have had some more problems with my phone this week (thankfully sorted again, replacement battery seems to have worked...) so just in case I'll tell you now!  
Till next week, happy WOYWW and look out for flower photos! 




I'll leave you with tonight's quite subtle sunset

Morning Helen. I found myself smiling broadly as soon as your page opened up - I just love that hare!!! Have a great birthday on Friday - and such a lovely birthday treat - a time out in Kew!!! You couldn't have asked for a nicer way to celebrate.
Take care. Stay safe. God bless.

Wow a card made before work, I like the colours and the jolly hare. Enjoy your birthday and the visit to Kew looking forward to seeing the photos. Ani

Nice hare card, CAS was what you intended wasn't it (wink wink)? In fact I like CAS cards most of all, something about the white card does it for me.
Good to see you are off to Kew, just don't do too much walking about if it is hot. We don't want another black eye!
Hugs, neet 10 xx

Oh well done Helen, panic making cards is not a strength of mine and I always end up wishing I’d brought one and even at bleary o,clock you manage a really good one! Takes me too long even to choose the stamps these days! Am so pleased for you about Kew...it will be lovely and Social Distancing shouldn’t be too much of a problem either. I can see you’re going to have a long day. Don’t over do it gal, you need to get your Kew stamina back up!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh well done for remembering the birthday! I usually look at the calendar the day after and curse.... ;-). Time and which day it is seem to have lost all meaning at the moment. I'm pleased that you're feeling up to heading to Kew again, hope you have a lovely day.

Diana Taylor said...

The card is fabulous and I can't believe you made it so quickly - I love the colours and think they look great. I bet you can't wait to get to Kew, it's been so long and I must say I've missed your beautiful blog posts about it.
Hope you have a lovely day out and a great week,

That's a great card at short notice - we just printed one off the internet for Father's Day - how's that for lazy LOL! How exciting that you can go back to Kew's. You should be ok as long as everyone wears a mask on the train. Have fun - the heat should be gone by then. Take care zsuzsa #24 xx

Happy Birthday for Friday! Love your hare card. What a super image! (And I love the colours!) I am very envious of your visit to Kew, one of my favourite places. Do pot some pics next week!

My name is Cindy said...

Hello Helen! Managed to get my iPad working from the verandah so I'm woyww img from the garden. Love that hare and the colours look great to mr. Thought it wouldn't be long before you were off to Kew - fingers crossed for a good day! Stay safe, stay well, Cindy xx

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Helen, happy birthday for Friday. I really couldn't put a card together that quickly but I do have a selection of open cards that I can quickly add a sentiment too (Mr M always is last minute for wanting a card). Happy birthday for Friday, and hope you enjoy your trip to Kew, and that the weather keeps fine for you. Thanks for telling me about the link- I corrected it, and now probably messed up everyone's numbers lol. Have a lovely week and a wonderful birthday, hugs Heather xx #4

Belinda said...

Hi Helen! I am always embarrassed that I have a depleted source of birthday and get well cards for family and friends. I am a papercrafter that makes a lot of cards and yet, I am always scrambling to make cards for family and friends. Your Hare card is so cute. I am sitting out on my deck while I type to you. There is a lovely breeze that has been absent for days. It's suppose to rain today so I am happy because I won't have to water my garden. Thinking of curling up with a book after I snoop. I can't wait to see your photos from Kew. But be careful my friend. See you next week!

Hi Helen, and Happy Birthday for Friday- they've reopened Kew just in time for you to have a birthday treat! Love the hare card, I think the colours are great.Having some UFO's certainly comes in handy sometimes. Stay Safe, Have a lovely week,Hugs, Shaz #5 X

Felix the Crafty Cat said...

Hi Helen, sweet card. I tend to try and make two the same when making cards so I have one for when I get stuck for ideas but I have to say they often get sent out because there is a birthday I've forgotten. Hope you enjoy your day out at Kew. Happy woyww, Angela x19x

Crafting With Jack said...

Hi Helen, I am smiling on two accounts, firstly I am with you on the new blogger, keep putting it off and secondly your hate made me smile. A great image how lucky you had one stamped already x Angela # 33

Shoshi said...

Well done getting the speedy card done in time, Helen. Wow, Kew again! You must be soooo looking forward to that! I hope you will share lots of photos with us. I have never been, but almost feel as if I have, as I have seen all your gorgeous pictures, and catch your enthusiasm for it. How is your arm now? Are you fully recovered from that awful fall? I hope you have had no further recurrences of blacking out. Are you having investigations or have they just reassured you and sent you on your way?

Thank you for your lovely comment - you are one of several who said they would have thrown the cardigan across the room! A lot of throwing going on haha! However, after all the work, time and effort that's gone into it, not to mention the amount of really beautiful yarn, I'm not about to chuck it. It has been worth the effort if I can eventually wear it, and I think I'm well on the way to success now. So glad you like our "new" fire in the sitting room! We are thrilled with how it looks, and thrilled with our new plumber too!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi x #26

When I read right, it's your birthday TODAY so HOORAY, happy birthday!!! I too made a few 'quick cards' this week, birthdays always come in clusters it seems. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier this week, sorry I'm late with my visit back to your blog but finally time fell into place with my mind, yay! Have a great weekend, hug from Holland. Marit #28

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

It's Friday and I'm just in time to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I spoke with the youngsters last night and told them you would be going to Kew this weekend and they got all excited. They are as excited as I'm sure you are. What a great birthday gift that will be for you, too, dear Helen. And again, Happy birthday.

Lindart said...

Cute Hare card, Helen! I always wanted to have a stash of cards so I wasn't madly making last minute cards, but it never seems to happen! Thanks for your visit and your kind words re my journal! Hubby is painfully recovering in the hospital for another week...Have a great week, Lindart #29
