WOYWW #375

Where on earth are all these weeks going? Seems like the whole year has flown by, here we are in Mid August already. That means it's time for another visit to WOYWW Towers, hosted by our Head Desker Julia over at The Stamping Ground.
  A couple of things on my desk this week, a batch of panels I've made, some posted up in the two posts below this one.
These have been a lot of fun to make, and really quick and easy.
This post has the link to the video that inspired me, if you are interested.

The only other thing on my desk is a pack of acrylic stars. I wanted these to finish off the cards I'd made with the Christmas trees on.

 They've got a few acrylic gems on for 'baubles', but I wanted ones to stick over the star on top of the tree. I'll get these stuck down, and then apart from writing them, I can call them finished.
 That's my desk this week, short and sweet. There is another project I can't show yet, it's a Birthday card for Beloved Hubby. Our Birthday is this Sunday, and we are having a road trip this weekend, and are off down to Wiltshire to visit the lovely LLJ & her family, and to see Julia.
So expect there to be photos next week,lol.

How lucky you are to be visiting those two lovely ladies. One day I will get there. Almost got to Jan's part of the wood this summer (didn't know at the time it was her part of the wood).
Those panels are gorgeous so I must investigate further.
You talk of birthdayS - do you both have a birthday on the same day? Happy Birthday anyway to whoever it is - and enjoy your trip.
Hugs, Neet 3 xx

Hi Shaz
I have been reading your previous posts as I have a lot of catching up to do! I love your panel cards, so clever. I will be trying that myself I think. Well done you for finishing your Christmas cards. I have usually made a start but not this year, I seem to have stuff going on all the time at the moment. Enjoy your weekend with Jan and Julia.
Hugs Lynda B 8

Looking forward to seeing you! I'm afraid you're sharing your room with a few boxes, but there's none on your bed, so that's ok :-D. We need help emptying the beer fridge too...life's tough, lol! Loving your C cards too.
HUgs, LLJ 7 xxx

Hope you two have a great time - had already picked up you were visiting. I do love your lacy stencilling - I could do with one of those stencils for my next project but will have to improvise (I like to make it tricky)Birthday hugs x Jackie 17

Those panels look great. I'll have to check out the video. I saw on Jan's blog that you were off to the shire for a visit. Have a great weekend x

Righto, if you're doing it then it means I can't be that crazy to be thinking about Christmas already! Looked at the calendar yesterday and realised I've only 12 weeks until my first Christmas fair of the year. I have absolutely nothing to sell! I hope you have a fabulous time with LLJ and family. Happy crafting, Max #22

glitterandglue said...

Morning Shaz. Love those panels - how do you hope to use them? They are great just on their own, but I'm sure you have some ideas... Your birthdays? This weekend? Can it really be 12 months since you were celebrating together??? How time flies. Have a fantastic w/e with LLJ and Julia. Celebrate all together.
Take care, dear girl - love to hubby. God bless.

Wow, your panels are stunning and I've just looked at your previous post and love everything you've been doing. The lace stencil is absolutely gorgeous in black - very striking, and the way you've blended colours together is really effective - I'm now feeling the need to get my stencils out today!
Happy WOYWW,

Happy Birthday! Your Christmas cards look great. And those background panels look good too. I like to play with new techniques and then I have pieces to use on future cards. Thanks for your earlier visit. #41

THose panels, and the cards from your previous post look great! I can't wait to check out the link--thanks for sharing! I'm envious of all the Christmas cards you have done; I just haven't pulled that trigger yet; but soon; very soon! Have a great week and visit w/LLJ.

Happy WOYWW. I am always impressed by your productivity rate. Lovely panels and finished cards. Still not started my Xmas crafting - I did say I would start in July this year, but I just looked at my Xmas stash box and decided that it was far too early! Want summer to last as long as possible.

Have a wonderful road trip! Cara x
