WOYWW 132 - Success!

Welcome to WOYWW once more.  For all the deets on this desk-hopping extravanganza, go HERE.

So, just a quickie from me tonight - we have success!  I finally managed to get my star card completed, and here it is.  I apologise for the state of the photos, I've taken them in rather a hurry tonight after spending a couple of hours unsuccessfully trying to resolve an email issue.  Darned BT!






Yes, an awful lot of work went into those, and I won't know for a couple of days whether or not it's worth it, but it was fun!

I've just realised I didn't take a decent picture of the section of the card with the 5 pointed star pop out.  Oh well!

Not much else has happened here at Morti Mansions - unfortunately, Lil Miss B's Christmas trip to Granny in France has been cancelled at the eleventh hour because the Wicked Real-Mother failed to check the passport (we didn't have it, so didn't know) until last night and discovered it had expired.  Neither she nor we have the funds to replace it this close to Christmas, even if she managed to get an appointment to do so.  I wouldn't mind, but her other daughter's had expired earlier this year and it didn't occur to her to check it at the time.... I have to say that Lil Miss B has mixed feelings about the trip being cancelled - the silver lining is that she doesn't have to spend Christmas with Granny.  The sad part is that it's just re-inforced in her young mind what a waste of space her real mother is.  Such a shame.

Anyway, I digress...

Other than the card, my desk is pretty clear.  Lil Miss B had a marathon session on Monday night and made a fridge magnet for her Guide Leader for Christmas, but that's all the excitement my desk has seen this week.  If you can see my two new jesters lurking, I might offer a prize for the two best names you guys can come up with!

Catch you on the hop!

This is one incredible card. I love the details and it must have taken forever to make. Sorry about Miss B. I am sure you will help make up for the lack of trips to France this Christmas. Happy WOYWW from # 5.

The card is awesome. I liken your process to having a baby...long painful and difficult, but as soon as its over, you've forgotten all about it!
The only consolation I can offer Miss b is tht she wasn't at the airport when the passport problem was discovered. Thats too last minute to be a relief!

this real bad mother DID get to the port to find only one of the four passports were valid!

I also know a pal who got there and back again without one....

he has a boat you know....

listen Hun, sometimes things happen so people end up where they need to be...

My son inherited my pissport disorder and has managed to lose two passports in three years....I doubt he will be visiting when we live across different borders.....

Love that star card, so much work, it's incredible. What a shame for Lil Miss B, don't know what's worse, not being able to go or realising her mum is flakey, that's not a nice life lesson for one so young. I'm sure she'll have a great Christmas at home though.

Amazing card - way too complex for a bear of little brain like me! Have a good Christmas. x Jo

sandra de said...

Amazing card and I am sure it was worth the effort as I have never seen anything like it. Sad about the passport mix up and sad when people continue to let others down.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Morti, that card is amazing ... too complex for this tired old brain to contemplate :) I feel for Little Miss B ... there's nothing worse than grown-ups letting you down :( However, by the sounds of it, she is going to have a better time staying home anyway :) Hope your week is a good one. Elizabeth x #66
