WOYWW 147 - The Blogoversary one....

Wooohooo!

It's that time of the week again when we go on a massive snoop-fest courtesy of Ms Dunnit over at The Stamping Ground.

This week I actually have a creative desk, and I'll share with you a couple of other pics I've taken of recent cards from the Morti Makings...

Mr B has been heard to comment lately that I'm being very tidy in my creativity.  Not so, says I.  T'is simply a matter of having to jostle for space with another someone who has had Mother's Day cards to make, so if you don't want it spoiled, put it away!

And then there's the small matter of everyone turning 40 and I need cards.  And weddings... my sister, you understand, not me.  Not yet, at any rate!  Now that she has her card, I can blog it.  Coolio!

So, my desk this week is showing the makings of yet another 40th Birthday card, along with my Mothers Day gift from Lil Miss B - a Tim Holtz Alterations die (woo, go me!) , but not a lot else.  This was taken last night, and is how the desk looks this morning.


Next up, the two Mother's Day cards I made - remarkably similar, eh?  You gotta love the Stamp Tapestry collections, they make it so simple!  I used my trusty lego stamp postioner to get the Happy Mother's Day text in the right place.


Lastly, the Wedding card I recently made for my sister and her fella - main sentiment was cut out using a file from Silhouette SD, the punch is Martha Stewart.  A bit of dry embossing, a couple of peeloffs (yup, gotta love those straight line ones) and some flat backed self adhesive pearls, and Bob's your Uncle.



So, today I have been short and sweet as requested by Julia - hope to see you all on the blog-hop!

PS... Aah, yes... The small matter of this blog's 6th Blogoversary, for it is indeed today.  I know it is traditional these days to offer some Blog Candy on so festive an occasion, but to be honest with all you guys, I simply can't afford it this year.  All the spare pennies (and I shall be having words with Mr B regarding the gift of a TH die for Mother's Day) are heading in the general direction of a rather reined-in wedding next year, so I hope you'll all forgive me for not offering anything amazing this time round.  Maybe next year, if wedding funds allow....

Happy 6th. I missed mine too. It passed and I didn't notice even though I have the the thing on my blog. BTW, I want to see your LEGO stamp positioner. Sounds like something I could make if I had some Legos (grin). Happy WOYWW from #3.

Great desk, shouldn't worry about candy, though you could always make something to give rather than buying something if you feel you wanted to. I reckon that's what I shall be doing as I can't afford to buy stuff. I've a long way to go to my 6th though. Take care & enjoy this weeks snoop of WOYWW desks. Zo xx 77

I think it is sweet that people offer us candy on their blogiversaries but shouldn't WE be giving YOU gifts for 6 wonderful years of inspiring us?! Anyhow... love the Mother's Day cards and I had to laugh at the Lego stamp positioner. I've made do with various right angled items myself when on the go, Legoes weren't on the list though. BEE-YEW-TEE-FULL wedding card!
