WOYWW 207

Phew, that week went by in a blur and it's time to show you what's on my desk.  Nothing exciting I'm afraid, I'm still on with wedding stationery and I had a bit of a panic at 10 p.m. Sunday night when I suddenly realised I'd only made half of the 40 cards I needed for the Order of Serice!  I managed to get most of it prepared by the time I went to bed three hours later and spent Monday and Tuesday putting most of them together.  I still have another 5 to complete because I ran out of black card and had to order some more.



The box with the pink flowers in it are the place cards which are all done and dusted.

I've also got the inserts for the O of S done too and am debating on how to stick them into the card as there are 4 pages.  Staples look favourite at the moment.


The pink package at the bottom left is a birthday card for my friend Sue.  I made the card ages ago and it's been lurking on my desk and if I'm not careful I will forget to send it - her birthday is on the 31st May so I thought if I put it right in the front, I'd remember.

Just behind that is Tuppenny Wee's tuxedo which needs taking in a bit and to the left of that is a new baby card for the long awaited Bijoux Belle baby girl who incidently has just arrived.  (I'm writing this Tuesday night and she was born at 18:55 and weighed a healthy 8lb 6 oz.  Congratulations Laura and John:)

At the bottom right is some black chiffon which is to make Holly's bridesmaids dress a bit less revealing at the top.   I'm not sure how I am going to go about this yet though!

If you click on the photo to make it bigger, you might also notice I am starting to make some Christmas cards for the Beat the Christmas Rush challenge.

Right, so that's my desk for another week and if you want to join in, why don't you head over to Julia's?

Love the colour scheme for the stationary... just the sort of thing my remaining unmarried DD would like .... probably next year that will change. discussions have already started but no date yet. as for the fixing i tied the O of S with ribbon to keep th outside the same you could tie it in a knot on the inside.
have fun

sandee said...

OK, now it's confession time for me, because here I am on Friday making my way around the WOYWW board, hoping against hope to solicit some votes for a contest I am in. Horrible, aren't I? Just shameless, but here I am all the same! So if you feel the urge to go vote for me, I sure would appreciate from the bottom of my pitiful heart! lol http://www.genuinelyjanestudios.com/genuinelyblog/gjs-design-a-book-contest-top-three-finalists-announced/ waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥
