WOYWW #480

WOYWW #480

As if by magic another Wednesday appears and it's time to share what's on our
workspace and peep at other's courtesy of Julia over at her stamping ground.

There's not been much creativity on this space
in fact it's hardly changed over the past few weeks.

That's all set to change in a week or two
and surely upset the Craft Cart..

Here's a glance of the quickest Anniversary card I've ever made 
using some super thick mirror card, staZon & a ball tool. 

Funny that Claritystamp are celebrating their 25th year too.

Sweet, symbolic and nothing Beer related on this one.
Just need to add some soppy words now awww...

Thank you for all the early Anniversary wishes, it's officially tomorrow xx

After the silliest of things that caused chaos last week I can report that some
have been fixed, some still waiting to be fixed and others totally unfixable.

Non the less after my washing machine stopped mid wash and started flashing
FO5 at me I wasn't sure whether this was an insult or indication it had just had enough..
Google sure was my friend that day (other search engines are readily accessible)
 as it taught me how to empty, unblock & resume that wash...

There is light at the end of that wash basket after all.
I'll keep you all posted on the craft cart..

Look forward to seeing WOYWW #480

Creative Wishes
Tracey xx

Happy Anniversary, that's a lovely card. Your desk looks very tidy, wow. Well done on repairing the washing machine. The keyboard on my laptop is having hissy fits today, I'll see what Google advises! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

Oh Tracey, that anniversary card is very special, even if it was a quick make.
Glad you sorted your washing machine, we are so dependant on these things.
Bless you for visiting my desk and the nice comments.

A lovely card - the simplicity is so effective and elegant. Happy Anniversary for tomorrow. So glad you are getting all your problems sorted out, I've often found when one thing goes wrong another one will around the same time - there must be a name for that. I often wonder how I used to manage before Google!
Hope you have a great week,
Diana x #15

Frustrations of household chores and time lost doing fun things. I guess we all have it and google helps ! Love the background watercolor and just a special anniversary card. Really unique. Have a great week. #18

Neet said...

love your "light at the end of the washing basket" - brilliant - made me smile - a lot! Sorry you had a problem though, not funny when that happens.
Well, congratulations on your Anniversary - love the card. Happy Anniversary for tomorrow.
Hugs, Neet 6 xx

Hi Tracey, it must be the month for stuff going wrong. The tap in the bathroom upstairs decided to drip and apparently it's caput so will have to have a new one and the toilet's not flushing properly. Now I always think things come in threes but I don't really need anything else thank you! Hope your day is good tomorrow, got one of those coming up soon too. Thanks for the visit and happy woyww, Angela x12x

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Just stopped by to see how you were. I hope the FIXABLES included the toilet and the heat randomly turning on. Happy 25 tomorrow. That card is out of this world.

Dorthe said...

BIG CONGRATULATIONS f or tomorrow dear friend- I wish you a wonderful day, both.
And glad to hear the chaos from week gone, have been almost fixed, as is the wash which had been Jailed in the machine , lol- so many mishaps for you, I`m sorry , but hope it don`t make you hide your head in the ground,in dispair Tracey.
A very big hugs for you for tomorrow, and for every day :-) xoxo

Happy Silver Wedding, Tracey! I love the card you've made. I've never seen that technique on mirror card before - it looks just like embossed metal. I must try this... I hope you both have a really lovely day with something special to mark the celebration. We had such a great time on ours! Thank you for your visit and all your lovely comments - I'm afraid I have been pricking my fingers quite often with the needle felting and it's very painful!!! You clearly know all about that... I had a look at my kombucha today and it seems to be going well, with plenty of evidence of fermentation. I can smell it through the top of the shepherd's headdress lol! I suppose I'm a bit of a perfectionist and won't rest until I'm 100% pleased with my sourdough, but this last lot certainly was acceptable. It's all gone now! I shall make some more over the weekend. We sampled the fermented apple for lunch today and I thought it was very good but my hubby only gave it 4 stars! Thanks for your good wishes for my appointment tomorrow. I quite agree with you, having your GP trying to expedite your appointment seems to have absolutely no effect at all. Mine said she would do it weeks ago. I am really hoping there will be a stoma nurse available to see me too. The whole thing's a nightmare. I was quite busy this a.m. making a salad and dealing with my Tesco delivery but this p.m. I'm exhausted again and had a sleep!

Happy WOYWW and again, a very happy anniversary!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Many Congrats on your Silver Wedding!! The card, though quickly made, is quite lovely and exactly the sort of thing that floats my boat (I think it looks quite Art Deco!). The washing machine saga made me smile, well done for sorting it out!
Sorry I'm late replying, I was out all day on a WI Trip (to a distillery, that's my sort of WI, lol!)

Happy Anniversary! Your card is beautiful! Hope you guys have a lovely romantic day! Thanks for your visit, Inky probably stops meowing as soon as I leave, and goes upstairs to sleep until I get home! I have a few days off, so hopefully will be able to work on my travel journal, and have something to show next week! Have a great week, with no annoying appliances! Lindart #24

Thank you to each and everyone of you for the Anniversary Wishes. We had a super day Thank you and it only seems like yesterday that we first made those vows.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend with at least a little creativity.
Biggest of Hugs Tracey xx

Marit said...

Oh those household-machines, how I curse them when they let me down... but there's always relief in creating isn't there? We can even put the anger and frustration on paper if I need to, not that your card shows that, not at all! IT's one lovely piece!!! Thanks for your visit to my blog earlier this week, happy belated woyww, have a great day! Hug from Holland, Marit #20

Sarah Brennan said...

Hi Tracey, hope the anniversary went well, I do love the card as I have the same supplies! Thanks for visiting already. Have a good (better) week. Sarah #19

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh that is a cute card, am a fan of producing stuff double quick when it comes out so well! Congrats on your anniversary....I can confirm that like Wednesdays, they seem to roll around faster each time! I’m glad that things are quite so hideous for you this week; i do hate it when things that are meant to work all the time suddenly don’t, dammit, inconvenience and time wasting! Sorry I’m’s been a ridiculous week.

Kelly said...

Good morning, Tracey! What did we do before google and youtube? LOL Glad you were able to tackle the flashing light and fix your machine. Go you! Thanks for stopping by this week. I'm late getting round. Creative Blessings! Kelly #27
