Good Morning WOYWWers, Followers and Fellow Bloggers,

Wednesday again! Where does the week go? WOYWW, What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, is here again and I'm not ready. I've only just whipped through with the camera and snapped the desk as it was last night and as it still is this morning.
Mid making this card featuring a Forever Friends topper - the one I've been deliberating over for the best part of a week and still not sure if it's going to be right for my 13 year old granddaughter. At the front, from the left, you can see a pile - paper, snippets and leftovers - the die used for the topper, tape runner, ink pad (vintage photo), scissors, pencil (probably my most used tool), not to mention the card top in an unfinished state. There's a couple of slips of paper to the far right, one is the sketch I'm working from and the other is the start of the list of supplies I'm using ... have to keep a list ready for posting, I'd forget something vital otherwise :)

At the back, again from the left, there's the base for this card propped up against the adhesive container. Beside that is another container holding the elements that came in the Forever Friends kit ... actually the dish is one of the soup dishes from our now redundant caravan dinner service - we no longer have the caravan :( To the right of that are some punches that were used for another project and haven't been put away, yet!

And that is it. Apologies, but this has been brief, well, brief for me, this morning. We are going over to my daughter's for a while. Sadly, my SIL's cousin, Robert, died on Friday, at only 52, and making it doubly sad, his uncle, also Robert, who has terminal cancer, is now in hospital.

I will be back later hoping to visit as many WOYWWers as possible.

In the meantime, I wish you all a very good day.

PS: Glad to read that Vickie, aka Okienurse, has survived the tornado in Oklahoma.

  13. Hi Elizabeth, Oh l'm so sorry to hear of your loss my thoughts go out to you and your families .....take care xx

  14. I has been an interesting couple of days around here with the tornado etc. I feel guilty I am so relieved to live south of the destruction track and sorry for the loss of all those lives. It is a hard place to live right now. Love the granddaughters birthday card! Sorry to hear about your SIL loss and his father's illness. This world has all sorts of horrible things going on right now. I didn't make it around to many blogs last week so I promised myself that I would visit everyone who visited me last week first this week. I hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing.

  15. Sorry to hear of your families loss. I am sure your grand daughter will love it, the bear is just gorgeous and cute

  16. Hello again Elizabeth,
    Sad to hear of your family member dying at middle age. Not a fair deal.
    I do like the teddy bear coming along; he will be popular. I have been a bit on then off with blogging for a while so am hoping that the colder weather will encourage indoor activities.
    All the best,
    Ros. #28

  17. Sending you and your family hugs. Always seems so unfair when it happens to someone so young. Sorry I'm late with the WOYWW!

  18. Trusting that, as you grieve, you will be able to remember good times. Take care.
    God bless,

  19. Hi Elizabeth,

    The teddy bear is so cute - and love the background papers. I know what you mean about teenagers (or soon to be). My niece and nephews are at that age where I give them money for their gifts. I know that's what they like.

    Happy WOYWW and thank you for visiting me!!

  21. I bet she will love that card!
    Even at 13 they are still kids at heart!

  22. so sorry, Elizabeth - 52's way too young...
    and sorry it's taken so long to reply - the days have just evaporated!
    happy belated WOYWW x
    PS one of the perks of being late - I saw your cute FF card finished :)

  23. Hugs and prayers for you and the failies involved. It's never easy to lose a loved one. OK, I am asking my WOYWW folks to rally behind me and I truly need your support. I am in a contest and the voting ends today so it's now or never. PLEASE go vote for me ( the camera )....yes, I am begging, lol
