WOYWW - Week 211

Hello Friends

Is it just me or do Wednesdays keep coming around faster by the week....... ?  Today is the day we share our desks with fellow bloggers around the Globe...... if you want to join in then go over to see Julia at
http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk who will give you all the details.

On my desk this week is one of the reasons why I have not had much time to craft lately.  I have been making wedding invitations for D2.  Plain and simple, to her exact specifications. All done and dusted now, packaged up and ready to be collected, so here is my desk this dull and overcast morning.


 
Something else to show you is the rest of the ATCs I received in our wonderful swap.


Left to right (back) a wonderful ATC from Minxy, my swap partner.  Right is a lovely collage one from Ria.  At the front (left) is one from my lovely blog friend Darnell - this is all the more amazing because Darnell has never made ATCs before - this one is edged in piping and looks fabulous.  Bottom right is from the lovely Toni, I love that globe and background.  Amazing creations, I think you will agree.  Lucky me!

Well Julia likes us to keep things short and sweet so that's all from me folks.  I look forward to seeing your work spaces too today.   Happy WOYWW, hugs, Anne xx

  9. I love the wedding invitations - they are beautiful and very elegant. They must have taken you ages - I've made some in the past and they took so long they drove me crazy - I thought I'd be making them into my old age! Hope you have a great week and thanks for dropping by my desk.

  14. Love those invitations you have done. Classy! Are they die cuts? So intricate - hope the die cut well, if they are, as visions of flicking all those bits out makes me shudder.
    You have some lovely atc's there - I have so enjoyed being a spectator on this atc swap as well as enjoying making some and, of course, receiving some.
    Thanks for visiting me earlier, I went back to bed after making some cards - Hugs, Neet xx 16

  26. Wonderful invites Anne, your daughter picked well and you can never go wrong with Memory Box can you? I dabble in Christmas on and off all year to be honest! Bit sad really but it saves the stress later in the year! Lovely atc's from everyone, thanks for popping in.

  35. Oh my stars, Annie, those wedding invitations look so elegant and amazing!! And, ahem, aren't there a HUGE number of them?? This is going to be a big wedding and I can't wait to hear and see more about it!

    Thank you for sharing all the wonderful ATCs you received and your sweet comment about mine. A correction though in that this year I made my second ATC. It was last year's ATC swap where I made my very first one. And literally, only one. I'm learning more every time we do one of these fun things and I can't believe it, but I'm already looking forward to the next one!

    Happy WOYWW and happy WEEK. That stands for ... just kidding! xxoo Darnell #20

By the time I had finished, I never wanted to see a rosebud again LOL. Your ATC swaps are lovely too. Love, Margie

  41. Loved your elegant wedding cards. As I'm sure your D2 will also. I always think simplicity done well, looks so regal & lush. Your DD knew exactly the right person to achieve this for her! GREAT JOB! Loved all your ATC's. Indeed, Lucky You. Leave to Darnell....she aces it every time, doesn't she? All four were super nice, and I know you will treasure these, and remember your good friends each time you look at these. TFS. Hugs

  42. The invitations look beautiful!! They will be loved for sure!! Lovely ATC's too!!
    The "specimen" bottles have everyone curious it seems! They are just small glass bottles that look great with nails and other stuff in them for steampunk projects!!

  43. I had to click on the invitations to get a better look. They are incredible.

    And of course, you got some more lovely ATCs. It's good to see so many styles, all with the same theme. And because it's still Wednesday in my part of the world, have a super WOYWW from #17.

  54. Oh those ATCs are marvelous! And what a clean workspace you have! I'm still waiting on the craft clean up clapper to be invented, meanwhile I'm still performing the "shove everything to the side and work in 6in of space" method :)
