WOYWW #200 - Thank You Very Much!!!!

Wednesday seems to have come around even quicker with the Easter break - hope you had a good one, I certainly did. I had a PJ day on Friday, work Saturday, saw mum on Sunday and as I am on my own at the moment and deserted by youngsters I had most of Monday to myself. I decided it was time to tackle the huge box of WIPs which was threatening to overflow. At the same time, I had had a request from a work colleague for thank you cards so I thought I would get out some of those unused or unfinished card kits and make a few simple cards. Here are the Thank You ones.
I think I may have overdone it.





Birthday cards
A lot of the cards were made using the Hunky Dory 'Butterfly Sorbet' kit which is really, really pretty and very easy to put together. I bought it mainly because I coudln't resist the dimensional butterfly cards.

Dimensional butterfly card
I prefer stamped or 'arty' cards myself, but I find they don't sell as well as the kit cards and unless commissioned people don't want to pay for the big fancy cards. However, I expect these to go down very well and I wanted to get some more stock done as we are having a quiz night at work next week. But it doesn't matter if they don't, it just means I have stuff ready for my MacMillan Day later in the year.

And in the spirit of getting things finished here's the current
 project I am trying to get done and dusted
which was supposed to be a present for a friend
for LAST Christmas. Ooops! So that's what I've been doing this week and now the decks are clear I have a hankering to get out the melt pot.... been watching Hels all week on C & C and am feeling the need to dip and pour.

For the full details of WOYWW and how to join in, pop over to Julia Dunnit's blog 'Stamping Ground'. I am at work today so will  be visiting late. Have a good day!!

First of all Cindy, I like your cards. Boy oh boy, did you make a lot. Hope they ell - no reason why not. Sadly you are right, stamped cards do not go down as well but it's still good to make them isn't it. Come in handy for stamping friends and their birthdays.
Hope yours do well,should do, they are so pretty.
Hugs, Neet xx 6
