WOYWW #212

Good morning fellow deskers!

A very quick post from me today as I'm off to get the car MOTed today - fingers crossed!

I've mentioned before that I am not much of a card maker, but this week that seems to be mainly what I'm up to.

(In case you were wondering, I was looking on line to see if I needed to cut my poppies back hard now they have finished flowering - the answer is - yes.)

I've just finished making a little notecard. It is VERY simple but I really like it.

Typewriter stamp - Pink Paislee: Daily Junque (LOVE these stamps), Sentiment - Inkadinkado: Picket Fence both stamped in Coffee Archival.

And finally, my Mother in Law is not very well at the moment so I've made a get well soon card for her...

Molly Blooms stamps - Molly with Caterpillar MB-0004H, Flowers MB-0144E

Molly coloured with Copics (numbers) and Promarkers (colour names)

Skin: E0000, E00, E01
Cheeks: RV10, R20
Hair: E31, E35, E37
Top and shoes: RV13, RV14
Socks: E40,  RV10
Trousers: E40, E41
Hat; Powder Blue, Denim Blue
Caterpillar: YG95, YG97
White highlights - gel pen

Flowers coloured with Distress Inks, fine paintbrush and a little water using Mowed Lawn, Scattered Straw and Spun Sugar.

That's all from me, catch up with you later - unless the MOT bill is so huge I'm having a lie down!


  1. Love your work space Maisie cosy colourful creative! Mum in law will love the pretty card & good luck with the MOT I'd rather go to the dentist!!Debs #58

  2. Lovely cards, even though you say you are not a card maker, you do it very well =).
    I didn't know the oriental poppies had to be cut down after they bloomed. I'll have to keep that in mind...its a pity though, because I like the seed heads...
    Happy WOYWW and I wish you a wonderful week.

  3. Good luck with the MOT! Toes, fingers, everything crossable crossed! Love your cards, especially the simple elegance of the typewriter one. Interesting about the poppies - no wonder mine didn't bloom after the first year! Julie Ann x #65

  4. Great cards (well done - no smudges!) Good luck with the MOT. Happy WOYWW, hugs Jenny #54

  5. Hopefully you're not lying down and the car passed with flying colours - always a panic time even though you know it should be OK! Happy WOYWW! Your cards are beautiful, even if you don't make them often! ♥ Karen ♥ 84 x

  6. The notecard is cute, and the get well soon card even cuter. We must get glasses though as we read you were going to get the CAT MOTed!!!

    Hugs from the visually challenged bears @#93 this week

    Hugs, LLJ 31 xx

  21. I'm in love with that typewriter stamp... awesome!! Hope your MIL will feel better soon - such a sweet card you made her! Happy ~ belated ~ woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #91

  22. Lovely cards there, so who said you weren't a card maker then? I'll lynch them! Thanks for visiting my desk already BJ#46

  23. That should cheer MIL up when she gets that cute crd and I love the CAS one. Thanks for the reminder about the poppies (my faves) but mine are still flowering although they are being battered by the rain.
    Sorry I am so late, dare I say it, cleaning got in the way - and thanks for visiting me yesterday. Hugs, Neet 13 xx

  24. I'm sorry your MIL is ill, Maisie, and I hope she is better soon. Your card will definitely help with that!! Love the little note card, too! You need to keep up your card-making IMHO!

    I chuckled when I saw the poppies on your computer screen. Hasn't the internet made our lives magical in so many ways? Remember having to get in the car and drive to the library to look up answers to these questions?! (Well, in some ways I miss that tho.)

    Thanks for your visit and kind comment! Enjoy the rest of the week! Tardy Darnell #32
