WOYWW 202…

…and a little bit more! I know I'm late but I shouldn't even be here at all - no! We were planning to go away today but yesterday walking back from the main building to our flat something clicked in my foot which has left me hobbling around in my slippers! It has happened once before and the pain is easing a little now but this is what my desk should have looked like today.

Instead there is still a little pile of things I intended to take away with me!
As you can see I've done a bit of rearranging to make a little more working space! 
I'm looking forward to visiting some desks courtesy of Julia at the Stamping Ground but it may not be today!
The other things I mentioned are a few cards - a wedding card and two little boy cards for my grandsons whose birthdays are just two days apart!

Taken before I'd finished them but I had the camera out!
The wedding card I made for the black and white themed wedding I went to - just a lot of flowers punched out using various punches mainly black and white with a touch of silver. We went to the evening "do" and it was one of the best I've ever been to - a sea of black and white, a hog roast with salad, a rock band (who were very good), beautiful table decorations(including lego to play with in a black organza bag) and a visit from - ta-da! - Darth Vader and a couple of storm troopers!

Just for those who wanted to know what I wore …eventually!
Hubby has just made me a cup of coffee so I had better go and put my feet up and drink it! 
Thanks for looking, Chris

Your cards are great - would never have thought of making a wedding card in black and white - but that is so effective. Trust your foot eases and you get away soon.

A busy work space is an interesting work space. Great card designs.

Oh no, poor you! Hope you're resting your foot! Gorgeous cards, especially the wedding one (the hydrangea is my favourite punch!!) and you look lovely in your wedding outfit xx

You certainly look glam in that picture and the card you made is fabulous - love the array of flowers. Like the boys' cards too. Hope that your foot soon gets better and you can go off on your jaunts.
Thanks for visiting me earlier - Hugs, Neet xx 5

Hope you heal quickly! That sounded like a fun and unusual wedding with Darth V. showing up. THanks for stopping by my blog.

Cute cards! Hope your foot gets better soon. Wish I could have met Darth!

Love the black & white wedding theme, and your cards are gorgeous. I hope your foot is easing off now-stupid how these things happen isn't it? I must have slept awkwardly one night last week, went to bed fine, woke up & couldn't put one foot on the floor! I think I must have trapped a nerve, could only put the ball of my foot on the ground. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #70 xx

Oh no, Chris... do hope your foot is on the mend - how sad to have to postpone your trip. Lovely cards, and it looks like a great outfit to me - so glad you had fun... lego on the tables is approaching genius!

Aww Chris, what a shame had to miss out on your break…..why do things like that always happen at the wrong time? I hope your foot is not too painful and that you can get away at a later date to make up for it.

Loving your cards, especially the wedding one and the Hog Roast sounds yummy, it’s making my mouth water just at the thought of it.

Thanks for stopping by this week and
Happy Crafting!
