WOYWW #137

Can I say a great big thank you to everyone for the kind comments last week and concern about my back. If good wishes could make something better, then my back certainly improved through them. In fact, it was Sunday before it stopped hurting so I didn't get much done all week. Darn wear and tear in my neck causes most of my problems, but hey!, life goes on. So a special thank you to Julia again, because the dozens of folk who left me a good wish, could not have done so without What's on your Workdesk Wednesday.  A veritable concoction of goodness and fun.
So, my desk today:
The creation of charity cards has begun. I managed to make the start yesterday and have a fair few done already. However, I hoped to use up my old stash but am amazed at how little each card is taking. At this rate I shall be making cards for the next 20 years and not make a dent in it. I have gained a few new followers just lately, so maybe some blog candy is on the books too. Will have to look into that so watch this space ie my blog, as today isn't the place to be advertising that.
Right, must get my brain into gear and try and get round more folk than last week. Have a great day. x

It looks like you are having a wonderful time making your cards. I'm glad to hear your back is feeling better now. I have so much stash that I've put myself on a spending freeze (also to save some money for a nice vacation!) and I'm not even making a tiny dent in it at all!

Happy WOYWW! Katie #16

The blue border is really pretty. I know what you mean about cardmaking. I can make a lot of cards from one sheet of paper. You just get sick of it sometimes so I toss the scraps in the donate pile! -dianneo #123

Hope your back continues to improve, nothing worse when you want to get on and be crafty. I'm sure my scrap pile doubles when I turn my back, there's always so much of it.

Keeping your back in our prayers (all of you actually LOL!). The cards look like they are coming together well! Isn't it amazing how when we need something there is not quite enough, when we are trying to use it up...it seems to multiply! (like my leftovers in the fridge). Happy WOYWW- Amanda 40

I was afraid of that myself--that I could use up my stash forever and ever and never be done with it in this lifetime. However, I chose to ignore that as a possibility so I can still go buy myself stuff.

I like the cards I see coming to life on your desk. Fun punch!! I hope your neck behaves so you can continue to play.
