WOYWW... & The Birthday Boy...

...I know I say this every week... but... where did the last week just whip off to??? I can't believe it is Wednesday already... which can mean only one thing... it is time to follow our esteemed desk hopper extraordinaire Julia... and go on a mammoth hop around the world of creative desks. Last week I am chuffed to say I managed to get to over 100 desks :O)) My desk today has the remnants of a little something I made for Grim... paints and stuff which need to be put away... but I did have a huge tidy up at the weekend and managed to tidy away one vital component of the thing I made him... and now I can't find it ROFL




Today is Wednesday, which also means... it is Grim's birthday... so I am not going to do my usual wafflingly long and going off at tangents post... I shall keep it short n sweet so I can go and spend more time with the birthday boy... here is the card I made him...



And... here it is closer



And... that's it really! Seriously, I have finished... no tricks or anything... I know, I am taking my temperature as I type cos normally when I say that I am keeping it short, it waffles on for another half hour...but no, today, it's going to be a short 'un... don't forget to hop on over to Julia's to see all the peeps who are in this crazy but fun weekly event! Thanks for looking... TTFN

I love the birthday card Hels. How did you do the text on the tag? Is it a stamp or was it computer generated?

Grim's card is fab Hels. Hope he appreciates it, Lol! Tidying up's a menace isn't it? You always manage to lose an important bit.

Have a lovely day with the Birthday Boy.

Very Happy Birthday Sir Grimness have a great day. Wonderful card. You put me to shame it's my husband's birthday on Friday and I am stuck for ideas, so I had better get a wriggle on! I had to tidy up last week,(or shovel things into boxes and hide them in the bedroom)for people coming. Now I can't find anything it is driving me mad!

I want to sit down and work at your desk...very inviting! Happy B-Day to Grim, he'll just love your card! I love Tim's "umbrella man" stamp and have used it many times on masculine cards. It always looks cool.

Happy Birthday, Grim! Hels, i hope you baked him a wonderful cake. being a minimalist at heart, i like the card a lot. in fact, since i have most of the stamps you used i may have to make something similar to keep in my OMG i forgot to make a card for X stack. weeks seem to disappear to fast in my life too.

Wanda H said...

It's a beautiful card!!! Happy Birthday to Grim!!!!

Phree said...

Great space, lots there but very organised looking. I am curious about those shelves under your desk on the right side of the photo - can't figure out what you have stashed in there at all! Hope your hubby enjoys his birthday and that great card you made for him!

Heather x said...

Happy belated birthday Mr D :0)
Stunning card Hels :0)
*hugs* Heather x

Karen said...

Great card, and a far too tidy desk.
I can't figure what all the scallop bits under your desk are though: Just being VERY nosy but I've done the click on the pic AND zoomed in, and still can't figure it???

Happy Birthday Grim!

Sunshine Girl said...

Fab card, hope you both had a great day - I so love that man stamp I think I might just have to cave in and treat myself when I go to the NEC in November! am saving me pennies...

Grim said...

Serendipity Stamping said...

I am a day behind on you and thanks for the lovely peeks. Special card for a special hubby and I have already seen the next post with your WONDERFUL work of art for hubby. He should now be thrilled to death with your thoughtful and sentimental items.
Got to look up and see how that silly saying came about, after all who really wants anyone to be thrill to death.

Brenda said...

Brenda

Amazing!! The one week I'm so very late, I miss telling your husband happy birthday. That card is really beautiful and my kind of art.

Sorry I'm so late getting here this week. Getting to everyone has gotten harder and harder, but had to stop to wish you a happy belated WOYWW (on Sunday).
