Sunday Stamper - Week 207 - Words

Goooodly morning Stampers and a very happy, sunny Sunday to you all. Mahoosive thanks for all your gorgeous entries last week. I have added the comments to the entries and there were 74 entries in total. Mr. Random.org was very obliging and picked #42 as the winner, which is the comment left by Redanne. Congrats to Anne and please could you pop me an email over with your addy so I can post your prize :O))


On with this weeks theme; following the very sad news that Robin Gibb passed away last week, this weeks Sunday Stamper theme is in his memory, with one of my favourite songs by The Bee Gees. Actually, it is really tough to just chose one song because there are so many brilliant ones. So, the theme is WORDS. To join in is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme and some stamping, then pop back here and leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry. If you haven't got a blog, you can enter by email/flickr/picassa or on Facebook. The theme will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 2nd June 2012.


My entry this week is actually what we will be making in the workshop this morning. It is a chunky little wooden block that Grim very kindly cut for me - seriously, me and a fast whirring saw? Tres dangerous, I cut one block and then handed the reins back to Grim... he also made some ickle feet for the block to sit on. The front, back and sides were covered with cardstock that has been stamped and Stained. I added some 3d butterflies and diecut letters for the word "dream". The finishing touches are the Curio Knob on the top and the Type Charm.


I am sitting in Dawn's kitchen at the moment, we have had a lovely evening making cards and watching the Eurovision...poor old Engelbert, he was robbed!!! Tis time for bed now though... I will be back tomorrow with some pics from this weekends classes - I had my camera at the ready yesterday and it spent all day under my inky binky so I forgot to get pics as the class was going on... whoooopsy-daisies! I did take a few at the end though, well, better late than never! Many thanks to all the lovely ladies and gent who came along for a day of inkiness, twas a fab day!

As ever, thanks for looking... Have a lovely summery day .... TTFN

What fun we had with the blocks of wood this morning! All fired up to make another now (if only I had a Mr DIY like you do ...). Yet another fabby workshop Hels - can't get enough of them.

Artyjen said...

Aah! Eurovision...we all have our opinions ;)
My opinion on the art is it's a fantabulous way to decorate a piece of wood (glad to hear you stayed well clear of the whirling saw jobbie!)

I love that you always think about what is going on in the world and apply it here at SS! Perfect theme! I love your project and one word....it says so much though. Hope mine qualifies, because there are so many words...but the theme of it fits in with yours I think.
