HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOYWW - WEEK 52!!!!!!!!!




Hi Girls!
We are all celebrating today - I am very happy to be a part of this lovely group of cardmakers, scrapbookers and artists in general! At the moment I am still in England - my flight on Thursday was cancelled so I was rebooked and will be flying home today! I will blog about my travel tomorrow as today is no time for that! I will come and visit all your blogs to see what kind of projects you have made but I will be late as I am coming home in the evening! Still all your critical eyes can have a look at my humble contribution!
I would also like to thank Glen for the Beautiful Blogger award! I will "claim" it as soon as I get home!
I wonder what all you girls have been creating! I must be honest and tell you that anything that is not a card is way out of my comfort zone! I don't even do fancy folds or easel cards not to mention anything else so making something 3 dimensional was really scary for me! Still as a WOYWW "warrior" (snoopior rather) I had to tackle this and I did!
Let me show you what I made and tell you how I made it and also tell you what the philosophy behind it is!
Here it is my humble contribution:







So I painted an old frame with pink put a green background in it which is actually a designer paper that looks like a grass field, then I searched for hours to find the right letters for WOYWW and then printed them out and cut them our - I don't have any dies for letters! Then I punched out over a 100 daisies, put a yellow dot in the middle of each one with a copics pen and then a dot of glossy accents - quite fiddly! I also stamped a heart and a butterfly and cut them out and decorated the whole lot with daises - the big daises were punched out too and they have pearls from stash in the middle! Here are a few photos from the making of....












And at last here is how it hangs in my pink room:







And now to explain what it means - the daises of course represent each one of you girls - ther is well over a hundred of them on there so each one of you have one! The heart is Julia and the butterfly is Mr. Blogger who is the one that makes it possible to fly from one desk to another! (Although I must say he is verz naughty today!) So there now you know!
Ok then I better start packing my bags! Ladies enjoy your birthday snoop I will join you as soon as I can!
Lots of love and hugs to you all, especially to Julia who has made this all possible for us! It has been a lovely year lets have another one!
