WOYWW #216 - Personalized Birthday Card

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  Today is Wednesday, and you know what that means!  I am sharing what is on my work desk with you!  Thank you to Julia of Stamping Ground for this desk-hopping (snooping) fun!

Today I am working on a personalized birthday card for a 3-year-old boy.  I decided to use this set of stamps that are letter stamps shaped like animals.  I also decided to use various animal print stamps for the background.  Lots of inks of various colors on my desk today as well.



You will see I have a Diet Pepsi on my desk.  It sure has been hot, so no hot tea for me!



I plan to visit as many of you as I can today.  I hope the week ahead is a good one for all!

Until next time!

Oh that card is so cute!! Just right for a three year old. Hot drinks are supposed to cool you down, but it makes me the opposite, so it's Pepsi Max or Squash for me! Happy WOYWW! ♥ Karen ♥ 92 x

Hi Winnie, thanks for swinging by my blog - love the card, using Alpha Stamps is fun. Who are the inks by, they are really gorgeous. It is so hot here in NYC, my drink of choice is Seltzer right now. Cx #60

Hi Winnie, Happy WOYWW.

Thanks for visiting, yes I hope the weather will break, they say it will for the weekend then get hot again until September!
Sooty was called that when we got him, he had an owner before us until he was 10 months old. He was jet black then but has turned silver on his back mostly.
I would hate to be travelling to work, glad I gave it up over a year ago now. I should work part time I guess, but haven't so far!

Your animal alphabet is great, I will be searching for one now! Love the card.

Sorry it's so late, but I had to go out during the day. I love this design for a card: the animal print background and those animal letters are just right for a 3yr old. Happy woyww! Julie Ann #17

Thanks for stopping by my desk. I'd love to see photos of your Pretty in Pink Paris room. Even moving into a new craft room,I still have stuff all over. I haven't gotten to use my UTEE yet, I ordered a new heat gun too, and it hasn't arrived yet. But I can't wait to use it. Great card. I love the stamps you used. I need more alphabet style stamps. Have a great weekend!!! (((HUGS)))

Funny aren't we - I drink more tea in the heat than I ever normally do. Even gone onto a vanilla chai and I'm having it black. Stranger things will never happen! Those stamps are just FUN!

Those are great letters for children, and I am sure you will get loads of use out of them. Thank you for your visit this week, and I am sorry to hear about you feeling so bad on the train, very distressing and frightening for you. I have taken to carrying a water bottle everywhere I go at the moment in an attempt to avoid dehydration. My son was warned, when he went to Australia for six months, that if he did not want to go to the loo, he was not drinking enough, and I have heeded that advice over the past few weeks in the heat here. Hope you are feeling much cooler and hydrated now. have a good week. xx Maggie #38
