WOYWW 148 just a quicky

Hi Wednesday Snoopers
Just a really quick post from me this week as stupid internet has been intermitent all evening and couldn't get on line.

Anyway here's my desk , a  bit messy but not very productive.
There's a couple of new stamps from papermania featuring the drawings of Michael Powell. I have been a fan of his wobbly cross stitch designs for a while.
Wondering what' in the box on the left? Scroll down to see.

I have finally finished D2's wedding invites, can you see the Wedding Gecko?
She is stamped  inside too.

Finally here is a picture of D1 just after she ran the Olympic park run at the Olympic stadim on Saturday . . . how cool is that ?

As it is now gone Midnight  I'm off to bed, see you later at stamping-ground. That was quite quick... for me!!
 If you dont know what it is all about . .  where have you been for the last ???? years.
I see Julia has had a good rant about the petrol, dont blame her either... go girl!

  21. Great job with the invites, very professional, and congratulations to your daughter on her achievement.
    I'm another one who's late this week - that's what happens when you have a 15 year old GSon staying who hogs the PC.

  22. Gorgeous invitation and just love that gecko! What make is that one? Well done to your daughter for the marathon. Very brave. I am allergic to running but will cycle for 70 miles just for fun!!
    I cannot blame Julia for her petrol rant! We had to have the police at the local petrol station and it was all men in flat caps who probably only do 5 miles a week and were filling their cars up!!

  23. Great card and big well done to your daughter, you must be very proud :)
