card making for once (WOYWW)!

Well as the post title suggests I have been busy card making, but my desk (for WOYWW) is still looking relatively tidy...this is because the latest card (face down in the centre) is for Tim for our wedding anniversary and is being kept under wraps!  Also on my desk is my trusty mug of tea (in need of  a refill), our tickets to Dino Jaws (we are having a much needed family day out this weekend assuming Tim is well enough or I can borrow a wheel chair), and various stamps recently used on cards. The cables are from my laptop which is to the right of the desk and out of view.
It was Father's Day here in the UK last Sunday and this is the card I made for my Dad, who is a bridge player. I cut up and mounted a King, and used washi tape in the background
This is the one I made for my Father-in-law who is self confessed twitcher (made using the free stamp from Craft Stamper magazine).
That is all from me for now, but I couldn't go without showing you a quick photo of Alex who had a street dance exam last weekend... this is him just before the exam... we will get the results in a few weeks.  Have a wonderful week everyone.

Hello Caro. Oh, what a lovely tidy desk - trust your anniversary is a really great day. Have a special family time this weekend - I do hope you can borrow a wheelchair so you all get to go out.
Take care.
God bless.

Hi Caro, what a sweetie your son is. Your desk looks as though it is resting for a while awaiting your arrival.

Hullo Caro, well two lovely cards beautifully made... and must admit thought that desk was super tidy. We can hire wheelchairs from our chemists for a nominal fee, do u have that in UK.?
Thank you for popping over. Shaz in Oz xxx#31

Hi Caro,

Lovely cards I am sure they were received really well. I love that bird stamp, now I have something to look forward to getting when the magazine finally arrives in Australia. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.

Hi Caro, bit late getting round to visiting this week, visitors and other things getting in the way.
Love your Fathers' Day cards, simple but effective. Long time since I needed a Fathers' Day card.
Hope you managed to get outthis weekend and that Tim was well enough, and I hope Alex did well with his street dance exam.
Bless you
