WOYWW - 1st Anniversary, how cool!

Yes folks it's celebrations time over at the ever delightlful Ms Julia's.  If you didn't know already it's the first anniversary of the cult known as WOYWW so cream cakes and tea are in order methinks.  Mine's white no sugar please Julia and I'll have the cream slice ;o)
For the anniversary challenge I've made a felt vessel with fabric flowers, the WOYWW acronym is sewn onto one of the leaves.  It's on the desk today, but will live on the windowsill just to the right of my desk.  Some may remember the fabric paper I did a few weeks ago, that was intended for bunting but when I saw this fabulous felt I just had to use it.  In the main pic you'll see there are a couple of extra flowers - card with sequins, these were the 2nd lot of flowers, I decided to put them in the vase too rather than chuck 'em.   The first flowers I made were the yellow felt ones strewn on the desk but I finally settled on the fabric ones.  Also on my desk is some card I was playing about with yesterday, stamping with white acrylic paint then colouring with Distress Inks - not for anything in partcular.  I stamped it with an Anna Griffin flourish which I love which is on top of the card.  You can see a bit of green on my new Big Shot; all will be revealed next week, if not before.  Can't wait to see what people have made for WOYWWAC so off for a nosey, a cuppa and cream cake :o)

Oh Anne, love em, and you don't have to water them either. I'm interested in the pink swirly thingy, looks very interesting. The journal is for a Hels Angels swap, decorate a double page then pass it on, each month we get a different person's journal.

Oh Anne they're utterly delicious - life long flowers are just the best. I'm with you on the felt too, love it - but am glad it spoke to you not me! Can you hang on a sec - just whipping some more cream - becasue of course, all the cakes and slices are home made!
