WOYWW 21st December, 2016

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog

This is a toaster cover I made.  It's card and duct tape. Rather basic, but it does the job.

A Sympathy card.

A Thinking of You card.

Happy WOYWW.


  1. Your toaster cover is very ingenious! Great card designs.
    Wishing you a peaceful and joyful Christmas Anne x #13 (at the moment :-) )

  2. Who cares what you made it with, it looks great!
    Thanks for all the fun and friendship this year Sue - I appreciate your kindness and being such a staunch follower.
    Happy Christmas!

  3. Fab makes, a toaster cover with card? Gr8 idea

    Seasons Greetings and Happy WOYWW


  4. Love the toaster cover Sue, but don't do what I did. I've made a toaster cover out of same colour as our curtains. Fine in fact great, until one day I put on the wrong power point and the toaster went on and not the kettle, ... now that wouldn't ,after except I hadn't released the button so it was still in toast mode, fine if off not if on.
    Sigh one singed toaster cover. 😑
    Great card work too.
    Blessings upon you as we remember Jesus' birthday and a healthy 2017.
    Happy WOYWW!!

    Shaz, My toaster isn't plugged in when not in use. Glad you noticed yours before the cover caught fire.

    Thanks. I find it difficult to make sympathy cards.

    KathyK, Thank you.

    LLJ, Thank you.

    I've told you I love checking out your blog.

    Yes, it is harder this time of year. My friend had lost her mum.

  15. What a fantastic idea of using the duct tape on card stock to create your toaster cover! So pretty, and when it is time to replace, it's not a big deal! Thanks for sharing your creative idea, Sue. Very pretty business-size cards, too! Just a brief not to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas, and to thank you for your on-line friendship. I hope that 2017 is especially good to you, and that the promise of new beginnings creates wonderful journeys! hugs, de
