What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday???

A cleanish desk for me this week to show on the WOYWW 222 - I had a big tidy up on the weekend so I could make cards on Saturday - must tell you that I Skype with my friend Vikki most Saturdays, she was the biggest life saver for me when we moved to Western Australia (3500kms away) 2 years ago and kept me inspired and company while hubby was off playing golf...we've moved back to Queensland and now only 720kms away so we still skype ....we're pretty good and getting the housework done on Saturdays now :-)
On my desk today is a Christmas card I made this morning and have just posted, then to the left is the makings of a birthday card for sister-in-law's 50th and the pinkish cards are Baby Thank You's for our daughter who's due next month....I'm trying to get ahead as we'll be away for a month - have to go south and give our rental property a splash of paint and some reno's so we can put it on the market. Well if you'd like to join in and check out some other busy desks across the world pop over to Julia's blog and play along...must go and see how many desks I can visit today harder than you think Cheers and happy crafting

Merry Christmas Bow

How Charming

  Another Christmas card for my stash using two blog challenges.  Merry Monday#73 - to include Red, Green and Kraft with either ribbon, twine or burlap. And at Winter Wonderland this week - to include a Charm....I don't have too many Christmas charms but found this little gold bell. Friend Vikki sent me the die cut holly branch so I inked and embossed it to give it a shine and I think just finished off the card.  Thanks for taking a peek

Male Happy Birthday


Today I'm trying to catch up with a few cards I need this month as I'm going to be away from my desk for the next 4 weeks.  Thanks to friend Vikki for her inspiration on the weekend to dig out my Distress Inks again and here I've made the background for my hubby's card - just sponged and blended horizontal layers of lots of different inks on water colour card and flicked on a few drops of water as it dried. I've made this card for the Inspired by Stamping August Challenge - Masculine.  Thanks for taking a peek
