What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday - week 343

worldwide woywwOh wow it's been quite a while since my last WOYWW post, just been busy and not at my desk.
So here's a pic of my desk this afternoon...yep I've not been there today either... but... I have been out at my friend Vikki's for a session today - a well needed escape from the house and some me time.
I made a few cards, and have been experimenting with some Distress Ink backgrounds for silhouette images. 
And here's a few others I created for some blog challenges that I still need to post.
As this is the last Wednesday for 2015, I'd like to wish you all a Very Happy New Year and may 2016 be a healthy, safe and prosperous one for you and your families... and hope to see you on WOYWW, sharing you desks, mess and creative projects.  Cheers

Merry Christmas

In  my stash of Christmas cards I have a few 'special' people whom I take some time to create their card... this is one of those and my first shaker card for a very long time.  I created the background with Distress Inks sprayed with Perfect Pearls.  Then used my dies to make the framed window for my glittery bits. And used an ornament die cut where I paper pieced the coloured sections back in and for the sentiment die cut I added a gold star to highlight the star on top  of the tree. I am posting to Just Us Girls #322 - Word Prompt - Merry, also to Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge for December - theme - A Star and finally to Simon Says Monday challenge - a Christmas theme.  Thanks for taking a  peek

Friday Smiles

Share a smile...
Hi I've been absent from blogging for a few weeks, but I'm back to share some happiness with Annie.
So this week firstly we're all smiling as we had 3+ hours of rain on Wednesday evening - our area is officially now in drought and living with level 2 water restrictions -so the good soaking was a wonderful relief.
Next hubby and I have been busy trying to sort our stuff downstairs and now that my kitchen cupboards are complete we were able to bring up 4 boxes of my gear.... now that might seems ok but our son has a kitchen full of stuff so I've spent today trying to sort 2 kitchens into 1. It doesn't look much different now  - messy, but the keeping stuff fits in the cupboards.... a garage sale is on the books.
 Now of course I have to include some happy snaps of the grandkids...
here's Mia (5 weeks) - all smiles
 and Nanna and Pa with the girls in their Christmas outfits lining up to have Christmas photos at the local shopping center.

Now here's my chuckle... this is a zucchini from our new vege garden - yes it's round..... the laugh is that hubby bought home seedlings and they've done really well but to our amazement the fruit is round and we thought we had a malfunction - he was certainly baffled. Well another visit to the store proved that yes he had picked up a punnet of a new variety.
Thanks for stopping by and if you've some happy thoughts to share please do over at Annies blog.
