What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday???

Hello All! Not alot going on on my desk this week, I've been making some little baubles for the Xmas tree which will be going in the advent calendar (scroll down to next post for piccie of advent calendar). I've made them using white Fimo then painted the blue ones with some old nail polishes which happened to be the perfect colours and also had some sparkle in them!! And the white ones have been embossed with white sparkly embossing powder. There's also some snowflakes which have also been embossed and are ready to stick onto the corners of the calendar.

There's a bit of new stash over to the left, I picked up some doilies and twine at the weekend, and I was lucky enough to win a challenge with one of my cards, the prize was a £10 Lili of The Valley voucher, so you will see the two stamps I picked, they're two bear ones, so cute! can't wait to make some cards with them. Right I'm going to pop over to Julia's to take a peek at what you've all been doing, thanks for stopping by! x

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday??!!!

Hello All! This week finds me doing a bit more on the "ongoing" Advent Calendar project.

On my desk you will see I'm making some little parcels to go in the display part of the calendar and you may also just be able to see some attempts at making some miniature Xmas tree baubles from Fimo (I've never used Fimo before), there will be an Xmas tree in the display part too and my plan was to make 24 little baubles so there could be one in each drawer (along with a treat) to put on the tree as you count down to Xmas, however I'm not sure if I like my baubles.... I may buy some beads and use them instead.... my other half says they're fine and it's nicer if I make them, but I'm unsure at the moment!

To the side of my desk is a "temporary" table which is actually always there as I never have enough room on my desk, you will see the advent calendar sat on there being pondered over on what to do next :o) oh and you will also see part of my pocket dragon collection keeping their beady eyes on what I'm up to!

Right, better hop over to Julia's and take a peak at some more desks, thanks for stopping by, have a nice day x

Summery Roller Skating Themed Card

Well, this was a challenge! I was asked to make a themed card for a lady who judges roller skating competitions. After alot of head scratching I thankfully came across this digi stamp on the Letraset site. I gave the boot just a hint of colour using promarkers and the blender pen, competition skates are white you see, but it definitely needed a hint of colour. I set to layering up some gorgeous papers from the First Edition Summer Breeze pad, I love the flowery design and it's loaded with glittery accents. I made the rosette using loops of ribbon, I punched out a small circle just big enough to emboss the sentiment on. I then added another little ribbon, pearls and a star charm to finish off.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Punch Drunk
Crafty Creations - How Charming
Truly Scrumptious - Flower Power
Crazy Challenge - Recipe (ribbon, pearls, dies, punches)
Sparkles Challenge - Summer Fun
Sentimental Sundays - Summer Fun
Craft Your Days Away - Bingo! (pearls, ribbon, glitter)

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday??! WOYWW??

Hello to all, not sure how this Wednesday has sneaked around already but hey it's here! I've had 2 more lovely ATC's arrive from Spyder and Elizabeth (see below) and some fabby seeds from Lunch Lady Jan! can't wait to see them flourish :o) Thanks so much to all of you!

On my desk I am just finishing a little thank you card, with a cute little hedgehog on it and all of the bits and pieces that I've been using to make it are laying around. You will also see all the ATC's that I've received on display at the back, I need to find somewhere a little safer for them so they don't get damaged!

Think that's about it so I'll hop on over to Julia's to take a peek at some more desks! Thanks for stopping by. x

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday??? WOYWW??

Hello all! Well there's not much on my desk this week, not had much time for crafting over the last week, I'm just finishing off one last ATC for Spyder as I was pleased to hear she changed her mind about taking part in the ATC swap, but since I had sent all the ones I had made to their homes I'm just making one last one, I've turned it over so as not to spoil the surprise :o)

You will also see on proud display, 2 ATC's received from Mark and Jill (detailed photo below) they are both fab and I love them! So much work in them both. Then in the last 2 photos are my ATC's that I sent out last week, I think they've all arrived with their intended recipients now. These were my first attempts at ATC's, I enjoyed having a go at them :o)
