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

Hello all, sorry for being AWoL last week, time just seems to be on fast forward at the moment!

Here is my desk this week, in a complete mess and mid-way through a card using one of the lovely LOTV stamps I won a while back, it's looking a bit boring at the moment but is about to be blinged up a bit :o)

Lot's of other stuff just hanging around, I really need to have a good tidy up! But not now as I'm off over to Julia's for a snoop at some other desks :o) thanks for stopping by x

Hello all, just a quickie from me this week, I'm just finishing off another card, I have alot of September Birthday's which are rapidly creeping up on me! I also need to do a rush card for a knitting enthusiast which is proving a challenge to find a suitable image!

An Altered Box! My First Attempt!

I've been wanting to have a go at altering something for ages and keep loads of boxes etc to do just that but have never get around to it.

So here is my first attempt, it was an A4 copy paper box originally. I covered the box with a canvass type material and lined it with card. I then inked and distressed all the strips and circles to edge the box with. The original lid wouldn't fit after all of the added layers but luckily I had another box with a lid that was just slightly bigger so I covered that in the same way and it all fits together nicely.

For the panel on the top I cut, inked, stamped and distressed a rectangle and heart, the heart was stamped with versamark then embossed with gold powder, I then just added the bronze heart with wings and corners just to finish off. I'm quite happy with my first altered project and hope to get chance to do more.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Totally Papercrafts - Monochrome
The Crafty Pad - Things with Wing (Winged Heart)
That Craft Place - Steampunk
Incywincy - Anything But a Card
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Clean and Simple
Fab n Funky - Anything But a Card
Sarah Hurley - Alter Something

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

Hello all! Well I missed last weeks WOYWW and it still seems to have come around quickly!

This week I've got the ongoing advent calendar on my desk! I had been awaiting some gems I ordered from China! they took a month to arrive so it's been on hold a while, I'm painstakingly adding lots of gems to each of the boxes to really bling it up, you can currently see the backs of each of the boxes, I've decorated those so when the numbered drawer has been opened you turn it around so you know it's gone. The little pair of snowmen you can see over to the right will sit in the middle once it's finished, along with a tree and some parcels, nearly finished now :o)

That's it for this week, if your interested why I missed last week scroll down a bit :o) I'm off over to Julia's now to take a peek at some more desks. Have a great day. x

I missed last weeks WOYWW as I finally went for my Christmas pressie from my lovely boyfriend, he got me a Supercar Experience, we'd been waiting to book it as the weather has been so awfull, but we went last wednesday, and here I am in a Lamborghini Gallardo :o) rather suits me I think!
 And here I am in an Audi R8 :o)
We had a great day, very exciting :o) Would love to do it again.
