WOYWW 423


It's ages since I joined in What's on your Workdesk, but I thought I'd call in at last, so here are my pictures for WOYWW 423. If you don't know what this is all about, please click on the link and have a look and join in the fun by showing what's on your workdesk and then having a look at the links to see everyone else's.

We moved at the end of September 2015. My craft stuff got put away as best as it could and I've never yet had the opportunity to fully sort everything ... I like to be organised and just haven't been able to do so because of other things going on in life, things that were priorities.

So, at long last, I've been having a more consistent sort out and am gradually getting everything where I want it. The aim is to have everything labelled so that I don't waste time looking for what I want to use.

Anyway, I'm hoping that very soon I'll be able to show the rest of my craft room with everything sorted and labelled. But in the meantime, here is my desk today. To the left of where I sit there's a card waiting to be written and posted, some Christmas greetings labels etc and three cards that have been made for DT challenges, the top one being for today's Penny's challenge 337 - you can read about the card here.

My much needed hayfever tablets are there, a USB fan that's very useful atm and other bits and pieces.



To the right of where I sit there are little piles of pieces of card, ribbons etc that still need to be sorted and put into the right place and a bag of waste paper bits for the recycling bin.



I hope to return again next week and show some more of my craft room. Now I'm off to link this for WOYWW 423 and then have a look at what others have been up to.

Penny's challenge 337


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 337, where the theme is anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

I used the Little blue button image: everyone needs a hug, kindly supplied by them as sponsors of the challenge, coloured with spectrum noir pens and mounted with foam tape on to the shaped card, having used pieces of gingham trim and gems, although generating the sentiment on computer, printing and die cut with todo cross hatch die, edging with ink and raised up with foam pad.

For a niece's special birthday


I was commissioned to make a card for a friend's niece who was going to be 50, but without the number on it! I was asked to make it with a country garden theme.

I used a Hunkydory piece of card with a background garden scene (unfortunately, doesn't show up well here) and I put the country garden scene in the 'window' of the picture. I generated the greeting on computer, printed and die cut with a todo cross hatch die, using a bigger one to cut the gold mirror mat, both of them were embossed and the greeting panel was inked before taking out of the die.

The flower and butterfly strip was from Hobbycraft and the little 3D bird stickers from The Works.
