WOYWW 366

Good morning from a grey and slightly drizzly corner of Kent.

Today I'm bringing you a very untidy desk for once.. and a lot of clutter surrounding it.. why? Well.. because I've been making cards.. and for some reason I always seem to make more mess when I'm doing this!

I'm joining in the What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday 366 which is currently being hosted by LunchLadyJan while Julia, (whose baby this is), is recovering from surgery.. wishing you well Julia!

So here is my cluttered desk (and room)


Also.. in some other news.. my second layout featured here has been featured on the Stuck?! ChallengeBlog.. a first for me so I'm thrilled! However, being a bit of a technophobe... I don't know how to add a 'Featured Layout' blinkie to my blog.. so I'm just sharing my news all over the place instead! lol here is the LO that was featured in case you don't have time to hop over for a look see too.



Well, anyway, enough of that! Here are the cards I've been making too


 I confess.. I made the dark one for a challenge.. and I'm not keen, so that will be taken apart and re-used elsewhere.. but the pink one came out as I envisaged. After photographing it I added the word 'Mum' under the happy birthday as I decided to send it to my husbands Mum as she owns a 3' tall ceramic pink flamingo.. who resides in her bathroom (don't ask!) I had made her a different card previously but when I got this cute little die free with a magazine I knew I had to make another! No doubt the original will get sent to someone else instead now. At least it's sent and on it's way now.

The final card I made is also for a challenge but it is also for my son and DILs 3rd wedding anniversary. I got this sketch from the Paper Craft Crew Blog where I am delighted that one of my cards have been chosen for one of their 'Top Picks' too .. how exciting! ( I worked out how to add their blinkie a few weeks ago but I can't do the other one! Doh!)



and here is the card I made using the required three Stampin' Up elements. The Perpetual Calendar Heart stamp, the background paper is from the Going Places paper collection and the tiny 'for you' stamp is from the Sweet Valentine set.


...so that's it for another week.. I'm not sure where these weeks roll by too.. they do seem to fly by!

Thanks for stopping by.. do let me know you've visited.

  3. I really do like your style of crafting! The LO is fantastic, I'm not surprised it was chosen to feature in that challenge and the card is fun yet elegant. I'm not a fan of 'mushy', yours is the card I'd buy in the shops :-)

  5. Great cards and LO .... I don't think your desk is messy at all. I can turn a clear desk into a reject shop after making one card. Have a lovely week.

  6. Love the cards you've made, they are great. If you want to add a blinkie, just click on the image on the site, then 'SAVE AS@ and save it somewhere on your pc you can find it again. Desktop is always good. Them, in your blog, click top right on 'DESIGN', then in the list on the left hand side, click on 'LAYOUT'. On this page, you will see small boxes, with 'ADD A GADGET' in them. Click on one of thses,you will get a pop up list, scrioll down till you find one that says 'ADD AN IMAGE'. Click on that, and follow the instructions in the box, then when done, click 'SAVE' at the bottom of the box, then on 'SAVE ARRANGEMENT' on the top right of the screen, and you're done. Hope that helps you- you NEED to get your well earned Blinkie on your blog! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xx

  18. WOW you have been busy, no wonder you have a messy craft space.Well done in getting your layout featured, not surprised really as its stunning the detail is amazing. As for the flamingo I can see why you would want to use it I'm sure it will make your mother in laws day. I like the first card it would make a great man's card,they are always so difficult to do. Belated woyww wishes andrea 14#.

  21. Congrats on your work featured at those blogs... I see you managed to put the badge on your blog as it is visible in your side menu - YAY! Thanks for your visit to my blog earlier this week. Instead of creating, I sat on my balcony reading and enjoying the good weather last week. That's why I am late with visiting woyww-friends.. but today it's raining and it's a perfect morning to visit blogs so here I am, wishing you a beautiful Sunday! Hug from Holland, Marit #30
