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.
