Good morning hot deskers... where has this last week gone? I can't believe yet another week ahs gone by! So, today I am joining in Julias What's on Your Wordesk Wednesday again with her idea over on The Stamping Ground blog.  

Last week I was a lot more able to comment on all your fabulous blogs.. (apologies if I missed some of you) as Mum seems to be a little better and I have more time again. That said it hasn't stopped me from getting crafty again this week even though I was less in need of  de-stressing! Lol

So.. without further ado here is my desk yesterday afternoon.. it was soo messy because I have been frantically crafting this week on account that I am away next week so I needed to get ahead with some Chinese Whisper cards and layouts I needed to finish before I went.

I have also made a start on my Christmas cards and as, you may know, I now design for Merly Impressions  so I have been using the new Kaisercraft range to make lots of things..many of which I can't share with you yet, but here are ones I can. These have all been made with the Silent Night collection Paper Pad from their new collections.. lovely designs with a traditional theme and all the add ons too. Also you might like to know I've just taken delivery of the MOST amazing set of new gel pens.. also from Kaisercraft.. and they are just FABULOUS! .. they really are stunning..(and come in a great box where they don't all move about  so they will be travelling with me next week) they have neon pens, glitter pens, metallic pens and pastel pens..something for every occasion. I am so impressed with them... just have a look!

and here are the cards I made.. using the pens too.

Also, over the weekend, Hey Little Magpie held a weekend of challenges to help get us inspired and they provided sketches, bingo challenges etc so I joined in some of the fun. I don't think I'll get all the challenges done before I go away but I'll give it a good try!  

Here are some of the layouts I made for the challenges..and a couple of challenges over on UKS too.

I used my Counterfeit Kit from the CKCB for this one, the 'DT Member' one and the 'I Made it' one too

Finally I made two more cards, one for a friends birthday and one for the same friend who has just become a Nanny for the second time so I made a card for her and her hubby using my Cameo  

and that's it.. not much to show you!

I'm sorry I will not get to join in next week.. I have no doubt I will visit your blogs though while lazing on my sun lounger..ha ha. Have a great week..until then.. I'm off to have a snoop at all your work spaces. Thanks for the follows everyone!
