But not today because Wednesdays are the day we all visit The Stamping Ground for a taste of What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday.
Because I’ve been away for a few days (see previous post) I’ve been catching up on a few cards for a friend who asks me to make all her cards for her, so my desk this morning has the makings of an Anniversary card that I was half way through………. and the usual mess that I always seem to work in.
Here’s the finished card, made using the beautiful Basic Gray Cappella papers.
I just love the colour range in this collection.
My card is decorated with a covered chipboard heart, handmade paper roses and some tiny gemstones for a touch of added glitz.
Next I made a birthday card using the July template from Kathy’s Waffle Sketch File
More Basic Gray papers for this one but this time they are from my ‘Marrakech’ pad that’s been hanging around for what seems like a life time.
I’m trying to use it all up but I’m not quite there yet….will be soon though and then I will have an excuse to go out and buy another new pad. (as if I need an excuse. Lol!)
Also this week I can also show you another couple of those boxes that I’ve been making, seeing as I now know my dear friend Sharon has received hers.
The original was in an old edition of Craft Stamper and it was made using using the beautiful Wrought Iron Gate stamp from Paper Artsy. You can see the first one I made at the end of this post Here
I’ve used papers printed from the Glenda Waterworth Artylicious ‘Butterfly Bliss’ CD to decorate the box and filled all the little drawers with jewelry findings and the centre tube with beads and I’ve made some beaded charms to decorate the five tags.
Click on the pictures for a better look.
And here’s a glimpse of the third box, this one is for my friend Nicki in Switzerland.
It’s basically the same as Sharon’s but Nicki’s is filled with sewing things and the centre tube with buttons.
So that’s about all there is to show you for now.
I’m not sure if there’ll be much to show you next week as I’m going to see the new Harry Potter film tomorrow and I’m at a big family party at the weekend.
It seems that I don’t do anything or go anywhere for ages and then it all comes along together , not that I’m complaining but hopefully there’ll be a least some small thing to share come next Wednesday, so until then………..
