Well, I know we are all always saying that the week between What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday’s seems to get shorter and shorter, but in my case it really does.
As you know, I was down in Bournemouth last weekend for a rendezvous with Captain Jack Harkness, aka, John Barrowman and despite my reservations, his show was absolutely fantastic.
He really comes across as being a family guy and throughout the show they were showing pictures of close family members and telling little stories about them. At one point he was telling a very funny story about his parents who are both in there 70’s and as he was telling us how they ‘kept things fresh’ two people came out on stage dressed as a builder and a NY cop, it was so funny. Turned out they were actually his mum and dad.
He was so proud of them both.
This weekend coming I’m away again and have to be up at silly o’clock on Friday morning to be on the coach for 5am bound for the Christmas markets of Cologne and a four day break, so I only have a few days to craft in this week, which brings me nicely to my desk.
As you can see from the photo my desk is in a bit of a frenzy.
The Christmas cards have been put on hold until I get back from my trip and the change I was talking about at the top of my post refers to me making a few birthday cards that are needed for the start of December.
The first is a card for a teenage boy, which just happens to be the theme on the Cupcake Craft challenge blog this week.
I always find it so hard to make cards for that age range and judging by my photo I must have pulled everything I own out of every cupboard and drawer, trying to come up with an idea or two.
In the end I had a look to see what templates were out there this week and found this one on the Sketch ‘n’ Stash blog.
I always find them a great starting point when I’m really stuck but eventually, with the help of the sketch I managed to make this:-
And here's the other couple of cards I made.
If you haven’t already, pop across to Julia’s at The Stamping Ground and give as a peek at what’s on your desk this week.
I myself need to get on and find my bigger case and get packing my wooly jumpers and thermals because according to the weather forecast we are in for some very cold weather while we’ve away. At least it’s not snowing like the last time I was in Cologne.
I'll be round to see as many as I can before the off on Friday, so get the coffee on!
Thanks for stopping by.
