Happy Winter Solstice! This is what I sent my Friend's this year instead of a card!

The Horns on the Wooden Deer Head have been heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmers Silver Shine Metallic powder then coverd with Stickles Silver Glitter Glue.
I wont be posting for WOYWW this week so anyone that's here hoping to see what's going on my desk, sorry nothing at the mo! But I hope your all well & warm! Anyhow off to carry on my Yuletide Celebrations! I have a big glass of Mead waiting with my Name on it!
Thank you for your visit & Brightest Of Blessings to you all on this special day!

WOYWW....Dekkies & Doings!

Well my desk was full of Yuletide bits n bobs! All stuff & things I have been messing with this week, plus a few items I purchased during a visit for a tablecloth to The Range, Cant seem to go in there without ending up in the Craft department!

This is how the Card ended up from last weeks desk I made for my sister's birthday I used my Slice for all the Die cuts you see, various SD cards used, Vintage Findings, Wedding, Think Pink.
I had to make an expanding type of envelope for this card as it was 8x8. I always end up decorating them, cant resist! Again it was using Slice die cuts & some lace tape & a Kay & Co Die cut tag.

And finally as an end to my Festive weeks of blogging here's the dekkies I did at the weekend. This year I went for a Red & Gold theme & some fresh Greenery from the Garden. My Yule cards are all done & posted but for one I have to finish for my Friend. Its another Gorjuss Design I am using again. I will post it here when its done. Well hope you have done your dekkies too & managed to get your WOYWW in quicker than me! Think its the latest I have ever entered? If you would like to share you work desk on a Wednesday too hop over to our leader Julia's Blog at

WOYWW 79.....& Frost....& Kung Fu Binxz!

Yet another chilly frosty day here! Although its crystal clear sunny skies! All in all a beaut of a day! My desk is busy at the moment making my Sisters Birthday card (hope shes not looking) Been using my Slice quite a bit this week! And Craftwork Cards Yummy Scrummy Papers, lovely really nice quality. The pic's of the cards are the last I will be showing now for Yuletide. Been making a lot of cards since September, so now there done its time to get on with others! I made both of these Cards using the now familiar Ella Blue papers from g.c.d Studios & the lovely PSX french script stamp. Had to show you my beautiful Big Silver Birch Tree in the front garden covered in Frost! It looked beautiful. And took this pic of Mr Binxz as he was having a wash & he looks like hes doing a Kung Fu Kick!!! Soooo cute! Couldn't resist sharing it! Hope your all well & getting on with the festivities, still not done any prezzie shopping yet! Yikes better get my skates, or rather Ski's on! Thanks for the visit & I will be perusing later on!

Well what can I say! In a word Snow! Its all over the place, bet you have some wherever you are! We were doing ok till yesterday, and it still coming down today! Well at least it give me time to redecorate the kitchen, been saying I will do it for an age, so its finally done!
Anyhow on to the interesting stuff! My pic of the desk today includes some lovely Damask Foiled Card stock & Acetate from Kanban & Some Pro Markers I have been messing with! On the second pic you can see I have been having a go at some heat Embossing on parchment & heat proof acetate, the Cup & Saucer was January's Free Stamp from Craft Stamper Magazine. This was my first go at using the Markers and trying out some shading, think it will take me a bit to get into them though, as I don't have a lot of Stamps that I can use for colouring in. Although I did get sent a great site for Digi Images I will be trying out. I have also been using, yet again....Ella Blue, I found this Lovely, although a bit sinister looking,, with what looks like a scary bald doll under his arm! Its a Grand Adhesion's from Kay & Co from last Yuletide. It just fit with the colours of the Blues & Browns of the Papers & the Ribbon's from a Roll I was lucky enough to grab at an Antique Market in France, really cheap too! In fact I ended up with a bag of 6 rolls for a mear 2 Euros! The last pic is of a really nice Cuttlebug Snowy House Embossing folder. Think I am nearly there with Yuletide cards now, just got my Sisters & Brothers to make, be glad really, want to get on to something different! Take care all of you in this weather & hope your all doing ok!
