Whats On Your Work Wednesday 124....its cold!

Hello everyone, its been quite a while since I joined in on WOYWW! For some reason time just runs away with me of late & before I know where I am its Wednesday night & I have no time to join in. So this week I HAVE MADE TIME! I think its something I must consciously do to keep my blogging going. As you can see by the state of my desk, not lots in the way of crafting going on, but more sorting out boxes of Christmas card stuff. I have about 6 boxes of papers & stamps & card kits & made cards from last year to sort out. I promised myself I was NOT going to buy anything festive this year & use what I had, alas Kanban brought out a Blockbuster on C&C last month and I ended up getting that, then some Vellums in The Range & so on & so on!......well there you go I suppose!

Here are a two cards I made recently!

This is a card I made using some of the Paper Cellar's Victorian Classic papers. I like the way it turned out colour wise, very muted but nice to look at! The peel off's are all stuck on to Acetate & cut out to give it some dimension and the Hydrangea rub on's are from La Blanch. I highlighted the paper with some Martha Stewart Glitter for a bit of extra sparkle. The made brad is from Papermainia.

The next one here was using Kanban's Kensington card stock & die cuts. I did use some Tim Holtz Distress ink on the card blanc inside & out and all the die cuts, just for that added aged look. I stamped the Papermainia banner first & embossed it using cosmic shimmer gold then cut out & coloured it & then stamped the sentiment & layered on to black card & cut out again.


Well as you can see my blog has changed a bit! Some of it NOT by choice, I though I would have a "Look" at different blogger templates, just a look!!!! but then discovered I had completely changed it, so until I figure out what's what, it will remain this way for now!

Might post a few pics from France again soon as I have just come back from the beautiful city of Carcassonne. I had a trip around some Cathar Castles & Wine Vineyard in the South and also went to visit Rennes Le Ch√Ęteau to find out more about its mystery? Very pretty place, but at the top of a very very steep hill! Anyway till next time, take care everyone & thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Ah, the old 'I won't buy any more stash until I use up whatever I've already got' ploy!! I do that too!!! And then I see some luscious fabric that might disappear unless I buy some, oh deary me. I've GOT to use up some of what I've already got otherwise my craft room might explode :)
Hugs, LLJ xx

Oooh - you've been to Carcassone!!! Did you, or did you not, think that as you walked in the main gate, it looked just like Diagon Alley? I did! LOL...love that place.

Your cards, as always, are gorgeous. Missed seeing you here lately!
