Whats On Your Work Wednesday 143...

This week I did some tidying & re organizing of my crafty space and in the interim I found (although to be honest with you I didn't know I had lost them) loads of papers I have received free with various craft magazines. So I sifted through them & decided to have a mess with these Bird Cage & Chandeliers papers from Making Cards designed by Nancy Watt. I have used various stamp sets I had that are along the same theme.


I invested in the new Indigo Blu Flitter Glu to use with gilding flakes, so far I have only had a play with it on scrap card to see how you do it kind of thing. But the results are amazing! Its going to get used quite a bit! I must buy more gilding flakes now (any excuse to go shopping :)

Sorry its only a short post but time is at a premium for me at the minuet so going to carry on & have a play with all the stuff on the pic's and get some desk visiting done too. If you would like to join in with this fab blog desk hop on over to Julia our leaders blog at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com come & join in the big weekly snoop that is WOYWW....keep well & warm everyone!

Wow, I love that chandelier paper and matching script paper.

Your cards are lovely and I really love the one on the left as I have never tried this type of folded card!
So effective.

Great idea to use up those free papers, must admit I nearly always bin mine as I don't like the shiny ones.

I love what you've done with the birdcage stamp... are those birdcage tags in the background? Too cool! Things are looking quite tidy in your neck of the woods. Isn't it fun to find "lost" items? I have a stash of those magazine freebies too. I need more time! Or to clone myself.

Bleubeard wanted to say hi to Mr. Binxz. He suggests a play date where they both eat and sleep and eat and sleep. He has rather limited thoughts (grin).
