Whats On Your Work Wednesday 146!...times jogging on!

Well the weeks seem to fly by at the moment, there arnt enough days in the week! I always appear to be last minuet every time I do or go somewhere & that's just not me, dont what's going on! As you can see tonight I made the most of the time I have to make up some of my latest Hunkydory Adorable Scorable card kits. Good fun to make easy to co-ordinate as all the elemnets are there for you. I do add a lot of other bits n bobs to these kind of cards to add a touch of "My Style" to them! I love my new Tonic Scissors they are so easy to use with my rubbish hands (I have Rheumatoid Arthritis) my grip is getting worse & my fingers dont fit properly in to regular scissor handles any more! But with thes Taaaa Daaaaa! Easy!

As you can see this was some of the stash I purchased at the GNPE show In Harrogate at the weekend. I saw loads of demos by the like of Barbara Grey, Leoni Pojul Chloe Endean, whos stamps are lovely & just had to get the very versatile Dandilion & Bling Swirl. Looking forward ti trying out the Fab Foil & Embossing Glitter by WOW. Invested in a set of Grand Calibre Circle Dies, wanted them for a while! And other bits n bobs like ink pads & some of the super slim acrylic stamp blocks, easier again to hold for me! I look forward to finding time as soon as possible to have a good long crafty play with my new stash!

And finally it was my lovely Mums 80th Birthday and this was the card I made for her, she loved it! I like the easel circle cards, they look good for a special occasion!

I would like to thank everyone who commented on my blog on the last woyww I entered. It was so lovely for folks I had visited to stop by & leave me a comment. I really enjoy reading them & do value others opinions on cards I make, its good to have others around you for a bit of support & positivity! Thanks so much!

Enjoy your crafty week everyone!
And Happy Spring Equinox to all!

Great Northern Papercrafts Show Harrogate!

Just a quick post to ask if anyone is going to the Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza in Harrogate this Sunday? I have made my crafty shopping list and look forward to a Sunday of Demo's & spending! If you have never been and your able to get to it I would recommend a visit. Its a really good show, loads of stalls and demo's a great way to get ideas. If you are going and have received the new wonderful WOYWW badge from Julia, then get it on & show it off & lets see if we spot each other! Have a great weekend everyone & hope to post some show pic's in the week!

WOYWW 144.....a messy desk!

Well I must admit! This is quite a messy looking space for me, normally I am pretty tidy while crafting away. However I have had one of those days were things get pulled out I start something, then the phone rings......start doing something again.......then the phone rings! Argh.....distracting me on a day when I just wanted to get on & craft away the day! All the usual suspects on the desk, inks & punches & stamps.. an early Anna Griffin set. The purple storage box is full of peel off's. Some folk frown upon them still, for some strange reason! I love them & feel they finished off a project sometimes.

Been using the new Hunkydory Adorable Scorable card & ended up with this, a sort of stepper/easel card. Green's are not normally a colour I use often but its nice the have a change now & again.

Here's the finished said card, placed on my scoring board that's a rather loud colour, A valuable piece of crafty equipment I really could not do without! Thanks to everyone who visited me last week, its was great to see your comments :) and nice to get round desks myself & see all the wonderful & diverse desks of the world!

Dont know what the heck I am talking about? Is this woman nuts? Well I might be that! But this is "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday" go here for more info

Have a great week everyone & take care & keep well & warm!
