What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday 190...... Doily's!

 Hello everyone & thanks for popping by to too have a peek at what I have been up to this week on the desk! This blog hop is the brainchild of Julia Dunnit & you can find out more about what's going on here over at her blog at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ Maybe you could join in and let us peek at yours too!
 This week I have gone a bit mad for doily stamps, love them & had a right good time with them too.
 I have embossed with them as well as stamping and even used gilding flakes. Used Distress
Markers & glitter some as well as trying Sakura Stardust pens, been a while since I used those!
 As you can see the gilding flake worked out really quite good, at the middle & edges I 
either did not put enough glue or did not press down evenly enough on the stamp.
 I used Indigo Blu's Flitter Glu and Sweet Poppy's Sunset Red Gilding Flakes.
 I will try more with the flakes love the effect!

 This finished card I used Cosmic Shimmers  True White Embossing powder Distress pens & punched out hearts. Looks a bit folk'y to me?  Anyway hope to show the matching dies with these stamps next week sometime. We still have snow here although its not as cold!  Perfect weather to stay in & keep warm drink Tea, Eat Cake & Craft! :-) Have a crafty week everyone!

What's On Your Workdesk 189?......My first of 2013!

Hello everyone & welcome to my WOYWW of 2013!
As you can see my desk is quite tidy.
I have a pile of stuff to the left to sort, my cutting mat every ready to work on & my latest book I am reading. I have re-arranged my big storage shelf to the left a bit to start using some of the flowers & vintage ribbons I have, thus trying to encourage me to use them a bit more in my cards.

The other end of the desk has cards I need to finish & sort in to cello bags & boxes. Mr Binxz is sunning himself in the window, lovely bright but very chilly day to day. I put some bunting up above the window I made for a vintage tea party I had last September.

These are a few cards I have made in the past few days, I like the Leanne Ellis stamps, I wouldn't say I was a character type crafter as I am not that good with the pro markers, so I tend to do basic stuff with them. 

So that's me this week! I have had umpteen problems with my broadband, Sky, Blogger & bla bla bla for ages now so that's one of the reasons I haven't joined in or blogged for ages, plus I got Married in the US last November and was very busy up until then. Hope to catch up with you & your desks sometime this week! Take care everyone & mind how you go in the snowy & cold weather we are all having!
