WOYWW week 51

Well it's Wednesday again so time to show you my desk.

I have moved room and now have a much larger room to craft in.  The desk is not to bad today.   I was making some cards for challenges yesterday so all the backing paper pads are there and a pen from orlando that my mum brought me back.  There is also a ATC that I have just received.  For those who are interested Smartie is still here and was busy playing with her ball this morning so not avaliable for photos today.

Passion for Promarkers

It is Passion for promarkers 1st anniversary so they have lots of amazing prizes for their challenge.

How I made this card

I stamped the images and coloured using promarkers.  I guess I need more practise at colouring though.  The sentiment was stamped using stazon and the edges gently rubbed around the ink pad.  3 acrylic stones added  for the finnishing touches.

Polka Doodles Challenege 19

This is my entry for the Polkadoodles challenge.  The thyme is Dimension and Texture. 
They have a feebie download that is to be used. 

How I made this card 

The letters dad were printed onto card and cut out .   I then printed 2 sheets of the backing papers from the download.  I used the text for the front of the card and the lines for the back.  I punched 3 holes and put binder rings through them.  To give the card dimension and texture I attached some of the lovely ribbon to the binder rings.

Well it's Wednesday again and there is not much on my desk today. I have been away for the weekend in my caravan so got lots of crafting done but nothing on my desk apart from Smartie who is still here. I have had a few people interested in her but no one definate yet. But I am getting very attached to her so I hope she finds a home soon or she will end up staying here. She is now sitting on my shoulder purring.

Fabs Christmas Card Challenge Week 19

Fabs Christmas challenge this week is Cosy and/or Inking

How I made this card

The decoupage image came from popcorn the bear cosy and warm cd.
The backing paper is from a old Chris Warner cd that I have had for years.
Not a great deal of work in this card but it is nice for a kids xmas card


Well it is Wednesday again.  I am sorry that I never got to look at many desks last week as I wanted to spend precious time with Jafari before he left.  I have spoke to his new owner and he is having a ball.  His sisters left on Friday and one is very happy in her new home as I have had lots of pictures and a video of her playing.  Smartie wasn't so lucky she went away on Friday morning and was returned on Friday night due to her new owners other cat being very aggressive towards her.  So Smartie is now looking for her forever home.
Smartie on my desk

Some people asked about a storage unit that was on my desk last week so I thought I would show you a better picture of it.  I got it from my local craft shop.  It's a carousel and has 60 small round plastic storage tubs on it.
