Thanks for all the brilliant comments from last week. My card has gone and is in the lap of the Quick Card judges - unfortunately never to be seen again. I figured that it was about time to stop showing cards and actually get down to the point of the bloghop and show my workdesk. I'm proud of managing to get round all of the desks over this last week and am in awe and envy of more than a few. So for your delight my desk of indeterminate purpose - in this case craft table :) On my craft space is the start of my christmas effort, we are off on our summer hols the end of this week (beautiful island of Arran) and there may be 'gulp' no internet access - it doesn't bare thinking about so I may go a little quiet. Anyway being away does not equal no crafting so I'm getting my craft store ready :) You can nose around at your leisure it is all a work in progress. I guess most people have a source of caffine, the poisons of my choice is always in easy reach!
Thought I'd also give you one of my competition entries (so many of my babies are being judged) the competition closed yesterday - so more of thoe lovely owls. I know that iris folding is a little out of fashion at the moment, but when I first saw these I knew I could make my mum a happy lady, it is only my 3rd or 4th one and I had to do the template for this myself so a little bit of a work in progress. The embossing folders are Tim Holtz (one of those got to have things love the wood and brick textures) inked using versafine for added depth. All card is from the papermania colossal pad - my stock cardstock. The duo of cards came about as the cutout was used for one and the imprint for the other. Lamp-post was pierced from black card. Right I'm off to do packing 'see' you all in a week or 2. If you want to join in click on the WOYWW link on the right bar for the low down.
