What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday

Still here.  Doing a lot of Christmas related stuff and like many others need to keep it away from the lense so people don't end up seeing what they've got before it is given to them!  Managed to fit in some Christmas cards so thought I'd get in while I can.  I have two main requirements this year, cheap and quick.  So it's what I already have or what comes with magazines :). This lot were the result of embossing folders -  I tried the inking trick but didn't like the results. I'm off to the NEC tomorrow (carnage will ensue) and on my list are some gelly pens to put in some colour.


Now on the bad news front the interview didn't work out so it is going to be a poor crafting session for me until next May.  On the plus side my Roald Dahl card (see some earlier posts in September) was a winning entry so I now have lots of delightful stuff I probably don't need!! but who cares.  However a trip to Switzerland to visit good friends and their 5 month old baby girl mean all batteries are rechargesdand ready to go. Below is a panarama of the Alps looking across Lake Geneva:

Good luck with the job hunting.

How fabulous about the Roald Dahl card - it was very magnificent.

good luck with the card production, I too am trying to use all existing stock but putting a new slant on it - inking, embossing, paper weaving etc. Then i will have a really good excuse to spend money. enjoy NEC, caroline #16

Well done on the winning card! Love the panorama of the Alps too, stunning. You know, we could probably ALL get by without buying new stash if we had too, so don't feel bad that you're using up supplies, we should all try that once in a while! Says she who bought another pack of Christmas paper yesterday!!!

Your view of Lake Geneva is breathtaking. Takes me back to my hols in the Alps. I just love them!!
Lots happening on your desk. Have you tried inking the folders with distress ink using the cut and dry foam. Don't over do the ink and it works beautifully.
