WOYWW #243

Good morning, I've been "missing in action" for a couple of weeks, I've had the "lurgy", so haven't felt like crafting, feeling a lot more human now so have actually made a card, only one though, ...little steps

Here is my desk for today:

As you can see I am still playing with my new Lavinia stamps. The background to the right is a bit of playing with my Luminarte Silks acrylic glazes

Here is a close up of the card:

Really loving these stamps, just used a few distress inks, and a bit of sparkle:

bit blurred, but you get the idea.....
That's all for today. Off to Julias blog to look at all the other desks

bye for now

Whats on Your Workdesk? Wednesday #240

Normal service has resumed...I would like to say I did loads of crafting over the Christmas holidays (I had nearly 2 weeks off) but I didn't do any, unless you count trying out my lovely new Pebeo gilding wax on my Jack Daniels bottle whilst sat in bed on Christmas morning. Both items were a pressie from hubby (why else would a bottle of Jack Daniels be upstairs?), I say both, but I actually received all 3 colours of the gilding wax, I was only expecting just one (aren't I the lucky girl?) also had the new underwater Sheena stamps (they are in the photo of my desk - as yet still unopened - told you I hadn't done any crafting). Anyway this is last nights desk as I don't have time in the morning to take photos as back to work already...

....and a closer look:

As you can see I also had some had some Lavinia stamps for Christmas form my mom, love these stamps so ordered a few more, hopefully they will be arriving this week. Here are a few close ups:

You can just about see the sparkly bit on this photo

This one isn't quite finished yet, just waiting for the other stamps to arrive so I can add a bit more sparkle.

The other card is actually one of my caught in crystal cards, I loved it so much that I didn't add anything else, just left it as a piece of modern art

and a close up, you can see the gold flakes, this would make a nice background for my new underwater stamps, hmmm...that's a thought...
That's all for now, off to Julias blog to look at all the other desks
