 Hump day again so that must mean baring our workdesks led by our lovely Queen of Desks, Julia via "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday"

So the past couple of weeks I have been able to do some crafting, I am SO pleased as work has taken over my life in the past 6 months so I am trying to get some 'me' time in the craft room.  This week it is all about Christmas cards (naturally) and of course using up old stash too (which is what I have been trying to do for the past year or so).

This week I have been using some sticky motif's that I have had for AGES (and yes, they are still sticky-joking aside, I have had these for YEARS and that shows how well made a product they are as they are as sticky as the day I bought them).  I played with some gilding flakes (remembering NOT to cough whilst the lid was off the tub) and used some black and gold scraps from the scrap box.

As to my "Man Bites Dog" cards-well.....not sure what to say about that-so moving on......

Here are the finished cards:



  1. oh, we can only hope...... well done with the cards.. I am flagging now, resorted to booking time off work. Helen #?
