WOYWW, a LIM Valentine

Hello and good morning to everybody!

We are having a very cold morning - still no snow but the temperatures are about  -8 deg C and we have a very strong wind blowing from the north so cold, cold, cold! I haven't been around  much of you last week as I was busy running around doctors as I finally had my MR scan and I needed to get some answers why I am still in so much pain....well they found out 2 things are pestering me - one is the injury from when I fell into that pot hole on the pavement and the other is a degenerative disease called Osteoarthritis....together they make a lovely combination of pain and suffering! And not much can be done about it! So I haven't had very good news this week! Still I will try to stay positive and at least do some things to prevent it getting worse! I won't go on about it today but I will write a post about it some other day! Today of course we have to show our busy or not so busy desks! Well mine hasn't been too busy this week still I do have a few things to show....
Here is my messy desk.....the right hand side of it.....


and here is the left hand side.......


In the middle you can see a card I have made for Less is more (LIM) - the challenge is a sketch - I really made it simple - used 2 different washi tapes, a mini ric rac ribbon and I stamped a heart cut it out and covered some of it with Glossy accents....added a sentiment and Bobs your uncle as you English say the card was done!

 


Here are my two boxes of  tapes ......





and as last I will show you my clean desk - this is as clean as it gets - after I have taken the pictures above I tidyed up and this is the result....


Ok then I hope you enjoyed the snoop, there is much more to see at our HQ where Queen Julia is in command! 
Have a lovely day and  I will be swinging by!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

  1. I haven't visited you for ages and now here you are visiting us at LIM!
    It's so great to see you with this fabulous card... I've never used washi tape but I'm inclined to give it a go seeing this!
    Thanks so much for participating and do come back next week for another CAS challenge!

  4. Love your card and as for the tidy splurge... you are catching up on me!
    all that washi tape gives me severe envy. Thanks for popping in on me and I'll skype soon.... now we'll be able to make arrangements. I'm here waiting by the phones to hear how DH's operation went and when I can go in to see him.

  6. Sorry to hear your dr's visit hasn't helped much, I really hope you manage to get some pain management sorted out soon. Probably a good idea to google it and find some things out for yourself! Beautiful LIM card and I really love that tape. I love how it's so prefect and architectural and then the heart and the sentiment are wonderfully grungy! Great combination.

    Hugs

  9. Sorry you are suffering from osteoarthritis. I have arthritis, but mine is a birth defect. Wow, I love that card, and all that tape. I have NO tape, so that stuff looks amazing.

    I also dropped by to tell you about the AB class. I know you wanted to do this last year, but I'm not sure I ever sent you the link to the other blog. However, now I am offering it on my regular blog, so please drop by if you are interested in taking the free altered book classes. I'm # 30 this week.

  12. You're a brave girl having all of your paints, etc. so close to your computer. I'd be scared silly of spilling something on my keyboard ;-)

  14. Phew, tons going on here today then! Sorry about the osteoarthritis - I've got that too and it's not at all nice (understatement). Follow the doctors orders - you could try cod liver oil capsules as they seem to help me a bit. Di xx

  15. Sorry to hear about your 'pain', not good at all! I love your craft space though! lol, and the card is fab, I don't mean to make light of it, it is horrible being in pain, i know, i take a concoction of pain relief including morphine and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Your desk wonderfully inspiring full of crafting goodies, hope you have a good week, without too much pain Gentle hugs Lou E @ #26

  16. Love the tapes, I do feel for you, my DIL has severe back pain problems, and I know she has struggled for years with pain management.Sha has been looking into Alexander Technique- apparently it is very good for these sort of problems. Shaz

  17. I love that Less is More Card, so beautiful, simple and elegant. So much better than overly fussy!
    I also liked 'Bob's your Uncle'!! English has so many wonderful idioms and sayings. Another good one is 'For Pete's sake' if you're exasperated about something - who was Pete?? LOL. no-one knows....
    Hugs, LLJ #68xx

  19. I agree with Di - cod liver oil seems a good option. Do hope it improves - its probably worse in such cold weather too. I love your heart card and sentiment is brill.

  24. Sometimes when I am in pain, I go to my craft room and I forget all about it! I was recently diagnosed with this collapsed bone in my spine and it was excrucuating! I now go around with a sort of corset to suport my back!

  25. Sorry to hear about your diagnosis and hope you can find some form of treatment to ease your discomfort.

    Fab desk and loving your LIM creation too

  29. Your desk is lovely and tidy! That fabric tape look interesting. I hope you show us what you are doing with it. Yes, I've been making ATCs for ages. I have folders full of them mainly from swaps. Hope you are not feeling too badly.

  33. Your desk is really colourful, have you noticed? Love your collection of tapes...I honestly think they are one of the most useful additions to stash...I could cheerfully have more tapes than ribbon! Love the card, very bold.
