WOYWW, Spring has sprung!

Hello my dear friends!

I hope you are having a lovely sunny spring morning as we are! Finally!!! It was a long wait for this sun but it did come eventually! I was getting really depressed as there was no end to the winter! I am looking forward to the next days when we are supposed to have around 20 deg C! YIPPEE! But first I am travelling to England tomorrow to visit my DBF and also to attend the Ally Pally! I hope to meet a few WOYWWers there! We will have a quick cup of coffee and a chat and then run around to see what is new in the world of crafting and also spend a bit of dosh no doubt! Oh I am looking forward to this event!
But at the moment it is time to show our desks to all of the world! What??? You haven't heard about this mad thing??? Well if you haven't then I recommend you go over to Stamping Ground where our leader Queen Julia has all the info for you!
Soo without further ado here is my desk - still sort of tidy well not really....I haven't had much time this week to do crafty stuff but I did manage to make a card and some backgrounds for ATCs - that will be for our WOYWW swap!


There are a few empty boxes and a pill box which I intend to decorate and use for various crafty things like buttons, thin dies and stuff like that! He, he a bag of jellies, a few sprays and yes those eggs are still there...
Here is another shot of my desk where you can see more of the mess...



In front there are my Dylusions sprays, my Big shot and some digital downloads I intend to use for my ATCs..Also my ATG and lots of other junk - he, he have a snoop you might find something I don't even know about! 
Here is the card that is sitting on my desk but for the purpose of the photo I took it to the kitchen where the light is much better!



This card will be put in for our Slovene challenge CRAFT-alnica  where they have a color challenge - the card was made with dry embossing and then I used the Faber Castell PITT markers to color the embossed bits, added a Donna Downey tag, stamped the sentiment and added a few other bits! 
So thats the crafty bit of my post today and now comes the spring bit! 
A few primroses flowering away on our faculty grass...





And a crocus in full bloom....


Thats all folks! Have a lovely week - I will be away but I will try to visit some of you this week! And I hope to meet some of you at Ally Pally!
Lots of hugs to all of you,
Cardarian

  6. It's a bit more like Spring this week - our birds are singing anyway. Still a cold easterly wind so bring scarf and gloves when you visit Ally Pally. x Jo

  30. Zelo lepa in predvsem zanimiva voščilnica! Lepe rožice si naredila.
    Lepo se imej :-))

  31. Tale voščilnica mi je prav všeč. Ker so pobarvani samo robovi, deluje kot čipka. Lp

  32. Zelo zelo lepa in pa barvita spomladanska voščilnica. Mi je pa všeč tudi tvoj ustvarialni nered, kakor bi pogledal na mojo mizo, nikakršne razlike ne vidim :).

  33. :)))) tvoja miza močno spominja tudi na mojo :)))) no, saj jo na vsake toliko pospravim, samo kaj ko potem nič ne najdem :)))) kadar je pa vse "razmetano", beri tako vidijo drugi, pa točno vem, kje kaj vzeti :)))
