WOYWW, Getting back into the crafty mood!

Hello my dear friends!

I hope you are all well and at least some of you are enjoying the lovely autumn weather. I was at a library conference last week - you can see the post about that here - and I must admit we had lovely weather and the colors of autumn were fantastic. Coming back home the weather is not so nice - mostly cloudy with rain every now and then! But I guess if I am at work all day it doesn't matter what the weather is like! 
So lets get up to the crafty stuff....I have been making cards mostly....but first up is my really messy desk it is a major push back situation, I will have to clean up because I think there is no room for crafting anymore...

I have all my washi tape out ( and I haven't even used it! ) inks, stamps, TH DIs, scissors, chomper etc... I just don't know how I manage to make such a mess making just one card! Huh!
And here is what I made....it is a card for a friend at my DBFs MG club, they will have a big party for his 70th but unfortunatly I won't be there - he, he but card will be! He is a big fan of cricket so as you can see the card has that theme! 

I also started making Christmas cards again....I said I was going to make 1 Christmas card a week and by the end of the year they would all be done - never happened - I did it for about 2 weeks and that was it!!!
So here is my Christmas card .....not in a festive mood at all yet but I really don't want to be making cards the last evening before Christmas.....

So there that is the story of today at Cardarian's happy place!
I hope you have a good snoop around. and enjoy the day!
I will be visiting!
Lots of hugs to all of you


  1. Lovely Christmas Card - gorgeous background. The gents card is fabulous! What a lovely way to display the different elements.

  2. Ja res ne vem, kako ti uspe narediti tak nered...:):):) Pri meni ni nič bolje, še posebej takrat, ko mi ne gre kot sem si zamislila, ko prekladam in prekladam. Čestitki sta super, posebej praznična mi je zelo všeč.

  3. Super card you've made, sometimes we need all our stuff out to create, even if we don't use it!! Take care Zo xx 70

  4. Fab cards Dolores. Don't forget to pop over to mine to share a glass of bubbly with me today :-)

  5. I really like that christmas card background it looks awesome did you create the background too? As for mess I am with you, for some reason it looks like a tornado comes through when I create a little card, don't know why either.

    Happy WOYWW and happy crafting.

  6. What a crafty desk there! That is a lot of washi! I had to stop buying for now as I don't seem to use it as often as I should so I have a lot. Great 70th bday card! I especially love the Christmas one. Such a fun background too! Winnie#73

  7. Great cricket card, but I really like your Christmas card. I spotted that stamp on your desk first thing.
    Haven't started Christmas , yet, but really need to push in that direction.
