WOYWW, Cards, cards and more cards!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

I missed out on last weeks action - guess why? Forgot it was Wednesday! The weeks just turn around sooo quick I simply can't keep up with what day it is! And as I am now retired and don't go to work it really doesn't matter except if I want to do WOYWW! So that is my excuse for last week! Back now and in full swing making cards! The mojo is up and down but I am cracking on....so here is my desk!

What you see there in the middle is a background I have just made for a card. Then there is my brand new PINK ATG gun! I have one at home in Slovenia but I decided to buy one here because I got fed up with messing about with double sided tape! Still I was messing about for an hour to load the tape into the ATG gun! Grrrrrr! At home I never had a problem but here I just couldn't get it right! Anyway it is now in use and okay! Behind the gun there is a pile of cards I have made! Still have to make around 30! And ATCs for the crop and well I would like to sew some decorations for Christmas! I see all sorts of ideas on blogs and pinterest but I just can't decide! 
Here are a few cards I have made recently.
Christmas cards first as tis' the season........ 



2 birthday cards.....


an last a sympathy card...



That is all I will show you for today! I am late posting as I was watching the gripping series Missing! Oh I wish they would show the whole series in one go - it is painful to wait a whole week to see the next episode!!! Huh! 
My dear friends have a lovely week, keep crafting and I will see you when I come to snoop around your blogs! And some of you I will see very soon at the crop - looking forward to that!!! 
Lots of hugs to all of you,
CARDARIAN

WOYWW on Thursday! My first Christmas cards!

Hello my dear friends!

I am late, very, very late! Coming on WOYWW on Thursday instead of Wednesday???? So sorry but yesterday we had a busy day and come the evening I was so tired I just couldn't do the post! But I am here now and will link up if I still can!
My desk has finally come into the Christmas spirit! I was happy to start on the cards - it was hard at first as my mind was completely blank but eventually I got into the mood! I only have 50 more cards to make so hopefully the momentum carries on for a while....:-)

To start with 2 blue - snowy ones........


Crafty individuals lovely London Christmas stamp....

Background stamp is Hero Arts, snowflake is Simon Says Stamp die!
This is a religious one I made with one of the stamps I inherited from my friend Jo..... 

And this last one is a bit modern - background is a My Favorite Things stamp and the tree is a Papertray ink die!



Thats all folks for today - I will try to come round more this week - I have been a bit busy these last 2 weeks but by the end of the week all my busy times will be over!
Have a lovely week and see you as I snoop around your desk!
Lots of hugs,
CARDARIAN
