Good morning folks!
I am writing this at an early hour as I have a two day library conference and probably won't be able to blog or get round to you folks for the next few days....last week I managed to get back to all the ones that called in at my blog plus a few others but I am swamped with work at work so no time for anything extra - next week I will be off work then I can relax and enjoy a few days and maybe even write a sensible post...:-)
So as for today I have a rather tidy desk - I haven't been crafting since Sunday (Monday and Tuesday I have been at work all day) but I have a few bits of my work to show....I have been making "clean" Christmas cards - what that means they don't have loads of embelishments although I have been heat embossing a lot and stamping of course....
So here is my desk with the cards....
And here are a few the cards I have been making - you will see what I mean with "clean" cards.....
I quite like these cards and I think I will be making more of this style - It still takes time even if it looks quite simple!
Well besides these cards a thought I would show you a detail of my crafty room....the shelf with my stickles, glitters, shimmers, mists and inks (big and small)
So there that is all folks for today - I better get into the shower and rush off! I am going by bus today as it is such a nightmare to park in the city!
Have a lovely snoop around and I will get to you eventually !
Hugs to allCardarian

Sorry to hear you are working at work. I understand how that cuts computer and crafting time down. I totally LOVE these cards. They may be simple to you, but to me they are uncluttered and very elegant. Keep them coming. I love them. Happy WOYWW (#15).ReplyDelete
You have certainly made some lovely Christmas cards. It's lovely to see part of your craft area - very organised. Best wishes, Kym xxx (WOYWW No 24)ReplyDelete

Don't work too hard, leave some energy for crafting more of those lovely cards. Your desk looks very cosy with the subtle light and looks like it should have a nice glass of wine on there too!ReplyDelete

The cards are lovely - I still need to come up with an idea using my Christmas fabrics.ReplyDelete
All that wonderful colour! I love your inky, glittery shelves. And the cards are beautiful. Simple cards can be more work than complicated ones, but you have to make them to know! Excellent job.ReplyDelete
Great cards D, I think the style is called CAS or Clean and Simple. Love all the inks and potions, I'm a particular fan of Memento inks too. Hope your work week goes quickly and you enjoy your time off next week.ReplyDelete
