Mid week? Already?

Morning and welcome to Wednesday - hump day Wednesday or What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday - which you prefer,

Spent most of yesterday glued to the series II of Downton Abbey, having the DVD boxed set - riveting stuff - anyone else watched it? I missed it live by being in the U.S. but, having enjoyed the first series, wanted to catch up. Can't wait for series III

Crafting yesterday afternoon and made one card which fits three challenges, these challenges are:
52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown - A Christmas sketch
Cute Card Thursday - snowflakes
Auntys forum - December challenge to make a Christmas card featuring a snowflake or bauble
Craft Mad and Loving It - December challenge - Water, Ice or Steam
Card Makers challenge - Let it snow

Materials used:
  • White deckle edged, 300 gsm, C6 card and matching envelope
  • Silver mirri card panel - 12½ cm x 5½ cm
  • White card panel - 12cm x 5 cm
  • Chocolate Baroque snowflake (Craft Stamper freebie) stamped three times using Memento Paris dusk ink
  • Icicle stickles to highlight
  • Hero Arts sentiment stamped on to white card using Memento Paris dusk and cut out before matting on to an offcut of silver mirri card.
For those of you who may have missed the post which featured the sketch ..... here's a reminder

I chose to make mine a Clean And Simple card and I think this image works well with in this format - hope you all agree.

And here's how my work desk looks this Wednesday - decidedly neither CLEAN nor SIMPLE!!

Have a great Wednesday everyone - it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Your snowflake card is absolutely GORGEOUS kathy. I think this is one of the best CS freebie stamps I've ever recived. I love how you've used it stamped in that vibrant blue. How fabulous to be able to enter so many challenges with it too - I never seem to manage more than two with any of my creations LOL

I daren't show pix of my workdesk at the mo' it's spreading through the house from the conservatory through the dining room into the lounge at the moment. I've convinced myself it's organised chaos though !!

Oh me, where do you work and make your beautiful cards?! Which this is. I counted five challenges (I bow before thee) not three, but then I also write about BS, so I'm prolly not counting right! You really should win at least one of these challenges, it's yummy!

Mynnette said...

This is beautiful! LOVE the snowflakes and the glittery details! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT! :)
