Welcome to a rather late posting ....
It's What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday today and I was beginning to think that Mr Mojo was no longer in the building as, since my tag, I've not even thought about crafting - unusual for me.
However, physio yesterday saw me in better spirits today and, as the day's worn on, I felt I SHOULD hit the table of craftiness - if only with the camera!!
Whilst on a blog/forum hop this morning I swung by the Auntys Forum and one of my crafting compadres was talking about a set of freebies she'd been using and had made 22 cards with!!!! YIKES I thought - I HAVE that set and have yet to crack the seal and there it was - a germ of an idea. I HAD intended to make a CAS card for the challenge of wheels but there really isn't much that could be further from wheels .... or CAS than this card .... check it out - I think you'll agree but hey, I already have someone in mind for this card, someone who will be 90 this year and will fully appreciate the melding of conventional and modern styling.
Here are the papers - they came with the chipboard sentiment and some toppers too .... from a recent issue of Card Making and Paper Craft
Here's how the desk looked mid way through - I have a sneaking suspicion that I should really have tidied BEFORE I started as it became obvious that I was having to move things around before I could really do much - ooopsie, what is it they say about the benefit of hindsight? All well - too late to worry about it now!
Hope you are enjoying your Wednesday
