What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday

Morning readers,

I'm off out to lunch with a pal today, leaving hubby in charge of the last few Christmas deliveries - YAY!

It's the penultimate day of Kylie's 12 Days of Christmas challenge today too so .... a more masculine take!

My card

With my MISTI batch making is so easy
The card front, back, inside and reverse of the envelope

The fronts of my "mini batch"
Materials used:
  • White 10cm, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card (for each) cut to 9 and 9½cm square
  • One piece each (for each) of red and grey card, cut to mat with a small border
  • Using my MISTI I positioned my Cats Pyjamas image, stars and sentiment stamping in Versafine onyx black and grey (for the inside of the card)
  • For the inside only I stamped the Inkadinkado "Merry Christmas" sentiment using Versafine onyx black ink
  • I added dashes of colour using my Kaisercraft glitter gel pens and my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:
  1. Kylie is Addicted to Stamps - TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS challenge - DAY 11
  2. Craftbubble2½ (membership required) - Rudolph Day challenge - USE RED AND GREY
  3. Cardz4Guyz - challenge No. 50 - CAS Christmas
  4. Try It On Tuesday - December 6th challenge - CELEBRATE

Well, here we are again, WOYWW, this is challenge No. 393 and my entry (with the photo below) is #10

What a fabulous card - I love how you have used those stars over the top of the glass. Now to look at the manufacturer - I might just have to buy that stamp.
Enjoy your lunch today and keep using the Misti!
Thanks for your visit earlier and Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Hugs, Neet 6 xx

This is a marvellous masculine card Kathy and who wouldn't enjoy a cracking Christmas cocktail, and your desk has the look of busyness about it too with all the Christmas cards you have been making. x

The New Years card is very cute! And I see peeking out from below the dog stamps - the stamps I used on my cards! Your desk is piled up with lots of creative things! Thanks for sharing! Lindart #35

Nice card, like the idea of the image on the envelope, like a big 'old clue as to the contents! The sight of your desk pleases me very much, a small section of my desk looks like this too, although with a bit fewer purple accents!
