I may just make this on time - by the skin of my teeth!
I'm back to saying that I can't believe another week has passed! Time is starting to fly again. I suppose it's because I went back to work on Monday after my lovely Christmas holidays and I was trying to get back into a routine before I went back. I don't know why but I always get my routine way off when I'm on holidays - I usually end up sitting up all night and sleeping all day. It's not good.
But anyway, at the rate I'm typing this post I'll be back on my holiday routine and I'll have to find a blog that does "What's on your workdesk....Thursday"! (This, of course, is meant for Julia's "What's on your workdesk Wednesday")
So the desk is a little tidier than last week as I still haven't made a card in 2012. It's that old excuse of trying to get other things done before I start new ones.
I've moved the laptop back to it's spot so I do actually have somewhere to do some work - should the notion grab me. I just have a couple of bits of jewellery I was repairing and a cuppa to keep me company.
My other desk looks a little more different though...
I've now got my new printer in situ, but it hasn't been installed yet and that's the printhead thingy sitting on top waiting to be plugged in. I've also moved my beloved markers out into the open. They used to be where the printer is now but I much prefer them where they are now. Where I can see them. And hopefully one day, use them!
I have used them, though this card is one I made ages ago and I thought it was about time I blogged about it.
It was for my cousin who had just moved house.
The image is by the lovely Spyder and I coloured it with copics (I think, it was a while back so I'm not totally sure now) I think the paper is a Stampin' Up! one, but again, I'm not totally sure.
I used an MS punch and some ribbon from my stash and made the ribbon flowers by twisting and sticking ribbon onto a circle of card. I finished off the centre with a wee diamante flower from my stash. The sentiment was computer generated.
The sentiment on the inside is from Waltzing Mouse as are the wee shamrocks stamps. I just cut the image and inside randomly with my knife and metal ruler. I added another flower to the inside which helped to stop the card from falling over as the front was quite heavy.
So I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
