What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - Week 383

Hello Everyone,

Oh my, where did last week go! It seems like only yesterday I was linking up with Julia at Stamping Ground to join in with Week 382 of her blog hop. Famous the world over, it's a favourite weekly stop for nosy interested folks like myself who look forward to seeing what's other crafters are up to and what is on their desks.

And here's what's on my desk today. After seeing a wonderful card made by Cornelia at Stempel Spass yesterday I was inspired to get out card, stamps, embossing powder, and gold paint. Truth is my stamps have been tucked away in drawers, forgotten and neglected, for months so it was about time they saw light of day again. I've concentrated on airing my favourite wooden-mounted stamps - there's plenty enough to keep me stamping for quite some time. Just as well too, because I haven't really begun making Christmas cards yet and if I leave it any longer I'll start to panic. What am I saying? I'm already panicking!!!

That's me for today. Nicely brief ... just as Julia prefers.

Happy WOYWW,

Hi Ellie. It's lovely to see you're busy being creative. I've made a few card toppers but got lots yet to make so must get busy too before it's too late....I'm rather busy with my Memory bears at the mo...they are proving rather popular :-)
Hope you have a great week.

Well you may have only just started your Christmas cards but it's looking good so far. I have been trying to get a closer look at your stamps - other people's stash is always so interesting, especially when you can only catch glimpses of things!!
Happy card-making and happy WOYWW!

It looks like it's going to be a great card. Some of my stamps are tucked away too. I forget I have them sometimes! I really need some sort of organisation but I'm not that good at it.

Have fun crafting!

Hello Elizabeth. It is always so much fun to pull out things we have put away and bring out to be the new play toy once again. I exactly know as I am being to panic also I haven't made one Christmas card yet....just not in the mood might have to pull out the Christmas music to motivate more.giggle giggle. Have to say your card is turning out beautiful.Have a wonderful week Hugs Always ~Anne L#8

Hi Elizabeth, it's great to get back to something after a break, I think. Good luck with the C cards! I'm off to have a look at the link now. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #4 xxx

No, you were right the first time, we are all NOSY! Otherwise why else would we turn up week after week...ok, it's the friendship, ideas, sharing, camaraderie, enabling....hmmm, there's a bit more to it than simple curiosity, huh?!
Hugs, LLJ 10 xxxx

Here's hoping breaking out those old stamps really inspires and gets you motivated to get to the card-making. Don't panic, I'm sure you'll create some really wonderful cards.
