Another What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday is here and once again I don't know where the week has gone. I did try to get round as many of you as possible this last week but, unfortunately, I didn't make it to all - this Christmas thing has just taken over my life completely! So apologies to those I missed and I will try to visit you all this week.
Not much to show morning - last night completed a card and tidied everything away ready for the next project. However, there is a couple of goodies from Sir Stampalot there- yeah, the postman got through : ) - the Christmas edition of the Magnolia magazine to browse through and draw inspiration from - a bit late for this season but, as I intend to get ahead of the game for next year and produce one Christmas card a week in 2011, it won't be wasted. And a Penny Black Stamp, Winter Bow - it's beautiful and I can't wait to do something with it!
I'm almost at the end of the Alphabet series now - just two more to do. I was almost stumped for what to do for V until I received the Hinny Bop CD, Santa's Christmas Treasures. I originally got this for the inserts - I'd admired them when I saw them on some cards of Ginny's - you can see an example here on her blog, AsIDoRodos. The contents are vintagy and from that the theme for the card emerged - V for Vintage Christmas:
Materials Used: papers & image from Santa's Christmas Treasures CD; gold and lilac cardstock for matting; paper lace borders by Siesta; purple Prima flowers; white rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts; lilac/silver ribbon; silver stickles; glittery brads; glitter; inside greeting copied from an old Christmas card!
And here's the insert I used:
I have another card to post, hopefully later today, if the light improves and I get some decent photographs - roll on the lighter days! In the meantime, I'm off for a cup of tea.
Bye for now,
