Morning WOYWWers, Followers and All,
I'm back and I hope this finds you all well and raring to show all :) For those of you who are not so well or otherwise troubled for whatever reason, I sincerely hope things improve for you over the coming week.
Yes, it's good to be back after my non-appearance last week. I was feeling a tad fraught last week, seemed to be chasing my tail, and decided to take time out in the hope of catching up. Did I? NO!!! Still chasing my tail, or, as Julia puts it, 'running a big behind' :) And if you, dear reader, are wondering what I'm chuntering on about, it's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday ... the day I, along with about 130 other crafters, reveal all ... on our desk, of course :) This is a global phenomenon hosted weekly by the redoubtable Julia over on Stamping Ground ... the place to go to join in the fun. So, today I plan to catch up with you all and return to the backlog tomorrow :)
So what is on my desk ... well, just the card I'm working on at the moment and all the attendant fall-out, card, stamps, ink pads, glue tape runner, pencil, bone thingy ... and, oh yes .... ta da, ta da ... the brayer. It's not often the brayer is seen on my desk, but I got it out and brushed the dust off for this card. Under the brayer is my collection of Big and Juicy ink pads ... thought I should release them from captivity too ... the theory being, if I can see them, I'll make more use of them!!! Well, it's a theory :)
Propped up at the back is a print-out of a digital stamp I have lined up for one of the cards in the Alphabet series ... can you guess the letter this will fit? Beside it is my first attempt at the card topper ... messed up the stamping so had to start again ... sigh!
So that's the state of my desk this morning. But not for long ... I'll be finishing off that card and clearing up the mess before starting on the next. Truth is, I'm almost all Christmassed out now, with about 60 cards in stock, and with a few more in the pipeline, which should be enough for this year and maybe even next! So, I've already made a New Year's resolution to leave off making Christmas cards, when I've completed the Alphabet series, till July 2012 and hopefully make time for more scrapbooking instead ... well, that's the plan :)
Okay, that's enough of me blethering on ... time to make a cuppa and settle down to blog-hopping so see you soon :)
