WOYW Wednessday & more C-Word cards

I usually end up writing my BF projects on Wednesdays, but I got it done yesterday instead. As he he spent most of the day on the phone, I couldn't do the load of Robo-cutting I really wanted to do - Mr Robo isn't exactly a subtle, quiet soul so it was find something quieter to do or horror of horrors, attack the ironing pile.

Good job that for once I had my proiject ready to go early!

So today I can show my desk in action I remembered it was WOYWW day and grabbed the camera so quickly that I didn't even put the lid on my glue stick!

This is the sort of mess I usually end up working in - about enough clear space to lie a card down in and the rest of the surface a heap of stuff.

I'll show some sneak peeks of what I was making in a minute.
If you enjoy a good old nosey around other people's workspaces, check out the links on Julia's BLOG to go peeping through those craftroom keyholes.

First of all, it was with good intentions that I sat down ready to make another batch of C-word cards on Sunday. I was really chuffed the week before with the number I managed to make, but the rot has set in already and this week's haul was not only less in number but also, well frankly, they're not great. A couple are OK and a couple will probably be "wallflowers" at the Christmas - left unloved and unsent in the box.

These are OK, too time-consuming to make more than a few of though. I used the same techniques as for last week's DCM card - but only using 3 tree die cuts for each


A couple of these are OK, hate the blue one though and the spotty tree took ages because I stuck my background paper on the wrong way round then had to do a repair job with a different paper rather than bin the whole thing.


This one I quite like the idea of, but I really don't like the Nesties Labels die background. Thing is I can't figure out what would look better.

Finally for today, those sneak peeks I mentioned earlier. Nice colours, eh? Whatever could they be about....

At last I've been able to spend some time blog-hopping - it's been great to catch up with "old" favourites and click some links to find new ones. I'd almost forgotten how much fun, and how inspiring checking out all those crafty blogs could be.

Anyway, I have a couple of things to finish off, and then I need to come up with an idea for this week's dcm. Bit stuck at the moment, :0

Thanks for visiting

Your desk oozes ceativity and your cards are great. My favourites are the two 'triple die cut tree' cards ...maybe time consuming but they are brilliant and I love the choice of papers.

Your desk looks inspiring and homely to me...exactly as I want mne to look! The cards are all fab. Funny how we get hung up on one thing - I think the nesties shape is fine! And well done on remembering the WOYWW..comes around quick huh!!

Angelnorth said...

Yay, a "proper" workspace! The cards are looking good Kathy, even the blue one looks eminently sendable to me. I like that Nestie label with the tree, nice contrast with the white base.
