Workdesk Wednesday and a catch upand more Cword Cards

I really am a rubbish blogger just now. I'm not great at posting and even worse at blog-hopping! This is mainly down to two things, one is that Cword thing and all it entails, the other is Bejewelled Blitz - which I've got to stop playing if I am to stand any chance of getting my generally self-imposed Cword commitments met!

The actual Cword cards are going fine - I think I've made enough to cover my send-out list, my card box is looking nicely stuffed!
Here are a few more of the ones I made on Sunday.

I made the stocking template and cut them out with Mr Robo. A layer of thim card, then the stocking shape, then the twiddly bits on top. They don't really take long to make then the cards are easy to put together. The papers are MME Merry Little Christmas and as usual the cards are pretty simple - I try to let the paper do most of the work. The only extras are the sentiment and a few blobs of gold Stickles.

If you check the card and scrapling combo on the post below this one you'll recognise the design I used for putting these together! I really liked the way it worked so used it again for these cards.

Wednesday comes around pretty quickly and about half an hour ago I remembered that Wednesday means WOYWW and I hadn't done my photo. Just made it before it got too dark.


When I look back I do wonder if my desk is really boring to look at - nothing much changes from week to week, it's always a whole lot of mess surrounding a teeny bit of green mat to work in ah well, the goof thing is that thanks to Julia I know I'm not the only one who works like this!

Boring? Are you kidding? I'm mesmerised by it! I see you are a good girl and label your Queues. Is that becaueyou have a tiny guil/OCD about things like that or becuase you need to know colours after you've used 'em for articles and things?

Hi Kathy. I'm glad I'm not the only one who clicks on your desk photo to have a proper nosey. Is there such a thing as workspace envy!! I love your drawers full of stuff and everything going on.
I'm also with you on the Bejewelled thing. I play it on Hubby's itouch in bed and suddenely realise it's 1am and he's fast asleep!! Still I've got some impressive scores. My other half hates it 'cos it's one thing I can beat him at-what sad lives we lead!!
Love the C Cards, fantastic.

Ha Ha Kathy, unfortunately, my work desk is nowhere near as interesting as yours, I have to have a coner of the dining table and it all gets cleared away for tea and then got out again afterwards so I have no interesting pots and potions about, hence the desk envy!!
I've looked for Bejewelled for the Nintendo without luck but the itouch works for me, it fits in my pocket, although I do have to ask to borrow it first!!!! It's handy for those boring waiting rooms etc though.
What scores have you got!!

Traceyr said...

No Kathy you are not alone haha. I see you have thrown away a glossy accents bottle - used it up already? Well I am not surprised you have made an extraordinary amount of Christmas Cards. Those stocking ones are fabulous.

Please excuse my lateness, I'm still busy catching up on desks before this wednesday looms :D

Definitely not a boring desk, like Susie I'm very nosy and always lean in for a closer inspection. You always have so much going on. Love it.
