WOYWW 379

Good morning hot deskers...
Not sure what I mean? Hop on over to Julias gaff (lol)...for the What's on Your Wordesk Wednesday to find out more.

I hope I'm going to have more time to visit all your desks this week as Mum seems so much better and is therefore taking less time to care for.

This week, instead of my table, I am showing you my desk again.. all neat and tidy with some unfinished Christmas cards.. I can't show them to you yet though as they are for my DT at Merly Impressions for October. I'm getting ahead as I am going away in a couple of weeks and want them finished before I go.  



You may remember that I had a 'play date' (lol) last week so here is what I made then.. two little canvases with a Christmas theme. I'm going to get a couple of frames to set them in.




I also had a crop on Saturday and, as I've been getting good use out of my newly rediscovered Cameo, I managed 6 layouts..yep 6! I'm so pleased. I cut the files before I  went of course.

First this one.. using the sketch for Stuck?! Challenge Blog.. using fabric as the large central grey strip too. Photo taken back in June for our 36th Wedding Anniversary




Then this one also celebrating our wedding anniversary in June.


I also made this one for the White and One challenge blog.. this month yellow was the order of the day so here is mine. I used yellow mist on the paper and added the Cameo SVG cut then layered all the soft elements, tag and title.




Then this one of my little GD Amber when I (rather wickedly) gave her a piece of lemon to try! her face was a picture so of course it had to be scrapped. I used my kit from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for this one.



Then this which was a photo I was really keen to scrap as it was a really great moment when DH and GD were playing hide and seek around a huge tree in Penshurst Place. I used my Counterfeit Kit again for this one.



I used a sketch from Turtle Crafts UK to join in there new weekly Thursdayskecth challenge. They are a new monthly kit shop so if you're in to scrapbooking they are well worth a look.



Then this one for another sketch challenge over on the Stick it Down blog. My GD watering the plants (well her feet actually..lol) and again I used my Counterfeit Kit.



Finally I made a quick tag too.. here for a beach themed challenge on FB.



So that's it! Not much to see... lol

Thanks for stopping by.. do call back soon.

  5. you're right to frame those little canvases, they are beautiful. Great use of the cameo on your lo's, I used it also last week, it is sometimes frustrating but it is amazing how detailed it can cut. happy WOYWW Vicky

  7. Wow Elaine - busy busy busy. Your LOs with the cut files from the Cameo are rather inspirational. I've got one too - but mine is only an A4 jobby. DH is threatening to treat me to the bigger one but I need to be using my current one more now before I will commit to the cost. Plus they keep bringing out new ones!

    Your craft room is very neat and tidy, an oasis of calm and inspiration... love it.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Goodness, Elaine. One busy lady! Thank you for your visit and your kind words. It's not going to be easy - John has been around for so long I my life. I feel a bit like a spare part at the moment - with unending oceans of time each day! I had been John's full time carer for a long time.
    Take care. God bless.

    1. They are mini RUBs (Really Useful Boxes). They come in a tower of 12 and I have three of them. I store all my tiny embellishments in them, like tiny bows, candi dots, novelty buttons, tassels etc. They are so handy to have them so accessible. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my post.
