WOYWW - 14 December 2011

Only 10 days remain until the Big One... & I'm still making Christmas Cards!!!!

I have sent out all that need to be sent by post (all of which were hand made this year), those that I am doing now are for people that we will be seeing between now & Christmas Day. As I am in a Christmas mood I decided to get a head start on the cards for next year (great planning or wot???).

As for What's On My Workdesk Wednesday - My desk this week is a bit busy...

Ok, I did warn you... the most important thing on the desk at the moment is the Tea! I am freezing!!! 

As part of a 'CAS' selection of cards I decided to use a number of wooden ornaments brought from Create & Craft this year.  One set were Christmas images so using a selection of pens & glitter I have jazzed them up a bit...

Then using my distressing inks I created a background.  Some have snow & sky, others are just a single colour.

So far I have created 4 cards, with more to follow using the ornaments I have already coloured...

Also on my desk is a number of printed sheets from my new Joanna Sheen CDs (From the Heart of the Garden).  One of our team at work has been diagnosed with Cancer, I have been asked to make a card that we can all write in to send our best wishes.  So I thought that as this person enjoys gardening a card featuring flowers would be good.

Happy Wednesday to you all.
