WOYWW - 07 March 2012

The beginning of week has been a busy one and the time has flown by.  With DH away in London (he is due back later today) I spent Sunday & Monday evenings having a tidy of my craft desk & corner.

I can't believe how much time tidying actually takes, however, the good news is that I now can find everything I am looking for again LOL.Being Wednesday it is time to join Julia over at the Stamping Ground to have a look at desks around the world :)

So this is the latest picture of my workdesk (& surrounding space):

What is it about an empty desk, it just can't stay empty for long LOL.

So once I took this picture I just HAD to start on another card, based on a sketch I had seen on someones blog who takes part in the 'Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge' Blog (Sorry but I couldn't find the blog Post)...

I started with the inner piece of card along with some ribbon, I then found an A6 card base with a colour that I felt would work well.

I placed the 'topper' onto the card base, but felt that something was missing - Just not sure what!!!!

Attempt No 2. Moving the 'Topper' to the side to place ribbon down the right edge,

but I'm still not happy
In the end I had to walk away from my desk as I needed to get to work LOL - Well, how else I am going to get money to spend on more crafting goodies :)

If anyone has any suggestions on what might 'Look Right' for this card, please let me know.

  1. Well done on the tidy up Helen, its something I keep putting off for another day!! I love the card, although I personally think the ribbon down the side is a bit heavy for the image, I quite liked it as it is in the middle photo! I love the owl image :)

    Have a great WOYWW and a fab week, Luv Karen xx
