Whats on My Desk Wednesday and a Special Card

Hi there My Friends.
I have pulled myself out of my languid state of limbo, made a list of all I want to do and today I got very busy!!
Here is a sneek peek at my desk, I am working on a project for Simon Says Stamp and Show guess my word? I will show you the project's almost done....woopee!!
On Monday I was wondering about a background , I was thinking of a faux metal technique that Tim does and then yesterday I saw Bella's blog and that was that, I also used the gears and tissue paper, on black Gesso,but after inking I used clear embossing powder....more of this tomorrow....
This  drawer is also lying in my scrapbooking area....I am planning to make a cork board out of this in inspiration board...I am hoping to marry photo 1 with photo 2 another drawer...we will see what happens...
Now if you want to take a look at more very very interesting desks. Pop over to Julia and see everybodies working areas...
Yesterday was my youngest daughters' time flies!
Here is the card that I made for her.
I used the sketch that is on Get Creative mmm I tweeted,I mean tweeked it a little ,I am sure it is fine.
I mounted some Kaisercraft "Sweet Nothings" on some craft looking cardstock...I used a scrap of Tiffany's for the sentiment do you remeber this paper line it is from WRMK.?
The birdcage is from Sizzix..thank-you Elvira and the paper lace is also from Sizzix die Vintage Lace.
So tell me ladies what is so therapeutic about colouring in??
 I had so much fun making my little bird...
That is all for now...catch you tomorrow.


  1. I'm terrible at guessing words but I do love that butterfly in your project. The bird card is wonderful too! Have a lovely Wednesday! #183

  2. Beautiful card. Waiting with great interest to see the corks and photo one together...?

  3. Your cork drawer looks amazing. That looks like a few bottles of something good have helped out there.
    Your daughter's card is so pretty, I love it and I bet she did too. I hope she had a very Happy Birthday.
    Happy WOYWW

  12. A a crafter that doesn't do a ot of colouring in, I'm not overly sure, but I'm going to guess that however hard you try..your mind just wanders off and the colouring is almost happening by accident! And you get to play with more than one colour at a time. the bird is lovely, as is the whole card. How many bottles have you drunk then? You can add draw after draw to this!

  13. Super pictures, love the corks and your project looks fab too. Take care, hope you enjoy this week's WOYWW, have been snooping in shifts but I'm getting there! Zo xx 77
