How's your desk this week?. . . busy I hope, pop over to see Julia at stamping-ground to see what's happening on desks all over the world, but beware it is addictive.
I have to apologise for my desk at the weekend, I hope you don't find it too traumatic, it's not for the faint hearted LOL
I got a bit carried away, it became a little over loaded with 'stuff'.
Yes I know, they look a bit like Christmas cards, 'coz they are Christmas cards.
I decided to get ahead start for next year!
Actually I really enjoyed making them, I think because there was no pressure,......just playing . . I made 36.
I wanted to use some stuff up before I put all the Christmas crafty stuff away for the summer, especially the raffia as it is very messy.
I love these little gingerbread people, they were free from simply homemade. I coloured them with aqua promarkers. I am going to pack everything away now, so no more Christmas yay!
Anyway back today's desk. This was taken at the end of 'play' yesterday.
I have not taken part in Grungy Monday for a while (Christmas got in the way), so now it's catch-up time.
LInda at studiol3 asked us to make our favourite tag from this years 12 tags of Christmas.
I didnt get time to play along (although I did watch the first one) so I'm going to start with that.
I brought the pinecone die with some Christmas money (lucky me).
I said earlier no more Christmas so here is my Spring tag. See how it is done by Tim Holtz
The roses (made with the pinecone die) are fab, although, it took me a while to get the hang of the technique and when Tim says' use CARD stock'. . . he means use CARD stock..... NOT thick paper. Also, I didn't have a glue gun so I used glossy accents and waited ages for it to set!
Anyway I will try to get to everyone who visits this week.... promise and to see as many of you as I can manage
