... or to be precise, look at what's on my workdesk Tuesday evening.
I am going to try to schedule this post to appear on Wednesday
(no, don't laugh - as the last and only time before that
I tried to schedule a post I failed miserably -
so if I fail again I'll expect a few titters -
mostly from me!)
Anyway, back to my desk .... I made a card - yay!!
This is a 'tent fold card' which I hadn't heard of before
seeing some in the February edition of
Craft Stamper magazine.
On pages 28 to 31 Joanne Wardle shows how to make
these simple and interesting cards which hold a secret panel -
a pull out strip of card which can be re-used as a bookmark.
Supplies I used to make the card were:
Artistic Outpost stamps - 'London Underground' set
Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection card
A Sizzix embossing folder (I wish they'd put the name on the folder)
Gold Pen, ribbon and a few brads.
What else is on my desk?
The parcel at the front in heart wrapping paper
is for a Valentines Day craft swap I'm taking part in.
I can't show a photo of what I made yet as it's all very secret squirrel!
The pile of papers towards the back are what I retrieved
from the loft last week including my old school reports, old letters
and photographs etc. I am going to use copies of some of it
on a small canvas for the final part of the
- I just haven't got around to it yet - you know how it is!
There's a few wooden blocks on the desk too - I ripped some of the
red rubber (stamps) from them last week - and very satisfying it was too.
I just need to remove the very sticky residue,
and then decide what to do with the blocks.
Finally, on the pile of old papers you may be able to see
a large sheet of pink scrapbook paper, glass beads,
a pink silk flower and a silver butterfly.
These were items sent to me by my lovely blogging friend
who challenged me to a '4 piece swap' -
we send four items to each other and make something
with them adding items from our own stash and then send it back.
I keep changing my mind as to what to make!
At least it's keeping the old grey matter working.

where you can have a great nose around!
Thanks for visiting - if you have a desk on show this week,
I'll try to come and look at yours - and even if you haven't,
I'll still come over - delaying tactics for the 4 piece swap
(shhh, don't tell Mrs A!!)
Ta-ta for now!
