The good news is that this cold is just lingering and being a nuisance - the bad news is that I flipping well hope it isn't biding its time to put in a full appearance nearer to Christmas. You know what I mean ......Footlights! Strike up the orchestra! Then out onto centre stage, wearing top hats and sparkly suits - tap dancing like mad with the occasional high kick comes....'The Star of the Show' - The Full Blown Cold and all its little friends such as the Cough, Sore Throat and Co.
Anyhow - this is my desk as I left it yesterday, and on Monday for that matter!
This is the top card from the front pile - another Ribbon Tree Card:
- white 7" x 5" card stock
- Woodware 'Christmas Ribbon Tree' stamp set - coloured with Pro Markers
- deep turquoise backing card from stash
- patterned paper by Nancy Watts, free with Making Cards magazine
- stamped sentiment using a free stamp kit with Simply Cards and Papercraft
- Josy Rose nail heads
This has to be one of my very favourite stamp sets, it's amazing how different it can look just by varying the colour scheme and there are some softer ones somewhere in that pile of cards on the desk.
My chum Kath has thrown down a challenge for Friday Feast - her comment made me hoot with laughter - apparently her 'lesser half' (grin) was saying they eat too much meat so could I please do a recipe bearing that in mind but 'none of that Italian muck'. Your wish is my command Kath!
Have a great Wednesday folks - and happy snooping!
a very tidy desk indeed but hey you have obviously been busy making lots of gorgeous christmas cards...thanks for the crafty snoop...Happy WOYWW...hugs kath xxx (33)ReplyDelete

The tail end of colds just become tiresome don't they. Hopefully, you've had your dose for this year. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.ReplyDelete
What a neat desk, you are so tidy. Can you come and organise me..... pleeese!!
I'm loving all your Christmas cards, all so different.
Oh Di that desk is far too tidy and organised .. .. LOL!!!ReplyDelete
You missed someone out of the chorus line for the Full Blown Cold .. .. the sore red nose that is such a fetching look alongside breathing through your mouth!!
On that lovely note I will leave you!!
Have a good day.
Love Jules xx
Hi there and thanks for the peek into your creative zone. It looks like there is loads going on so thanks for sharing. Hope you have a brilliant week and have plenty of creative time!ReplyDelete
In reply to your comment the easy answer is.... the fabric panels was a gift from Jo[zarty] for the babes and I'm really sorry but I don't have another one....but of course what I really mean is...even if I did noone could afford one if I made them one :-) :-)....I really wouldn't want to count up the hours I've spent making them....but I love them loads.ReplyDelete
Hi Di, your craft space puts mine to shame. I like to think the mess I leave is the "artist" in me, but no one believes that. I see from the photo that you've been busy with the Christmas cards. Lovely stuff and yet another thing I need to get a shimmy on with.ReplyDelete
I hope you feel better and I'm sending you a Gute Besserung with this post.
There'S loads of time left to get rid of that cold!
Hi Annie. I knew they would be a one off, so intricate - no-one could afford that amount of time and work so it was very much tongue in cheek :)) Di xxReplyDelete
What a great tidy desk, your cards look lovely and you are so organised. Have a great Wednesday. LauraReplyDelete
I kept writing items used on bits of paper and losing them too - now I use a book to keep all the information in but unfortunately I have lost that too at the moment! oh well I am sure it will turn up! Thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl – No 4ReplyDelete
I LOVE that ribbon tree card!! I'd buy it to send to my friends and family :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for your kind comments, it has been a very busy week, there's a couple of fairs still to come but mainly it's band that is going to be manic for the next few weeks. Concerts, busking, carols, you name it, we're doing it!
Hope your cold goes away very soon,
Hugs, LLJ #40 xx
Oh you are just trying to make us feel bad... just look at all the CARDS you have done or almost done.... WOW!!!ReplyDelete
And the card you showed is so cute too...
Now that you took the pic you can go back to bein messy again...!!
Thanks for todays peek!
Wow, you have been busy - lovely C card there. Hope the cold either doesn't develop of it it does then makes a speedy exit.ReplyDelete
All so neat and tidy there Di - your cards just waiting for the off! I had my first card here the day before yesterday and another one today!! Mine are still in a very unfinished state but I will enjoy having a day sorting and getting ready although I hate writing them all!Hope you are feeling better. x JoReplyDelete
Gosh hour desk is so neat and tidy and you have been so busy with your cards. They all look so interesting and that stamp looks very versatile. Hope your cold goes soon!ReplyDelete
Loving the different colours of the ribbon stamp, how dare you show such a tidy work desk, I am at the stage where I can't find anything.ReplyDelete
Take plenty of vitamin C, doesn't stop the cold but stops it lasting as long, high dose too.
Chicken will be fine as it is red meat he moans about. But Mrs Beeton I do have a question for you... what is pork classed as?
Very tidy workstation Di! Quick question, where do you buy your card blanks from? Those and the 6" x 6" cards? I've run out today :-( thanks a lot xxReplyDelete
Definately tidy! Love the versitility of a good stamp! Great colorting! Happy WOYWW! -Amanda #21ReplyDelete
Very nice looking work space. Love the Christmas cards! Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great week! Vickie #67ReplyDelete
You need to be careful, you almost make that cold sound like fun!! Lovely pile of cards you've got ready, just the chore of writing them now! I long ago came to the conclusion that I love the making more than the giving when it comes to cards, especially at Christmas when you have such a big pile to do!ReplyDelete
I missed WOYWW this week. Wasn't up to par and can't do the snooping this week because I'm a bit behind. I hate getting sick!! Looks like you've been super busy Di and you've done an awesome job on all those cards - WOW!ReplyDelete
Well done, finishing all those cards. Sorry you're still suffering with the cold. I'm much better than I was but feeling totally wiped out today so haven't done anything much. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #62ReplyDelete
Wow you have been busy and you are so tidy. Such lovely cards.ReplyDelete
Your cards are lovely and look so organised. Mine are stuck in a box, still waiting for their inserts. I usually do a separate insert for each person, but this year, I think I ma going to follow your example and do something more simple, and personalise them as I write them. By the way, I love that "Italian muck", so any recipes on that line would suit me fine.ReplyDelete
Well, Di, your desk has put me to shame this week - it's so tidy. Funny, but I keep the recipe for each card on little pieces of paper too - never thought of using a wood-mounted stamp as a paperweight though :)And, yes, they do get lost too! Hope your cold has gone off to pastures new by now. If I'm making an insert I do it there and then - it probably wouldn't get done at all otherwise. Oh, and I think we must have been on the same wavelength this week because my recipe is almost meat free and definitely not 'Italian muck' - perhaps Spanish though!! Elizabeth x #111ReplyDelete
