The challenge in my craft room at the moment is to wade through all the Christmas stuff. This first pic is just a small amount of the 'didn't quite get finished one year' stuff. Amongst it I found a set of 3 cards ready to go - must have been prepped for a class which makes them from at least Nov 2019 and I suspect considerably earlier. Anyhow, when I find these bits all cut out and ready to go it's a lot quicker than starting from scratch.
Here's my desk with the original design on the left and one of this year's efforts 0n the right. Two more to go. I have just noticed that that deer only has 3 legs. It's kinda bothering me now.......
The 4-square card topper is from the card I made for my son this year. Unbelievable I know but my children don't tend to treasure my works of art. So I took the topper off and will re-mat it onto another card for someone else this year. Do you recycle your Christmas cards? I must admit I no longer do anything with 'shop' cards - they go straight in the recycling. (I used to cut them up for ATCs but I already have more than I'll ever use). Handmade cards I receive I like to keep for a year or so, (my favourites longer than that!!) but after a while I do get rid of them but try and recycle any parts that I can to make a new card.
Finding the grey days difficult but there is the odd one that lifts your spirit. I'm no Helen, but thought this bed in the local park looked lovely in the sunshine last Sunday. The sky!!
While I'm here, this is the finished card that was on my desk last week.
So, why am I showing you my desk? Well it's our weekly Wednesday Blog Hop - WOYWW. Here's the link to the one responsible, the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground - pop on over and join in, see what it's all about and join in yourself.
Have a great week, stay well, stay safe,
