WOYWW … First of the year

It has been a while… But I thought my desk had got to the perfect point for What’s on your work desk Wednesday…


Yes at WOYWW there is a bear all session when it comes to the state of our desks. I think at this point I was working on my lap and the spare bed because as per usual it was such a big mess! So what was going on… Well I was in the middle of two messy projects… An art journal page and the February calendar altering I am doing with Darcy… Please see my post on the 4th Jan for more of an explanation! And at the same time making a couple of commissioned golden wedding anniversary cards!


Hopefully that explains a bit as to what was going on. The project I will share with you this week is one of the anniversary cards…


How about that then?


I used the fabulous stamp Darcy designed with the trailing heart leaves as a border, stamped in Sahara Sand, then I added colour using a bit of water and a brush to add the Cherry Cobbler. I did a border on a smaller piece of cardstock too. Mounted the large piece on Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Mounted the smaller piece onto a Glimmer paper (sparkly sparkly) and added a bow using seam binding. The little sentiment topper is then using peel offs… See they can occasionally come in handy! And some added glitter in the form of stickles for the heart. I used the Curly label and the Decorative label to add some layers to this and used dimensionals on the project to help give it a boost!

Right I am off for a nosey to make me feel better/worse about the state of my desk. No idea how I managed to create something at all whilst it was like that?!?

Happy crafting!

  1. pretty card Catherine..and just to reassure you – a very familiar with using an entire desk for stuff and creating elsewhere for the lack of space! Quite interested in your calendar-along with Darcie, must keep my eyes peeled for results!

  2. Lovely card. I’ve been asked for ideas for a 50th Anniversary card by a member of my Craft Class ! Anne x #37

  3. Love the card. And I’m seeing a pattern amongst us. Our Desks are turning into beds, floors, sofas, etc…. Creative Blessings! Kelly #69
