Contemporary Christmas Card

During a recent gelli session I pulled out the neon paints :)  So so much fun...

This card is a result of an offcut of the gelli print, the last little bit of 3mm ribbon and a few sequins.

It is ridiculously bright.

I'd like to share this at:
Make My Monday - Contemporary Christmas (They said not your traditional red and green... I don't know if they expected neon yellow and orange!!)
Snippets Playground (told you I'd be back...  didn't expect it would be this long a wait though)

I've just photographed a few more projects for the Advent Event - I'm getting there slowly!  Be sure to join us...

I'm back!  (Ha! Take that M.E. - you won't hold me down!)  And it's Wednesday so I get to look around tons of desks for inspiration :)

Here is what mine looks like:

A gelli print ready to be torn up and collaged.

The down side of being out of action for so long is there are four lists of things to do...

One of the things on one of the lists is to sort and display/put away these little bits of crochet my Mum has made.  She comes to show me a new pattern she has mastered and I nick it for scrapbooking!  Perfect embellishments!

If you leave your WOYWW linky I'll be sure to visit you :)

Alpha Challenge - Q is for Quail

My ME is not being kind to me or my memory at the moment.  I have no idea if I have a few days left or a week and a few days left but here is my entry for the Alpha Challenge.

Q is for quail...

No photo of the double page spread as it was blurry :/

Now TBBT and then bed, hopefully visiting some fellow Alpha Challengers in the morning :)

I'm having one of those '...well, if you don't enter you'll never win' moments...

And this bundle looks too good to not have a chance - how ever miniscule it may be - of winning.
See for yourselves at ScrapFriends

Happy WOYWW!  My Mum asked me if I was 'wesking' today... huh?  Wednesday Desking.  Yep!

Today my desk is full of numbers...

Hopefully by the end of the week they will all be attached to my calendar
(can't show a picture as it's a present!)

Other than that, for me, it's quite tidy!! :)

A few heads up: has a UK giveaway I thought a few WOYWWers might be interested in.
Crafty Ribbons are at the NEC this weekend - if you are going take this!
If you aren't going (like me) and feel bummed about that (like me) leave a comment here to be in with a chance of winning a voucher instead!

Thanks for stopping by

Alpha Challenge - N is also for Nautilus

I'm back with my second page for The Craft Barns Aplha Challenge.  So chuffed that I've got two done.  My intention is to carry on after the challenge has finished and fill up my dictionary with animal and bird illustrations.  I don't expect for a single moment I will get every page done but it'll be good to try.

Anyway, N is also for

One of these...

A Chambered Nautilus.  Quite a cool creature really...

Thanks for stopping by :)
