WOYWW #287...Post Thanksgiving blues...


Hope everyone is good.

It's that time of the week where we swing by and visit Julia at her blog Stamping Ground, so we can nose at everyone's desks..join in why don't you...

I am feeling a bit blah after Thanksgiving. I really enjoyed the time off spent with Hubby and work is a bit serious right now :(

Anyway the 4 day break gave me the opportunity to have a serious play at my desk, so what you can see is what's left from a couple of epic sessions! On my craft mat you can see a new SSS stamp set (Dec card kit) and a heat embossed item (done using the card kit embossing powder and a BF Heidi Swapp stencil)..I am making a card for my Parents...

There is also sheet of coloured sticky dots..more about them next week :)

To the left of my photo you can see this -

Its for a work colleague based in Cleveland, we have just finished working on a huge project together and she was truly amazing to work with and I wanted to send her a little something. I made the card a bespoke size and made a matching envelope too. The stamp is by Hero Arts and was on my desk last week. I die cut it using a Spellbinders label die.

Elegant and simple. Perfect for my colleague.



  1. Awww, sorry to hear you have the blues & hope a little creating makes it better. Love that card, very elegant.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the comments.

    Happy Woyww,

  2. Post holidays always seem to be followed by a blah session! Hopefully, you will pop out of it soon. Creating art always helps me... it's just the getting started part that I find the worst! :D What a sweet idea to send your colleague a handmade card to say thanks for being a great person to work with! :D We need so much more of that in the world... you are off to a good start! :D Look forward to seeing your creativity next week... til then,
    Hugs my sweet sister in art and happy WOYWW,
