What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #286

Nothing today, or indeed yesterday. Well nothing crafty anyway. I took delivery of a large order of books. It came in not one, but two boxes and I have been wrapping them, before packing them back in the boxes, ready to deliver or place under our tree, when the time comes. I can assure you I am not usually this organised!

I do have something to share though. Remember that screen card (you can see the finished article here, if you’re interested) that was in the prep stages last week? I put the punched out stars to good use as the ‘filling’ for this shaker card. A simple stamped background and envelope flap to match. A glittery star for added bling and some silky silver ribbon for that all important touchability factor.

Short and sweet this week. Linking up with Julia and the deskers, of course.

How clever of you to do that tag with the left overs. I love it. Might have to make some stars to make this tag too. (or something similar) #3

You must have been up early this morning...number four eh? Lol. Love that card, especially the sparkly star...even better that it was a snippet from something else!
I'm going to take a leaf out of your book and get some early wrapping done so big fingers don't go wandering :-)

Oooh! that card & tag are so beautiful. I can't find your X is for, would you send me a link? I love how different our October projects are/were as they both reflect our different interests.

Lisca Meijer said...

Oh I love that card! And the idea to use little tiny punch outs that would otherwise end up in the bin.
Have a great week,

Gorgeous card, love the colour scheme and a fab way to use the punch waste. Well done with getting the pressies wrapped up straight away, I really should do that but I never do and then end up doing them all in a rush LOL

hello Fiona,

Oh, I wanted to see the books - I LOVE books! I would say you are organized, wrapped presents and adorable shaker card ready for the recipient. Luckily I've been Christmas shopping a bit and don't have much more to do. Yay.

I've had my Thanksgiving meal so it was a perfect time to visit desks - either that or take a nap!!

Thank you for visiting me already! Happy belated WOYWW
Hugs,
Kay (21)

I have never made a shaker card but I really must; they look like so much fun! Don't feel bad about your desk being empty, mine was this week as well!
Hugs and see you again soon,

Nice card, I like your one layer stamped house card on an earlier post too (and the lovely wooden screw drivers-shame I don't know anyone who is "handy" to buy one for!).

Thanks for visiting my desk already
