What's On Your Workdesk? Wedesday #439

Last Wednesday passed me by, but I'm back this week to share the cards that were in the making when I last showed you my kitchen table.

























Simple, yet effective. Looks like much more effort went in than actually did. My favourite kind of card. Ideal for mass production at this time of year.

























More work in this one, of course, but I need something a bit interesting to break things up. Masking, sponging and stamping. One of my favourites so far this year.

Linking up with Julia and the Deskers this afternoon.

Hi Fiona, love both cards. The op one is simple but very effective, and love the masking, sponging and stamping of the bottom one. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #6 XxX

Elegant and simple, what's not to like?! They'd be the ones I'd buy in the shops 😍 Great to see you on the desks today, sending hugs...

Nice works Miss Fiona, I think I could pick your style from a line up now, it's the one I always admire and cannot reproduce....just can't keep things simple and elegant!!

That's a pretty card, and I'm glad I'm not the only one blogging about Christmas this week!

Well, that's spooky - just a few minutes ago I saw the same little houses die on a Pinterest card and tried to find out who made them and then I open your blog and there they are! I love what you've done with them - I am really into the clean and simple look, but just can't recreate it, I never know when to stop! Anyway, thank you for showing me just how gorgeous the dies are and that they need to be purchased!!
Have a great week,
Diana x #14

I love both of your cards! I do need some Christmas inspiration - I tend to make all my cards unique, I need to do more mass production! Otherwise I don't make my own deadlines! Thanks for sharing, have a great week! Lindart #36

Love both of the cards. I've started to cobble together a few bases but won't make many. Will cheat and do some digital ones to post on people's social media! Take care Zo xx 26

Great cards, Fiona - Diana Taylor and I have been saying how much we like circular motifs! The cards I made a couple of weeks ago were masked, inked and stamped too. Great technique. I love the embossed snowflakes on the first one, too. Great stuff.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #5
