WOYWW - Cards & Masks !

Hi hope everyone is well & not too stressed with too many things to cram into life before Christmas !

Just a short post this week as, although I have been busy crafting, I can't show you too much until my Christmas cards are received where they are headed !

So just a few photos to show you all !

 This was me crafting away on Saturday afternoon, Christmas songs CD on the player & making cards for my family & my friends at Scrapclub !

This is my desk now - with a whole flurry of card stuff still under way & the new masks that arrived from Stamps Away today ...

 These cards for for my nephews - cute découpage & papers free with a card making magazine !

And my new masks - I love poppies as you may know - so that one was irresistible -
! Loved the leaf border too & think that will be great for garden & nature type scrapbook layouts as it is 12" long.
On the left are the new aperture masks for inking frames and things - these will need to be played with - they looked good when demo-ed on the telly though !

To get you in the Christmas spirit - here is a house in the next village who go mad for the festive lights - raising money for charity - by the way that's Welsh for Merry Christmas written in lights over on the right !

And I couldn't resist showing you the photos I took of these teasels on a misty freezing morning on Sunday !

Have a great week & look forward to seeing you work desks this week !

  18. You look like a sweet little Elf beavering away! I thought the desk you showed was all the stuff you took to the craft club with you! I was going to say you'd need a Tranny van to cart all that around, never mind a rolly bag on wheels!! I'd have to move if I lived next door to that bloke I'm afraid! Love the wintery teasels.

  19. I love the lights on the house - but am kinda glad it's not mine. How generous of the owners though - it's a lot of trouble. *Waving* there you are being busy - at least this year I'm done with the cards..will be bragging about this early finish for years!

  20. Hi Ali - the Tag Journal was supposed to be an Art Journal but I hadn't really got into AJ then. So I ended just sticking my tags in it. (what would I do with them otherwise indeed!) Here's my latest page http://ccraftcorner.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/tag-journal.html Ending up having two months a spread plus other pages inbetween. Been quite a good way to keep my 2012 projects.

  21. Great cards and papers, and that poppy mask is highly covetable! Love the teazels - what great photography. Happy WOYWW!

  22. Looking very busy there making all those lovely cards! (love the gingham paper) We put up lots of Christmas lights but that house leaves us way behind! Thanks for sharing the "frosty" picture..very pretty.

  23. Cute cards! I love those masks and can't wait to see what you do with them. There's always something about teasels that is so interesting. :-)

  24. Some interesting masks! My new fav tool! Hey thanks for the helpful hint about Photoscape...I need to check into that. Oh, love the pics of the teasels! Nan 85

  25. Looks like you are having festive fun and getting lots of great results. Beautiful teasel pics and I love to see the lights but on other peoples places.... too OTT for me and I wouldn't like their energy bill!!!
    Thanks for visiting me and for your comment too..Jo x

  26. So much to see! Lovely cards.

    Also really enjoy your festive background!!

    Happy WOYWW
