A messy workdesk!

Well it is Wednesday and time for WOYWW again.  Mine is comparatively messy today as I have all my distress inks, craft sheet, sponges and numerous stamps out to attempt to make some altered tags for a swap I have joined in with one CM&PC forum.  I have never really altered tags before so this was a new adventure for me resulting in mixed success! As usual there is an almost finished mug of tea (I don't function without at least 8 mugs this size every day) and the trays at the back of my desk are chaotic with things shoved in them, but my excuse is I know where everything is...well I know where everything should be, although it isn't always where I think it is...you only have to listen to all the huffing and puffing that happens when I can't find something to know that my so called system doesn't always work! 
Here are the three finished tags for the swap - my favourite is probably the pink lady
This is a card I made for Gran's birthday and it fits with the 'punches' challenge from a spoonfull of sugar.  I also used a new embossing folder for the green stripe down the edge and promarkers to shade in the foxgloves.
This card is a simple stamped Christmas card coloured using distress inks and it fits with the Stamp, Scrap and doodle challenge of Christmas cards but no red or green.  That is all from me for today...I wont be updating as usual on Friday as I am off to my parents in Somerset...back to business as usual from Monday.  Have a great rest of the week and weekend.
Love,
Caro

Really there's nothing better than gazing on a desk that's fully employed - and covered in yummy inks! I really like the tags. Hope you have a happy weekend!

Great desk! Love to see a project in progress! All your tags and cards are beautiful! Well done you :)
I am a big tea drinker too, so there is usually a mug on my desk somewhere!

Thanks so much for the sweet words you left on my blog. I'm still moving slowly, but trying to start visiting people who visited me. I was totally impressed by all the tags. Some very lucky swappers will be happy. And your card was great, too. Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).
