Wednesday again!

Well it is Wednesday again. I simply don't know where the weeks are going at the moment. Yesterday morning we were a little more organised that usual and so had a few minutes to kill before walking to school so Alex decided that he wanted to sit on my lap, at my desk in the study, and craft.  He used my circle cutter and tapestry stamps to make himself a badge which he was very pleased with.
It is time for WOYWW, the brain child of Julia (click on the link to see what I am talking about!) and so here is my desk.  This photo was taken last night as I will now be at work (this is on a timer, if I can get the timer to work!). On my desk you can see my trusty large mug of tea, my cuttlebug and some embossing folders, and various Christmas papers, a rubber and pencil and hiding half behind the cuttlebug, some ink pads left over from Alex's stamping!
Needless to say I have been working on some Christmas cards. This first one used a scrap of paper from Crafty Individuals as the main image. I just love these two cute little angels together. I used an embossed frame as the background and added fake stitching in pale blue pen to match the image, and then two mistletoe images. This card therefore fits with CCC 'two's company',  Pollycraft 'friends' (they look like friends to me!), Simon says stamp & show 'women only' (I hope these two young ladies count) and MTTC 'take two'
This next card was made using the same cuttlebug embossed frame and a free stamp from one of last years magazines (possibly CM&PC) coloured in with promarkers.  I am entering this into CCCB 'four legged friend' (who could resist that cute cat!).
This card was made using tapestry stamps and I am entering it for PIO 'traditional Christmas' as it is a traditional Christmas wreath.  I am also entering it for cards for men 'Christmas' and LIM 'leaves' challenge although it does contain a few flowers as well as the leaves!
The final card was made using free papers, a cuttlebug embossing folder and a free stamp.  Not bad going really!  I am entering this one into the SCSC 'spots and stripes' challenge.  That is all for now folks.  I hope you have a great rest of the week.
Love,
Caro

Aren't you smart, getting your Christmas cards made ahead of time?! They are darling! I love the Cuddlebug embossed frame on your card! That is awesome and the stamps you used on the interior of it are really cute. They give your card an entirely different look. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy

Lovely cards as always Caro. My GD who is 4 loves to make things sat at my desk.

PS I was at Sheffield last week with Auntie for a check up. She is doing well. She asked after you as well. I have been trying to get onto Cardmaking forum but cannot- even though I did send my details. Have sent an email to Alice so we shall see tomorrow. Anne x

For being # 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry but, after a computer crash, I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration from your Christmas inspired desk. Love ALL those cards.
