WOYWW time again!

Where did this last week go?  I am another year older, but not necessarily wiser and certainly not tidier as my messy desk will attest to. Here it is in all is glorious crafting mess as my entry for this weeks WOYWW. In the back lefthand corner you can see some stamps and cards that need putting waay, and in the foreground you can see my current work in progress, complete with the heat gun as I have just done some heat embossing with Metal Magic (not on my craft mat I hasn't to add!).  My craft mat has been used to mat the embossed image along with my metal ruler, DST and craft knife.  Notable by its absence is my mug of tea - it is currently very late on Tuesday night and even I don't drink tea this late!
Here is the completed card which I made for this weeks Less is More 'silver' challenge.  I use silver Metal magics embossing powder on the free falling star stamp from this months Craft Stamper, matted onto silver origami paper which is textured and then used some silver edged ribbon. I am also entering this into Delightful Challenges 'winter holiday' challenge. Apologies for the rather poor photo, it is very late and I couldn't get the lighting right.  That is all from me for now.  Have a great rest of the week.
Love,
Caro

busy and creative desk there! I really like the card with the metal embossing! One of my favorite colors too! I love coffee and tea and drink it from the time I get up till I go to bed! At 60 I still don't seem to be bothered by the caffiene. Have a great week. Vickie #41

Well done, I haven't even taken my stamp off the magazine yet. Like the way you have used the stamp, very silvery.
