What happened? (WOYWW)

What happened to this week?  I can't believe it is Wednesday already!  Thank you all for your messages of support last week...everything went well at work.  I have spent the past 10 months putting together a new Masters course at the University where I work and I finally received all the approvals so the course is now live and open for applicants!  We just have to wait and see if anyone applies now.
This weekend Alex and I braved the wet weather and headed into Sheffield city centre for the Christmas market and the lights...he wasn't sure about the Doctor Who stuff,
but was very impressed with the shark in the fountains.
As it is Wednesday already here is my desk which I am sharing as part of WOYWW.  It is remarkably empty at the moment (the result of working from home yesterday). To the very left is a pile of Christmas papers and embellishments with an even larger pile on top of my smash book.  My mug is half-full of lovely hot tea, and you can see my Christmas tapestry stamps at the back of the desk alongside some others that need cleaning, as well as my latest card and a pencil!
This is the card that was on my desk which i have made for Less is More's 'Glammer & Glitz' challenge.  I am also entering it into All Sorts 'Bring on the bling', FTT 'gold or silver' (gold in my case) and SSSS 'project with heart' - the gold charm is a heart shape.
My next card was very simple, a free patterned paper mounted on red card, and then on the base white card and embellished with a red and white corrugated cardboard tree.  I am entering this into Delightful challenges 'red and green', Kaboodle Doodles 'stripes or polka dots' (there are both), and Ooh La La 'spots or dots' challenges.
My next card uses papers and images from Crafty Individuals with a little hand drawing in the corners.  I am entering this into paperplay 'sweet angel' and Delicious Doodles 'something that flies' challenge.
Finally I made this card using a Purple Onion corner swirl stamp, a sparkly green tree stamp and two different sized gold stars.  I am entering this into DCM 'twinkle twinkle little star' challenge.  That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone and I will try and be a bit better about visiting this week.

Wow. That sounds like a busy week. Great that you managed to create so many cards though. Thanks for taking part at the Daring Cardmakers challenge (... though I must admit that I like your angel card best =))
