WOYW 160

Hi everyone, just want to thank you all for the warm welcome last week, not sure if my comments appeared anywhere, hope to do better this week if not!!

 Ive just unearthed  my sons 40th birthday card , I started it weeks ago, I must have had a fit of inspiration that day, story of my crafting really, start a project and then spot an amazing card or idea on a blog that someone has made so I just have to have a go, that accounts for all the bits hanging around the place.
Anyway not too sure I like the thought of being the mother of a forty year old, funny I can remember my mum saying the same thing to me when I moaned about being forty,  his birthday is July 27th, starting day of the Olympics so he has the joy of seeing the big clock ticking away the hours and minutes to his big day, really cheers him up! especially when he has to pass it every day, poor boy.
This is last weeks card, finished, one for my box of stash.
Hope you all have a good, and sunny week, weather here in Spain, scorchio!!

What´s On Your Work Desk 159

Hi Everyone, this is the first time I´ve joined in and as you can see this is all new to me.
 This is me being tidy,  I cant usually see my desk when I´m crafting, so really pleased none of you can see the rest of my craft room at the moment.
 A friend gave me the website to ,  amazing ideas , so after spending a whole evening looking at everything on there I decided to abandon my Christmas cards for a while and  have a go at a folding card, this is mark two as the first one didnt go as planned!

Well I think Ive finally made it and so here goes for my first post ..... I just thought I would share with you a card Ive made for the Splitcoasters All Occassions Masculine Challenge. I inked my Cuttlebug folder, Wheels and cogs with Stormy Sky distress Ink and  ran it through my Big Shot. The Oval greeting was made using the smallest spellbinders beaded oval Die along with the silver peel off.
The topper was cut from a recyled card that Ive had stashed away for about three years!! I just knew it would be useful one day.
